You might know this already but l speak from experience when I say that a reminder is needed frequently. Stress is possibly the biggest hurdle you’re facing right now and you don’t even realize it… because it’s become so “normal”.
In a world that tries to measure you by how fast you are, stress is almost inevitable… or so it probably seems.
I’m not saying I live a stress-free life because that’s not entirely true but I sure do try. I used to use what I saw as “motivation” to show up like pressure in extreme volume everywhere in my life and move me forward. It took me a while before I realized that that kind of stress wasn’t really suited for anyone. Not anyone who is trying to live in fullness, health, ease, and joy at least.
But damn did I try to do all of it at the same time. Then the good stuff was a direct result of the overbearing stress moments and somewhere along the line, my body started to resent it… insert more stress here.
Stress compromises your immune system. It can also cause sleeplessness, an increased probability of not eating properly, and/or turning to vices more frequently for an “out”.
All of which also can affect your body’s ability to fight off illness.
Please keep that in mind when you choose something over that mindfulness practice that you know should be a priority.
Please keep this in mind the next time you choose junk or no food over something that you know is nourishing.
Please keep this in mind the next time you choose anything oversleep repeatedly.
Being aware is a great tool.
Being prepared is also a valuable use of your energy, but panic and stress ultimately will add to the problem. Preparation is key to preventing more stress and panic.
Not sure how to do that? Or even where to get started?
I’m working on a bit of a guide style sharing that will help in some of these areas. If you’re interested in receiving it (it’s free btw), Make sure you sign up for my newsletter list.
Small shifts to reduce stress are what we’re looking for.
