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

management of stress is a prerequisite for joy

it is physiologically measurable and clearly something we struggle to manage

it is the kryptonite, 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

to adapt to stress, to upgrade, it is our internal environment that we need to change

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

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
