From stressed to blessed!

Did you know that this month is #stressawarenessmonth

Have you ever found yourself in a situation where your to-do list seems endless, deadlines are fast approaching and you find yourself saying ‘Eek! I feel stressed!’? But what is stress really, and how does it affect us?

Stress is primarily a physical response. When stressed, the body thinks it is under attack and switches to ‘fight or flight’ mode, releasing a complex mix of hormones and chemicals such as adrenaline, cortisol and norepinephrine to prepare the body for physical action. This causes a number of reactions, from blood being diverted to muscles to shutting down unnecessary bodily functions such as digestion.

We have 3 reactions to stress

  1. Fight - our mind and body fight against the stress

  2. Flight - we rise to the challenge of stress

The 3rd which is unknown to some

3. Freeze - we don't do anything.

There are many ways to deal with stress, such as having a positive mind, eating well, getting plenty of sleep, learning to say no, mastering your time, exercise and mindful activities.
