"When you experience prolonged periods of mental and emotional stress, you become drained of Qi energy to be able to cope," said Master Oh.
"The more stress you experience, the more your energy system becomes blocked and Qi energy cannot circulate. This creates a very high vibration such as anxiety and fear which drains your energy system. Over time, this lack of energy flow creates chronic pain and fatigue in the body which is essentially burnout."
With latest figures showing 80% of British people struggle with a modern-day burnout at some stage of their life - and 40% feel stressed every day - Master Oh offers his five top tips to deal with stress.
Master Oh's advice is:
In order to live, we need three vital ingredients: mind, body and spirit. The state of our mind and body are always changing but we can rely on our spirit which always stays the same. If you support your spirit by practising a positive, happy and loving mind, no matter the physical situation, this can have a significant impact on the speed and effectiveness of your healing process.
A positive mind enables your energy system to remain open and allow Qi to flow freely. This, in turn, supports your system and enables you to better deal with stress.
Use moments alone to reflect on what you need to change in your life added Master Oh.
These may be deep patterns or lifestyle choices which are unsustainable. Change can seem daunting in the beginning, but you need to put your health first, he added.
