Stress busters

19 Jun 2018   Shanti Gowans
 
Stress is the leading cause of chronic illness.
 
It's not just the one-off stressful moments, but the everyday, low-grade stress: overwhelm and chaos, endless to-do lists, constant rushing, and worry about the past and future that's silently taking years off your life.
 
You might be able to identify some of your stressors from this list:

1. Physical: intense exertion, manual labour, lack of sleep, travel

2. Chemical: drugs, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, and environmental pollutants such as cleaning chemicals or pesticides

3. Mental: perfectionism, worry, anxiety, long work hours

4. Emotional: anger, guilt, loneliness, sadness, fear

5. Nutritional: food allergies, vitamin, and mineral deficiency

6. Traumatic: injuries or burns, surgery, illness, infections, extreme temperatures

7. Psycho-spiritual: troubled relationships, financial or career pressures, challenges with life goals, spiritual alignment, happiness.

Creating a deep connection with your inner world allows you to deal with the outside world with more ease and confidence.
 
You can overcome chaos and turn stress into stillness by:
- resolving the conflict in your life
- doing Shanti Yoga and Yoga Nidra to instantly reduce stress
- observe your moods, thoughts and feelings so that you can let go and experience deep relaxation
- find silence in your busy mind through mindfulness.
- practicing breathing meditation to find peace and calmness.
