Our lives seem to be getting more and more stressful, with bills to pay, the pressure of work, exams, trying to maintain relationships and juggle responsibilities at home. I’ve seen more and more people suffering from anxiety and needing seeking some help to find calm in an often manic world. I myself specialise in anxiety as I really love the feeling I get when I see my clients go away a completely new person – much more relaxed and in control!
Our mind cannot tell the difference between real stress and what we build up in our mind as imagined stress. Whether it is real or imagined stress our bodies response is the same, it activates our fight or flight response. When I think of the fight or flight response I always think of a caveman facing up to a predator, as this is where it really develops from, the caveman can either fight the predator or he can run away and hope he is fast enough to outrun it. Adrenaline is released into our system and we prepare ourselves for what we have to face. This fight of flight response has kept us alive for millions of years so in the short term it can be very beneficial, but it’s when we have long term stress when it can become a problem, because to maintain the adrenaline in our systems our immune system goes into immunosuppression, simply put it isn’t working as well as it should. This opens our bodies up to all kinds of potential illnesses and ailments. Our mind is also in overdrive and we cannot slow it down because we have this constant adrenaline flowing through our bodies. No wonder we get so exhausted and run down!
