Do you really understand what stress is?
Everyone experiences stress, either big or small, either for a short period of time or for prolonged periods of time. It’s a normal part of being human, what’s stressful one of us will be completely different for another.
The important thing is to learn how to best deal with our stress before it becomes chronic. Before it becomes normal! Stress can easily sneak in and stay with us if we don’t take time to work on ourselves; either changing our environment or our perception. It’s important to recognise that stress affects us in many ways, not just how we feel but also how we act and can even have physical side effects.
Your body may tell you you’re under too much stress with head aches, a tightness of the chest, fatigue or muscle aches and pains (normally in the shoulder and neck). You may experience mood swings, sudden anger or the need to fill a void with substance abuse or over/under eating. You may feel completely over whelmed or a total lack of motivation. You could experience anxiety or restlessness. Alongside increasing your chances of high blood pressure, heart problems, diabetes, skin conditions, asthma, arthritis and depression.
Many of you will have heard that yoga can help relieve stress and improve your mood. The fact is it can! But this depends on the type of yoga a vinyasa flow or Astanga won’t give you the same results as breath work and meditation.
Simply put you will see quicker results if you work on to the nervous system!
