Letting go of Stress
I think we all know and understand that the research on stress has shown it to be lethal to our health. Stress causes hormones to be released , namely adrenaline and cortisol. When you live in a constant state of stress this can be disastrous to your mind and body. But, this is not the only problem….
Effects of not letting the stressor go
Research is now showing that even years later simply re-living the past stress causes the exact same complications to your body as it did the when the stress initially happened! So for people like me, the over thinkers, we’re literally killing ourselves over and over just by re-playing the scene out, even months and years later. When we don’t learn to let go, it just doesn’t play mind games with our emotions, it literally is killing you.
Your psychology makes your biology…..it’s true my friends!
“You’ll never let go if you keep
allowing your mind to take you back…”
This is a tough one for sure, and one that I haven’t mastered, but I continually work on living in the present, it’s the only way to train your mind not to dwell in the past.
