Posts Tagged ‘immune system’

Research shows a direct link between stress and heart disease, stroke, cancer and other life-changing illnesses. We know it lowers the immune system so that we are more susceptible to the common cold and heightened allergies. If you wait until you’re feeling stressed before you use some technique for managing stress, it may be too late. You need to have a bag of tricks that you can deploy proactively. Turning to them throughout the day changes your threshold of stress tolerance. It’s more important than ever to learn as many antistress techniques as possible, as young as possible. The biochemical response to stress is cued up as much by random, upsetting events in the environment as by negative thinking – our own or people we spend a great deal of time with – as well as trying to keep up with the fast pace and increasing demands of modern life, or mental habits like perfectionism or procrastination. There are skills and habits of mind which are beneficial to our health and reduce the negative effects of stress that cause physical illness. The development of these skills is stress-resilience training. I will be sharing an overview of techniques and strategies with you in a FREE teleclass April 1- no joke! with a three week in depth series following. In the NY Metro area, check out two wholistic wellness fairs in April that I’m involved with. I will be facilitating weekend courses at Dowling Institute and an EFT(tapping) Training http://www.balanceandpower.com/eft.php   at the Balance & Power Center in May.
