Stress destroys mental clarity. Stress hormones redirect blood in the brain; preventing oxygen and energy from reaching the rational and intelligent
Learn how to identify your brain state and redirect it back to joy.
We often use unhealthy habits to artificially soothe stress such as consuming addictive food and reckless shopping. But there is another way to soothe and release stress:
Breathe: Take three deep breaths to re-oxygenate the brain.
Relax: Telling your body to ‘relax’ sends new signals to the brain.
Observe: Watch your thoughts and ask yourself ‘what state am I in?’
Enquire: Ask yourself questions about what’s going on right now.
Acknowledge: It's ok to feel what you are feeling (numb is a feeling too).
Release: Can you let it go? Can you move on? Can you smile? What do you need?
Comfort: Find healthy ways to support yourself that nurture your body and mind.
Repeat: The more you choose to check-in and self-soothe the easier it gets!
Comfort from Within
Stress helped our ancestors live longer, but we need to switch it up a gear to ‘thrive’ and not just stay alive. Stress is one of the biggest killers as it silently degrades our ability to rejuvenate.
Stress wears the body out before its time and pushes the mind into a downward spiral.
Turn off stress, move your mental state, and rediscover the joy of healthy and happy neurology.
THINK…How can you soothe stress and be extra lovely to yourself today?
