RELIEF FROM HARMFUL STRESS
We all feel stress at times. Stress occurs when you are faced with a challenging situation and your body activates certain resources, releasing chemicals into your blood, to help you. These chemicals can trigger a faster heart rate, alertness, and muscles fully prepared for action. These responses can be very beneficial for a short time if you’re in genuine danger. A little bit of stress can also be good in short term situations like public speaking, sports, or the performing arts where you can use the energy and alertness to improve your performance. But the stress response can work against you if sparked by needless worry or anxiety over a longer period of time with no direct physical or emotional outlet to release it. While short term stress can have beneficial effects, long term chronic stress can be very harmful.
Common signs of harmful stress are: high blood pressure, rapid breathing, slowed digestive system, increased heart rate, weakened immune system, tense muscles, sleeplessness. As you can see, these are things that you wouldn’t want to accept as part of your normal physical state. But there is a way to change this.
Our stress reduction sessions will help you on many fronts. Stress usually develops as a result of more than one factor, so we'll uncover these factors and re-wire your mind's responses to them. During the sessions, you can take time for yourself and re-discover what is truly important to you. You'll realize that your emotional state does not need to be subject to the random influence of events, circumstances, and other people. By focusing on what you want and letting go of other distractions, you will feel better and be able to achieve more than you thought possible. And you'll enjoy the adventure.
