STRESS NO MORE
Updated: Feb 23, 2019
Stress can be described as a negative mental state that we may get stuck in due to adverse life circumstances or even the perception of adverse circumstances. This negative mental state carries a lot of energy and is capable of overpowering our lives if not addressed. It often manifests in chronic pain (such as back, neck or shoulder pain) or it may manifest as panic attacks, obsessive compulsive disorders, or relationship issues. Fortunately, there is now a huge body of medical and neuroscientific research that demonstrates how we can work through this by incorporating a regular practice of mindfulness meditation and without resorting to pharmaceuticals. The practice includes simple breathing techniques that can activate the relaxation response in the body, thereby alleviating the ravages caused by excess stress hormones. Furthermore, mindfulness and meditation techniques help us to build the ‘muscle of discernment’ – which sheds light on situations in life that need skillful action versus those that need acceptance, patience or a gentle letting go.
