Yogic quote: Satyanandaji on stress and de-stress

In his Meditations from the Tantras, he explains how the limbic system is involved with the flight-fright syndrome and stress glands. Yet, another "part of the limbic system called the septal region acts in the opposite direction. It reduces our emotional responses; it releases tension and creates relaxataion of the whole body and mind. By meditation we can make the septal part of the limbic system operate for the predominant part or even all of our life. Under these conditions we have a life of relaxation, not laxiness, enjoy life more, do our work more efficiently and a happy life, one must change."
