Today is National Stress Awareness Day. It’s ironic but most of us function daily with high stress and are not even aware of it. I like to describe stress as the feeling of having so much to do and not enough time to get it done. It feels like the weight of the world is on our shoulders. Stress affects every cell in our body. Stress makes everything worse inside of us physically and emotionally.
Stress reduction starts with awareness. Once you can identify your stressors you can formulate a plan. A major part of the plan is to decide what is in and what is out of your control. However, this may not be so easy if you are dealing with an unhealthy emotionally self. I believe buried feelings never die and when we have unresolved negative emotions (this makes our emotional self unhealthy), all of these unresolved emotions inside of our body automatically raises our stress level. I have met very few people in my practice who do not have buried negative emotions. Taking a little time, getting temporarily uncomfortable, confronting and resolving these buried feelings will automatically lower your stress and even eliminate stress.
Once these toxins are resolved, the present stress may not seem so intense and may be easier to resolve and take less time to resolve. Also, letting go of the things that are out of your control may be easier as well.#NationalStressAwarenessDay
