Unless you read it, and think it has the potential to change your life.
Stress. We know it all too well.
Whether physical or psychological. Real or perceived.
Too much of it and it’ll affect...
Our sleep, digestion, performance,
Cognitive function, so things like focus, rational thinking, memory.
We even hold it in parts of our body.
Too little, and we probably just wouldn’t get much done 😂
I can personally say that I’ve been pretty stressed the last few months.
This week I even started feeling the tension in my upper neck and traps.
There’s a lot of factors, some of which we can’t control, that might be contributing to all of our stress, right?
For me - it’s mostly feeling like I have so much to do and learn, so little time, and feeling like a fraud until I meet my “acceptable criteria” aka tick all the boxes I set for myself.
Up until now I’ve chosen to mostly ignore these feelings and try to “soldier on” or “work through it”, with no success.
ENOUGH is enough, I’ve decided to tackle this from a different angle.
This time I’m addressing the stress FIRST.
Focus on calming my mind so I can make RATIONAL decisions, and maintain focus on the activities I decide to pursue.
And I want to share this journey with you!
I can’t promise it will always be coherent and organized, but I will do my best.
To finish off, I’ll tell you what approaches I’ll be exploring:
- breathing exercises
I hope you’ll be able to take something away from following me through this adventure, and if you have questions please let me know and I’ll try to answer them as best I can 😊 #stressfreezone
