OK, so What exactly is stress?
According to the Oxford dictionary stress is defined as” a state of mental or emotional strain or tension result
ing from adverse or demanding circumstances”.
Of all the nasty stuff that chronic stress levels can cause (like immunosuppression, sleep disorders, eating disorders etc) the scariest one for me is having an unexpected heart attack.
The probability of an unexpected heart attack seems to creep up as you get older.
Probably due to a combination of lack of exercise, an increasing workload, and sleep deprivation as you move through parenting and all the responsibilities that come with it.
Over the years I’ve discovered some very useful strategies/insights have proved helpful in weathering the storm of stressful situations. I’ve managed to walk away without too much of an emotional battering.
I suggest you try ’em out … right now.
And if you think it’s worth another shot … do it again tomorrow.
