STEP ONE: Identify Imbalances
The signs of stress and the imbalances they cause are often very noticeable. The problem is that millions of people simple live with them instead of taking a proactive approach to identifying and correcting the issue in their lives.
Below are some of the symptoms that we come across most frequently.
Symptoms of Stress and Imbalance
• Weight gain
• Trouble sleeping heartburn excessive hunger laziness
• Cold hands and feet
• Cravings for sugar or salt
• Mood swings
• Low energy levels
• Trouble focusing pain
• Frequent headaches difficulty losing weight hair loss
STEP TWO: Balance the Body and Eliminate Stress
These two actions should be done together. Once you have identified the imbalances, it is important to address them in order to balance your body.
Remember: Imbalances can prevent you from avoiding stress, so trying to simply avoid stress is not enough. Address the imbalance and eliminate the stress simultaneously if possible.
It’s almost like a child throwing a ball off the garage door. Overtime, dents will form, the paint will chip and eventually the door will not work. Simply telling the child to stop throwing the ball at the garage door will not repair the damage that has already been done. At the same time, fixing the door without stopping the child from throwing the ball will have no long term benefit.
The body is the same way. It is important to take measures that address the specific issues you are experiencing, but it is equally important to begin avoiding the stresses that got you there in the first place.
A Useful Tool for your Journey
There is no way to avoid stress if you don’t know where it is coming from. You need to be mindful of negative symptoms and identify potential problems before they happen.
These symptoms are often things like trouble sleeping, cravings for carbohydrates or an energy drop in the afternoon.
