"How do you really feel?"
75%-90% of today's doctor visits are reported to be related to stress-related complaints. Chronic stress (living in a constant stress-related, anxious, worry-lead state) can sometimes be subtle. It can also be highly present when we ignore daily stressors. Either way, our physical, mental and emotional health is affected.
Here's the thing:
Stress is constant and continual. Stress is always present, but how we respond to it matters. It matters for our entire mental, emotional, AND physical health.
Our health is complex and connected and our minds and bodies cannot heal in a stressed state.
When we want to feel better, here are some things to consider:
* nutrients, vitamin, mineral deficiencies?
* effort that goes in to healing self?
* compartmentalizing what we think the "problem" is?
* sleep deficiency related to stress?
* clean foods?
* environmental challenges (relationships, allergies, cold weather vs. warm weather)?
* workplace stress/unhappiness?
* connected to self (self-care)?
* loud inner critic?
* sugar, caffeine, alcohol intake?
* sabotaging and limited beliefs?
We are NOT broken just because we experience stress. We have to choose to heal. Chose a starting point. Identify where you think the imbalance is. Take control of JUST one issue to start. Make a plan. Research. Ask for medical guidance. ACTION is how we begin to balance our lives and prioritize our health.
