When you are hurting, believing that you can lessen the burdens you carry may feel stressful and seem unbelievable, but the part of you that wants relief knows that it is possible.
Stress has emerged as one of the most significant contributors to illnesses, failure, accidents, loss of memory, attachment difficulties, the decline in mental and physical health, and productivity. Prolonged stress affects all aspects of our lives, including when and how we die, to some degree.
Although we read about, and are told, that stress is a modern-day killer, we do little to adjust our lifestyles or heal our wounds. Sometimes after we receive a diagnosis, we still will not make lifestyle changes. How much pain does it take to agree that, for the most part, your life is in your hands?
Does this describe you?
- You are preoccupied and emotionally 'hot' tempered or avoidant.
- You do not sleep and eat poorly.
- Your mind races constantly, you are forgetful and clumsy.
- You catch colds easily, feel sluggish, and have digestive problems.
- You lived stressed as a child and have many traumas.
- Everything stresses you, even small things. You are a complainer.
- You feel alone, isolated, and irritated more than you would like.
Stress is everything and anything.
You can find your peace without the side effects of medications.
Many people do not realize the level of stress they hold in. Habits and behaviors protect you from feeling the hurt of stress and avoiding aspects of your life that are painful for any reason.
Do you use alcohol, drugs, shopping, gaming, or the phone to quickly distract and self-protect from the pains you feel and do not want to feel? Of course, we want to avoid pain, yet the numbing effect of our lifestyle choices guarantees that we will suffer the consequences of being stressed and also the effects of the stress we seek to avoid and certainly don't want.
We suffer needlessly.
The imbalance of the stress experience can lead to unlimited physical problems, from aches and pains to frequent colds to cancer, and emotional and cognitive problems, from being scattered to raging thoughts to anxiety and depression. Your relationship to yourself and others will be affected,
There are literally 1000's of stress symptoms, including being stressed about being stressed.
Take a moment a rate your stress from 1- 10. (10 is a very high rating). If you are normally between the numbers of five and eight, any experience that you react to will take your breath away and accumulate.
What symptoms do you have? You may not realize the symptoms and hurts you have are related to stress, how you are thinking, your habits and behaviors.
You have choices and options in which to reset your life.
The experience of being stressed is very personal. What you believe about life challenges or inconveniences and how you responded to the events -- your beliefs, inner resources, and external support system, will determine how well you cope with life shocks when they occur in the future. It varying from situation to situation.
If you have struggled with commitment in relationships, you may have experienced early life separation. If you have a history of neglect and abuse, you may feel sensitive to, or worry about, not having enough or benign threat. If you have depression, you have noticed that you are depressed like another family member.
We are conditioned by family and culture on what is considered to be stress and how to behave if we are to stress at all. Example: Mom is afraid of storms; children can learn to become afraid of storms.
All Symptoms of Stress Are Related!
Discomfort, pain or changes that affect health, mind and emotions, habits and behaviors, career and lifestyle that influences your well-being.
Symptoms vary from person to person and are dependent on many factors -- mental conditioning, personal resources, culture, inherited family stresses, lifestyle demands, and the health of your mind/body.
Research at Stanford reports that if we believe that stress is negative, it does affect the heart and immunity -- more so than if we allow the emotions and then take the appropriate actions to deal with them.
People report the same amount of stressors, but the people who had more casual beliefs that the stress will pass, that they can take an action, or that challenge is a part of life, had reduced heart damage and other damaging influences to the body.
Dramatic and unwanted shifts in life can appear suddenly and can be confusing because we want life to always be going well. Current stressors can awaken old feelings and patterns and you feel added psychological, physical and environmental stress in your life all over again.
Not to be ignored, generational stress and trauma can surface during critical milestones, transitions, ages or events, and have a profound effect on your life whether you want to realize the connection or not. Some stressors are repeat burdens of the family ancestry.
