How Stress can Make you sick
Stress hormones can keep us safe. But Chronic Stress hormones can make us sick.
A nice overview of how chronic stress changes our body. The problem is not stress it is CHRONIC stress.
Our body starts changing instantly with stress. We are designed to respond to a threat with the Physical Emergency Stress response.
But long lingering periods of running a Stress Response begins to negatively influence our health.
This is one of the things we focus on with the Lightning Process – teaching people how to spot and turn off this Physical Emergency Response. There is more to the Lightning Process than just learning to relax but its a powerful start to be able to consciously take charge of the moment and calm the body.
“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” Victor Frankle
