some things we know about stress
it alters our existent equilibrium
it is the cause of 80-95% of all doctors visits
it is factor in 5/6 leading causes of death
is the leading cause of life style diseases
increasing immunity to stress is a prerequisite for joy
it is physiologically measurable
it is the enemy of emotional freedom, balance and soulful living
the stress response has 4 stages:
the trigger - fight, flight or freeze, intensification or recovery, adaptation or maladaptation and finally exhaustion and disease with chronic exhaustion
it exists everywhere as the external environment
if we let it, it will alter our internal environment, destroying our existent equilibrium, neurologically and chemically, establishing obstacles to the flow of life and the full expression of our souls intention for us.
it is the cause of maladaptive subconscious programs before age 8 and the trigger of these automatic programs later in life
stress is typically related to a preoccupation with the past or the future, something abstract.…but rarely the present - hence the importance of mindfulness and acceptance
stress comes in many forms - emotional, chemical, physical and spiritual - but affects the body the same way. it distorts our existent equilibrium by changing our internal neuro-biochemical balance thus preventing change from taking place and serving as a precursor to disease
stress is the precursor to all physical and/or emotional dis-ease we experience, including heart disease, asthma, obesity, diabetes, anxiety, headaches, depression, anxiety, gastrointestinal problems, alzheimer’s, accelerated ageing and premature death
there are 2 comprehensive ways of increasing immunity to stress.
1 is a general sandbagging approach via a balanced wellness program and the other is changing maladaptive programs on your hard drive. i share them both at my workshops and also during my 1 on 1 coaching.
these 2 ideas can be shared in a 2 hour ‘mastering stress’ workshop, on site, for your company
