Once we are caught up in the stress cycle, it can be difficult to come back down. If we have been dealing with a stressful situation for some time, we learn to respond in certain ways both mentally/emotionally and physically.
Our bodies are well equipped to deal with real danger. When faced with a lion, our body will respond automatically with a ‘fight or flight or freeze’ response. The aim of this would be to save our life – the effort our body would experience would hopefully be well worth it!
When we are stressed our body is responding in a similar way to things which have become triggers. These might be situations at work such as meetings, or difficult people in our lives. They are not life-threatening but we learn to react, firing up the adrenalin glands as a coping mechanism.
When this becomes habitual (not through choice but by your body subconsciously trying to help you stay away from danger) it’s puts strain on mind body and emotions. We can become exhausted or begin to suffer from regular feelings of anxiety or unease.
The good news is that the stress cycle can be broken and you can return to balance. Some things to consider
