‘We live longer than our forefathers, but we suffer more from a thousand artificial anxieties and cares. They fatigued only the muscles, we exhaust the finer strength of the nerves.’ ~Edward George Bulwer-Lytton
We need to deal with stress in a different way but where is the off button? We need to change our ‘thinking’ about stress. Most of our thinking we do above our shoulders, like behind our eyes and in our head. What if were to change where we think to our hearts. Our hearts are known as our second brain. It is our emotional brain. If we think through the heart we consider empathy, love, understanding and caring through stressful situations we can no longer feel anger or whatever ‘stress‘ brings to mind.
The ‘fight or flight’ response is an inherent trait in humans. Hormonal changes occur and Oxytocin is released into the body. This hormone is known as the “Cuddle’ chemical. We all need a cuddle now and then! Research has shown that this hormone contributes to relaxation, trust and psychological stability. It is actually good for our body in small doses as it strengthens our heart and immune system.
Stress can be related to an uncomfortable situation or lifestyle. Our jobs, home life, bills or just a few, the list goes on. The symptoms of stress can be from mild to severe, this can range from shortness of breath sweating and your heart pounding. Stress can be addictive and small things can trigger it off like traffic jams, late for an appointment, it can pop its ugly head up at any time! Research by Harvard University states that stress breaks down our immune system and leads to high blood pressure and heart disease.
