Top Five Ways to Reduce Your Stress
Original Blog Posted - April 10, 2019
April is Stress Awareness Month (not that we need a reminder). Life can become overwhelming at times. We all feel the pressures from negative sources in our society. They are persistently vying for our attention, our emotion, our outrage and our money. We, however, make the choice to listen or to ignore these messages.
Our brain is an amazing processor of information. It takes audio, visual and sensational (touch) data, figures out what it means to us and then transmits instructions to our body. Stress can induce our “fight or flight” reaction. We grow tense. Our adrenalin spikes as does our heart rate. This is perfect if you’re running from a charging bull. Staying stressed out for long periods, however, can do serious damage to your body.
