You Probably Have a Stress Problem, If You Answer ‘Yes’ to These Questions!

Do you sometimes feel that you don’t have enough hours in the day?

ime flies, doesn’t it?

People tend to plan their day but then – suddenly it’s already 11:00 pm!

Then, they go to bed, sleep and when they wake up they still do the same thing over and over again.

Well, that’s the world of the adults whose everyday tasks are growing day by day, but yet still only the same amount of hours in a day?

Can someone please tell me how that is supposed to work, please? I’m confused.

It is very easy to give up and lose motivation for reaching your dreams and goals when it feels like your partner, boss, friends, kids & pets all come before you.

Although, we all have a different daily agenda, our lives are not so different, really. We all have feelings, emotions, thoughts – and tons of sh*t going on.
Can you take a moment to tune in on how you are truly feeling – right now, in this moment?

-HOW IS LIFE?

Are you on the brink of tears and inches away from a mental breakdown?

Are you bored and frustrated with life?

you are  unsure what is going to “come next” for you?

Are you feeling like you’re treading water but not moving anywhere?

Are you TIRED of feeling TIRED all the time?

If you have a 5/5 score on those feelings above, then you need a Recharge because you are too stressed.

Do you think that your stress levels can be related to what you are feeling and experiencing (or not experiencing) in your life right now?

-Stress

You’re probably wondering what a Recharge is, and how you can get one…

First of all, we need to change the way we think about stress. It’s very important for us to observe it from the rather deep view, so that we can really understand where it is coming from, and then we can let it go.

Stress is not what happens to us.
Stress is our RESPONSE to what happens – and a response is something that we can choose.

-Your Stress Q & A

Maybe you’re not convinced that your stress levels can be related back to your current state of health. If you can answer ‘yes’ to 3 (or more) of these statements below, take this as a clear sign that you need to address your stress and take time to Recharge.

  • Are you sleeping like crap at night?
  • Do you still feel tired after 8-hours of sleep?
  • Does exercise further drain you of energy?
  • Have you been trying to lose the same 10-20 lbs for a while now but your body just won’t budge?
  • Is your skin in feeling dull and is the ‘tired’ visible on your face?
  • Do you just feel EXHAUSTED on a day-to-day basis?
  • Are you always ready for bed?
  • Are you counting down the time until your next coffee break?
  • Is your MD concerned with a hypo or hyper active thyroid?
  • Do you crave salt like it’s no bodies business?
  • Is your digestion constantly off? Are you bloated right now?

The stress that we face today is different than the stress we had hundreds or even thousands of years ago.

-Stress

We all know that we no longer live a ‘simple life’. It’s pretty easy to trigger stress now – and when you’re in a bad mood, it’s so easy to find that one last little thing that just puts you over the top.

Moreover, even just THINKING about something that frustrates you can actually create stress for your body.

What I’m trying to get at here, and what you need to know and remember is: your brain, at a cellular level, can’t really tell the difference between the stress of a pressing deadline at work, and the stress of running for dear life from a carnivorous wild animal.

It’s a common scenario in this modern world for our stress mode to never “turn-off”. So for many, the body thinks it’s in danger, all the time, 24/7. This opens the door to greet some unfavourable stress-related symptoms.

-Quick Stress Test

Take a moment here are think about how many times your stress mode is activated in a typical day.

For most, it can be activated immediately upon rising.

Let’s say you wake up late and are rushing to get ready in time – TRIGGERED.
Get in a nice good-morning argument with your spouse, sibling, parent or kid? – TRIGGERED.
Stuck in traffic during your morning commute? – TRIGGERED.
Opening your email inbox to painfully-specific, undermining or demanding emails from your boss/coworker? – TRIGGERED.

I’m gonna go out on a limb here and say stress is probably the reason why:

  • You can’t get a good night’s sleep
  • Life feels overwhelming
  • You can’t reach your goal weight
  • Increase in anxiety & depression
  • You feel like you can’t cope anymore
  • Have lost all motivation and drive
  • Your heart always feels like it’s racing, and the sweat – o.m.g.
  • Digestion is off and eating almost anything is making you bloated
  • You have a non-existent libido
  • Hyper and hypo thyroid related issues are developed

Feeling stressed for too long may have a negative impact on your health. Experiencing non-stop stress, long-term weakens ALL of the systems in your body– beginning with the adrenal glands, and often the thyroid comes next.
