Stress is a constant factor in our modern life. With increasing demands at work, social and personal challenges, extensive to do lists, pressures and time constraints, we have pushed our body unwillingly over the tipping point of self-regulation.

In other words our modern non-stop lifestyle makes us sick. 

Like a thief in the night, stress robs you from your health and wellbeing.

The good news is that health is in your hands. You yourself can make the difference and help yourself and others to live fully with a healthy stress-ease balance.

The first step towards that balance is knowledge… knowing the basics of what chronic stress is as stress itself is not the problem but when it becomes a constant in your life it will.

Chronic stress on a biological level is when your autonomic nervous system is in a constant fight and flight mode and your relaxation and regeneration mode in other words your healing mechanism is switched off….

To give health a chance the solution is very logical start implementing behaviour that activates that relaxation response and thus allow your body to the time to heal.

Yep in theory it’s that simple and you are the key.

How do you activate that relaxation response? Well as you are unique that question is a really difficult one to answer.

But think about what your body needs to really relax, recuperate and regenerate. Sometimes it might be that it is just doing nothing and by not feeling guilty about it.

Think and analyse all those things you say you should do but don’t when it comes to health promoting behaviour.

What upsets you but are you still doing to please others? What’s your mindset like? Work, we all have to do and changing jobs isn’t always an option but how can you improve your current job situation is it causing you stress? Over what aspect of your social or personal life or work don’t you have control? How can you gain more control over that situation?

All of these questions are important to look at if stress has gotten under your skin. Yes it takes time … and yes you might need some help with it. Don’t and… well I think you get the picture.

But before you begin on an introspective journey I really recommend that you start to practice a breathing exercise. It is scientifically proven that  practicing breathing exercises 3 times a day contributes to health and a feeling of wellbeing.

On you can download your free copy of ‘Reaset: The return of Ease’ an eBook with practical information on how the breathe your stress away.
