Let’s face it – life is stressful at times. And that’s ok once it’s giving you a buzz and creating positive energy. It’s when it builds up and you no longer feel in control that it becomes an issue.
There has been a lot in the news recently about the impact of stress related illnesses on businesses and the economy. While the statistics are a bit scary, it also means that the scale of the problem is finally being recognised. For too long mental health has been pretty much a taboo subject and seen as a weakness. We tend to feel inadequate when we have to deal with it, particularly in the work situation.
Now we are starting to realise that there’s an epidemic of stress related illnesses out there. So it’s time to treat our mental wellbeing as proactively as our physical health.
Stress targets your body and your emotions. Over time it can make you ill, lowering your immune system, contributing to heart disease and high blood pressure. It can cause muscle and joint pain, is linked to Irritable Bowel Syndrome and allergies. And prolonged severe stress can cause mental health illnesses, such as anxiety or depression.
We cannot avoid stress but we can manage it. The key to this is to recognise the signs of stress in both ourselves and others as quickly as possible and decide to do something about it.
And that’s where Stress Less Naturally comes in. Our purpose is to provide the best quality holistic therapy and advice to help you to improve your wellbeing. Having had to deal with severe prolonged stress in both my personal and work life, I know how debilitating the effects of stress can be, and how isolated it can make you feel. And I’m also living proof that it’s possible to be mentally stronger and more resilient once you come through it.
I can work with you to identify the source of your stress and using natural holistic therapy, help you to handle it better. This will reduce its negative effect on your body, and help you to feel healthier, calmer and more in control. If you feel that this could help you, please get in touch.
