My Background My name is Daniel M. Wood I have a background in Sales, Marketing, Psychology and Sports. With this background I have learned a lot about the human psyche and what is required of us to produce top results. About three years ago I become very interested in Time Management, since I realized that our most important resource is our time. I studied multiple philosophies and found that the best results were achieved when combining certain techniques into a system. I started teaching these techniques to my students, who also noticed a quick improvement. This lead me to create the Time Management Expert System. If you want to know more about me, and read my articles, you can visit my blog http://lookingtobusiness.com where I share advice on goal setting, personal development, and of course time management.http://lookingtobusiness.com

What is Time Management? Setting up a system to manage your time so that you can be as efficient as possible. We want to run a quick Poll, please take a minute to answer it.
Stress and the Problems it Causes The general reaction to a stressful situation, for example getting attacked is; Alarm, Resistance followed by exhaustion.
Stress and the Problems it Causes The stress hormones released into your body have the side effect that they weaken the bodies immune system, which is why when you are stressed over a long time you are more prone to become ill.
Stress and the Problems it Causes Long term stress can cause severe damage to the linings of the arteries and because of your reduced metabolism, a side-effect of the stress hormones, it can contribute the fatty blockages in the arteries that cause heart attacks and strokes.
Stress and the Problems it Causes Because of your weakened immune system you are more likely to get colds, other infections and diseases such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and even sudden death.
Stress and the Problems it Causes Stress causes you to age faster Aging has been found to be linked to our chromosomes. In our chromosomes there is something called a telomere, every time the chromosome divides (e.g. creates a new cell) the telomere grows shorter.
Stress and the Problems it Causes Fortunately the body has an enzyme we call telomerase that helps counter telomere shortening, this enzyme can in affect slow the aging process.
Stress and the Problems it Causes When we are stressed our body produces less telomerase which causes us to age faster.
Stress and the Problems it Causes Mental Dangers of Stress Stress can have severe psychological effects such as depression, anxiety and unhappiness. People who have lived through highly stressful events, such as the loss of a family member are at high risk to develop the above mentioned diseases as are those who have lived with stress for a long period of time.
