    only if it matters to u, this is the power of the mind wich animals dont

    work out and u strong and can beat your boss if u feel like, u happy, if
    u care waht other people thinks no shit u stressed

    in america ppl are stressed partly cuz they work more than they want, in
    conditions they dont like, and get paid less than their worth. another
    thing which is gonna stress ppl out is environmental destruction resulting
    in declining food productions and clean water supplies, not to mention

    i think the main reasons why a lot of people choose not to work is not
    because they are lazy or that they LIKE welfare but because they don’t want
    a) bosses to have control over them and b) customers to have control over
    them. for me at least thats the worst thing about work. having to let
    things slide all the time because you dont want to lose your job when you
    actually just want to tell the boss or the customer to shove it is very

    Very insightful. This will influence how I do certain things. The only
    things I question are that I see just as many stressed people at the top of
    the hierarchy as I do at the bottom. The person’s attitude plays a role as
    well, one independent of the concept of rank. Also, the alpha males may
    have just died because they ate more of the infected meat, since they get
    first pickings.


    Intelligence comes at a price. The human species, despite its talent for
    solving problems, has managed over the millennia to turn one of its most
    basic survival mechanisms–the stress response–against itself.
    “Essentially,” says Stanford University neurobiologist Robert Sapolsky,
    “we’ve evolved to be smart enough to make ourselves sick.”

    Amazing video, must watch.
    A couple of conclusions of mine – hierarchical society/job environment
    where one has little control or low status is damaging to the health of
    that person, his/her future children and society as a whole.
    Eliminate psychopaths/a-males and their system or push them out of society
    and that would heal people and make society thrive!

    This study should point in the direction of how to motivate a stress maker
    into a more acceptable square(attitude arrangement) of perception in
    society. What is ironic is that a complete documentary ends with just two
    words “Can We?”

    Never obey anyone’s command unless it is coming from within you .
    There is no God other than life itself.
    Truth is within you, do not search for it elsewhere.
    Love is prayer.
    To become a nothingness is the door to truth. Nothingness itself is the
    means, the goal and attainment.
    Life is now and here.
    Live wakefully.
    Do not swim—float.
    Die each moment so that you can be new each moment.
    Do not search. That which is, is. Stop and see.

    Nobody involved in this documentary thought that maybe portraying stress as
    such an imminent, terrifying threat wouldn’t just stress people out even
    more? o.o

    He is absolutely correct, stress doesn’t just deteriorate telomeres, and
    shrinks the brain, it does more than that, it wakes up also dormant
    diseases. But the problem is; the susceptibility to stress vary from one
    person to another, some people are cool nothing bothers them, some other
    people are very easily to get stressed. I believe genes and heredity play a
    major role in this matter.
