Optimism is the faith
that leads to achievement.
Nothing can be done
without hope and confidence.
The adventure of life is to learn.
The purpose of life is to grow.
The nature of life is to change.
The challenge of life is to overcome.
The essence of life is to care.
The opportunity of life is to serve.
The secret of life is to dare.
The spice of life is to befriend.
The beauty of life is to give.
William Arthur Ward
Negative Effect of physical and psychological stress on the immune system
Psycho+ Neuro+ Immunology = (PNI) Psychoneuroimmunology is a fast growing field. It studies the relationship between our CNS – the central nervous system and our immune system. Now, its clearly found that physical and emotional stress can have a serious effect on our immune system.
The effects of stress on the immune system – Researches show that under normal circumstances, our body secretes hormones to an infection or injury to help destroy germs or to repair body tissues. But In the condition of physically or emotional stress, our body releases certain hormones which negatively impacts our immune system. These hormones can bind to specific receptors and signal the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines*. it is evident that stress creates an internal or external force that threatens to disrupt the homeostatic balance of our body. Conversely, good mental health plays an important role in strengthening our immune system.
*(A cytokine is a small protein that is released by cells, especially those in our immune system. There are many types of cytokines, but the ones that are generally stimulated by stress are called pro-inflammatory cytokines। ).
Stay relaxed, Stay happy, Stay healthy !!
Mind is indeed the Builder . . .
what is held in the act of mental vision
becomes a reality in the material experience.
We are gradually builded to that
image created within our own mental being.
― Edgar Cayce also known as The Sleeping Prophet.
You have to grow from the inside out.
None can teach you,
none can make you spiritual.
There is no other teacher but your own soul.
― Swami Vivekananda
The universe is a complete unique entity. Everything and everyone is bound together with some invisible strings. Do not break heart; do not look down on weaker than you. One’s sorrow at the other side of the world can make the entire world suffer; one’s happiness can make the entire world smile.
— Ronald Reagan
