Stress Relief in 30 Seconds!
Famous Last Words: “I’m just stressed”
Do you minimize the impact of stress? Suffer through it until your next vacation? Compete with your co-workers about who is most stressed?
We may take it lightly, but stress is no laughing matter. In the body, stress increases inflammation, which causes the body to make more cortisol and taxes the adrenal glands; potentially leading to blood sugar dysregulation, insomnia, stubborn weight, digestive issues, joint pain, and immune dysregulation (can suppress or fire up-auto-immune). Stress has been shown to worsen or trigger diabetes; accelerate aging and decrease sexual desire.
In the workplace, stress makes us irritable, forgetful, impatient, and prone to errors. It affects productivity, employee turnover, health care costs, frequency of errors and patient satisfaction.
In any moment, stress is intangible and non-descript. Unlike a headache or an allergy attack, we can’t directly define the ailment of stress or take a pill for it. Until we end up with resulting symptoms that cripple us, we ignore it. Even as we feel it building, we make excuses (such as not enough time or money), to not treat or even acknowledge it.
But, we can relieve stress with strategies that take no time or money!
The innate wisdom of your body can be used for self-care and preservation.
The natural power of play can ease your way through life.
And, you can easily let go when you know what’s driving your reactions.
