Health: It's not just about the absence of disease; it's about thriving in body, mind, and spirit. Yet, our society is facing a health crisis, with rising rates of obesity and stress-related illnesses. According to recent studies, the obesity epidemic is now the second leading cause of cancer, trailing only behind smoking. If current trends continue, obesity and poor wellness levels will soon surpass smoking as the primary cause of cancer, signaling a dire need for action.


Stress and Relax sign

Stress: We're all familiar with stress—it's that constant feeling of pressure and tension that weighs us down physically and mentally. But did you know that chronic stress is a major contributor to a wide range of health problems, from heart disease to mental health issues? In fact, studies have shown that prolonged stress can increase the risk of developing conditions like anxiety and depression, highlighting the urgent need to address our stress levels.


The link between health, wellness, and stress


Our health and wellness levels are intricately linked to our stress levels. Poor lifestyle choices and ongoing stress can take a toll on our bodies and minds, leading to a host of health problems. From Type II Diabetes to cardiovascular issues, the consequences of neglecting our health are dire. Moreover, the impact of stress extends beyond physical health—it can affect our decision-making abilities, relationships, and overall quality of life.


Taking personal responsibility


It's time to break free from societal norms and take personal responsibility for our health and wellness. No amount of medication can replace the importance of preventive care and healthy lifestyle choices. We must shift our focus from treating the symptoms of illness to preventing disease altogether.


Introducing the Dying To Live course:


To help individuals take control of their health and wellness, CRG has developed a groundbreaking eCourse called Dying To Live. This interactive program takes participants through a comprehensive assessment of their stress levels across five critical areas:
