Stress Relief

Writing a Better Life

As part of my Stress Relief Techniques class, I teach the importance of gratitude.  It's enormously healing, simply because we're naturally such anxious creatures.  We're all experts at being stressed and anxious because our earliest ancestors, who were much more vulnerable than we, had to be on the lookout incessantly for things that could be detrimental to their continued well-being.  That tendency has been passed down to us through the generations, and we're now quite good at it.

Stress Eating

Have you ever noticed that when you’re feeling the most stressed, often you want to eat more?  Worse, you crave things that you know aren’t healthy for you, like candy bars, cookies, soda or coffee.  You know that, if you indulge, not only won’t you feel better, but it will likely make you feel worse.  Still, though, you have a strong desire to do it.
The reason this happens is, stress is a result of your subconscious mind thinking that whatever has triggered the stress is something much worse.

Happiness is Healthy for You!

We’ve all heard the old adage, “Laughter is the best medicine.”  But have you ever stopped to consider why that might be?

Physically you’re healthier when you’re happier because your body is releasing neurotransmitters and hormones like endorphins, serotonin, dopamine and oxytocin. 
Endorphins relieve physical pain.  Serotonin stimulates feelings of happiness and makes you more social.  Dopamine causes you to feel better about yourself, especially when you’re working toward achieving a goal.

We Are Encouraged to be Stressed

In a recentblog post, I addressed the fact that, as insane as it sounds, stress is actually attractive to us on a subconscious level.  Now that you’re aware of that fact, it’s also important to become aware, on a conscious level, of the fact that we are encouraged to be stressed.
We've all heard the expression, "No pain, no gain."   Have you ever stopped and thought about what that means?  In order to acquire anything you want, you will have to hurt for it.

Surprising News About Stress

We have all experienced stress.  We know we don't like the way it feels.  We know we wish whatever triggered it would go away or hadn't happened in the first place.  Stress is just plain yucky, right?
Well, here's something that might surprise you:  you are actually attracted to stress.  It sounds insane, doesn't it?  But it's true. 
When humans first showed up on the planet, we had nothing: no immunity, no weapons, no natural armor.
