The list of stress's effects is long and disconcerting. Stress can cause migraines, insomnia, a short temper, ulcers, high blood pressure, lethargy, loss of or increase in appetite, a weakened immune system and depression-making it critical for you to find ways to de-stress.

The key to de-stressing-and to any wellness program-is to take it slow, or you won't stick to it. Start with five or 10 minutes each day, and work your way toward more and more self-focused time. This is an evolutionary process. You can't do all these things at once-don't do that to yourself. Just slip into it, and it'll become a habit.
