In this 10th and final episode of our summer energy series with Christy Mattoon of Mindrewire we talked about the difference between a band-aid and a permanent solution. If you can solve what’s causing your stress symptoms now you can avoid disease later.
Daily high levels of stress over time lead to disease. In fact over 80 diseases are tied directly to stress. Since it’s a personal perception each of us needs to find a personal way to recognize and deal with our stress symptoms.
Destressing on a daily basis is important for the health of your:
- Subconscious mind
If you have more stress than the body can handle it could be interfering with your optimal energy, your optimal weight and the strategies you’re employing may be actually increasing your stress load. Some degree of stress is necessary! It’s not just unavoidable due to our meaningful lives: the people and things we love are the most likely to cause us stress! But in fact you, like a kite or violin, need a certain amount of tension to thrive. It’s not about trying to eliminate stress as much as trying to relieve it by adding joy to the equation. While you’re busy, while your building a career and caring for others, taking time to fill your own cup and find happiness and joy in every day will decrease stress symptoms.
