Golf is like no other than in Jupiter, Florida. The area is home to just 60,000 people, but without going more than 10 miles up and down the coast you can get to the home of the world’s top golfers Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka, Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus and many others reside here. Officially, 35 PGA Tour pros live there, but between rentals and second, third, or fourth homes, the true number is certainly higher.
Too much stress can wreak havoc on your mind and body. One of the goals in life is learning to cope with stress through relaxation. Failing to prepare for stress is as unacceptable as forgetting to bring your clubs to the course! The Anxiety and Depression Association of America encourage physical activity as vital for maintaining mental fitness and reducing stress. Stress is thought to be an important contributor to many health problems. Early stress scientists found that regardless of the environmental stressor, a generalized physiological response was activated. The “fight or flight” stress response causes a physiological reaction. The physical problems related to chronic stress include the lowering of the immune response, chronic muscle tension, and increased blood pressure. These problems can eventually lead to serious life-threatening illnesses such as heart attacks, kidney disease, and cancer.
