STRESS RELIEVING TIPS FOR MODERN DAY WOMEN/MEN.

DO YOU MAKE LISTS ?

THIS IS ON MY TO DO LIST TODAY…..Must shave legs..

The importance of making lists in today’s hectic lifestyles can not be underestimated.

Life is stressful, but only if you let it be.

You are in control of the stress levels in your body. 

One thing I have learned over the years is that your body is not designed to cope with repeated and prolonged stress. 

You will eventually ‘burn out’

Maybe not today or tomorrow, but it is guaranteed, that if you let stress take over, you will burn out. No matter how important you are, no matter how much money you have, or how many letters you have before, or after your name, the prolonged effect of cortisol on your body will cause serious health problems eventually.

When we experience stress on a daily basis, our bodies suffer. 

Even if we are not aware of it.

Our bodies judge a situation (unconsciously) and decides whether or not it’s stressful.

This is based on what we see, hear and also in memories we have stored from previous situations we have encountered that are similar. 

If our unconscious mind decides this is a stressful situation it sets off a chain reaction in our bodies.

The hypothalamus is the part of the brain that is in charge of stress response. This is where the fight or flight pathway of short term stress is produced. 

Long term stress effects are produced by the adrenal system.

The adrenal system releases stress hormones called cortisol which suppressed the immune system.

IMAGINE THIS HAPPENING DAILY/MONTHLY/YEARLY ?

TAKE TIME FOR YOURSELF TODAY, BECAUSE TOMORROW IS NEVER PROMISED

WE ALL NEED TO SLOW DOWN…

MAKE A LIST OF THINGS YOU WANT TO ACHEIVE TODAY….

BREAK THAT LIST DOWN INTO BITE SIZE PIECES,

START OFF BY JUST DOING ONE THING ON THE LIST

BE REALISTIC WITH YOUR GOALS, YOU AREN’T GOING TO WRITE THAT BOOK, OR BUILD THAT BUSINESS IN ONE DAY… EVERYTHING TAKES TIME.

WE SEEM TO RUSH EVERYTHING THESE DAYS, EVERYBODY IS IN A HURRY, AND WHEN YOU ARE IN A HURRY YOU MISS THE BEAUTY SURROUNDING YOU.

DON’T BE IN SUCH A HURRY, SLOW DOWN, GIVE YOURSELF PERMISSION TO SELF CARE, IF YOU DON’T LOVE YOURSELF, WHO ELSE CAN?

AND WE ALL GET TO THAT FINAL DESTINATION ONE DAY…

LIFE IS ABOUT WHO’S LIVES YOU HAVE TOUCHED ALONG THE WAY.

HOW SOCIETY HAS BENEFITED FROM YOU BEING IN EXISTENCE.

WE ARE ALL HERE FOR A REASON… WHAT IS YOURS ?
