Are You Struggling with Stress? Finding it difficult to switch off or relax?
Chronic NEGATIVE STRESS is not a natural state of being, it is a state of di-stress. Chronic stress can leave you feeling out of control, vulnerable, exhausted and a huge list of other unwanted symptoms.
Now the physiological STRESS response is an innate survival response to any event or situation that may cause us harm or danger. But modern day stress is more based on F.E.A.R. false evidence appearing real. The fight or flight reaction, an over response to every day uncomfortable situations. This is often triggered by beliefs, conditioning, memories and unhealthy thinking patterns we have taken on from early as childhood.
Chronic stress is when someone finds it difficult to switch off and relax. They have usually been suffering from a constant state of stress, in a state of hyperarousal over long periods of time. With the right steps, you can encourage the body back into harmony and balance.
