Alternatives for Stress
We live in stressful times. The rich, middle class, and poor alike are all carrying the stress and emotion of their day-to-day lives in their bodies. For some it’s the stress of being the CEO of a Fortune 500 company and for others it’s the stress of making ends meet.

That being said there are instances when we push too hard and the soreness is turned from a good sore to a bad one. There’s a difference between your muscles being sore from a good workout and your knee hurting from injury.
