In my book Taming Life – Happiness Is Not a Myth, I talk in depth about stress and the effects it has on our body and mind, otherwise known as “The Body Mind”.

If you drink a glass of water it can keep you alive. We need water, we can’t live without it. As much as water can give you life, though, it can kill you if it’s badly accompanied, for example, if you poison the water, you will die. It’s still water, but it’ll kill you.
Water can feel good. On a hot summer day a cold glass of water will feel extremely good, but if the water is boiling, it’ll hurt you, it’ll burn your lips, mouth, throat and esophagus, but it’s still water. You can’t live without it. Continue reading
