STRESSSSSSS

Getting out of your own way

Stress that never switches is one of the most all-pervasive health disrupters there is right now. Constant stress switches the body out of a self-healing state, over time degrading health along with our mental and emotional wellbeing.

 

Knowing how to work with the body and not against it, helps you tolerate stress an  rest-digest-repair-restore, and into flight-freeze-flee-freakout. d busy-ness, while maintaining health and a sense of wellbeing. Helping you navigate stressful times. 

Our nervous system is made up of two parts -

1. The Parasympathic Nervous System (PSNS) that heals, repairs, restores and runs all of the systems that operate outside of our conscious control.

2. The Sympathetic Nervous Systems (SNS) that runs our fight-flight-flee-freeze stress mobilisation program.

To run the SNS the PSNS switches down, and for the PSNS to turn back on, the SNS needs to power down.

When we are constantly stressed, the body stays in SNS dominance, and the restorative, repairing, calming and regenerative aspect of us is reduced. Over time this leads to a breakdown in health, and mental and emotional wellbeing.

The adrenaline-fueled ‘fight or flight’ system is triggered by any type of stress, whether emotional or physical. Whereas your parasympathetic nervous system is your ‘rest and digest’ system that controls relaxation, comfort and rest.

 

If your body is constantly stressed it is said to be in a ‘Sympathetic Dominant’ state. This state can lead to some of the following mental, emotional and physical challenges:

  • Chronic digestive issues such as bloating, stomach pain, diarrhoea, constipation, not digesting food properly, etc.

  • Feeling wired but tired

  • Experiencing anxiety or panic attacks

  • Unable to mentally slow down

  • Feeling constantly ‘rushed’

  • Feeling like you have to constantly be doing something

  • Dilated pupils

  • Insomnia, disrupted sleep, restless legs

  • Racing heart, palpitations, shortness of breath

  • Lowered immunity, frequent infections

  • Increased blood pressure and blood sugar

  • Increased sweating

  • Shoulder and neck muscle tightness

  • Constant fatigue

  • Vulnerability to chronic illnesses

  • Overwhelm

  • Brain Fog

  • Depression, Anxiety, OCD
