What is Stress?

Stress is a  mind-body process that happens in response to triggers in your life.  For example, it can occur when you are running late, having an argument, trying to achieve a deadline or just when you are beating yourself up when you don’t reach what you set out to do. 

A certain amount of stress is good for you.  For instance, when you work out, creating that stress environment promotes bone and muscle growth and creates resilience in the body, helping it become more muscular, tougher, and ready for more. 

Emotional stress can also not be a terrible thing.  On the contrary, overcoming obstacles promotes learning, adjusting and changing your approach to situations, so you have the tools to deal with a similar problem at another time. 


How Stress Impacts You

Stress feels like tenseness through your entire system.  Whether or not you think your stress is happening in your brain, the truth is you also feel it in your body. 

Stress impacts all systems in your body, including the musculoskeletal, respiratory, cardiovascular, endocrine, gastrointestinal, nervous, and reproductive systems.   


The Health implications of Stress

Similar to animals, we are hard-wired for stress as a safety mechanism.  However, chronic stress can lead to a range of physical health problems, such as cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, and digestive problems. 

Prolonged stress can weaken the immune system, making you more susceptible to infections and illnesses.

It can also make existing health conditions worse, such as asthma and diabetes, and increase the risk of developing chronic diseases such as obesity, depression, and anxiety.

Stress can also lead to anxiety, depression, and other mood disorders. Prolonged stress is proven to change your brain chemistry.  It reduces serotonin levels contributing to the development of mood disorders.

When you are stressed you develop cognitive problems, such as difficulty concentrating and memory loss. It also contributes to changes in sleep patterns, appetite, and substance use.

Overall, the health implications of stress are significant.  Find out how to manage your stress levels to promote both physical and mental well-being.


Processing and resolving Stress

To reach optimal health and life outcomes, relieving stress makes good sense.  EFT is a highly effective tool to resolve and dissolve tension, as it works with the thoughts you have and the impact on the body. 

Working with an EFT Practitioner, you learn techniques to dissolve stress and create a whole new internal environment that promotes health, wellbeing and resilience.  

A great partner to EFT is hypnotherapy, helping the subconscious to revisit the core of the stress response, and when used with other talk therapy techniques such as CBT, you can create a whole new reality, and with it, a calm, centered internal environment.
