We all have it, but the trick is to be able to deal with it effectively to keep health in your body, your mind and your spirit!  This article by Dr. Farmer speaks to me about stress in our daily lives.  Find out some simple and effective things you can do to help increase your health and deal with the stress in your life.

Managing Stress In Modern Times by Dr. Farmer

We are in an ever-accelerating “hurry up” culture, one in which human beings are required to make remarkable adaptations to increasingly technologically driven lifestyles and consumer-oriented pressures.  This spiraling pace requires us to move so quickly that we tend to override and become desensitized to our bodily sensations and our feelings.

Need Some Stress Relief?

In this anesthetized state we ironically require more stimulation— bigger, better, newer, louder, faster— just to grab and hold our attention.  We become so saturated with excessive stimulation and cumulative tension that we may become numb to all but the most adrenaline producing experiences or else attempt to soothe the frayed nervous system with alcohol, drugs or ignore it with compulsive activity.

One of the unfortunate effects of being assimilated into such a system is that we become increasingly alienated from the awareness of physical sensations, so that it becomes difficult to notice the more subtle signs of stress and tension where they first manifest— in the body. 

When these subtle tensions are ignored, one of the more damaging cumulative effects is that the immune system is compromised.  Resources typically available for the immune response are shunted into dealing with a consistently high level of activation present in the body. 

The potential for illness increases proportionate to the length of time these signs are ignored.  It may take a physical breakdown or exhaustion to get us to slow down and allow the immune response to regenerate; sometimes this ignore-ance over a period of years can contribute to a major life-threatening illness.
