Lately, I’ve been diving deep into understanding our stress response, not to eliminate it, but to offer better support. My aim is to help my clients effectively manage stress by completing, metabolizing, and discharging it for a healthier approach.
Soon, I’ll be sharing a video on this topic. But for now, let me share something fascinating about the initial phases of stress. In the first 15 minutes, you experience a 30-second adrenaline rush that needs to be released – simple actions like shaking out your arms or stretching can help. After that, cortisol steps in to rescue you from the potentially harmful effects of adrenaline, and it’s designed to last anywhere from 20 minutes to 3 hours.
To help you grasp this concept, picture your body as a team of courageous firefighters facing stressful situations, equipped with a special tool called “cortisol” to stay strong and handle challenges effectively.
Sometimes, stress can become overwhelming, leaving us feeling stuck. During such moments, different tools are required, like taking time to rest and recharge. However, when actively dealing with stress, our goal is to support our inner superheroes in generating more cortisol, empowering them to remain resilient and avoid freezing up.
Understanding how to support your specific type of stress is the key to becoming a stress-handling pro! Are you currently experiencing an active stress response or feeling trapped in the “freeze” mode? Identifying this will help you tailor your approach.
If you need superhero strength to conquer active stress, this isn’t a time to decrease cortisol levels, but rather provide you with tools to stay resilient.
On the other hand, if you’re feeling frozen and require time to recharge, we have a different set of tools to help you relax and emerge stronger.
Let’s explore these stress-busting tools together in a personalized call! My secrets will equip you to conquer stress and face life’s challenges with confidence. Together, we’ll turn stress into your superpower!
