The truth is that stress has many different emotions and many different faces and stress effects our daily wellbeing in more ways than we are conscious of.
Stress also has automated pathways in the body, have you ever felt like being stressed just happened to you? Well maybe it did. The body has what we call an autonomic nervous system, this literally means that this system runs automatically. The autonomic nervous system is apart of our peripheral nervous system and has two parts; the Sympathetic nervous system and the Parasympathetic nervous system.
The Sympathetic nervous system is responsible for our "fight or flight" response; the Parasympathetic nervous system is responsible for our "rest and digest" response. To create wellness in the body we must have a well balanced autonomic response to situations, which includes having a balanced autonomic nervous system.
But the million dollar question is how? How do we create an environment in which we all have balanced autonomic nervous systems?
