Ep 11: Let’s Explore Stress
Today’s episode is all about stress. What is stress? Pressure and tension that are either from external sources such as other people, like family or our boss or internal sources from ourselves.
The state of mental emotional strain as a result of demanding circumstances.
Your negative feelings can create physiological changes such as changes in your skin, heart rate, digestion, joints, muscles, energy levels, even the hairs on your head and the countless cells and systems you don’t even know about that are effected with every Emotion!
You can not always eliminate stress, but you can learn to manage it. There are of course the ways we all know about but it never hurts to hear them again; exercise such as walking, riding your bike, running, and swimming. And then there are ways to calm the jitters such as taking a hot bath, mediating, laying down or even taking a nap or sleeping more hours.
We also discuss digestion and STRESS’ toll; 1. decreased nutrients, 2 decreased oxygen to the gut, 3. elevated cholesterol, 4. elevated triglycerides 5. increased food sensitivities and 6. heart burn.
We go into a little more details about heartburn, stress and the over use of anti acids. This part is very important.
I hope you are inspired to make at least one change either by adding something positive in your life to manage your stress better like taking up walking or riding your bike, or that you start to improve your overall life and stop working 70 and 80 hours a week.
