Stress can kill you!
Oh, crap! We are all wound up so tight that we are constantly buzzing on cortisol.
Imagine white-knuckling it on a rollercoaster. All. Day. Long.
That’s us in 2016. The election. Financial problems. Work pressure. Terrorists. School. Illness. Pain. Gah!
We don’t have to look far to find something to stress over. And we don’t have time to focus on how to relieve stress and get help for our anxiety.
Our fear response is something that is meant for once in a while- the hungry tiger in the woods- not constantly. But since we are so wound up with pressure, and to-dos, and violence, and hardship, and loss, and feeling out of control, it is constant.
If you are not in immediate physical danger, the stress hormones make you feel lost, incompetent, and like you are going crazy. We are trying to fix our anxiety when there is this physical reaction that is making it very hard to think straight, let alone think ourselves out of it.
If you have constant high cortisol levels you have to work on how to relieve stress on the physical level, too.
