Are you sick of the stress in your life?
You used to love your life. Fueled by your dreams, each day began with a promise of adventure. Time flowed easily and effortlessly, leaving you energy to spare. An intoxicating surge from the occasional adrenaline rush provided a magical boost.
Over time, as the pace and intensity of your life increased, that occasional rush of adrenaline has now become a steady stream.
Many leading health experts now agree that the chronic buildup of mismanaged stress results in the development of lifestyle diseases (e.g., heart disease, cancer, strokes, and auto-immune disorders) that comprise today’s leading causes of death and disability.
So now you have the added stress of knowing that your stress can literally make you sick.
Would you like to be able to stress well? The first step in learning how to stress well is to determine how well you currently manage stress.
The body has one integrated response system (the autonomic nervous system) for handling all kinds of stressors–no matter their source. On the other hand, the body has many ways to tell us about its current capability. to handle incoming stressors. Unfortunately, as our lives get more stressful, we tend to forget to even listen for the messages our body is always sending us.
How do YOU respond to stress? I would love to share with you a simple, 5 minute test (with just fresh lemon juice and pH paper), that you can use right at home to measure how well your nervous system currently responds to stress.
