Having too much stress in your life, will make you anxious, irritable and unproductive. It will affect your relationship with yourself, your performance at work, your long term physical and emotional health and your quality of your life.
There are many ways that will enable you to overcome stress quickly and easily, leaving you physically more relaxed, mentally calmer, altogether more confident and most importantly, free of stress. Ultimately you will start living the life you desire.
There are massage therapists who specialise in de-stressing your body. Body workouts can reduce your stress by releasing endorphins to counteract the effects, and coaching to reduce the amount of stress by changing your reaction to it.
Why is it that all we seem to hear about these days is stress? Why does it seem to pervade everything we do? Well the simple answer is that as a result of ever-increasing expectations and competition more and more people are spending increasing amounts of time utilising their body's natural stress response.
This instinctive response releases stress hormones directly into the bloodstream. These hormones cause instant mental, emotional and physiological changes - extra awareness, endurance and strength. So if we were in a dangerous situation, this would help us to survive.
Because stress hormones get us fired-up, rather like sprinters crouched and waiting for the starting-gun, and because most stressed people don't get the release of the race itself, the stress hormones just keep on working.
As a result, we permanently have to endure these feelings of immediate danger and physiological, mental and emotional readiness, never able to relax and never able to feel at ease. Does this sound familiar?
Stress has a dramatic impact on the quality of our lives. It can cause a wide range of emotional problems including issues with anger, anxiety, addiction, panic and obsessive thoughts. It can also affect our physiology such that we suffer from insomnia and the inability of our immune system to work effectively.
Perhaps your stress is caused by going through or the aftermath of divorce or a life trauma. Stress can also be caused by health worries - real or perceived, by financial worries, through a whole raft of worries, through being alone or never being alone.
Do you feel overwhelmed by having too many things to do? Have you noticed that you wake up early or in the middle of the night and can't get back to sleep because your mind is racing? Have you been feeling more irritable about minor things at work or at home? If so, it sounds like there's too much stress in your life.
You are not alone. But why not give it up? Why not reclaim your life and start living the life you deserve to enable you to overcome your stress rapidly, leaving you physically more relaxed, mentally calmer and much more confident.
One of the tools you will learn to adopt through coaching is to stop getting caught in the avalanche of information - much of it negative - that assaults you throughout the day and adds to your worries and therefore the stress levels. Go on a news fast for a day, or a week. Moderate your TV and Internet time.
Take a walk, notice the flora and fauna around you. Take the time to stop and smell the roses.
Have a massage to release the tensions in your body, this will help you de-stress.
