Prevention and Stress
When we talk about stress it is important to differentiate between normal, healthy amounts of stress and chronic stress. When we experience normal amounts of stress, it helps us think quickly and enhances our experience of accomplishment and pleasure. Only when stress occurs over longer periods of time without adequate time for regeneration, should we become concerned. This kind of stress is called chronic stress and has major effects for our physical and mental health.
Stress puts the body in a state that is comparable to that of a professional athlete during a competition. Our heart rate increases, we start sweating, our thoughts are focused on a singular challenge and we experience a strong urge to either run away or combat what or whoever is challenging us. This “fight or flight” response stems from an earlier developmental state where our reaction to external stressors was often the difference between death and survival. Unfortunately, our brain responds in the same ways to today’s stressors, that usually don’t pose immediate danger to our lives.
Over time this state can manifest in increased feelings of tension, helplessness and an increased likelihood of developing physical issues such as coronary disease, sleep abnormalities and several mental health disorders, such as burnout, depression and anxiety issues.
What can we do to tell our brains to relax and stop this overwhelming state of survival?
Active and passive relaxation are the keys to better control over your stress levels. We will show you different relaxation techniques to lower your stress levels, increase your sense of control and help you prevent burnout and other physical- and mental health issues.
