The Best Remedies to Relieve Stress

Life running you ragged? You're not alone. Originally intended to keep us safe from predators, stress occurs when perceived threats trigger our body's innate "fight or flight" response. Particularly useful when confronted with a charging elephant or hungry cheetah, this hard-wired reaction doesn't do us any favors when we're dealing with traffic or a demanding boss.
