The Importance of Understanding the Elements of Stress
Stress as I regularly mention in my articles and blogs is something that we cannot and are not able to totally avoid.
Stress is something that needs to be recognized, also the triggers and how you can learn to identify these triggers.
Your body is hard-wired to react to stress in ways meant to protect you against threats from predators and other aggressors, so as to act in a fight or flight manner.
Threats from outside predators and aggressors are rare today, but that doesn’t mean that life is free of stress. On the contrary, the common elements of stress are obvious such as the death of a loved one, moving of a house, injury, work issues, finances, how people speak and treat us: personal fears and obstacles.
Your body does not recognize the difference between so-called minor stresses to major ones, so as a result you may well that you are feeling under pressure constantly even when you are not.
To help to minimize the harmful effects of stress on your body it is vital that you don’t allow stress to control your life, but that you take control..
Taking control of the stress, therefore eliminating the harmful effects it has within your body.
When you learn begin to put things into place to help you to cope and manage these stresses. This helps you not only to handle the stresses more effectively.
It also sends messages of comfort, confidence, love and self healing within your body. By allowing these feelings of comfort and care for yourself. It has a significant positive effect on your health.
Regular Massage Therapy has many positive effects in balancing your brain and nervous system, helping to detoxify, improve immune function, improves agility and muscular function.
