Fact #1: Your body doesn’t care if it’s a big stress or a little one.
Remember all those times you told yourself, it's ok, I'm not stressed it's small in the scheme of things? Well apparently our body doesn't discriminate when it comes to stress. Big or small, stress affects our body in a predictable way.
Fact #2: Stress can make smart people do stupid things.
I've been here, you reflect back on how you've just navigated a situation, or regulated yourself and wondered, why oh why did I just behave like that? Fact no 2 is why! Stress causes cortical inhibition, which basically means we are no longer in sync.
Fact #3: People can become numb to their stress.
Most of my life I've told myself "I don't feel stressed" as my thinking style is an optimistic one and in challenging circumstance's I could always find the good. Download the PDF at the end of this article and I can tell you I've suffered from almost all of these. This one really resonates with me as I was great at adapting to challenging situations and so mentally I was numb to stress, but my body told me otherwise.
Fact #4: We can control how we respond to stress.
We can take back control with the Heartmath approach. Its a science backed approach based on the heart-brain system, proven to deliver sustainable outcomes for participants.
