Common Types Of Stress
When reading these, keep an open mind and think of ways these stressors impact you and your life. You may notice that you have some from each category, and that is okay! Being totally honest with yourself is the quickest path to health.
This category can be a hard one to avoid, especially when the chemicals are in the air. This includes pollution, pesticides, herbicides, cleaning products, personal care products, medications and other drugs, caffeine, alcohol, and nicotine.Work through this category slowly by changing the products you use every day in your home and on your body, and work out from there. There is no such thing as perfection with this category. We can only do our best.
Now is a perfect time to start working on some of your deep down emotions to help release the stress attached to them. Finding a therapist or some other professional is a great way to work on this.
All of the areas under this category are going to be greatly helped when working with a professional. They can pinpoint the areas where you need guidance, and then will give you good action steps to get you going in the right direction. You do not need to live with the thoughts and beliefs that you have held onto all these years.
As you can see, these are the BIG issues. The things that are difficult to deal with or sometimes to even know about if we keep them hidden deep down. Finding these can be tricky and then working through them is a whole other process.
For this category, if you know you’re dealing with deep-seated emotions, seek a professional that aligns with your views. By this I mean, find someone who does work you believe in: therapist, any kind of energy work (reiki, craniosacral therapy, qigong, acupuncture, shiatsu, acupressure), homeopathy, etc.You may find that to help with this category of stress takes time and effort. The good news is that you can have some huge gains if you work through these issues.
The body has specific dietary needs when it is working on healing from a physical trauma, so be sure to seek this information out when in this situation. (Side note – this is a perfect reason to work with me!)
Food is such a huge part of our journey back to health, and I love seeing the positive results when a client follows the recommendations.
