Taking Control Of Stress And Anxiety

Stress and anxiety are buzzwords today.  Knowing the difference between them can help us to eradicate anxiety by taking steps with the physical and mindset dimensions.

Stress is the body’s way of responding to any kind of demand or threat. When you sense danger—whether it’s real or imagined—the body’s defenses kick into high gear in a rapid, automatic process known as the “fight-or-flight” reaction or the “stress response”. 

This ability of the body can be good–it can help us get out of trouble. But if we stay in this state, we move into anxiety and we set ourselves up for a multitude of physical and emotional challenges such as:

  1. Depression and anxiety
  2. Pain of any kind
  3. Sleep problems
  4. Autoimmune diseases
  5. Digestive problems
  6. Skin conditions, such as eczema
  7. Heart disease
  8. Weight problems
  9. Reproductive issues
  10. Thinking and memory problems

So what can we do to quiet the amygdala and tell our bodies to stop sending the cortisol and adrenaline when we don’t need it?

This article gives several ideas. One of the most helpful things for me has been EFT which I discuss here. I like tapping because I know it is removing blocks in my meridians that have been caused by stressful things. Other ideas from the article are to have a face-to-face conversation with someone; take a walk; eat something healthy…

Choose one thing to do TODAY. Even if you think you are not in stress mode, you probably are. And it will show up again later–tomorrow, next week, next month–when an experience happens that triggers the fight or flight response.

Combining these physical ways to combat stress with the mindset techniques I teach on this website and in my coaching can eradicate anxiety from your life!

It matters!
