What is stress? Is it a mental construct or a physical ailment? The answer: both. It’s a life truth and can be defined as the sum of our biological and psychological reactions to outside stimuli. While a certain amount of stress can assist the body in gearing up to deal with the day, too much of it is universally negative.
The negative repercussions of stress are as myriad as its causes. Too much stress compromises physical, mental and emotional wellness. Stress has been linked to everything from high blood pressure and obesity to chronic cardiac concerns. In its more acute forms, it leads to panic attacks, nervous tics and impaired reasoning.
However, there is good news. Acute stress can be managed by making lifestyle changes. Discipline is the name of the game. The first step is to identify triggers, and try and avoid them. The next step is to make lifestyle changes.
A proper diet, with a healthy mix of probiotic ingredients, improves gut health and gives you the nutrition needed to balance mind and body, and resist external triggers.
Regular exercise is a very powerful tool for dealing with stress. Calming activities such as yoga and meditation keep you lose and limber – and also ease your “prana” – or life force.
Meanwhile, regular sleeping patterns and eight hours of sleep a night are essential to well-being. It’s also best to stay away from stimulants such as coffee, cigars, cigarettes and alcohol. Substitute these with regular massages, mindfulness and meditation.
Natural medicaments and herbs like Aswagandha, Brahmi and Ginko biloba can also help unlock natural calming mechanisms to keep stress at bay.
