Are you feeling stressed? We get it - life can get crazy and the world seems to be changing without regard for our comfort zones. Let's interpret this discomfort as a push from the universe to prioritize wellness and our self care rituals. It takes patience to discover your best wellness practices and we are here to guide and support you.
Step One: Understanding The Cortisol Hormone
Do you know what cortisol is? It’s the stress hormone that starts to control your health and life. The more stress in your life the higher the level of Cortisol. So ask yourself what you actually want to stress over. If you allow small stressors in your life you are also welcoming higher cortisol levels. You know that saying “learn to say no” - try thinking of it more as you’re saying no to stress and cortisol and yes to health and wellness.
Cortisol is the hormone responsible for the physical symptoms such as headaches, muscle tension, and anxiety that you encounter during stressful times. Prolonged stress means prolonged cortisol levels in the body and the harder your body has to work to find a balance. Thus, it should be of no surprise to stop feeling like yourself when stressed. Just remember your wellness journey is also about accepting that stress looks and feels different for everyone. Listening to your body is key and will promote the balance your body is fighting for.
Step Two: Listen to your body!
Do you know how to listen to your body? Try listening to your body by quieting the mind and practicing self awareness and mindfulness. If you are dealing with anxiety and depression try journaling or speaking with a therapist. For other symptoms, try implementing a full body scan anywhere from two to five minutes. Yes, five minutes can make all the difference in your health. You can perform a full body scan while shampooing your hair in the shower, during a walk in nature, or simply right before bed.
While performing your full body scan ask yourself what your stress triggers are and how you can prevent and cope with them. Then ask yourself if you've noticed any of these symptoms: acne, anxiety, depression, digestive problems, headaches, muscle tension and pain, hair loss and shedding, sleep problems, weight gain, and memory and concentration impairment.
Now that you have started listening to your body you will need to practice patience, as you confront your stress triggers and learn to cope with your symptoms.
