Dear Friends,

Today I want to tackle stress, worry and tension.

Hearing this some friends may smile.
Few friends may laugh also.
Even some may say what the hell he is trying to do?
How can he tackle these three dangerous species!!!

It is quite natural to have many peculiar reactions. Still bear in mind that I am not stressed, not worried and there is no tension while writing this. I will place before you a poem written by me on the above topic. To understand and tackle these three unwanted, dangerous, disliked and useless guests, I am taking the support of quotations on stress, worry and tension too.

Stress is what you feel when you are worried or uncomfortable about something. This worry in our mind can make your body feel bad. You may feel angry, frustrated, scared or afraid which can give you a stomach ache or headache.

When you are stressed you may not feel like sleeping or eating, or you might sleep or eat too much. You also may feel cranky or have trouble paying attention at school/workplace and remembering things at home.

Enjoy reading ……,

Stress, worry and tension
Are they the members of the same family?
Whatever you may do
They never forget to visit you
They are the unwanted disliked guests
Still everyday they may visit you.

They are ready to say, “Good Morning”
“Good afternoon”
And “Good evening”
But rarely say, “Good night”
And “Goodbye to you”.

Our modern day life and life style
Make us uneasy and fragile
Also brings new stress – worry and tension
In new shape and new form very often
Many a time we are …….
Harassed and succumb to the pressure.
Produced by Stress, Worry and Tension.

Stress, worry and tension
Are changing their shape and size
Recreating and regenerating themselves
Ready to harass you in many new forms.
In an aggressive manner……..
They try to overpower you
Each and every day
They want to finish you.

Don’t ask for any medicine
To kill stress, worry and tension
Please keep them at bay
Better don’t open the door
Just avoid and keep them away.

Stress, worry and tension
Are they the members of the same family?
Unity is their strength
Always they want to prove
Three prong attacks they do
They are like three musketeers
“All for one and one for all”
Meaning thereby —
“They will always support and protect one another.”

Better you understand
Your daily enemies
“Stress, worry and tension”
It is must to counter attack them
By understanding and realising
