Stress. Never heard of it? I’m totally joking because we all know about regular-schmegular stress, but what about Eustress? Or pre-traumatic stress? I used to be THE worst person I knew when it came to dealing with stress, but I have changed that quite a lot. Having an autoimmune disease forced me to wake up and see how truly destructive stress was for my health.

I’m sharing the story of my personal rock bottom with stress in my life and how I started to turn things around. If you tend to react to stress in extreme ways, it very well could be a trauma response. Science has also proven that if you can re-learn the way you think about stress, that in itself can even minimize the destructive side effects it has on your health over the course of years and decades.

Listen to this episode before you hit your version of rock bottom with stress and before autoimmune health issues happen. 

 

Other things you’ll learn in this episode:
• How stress responses are often a side-effect of unhealed trauma
• How COVID lockdown has been easier than dealing with the stress, instability, and isolation of having an autoimmune disease that was triggered by allowing stress to run my life
• How to begin to improve your recovery time from a stress response
• How society gives us an illusion that stress is not dangerous and how to change that
• How to learn to observe yourself and your thoughts as an outsider the next time stress starts to take over
• The harm of extended cardio if you’re chronically stressed out
• The harm of choosing exercise over sleep if you’re chronically stressed out
• The benefits of adrenal support supplements
