There has never been a more pivotal time to really fine-tune our connection with ourselves, assess our stress and also the way that we react and respond to life.
As humans, we are hardwired to harden in response to stress, it’s actually the way that we protect ourselves against perceived outside threat, think metaphorical lions, bears, snakes taking on the form of finances, career, everyday life stress. Taking this metaphor, imagine applying it to yourself when imagining how you respond to these stressors – guarded, on alert, ready to defend if necessary. The body is tense, the mind is on high alert assessing and analysing, breath is short and sharp and heart rate is quick.
In light of current world conditions, now is the time to learn new techniques to regulate our stress levels. I would love to share 3 steps you can take to feel more balanced, grounded and optimal.
