Today I am off to do some more filming with the World Health Heroes for their You Tube Channel.
(https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-BAwhG6JwbWpc79p4dLEbw). The Channel is a mass of free content from complementary health professionals and is worth subscribing to.
Today we are filming a couple of episodes, one of them will be about stress.
I must manage my stress levels as I react physically when I allow myself to be stressed, either with eczema or an ulcerative colitis flare up. (apologies for the over share but it is important!)
This means that I have a sign, my body tells me it’s time to slow down, time to review what I am doing and how I am doing it. I wouldn’t describe myself as a worrier, I don’t suffer with anxiety and I don’t lie awake at night worrying about things so it is good that my body gives me a little nudge sometimes.
We all have a different trigger. For some people, it is changes to sleep, mood swings, change in the foods we want to eat, lethargy, anxiety are just a few examples but it is important to keep an eye on how frequently you are experiencing the ‘warning signs’.
Do you keep a track? Very few people do and so do not spot changes in their behaviour in the early stages.
So how can you keep your stress levels reduced? Here are a couple of tips that I will be sharing today:
If you cannot change or control it then put it aside until circumstances change and you can.
The ‘Phoenix Planner’ has been designed to help you plan, track and monitor all of the above. This will be available soon as either an A5 diary or as pdf downloads.
