The Theory of Cumulative Stress: How to Recover When Stress Builds Up

Stress: the subject of many an article. This article particularly caught my attention as the author James Clear uses such a great analogy to explain the theory of how stress accumulates and how it affects the body.  He encourages us to imagine our health and energy as  water inside a bucket. In everyday life things like sleep, food, laughter and love fill our bucket up. However, there are also forces that drain the water from our bucket. He suggests they could be things like relationship problems or other forms of stress and anxiety, as well as exercise, work and study which could be either positive or negative experiences.  Interested in finding out more? Then why not take a look at his article?
