A lot has changed over the last month or so. It is a very different world. With change comes stress and anxiety about the future. It is a time of uncertainty for a lot of people.
I don't know about you, but I see a lot of people struggling with what is happening in their lives right now. Being isolated also creates challenges. Work has changed, or maybe even stopped. Home life is more challenging, perhaps with children being home schooled.
You may have little stress, or a lot of stress at the moment. Are your stress levels interfering with your daily life? I know at times it has interfered with my life.
Learning strategies for managing stress, tools to help you be calm, and to respond rather than react. These are all outcomes I can help you with.
I have spent a large part of my career in the corporate world, and am very familiar with stress, and know the impact it can have on both your physical and mental health. I wish I knew then what I know now. Stress would not have had the impact it did.

Stress can have a huge impact on your health and wellbeing. Are you feeling overwhelmed, worrying about the future, and not being effective in what you are doing? Read on.
Stress is defined as any environmental conditions that require behavioural adjustment. Stress is inevitable, and a normal part of life.
A little stress is good for you, it helps performance. Once stress increases to a level, fatigue sets in, then exhaustion, Illness and breakdown. Too little stress and you get bored.
Stress provides feedback. Stress is a physical expression of our “Fight or Flight” survival mechanism. A perceived threat will trigger a stress response in our body, which prepares us to confront or flee a potential danger. This helps for immediate danger, but unfortunately the stress response is also triggered by tense situations where physical action is not an option.
In today’s fast paced life, we are continually receiving signals that trigger our stress response.
Potential stress triggers include relationship breakdowns, financial problems, health concerns, caring for a newborn baby, traumatic events.
The stress response triggers changes in your body:
Stress causes chemical changes in the body that can have negative effects on both mental and physical health if the stress response continues. Chronis stress occurs when the stress response keeps the body on alert continuously.
Stress can be reduced by a number of methods. If possible.
If you would like to learn how to reduce and manage stress, join my meditation group, or come along to one of my workshops.
