In any unwanted situation, people say if...then they will do differently. I am Not sure, only when you master your mind by mastering Greed, Anger, and Ignorance. You have unconditioned love. If you lack this, the more you do, the more you may make other pain or stress.
Do you know: when you are sleeping, your brain still works to review, correct, and create the changes side the brain and body, genes that we do not know. But we know how brain/ mind works by observing the pattern of sleeping with changing the pressure from the environment: EEG, Slow-wave sleep, REM sleep. We know that some chronic patients have some things strange with their genes, does its changes first or state of mind, environment create it then diseases are the perceivable symptoms.
Effects of stress on mind, body, world. In mind, the brain we called mental problems, insomnia, headache, suicide problems, social problems.
Effects of stress on the stomach, intestine we called the stomach problems, pain, severe pain, gastrointestinal problems; on heart, vein, we call cardiovascular diseases.
Stress on the school: school problems
Stress on the world we called human problems, which may lead to World War.
Stress start from the state of mind It is not cold, virus, flu kills American, but the stressed mind. January is the most stressed month because of tired working, pressure from work, pressure from the deadline of the credit card, mainly from Stressed, Discontented, Hysterical MIND.
Check these symptoms to know you are under stress or not, only by SMART WATCH.
If yes, only medication, pain reliever, opioids are useless; punishment is useless, prison is not enough. We need to think of the alternative technique to calm the mind, soothe the pain and find inner peace for all: meditation, and lifelong learning.
Use the smartwatch to record the changing of the body to know the changing of the state of mind, emotion: hatred, anger, stress, depression, and love.

They live in stress, eat in fear, sleep in anxiety, playing in the boring safe side, wear luxury clothes in discontentment, study with pressure, and sexing with contempt, and hysterically getting the life-saving vaccination. They never find the real joy, happiness.Stress chemical: Adrenalin, noradrenalin, and cortisone.

Check it can be easy by doing on animals.
Check it can be easy by observing the gen, mind, and health of the defect men: Nick Vujik, Hellen Keller, President Franklin Rosevelt, and millions of other people.
We know too little about our brain- the king of the body and its state.
Stress season of US is highest in January: with the soaring of death, and cardiovascular stroke. Maybe they are too stress because enjoying time passed, boring stressful work begin and stressful paying credit cards for the amount that overspend before Holiday, New Year'Eve, and black Fridays. School also make American stress. The number of death reduced substantially during summer vacation, and the number of injury for kids is increased, maybe the kids play more freely than other time.
One thing to check about the effect of schooling in society: look at the diagram of death rate between America and Europe with Australia and New Zealand. The pattern is so obviously opposite according to the different school schedule and summer vacation.
UNFORTUNATELY, THE LEVEL OF STRESS IN THE MIND IS UNLIMITED, BUT THE PREPARE OF THE PHYSICAL BODY IS LIMITED.When the blood pressure high, glucose high, the organ may send the feedback signal for the brain to stop secreting the hormone, and self-regulation mechanism activated. The brain still wants to raise the preparation of the body to the higher level to prepare for fight and flight. The brain may see other organs as the preventer or enemy. The immune system starts to attack its own organs: the autoimmune diseases.
– Only the beta cell pancreas be destroyed by the immune system
– other strange, could not understand the mechanism of the autoimmune system: why it only attack ignorantly or intelligently attack one kind of cell, and let the nearby cell un-touch.
Luckily, Meditation can help calm your mind, but the act of kindness, goodness, selfless action bring peace for all.
At home, you can sit cross legs on flat, on a small cushion under the bottom to avoid falling backward or sitting on the coach; where you can have enough quiet and uninterrupted time. Practice daily five to ten minutes in quiet place. Straighten your body like a feeling of direct force pulls from the head to make upright; then let the body relax in a straight position. Practice some of these exercises of observing. There are people practice meditation for the first time, a lot of thoughts jump out and disappear. It is normal because this is the normal function of the mind. Do not worry, just identifying and naming the thoughts of past, future, positive, negative, nonsense, selfish. After recognizing and naming, thought cannot be self-sustaining, thoughts only sustain when we let ourselves breed and chase the thoughts. Just recognize and name the thoughts then come back to the observing. Practice each of these exercises from five to ten minutes. Whenever you want to stay focus, you can practice the observing one of the following exercise.
Exercise one: Observe the relaxation of whole the body.
Stop the thinking process; observing the comfort, relaxation, and lightness of the body. Just breathing in and breathing out with the observing. Practice for at least three to five minutes.
Exercise two: Observe the breath.
Observe the breath in and out, inhalation and exhalation through the noses. Just recognize and observe the breath, do not try to control or adjust the breath. Observing, watching the breath, sensing the path of the breath. Feel the moving of the chest and abdomen when taking the breath. Practice for at least three to five minutes.
Exercise three: Count the breath during meditating
With the position of sitting for meditation, breathe in count one, breathe out count one; next breath, breathe in count two, breathe out count two. Then breathe in count three, breathe out count three. Do count less than five and do not count more than ten. When count to ten, we can count back from one. Practice for at least three to five minutes.
Exercise four: observe the lower abdomen
Observe the lower abdomen when breathing. Breathe in with the observation of moving of lower abdomen and exhale the observation of moving lower abdomen. Watching the rising and falling of the lower abdomen. Practice for at least three to five minutes.
Exercise five: Observe the lower body in meditating
Observe the lower body when breathing. From the chest down, observe and sense the sensations of the hands, feet, and abdomen. Just observe the parts of the body; just realize the sensation of that lower part. Observe them as empty space cavity moving with the breath. We can feel joy with a sense of lightness and empty. Practice for at least three to five minutes.
If when you observe the body, thoughts appear, this is the normal function of the mind. Just realize the thoughts, do not follow thoughts. Come back to observe the breath. There are people first-time practice meditation, a lot of thinking jump out because of normal function of mind, do not worry, just identify and name the thought like past, future, positive, negative, nonsense, selfish. After naming, thinking cannot be self-sustaining. Just recognize and name the thoughts, then come back to observe the body and the breath. This is the characteristic of mind. Understanding the mind, we can control the power of the mind.

Exercise six: identify the thoughts that appear from the top of the head
It seems like there is a small brain at the top of the head to observe the thoughts appear in the head during meditating. Sitting in meditating position, just observe the thought appear in the head. Identifying and naming the thoughts. Just identify, do not follow thoughts. Thoughts will appear and disappear constantly and out of our control.

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. Aristotle
“Things that I felt absolutely sure of but a few years ago, I do not believe now. This thought makes me see more clearly how foolish it would be to expect all men to agree with me.” Jim Rohn
“It doesn't matter which side of the fence you get off on sometimes. What matters most is getting off.” Jim Rohn
