Really, don’t just settle for Stress management… Heal stress altogether!
There’s more at stake than just a headache if you are stressing out. Stress is the number one cause of illness and disease. It lowers your immune system, fatigues your adrenals and dumbs you down. It results in angry, rocky relationships and pretty much affects every area of your life, in one way or another.
After hitting a low point from stress years ago, I was left with having to make some hard decisions. I needed to figure out how to handle my emotions better or they were going to take me down.
I was told I needed to learn to manage my stress load. To figure out a way to cope with it.
My health had become very poor and I struggled with my relationships and I felt like every day was a big fight to be won or lost depending on how I played everything out. I would plan strategically ahead, to avoid future danger.
I was in Self Protect Mode
But this mode only made me more scared, resulting in more stress and the vicious cycle of more actual danger to my health.
I couldn’t take it any longer. Everything and everyone seemed to be something I needed to protect myself from. I was the only one who would take care of and protect ME.
But I wasn’t handling that job very well.
Life seemed so hard and was not easy to turn around. If you are in protect mode, every cell in your body reacts in the same way. Nutrients don’t absorb easily, as all those systems are more closed off, barely functioning in maintenance mode.
Think about it…
If you are in self-protector in Fight or Flight, everything goes into survival mode. We are built to fight or run in that mode. All other functions like eating or sleeping are put on the back burner.
The hardest thing can be changed.
When you are in that high-stress state it is so incredibly hard to stop that cycle. Many people will say meditate or just relax your mind.
I had people suggest over and over to just start thinking positive thoughts? Repeat lot’s of affirmations.
I’m here to tell you when you are suffering from anxiety and fear as well as a number of other highly charged emotions, that being positive is nearly impossible.
I needed help… Something to get me out of my own head.
I knew if I didn’t change how I looked at things and literally felt about them, it could harm my life permanently. It wasn’t just about changing how I responded. I know that the management of feelings is popular right now but there is a difference.
Changing how you respond means you have more control of yourself, which is great.
Changing how you “feel” or see things is more about your perception.
If you are changing your perception and seeing things more positive, that means your emotions are totally different at that point. You are looking at the glass half full, instead of half empty. You are seeing your future as more promising, instead of with fear of the worst.
This all boils down to a reduction of your stress and an increase in your overall happiness, health, and wellbeing.
I found several methods over the years that literally saved my life and I am so grateful for these tools, that God so generously offered me. The timing was perfect and when I most needed it. It was also most likely the best time to receive and use that information.
God’s Timing is Always Perfect.
