Stress – for everyone. Whether you need a few easy tips or help breaking the cycle of constant stress, Dr. J can steer you in the right direction. Many stressful situations arise everyday and most people don’t realize that stress is a physiological phenomenon – meaning we have an emotional AND a physical response. This physical response can actually damage the body over time due to the release of cortisol and adrenaline. While adrenaline keeps on alert for danger in the short term, cortisol keeps us on alert long term and induces the body to store fat. After the body has been stressed for several days, the damage becomes chronic and is more difficult to overcome. Other hormones become involved in the stress response and many people have difficulty sleeping, focusing, keeping their “cool,” and being happy. As the happy hormones, serotonin and dopamine are effected, the stress just seems overwhelming. And these hormones won’t just heal on their own. The need to be brought back into balance so the body can calm down, and vice versa, the body needs to calm down to bring the hormones back into balance.
This class will teach you some tips to help with short term stress to prevent the downward spiral into chronic stress, and tips for chronic stress to help dig your way back out of the stress of overwhelming stress – too much stress in this sentence.
