Often we say and hear from others "Yeah I run away!" In fact, there's an explanation of WHY it's gone, because it's really gone, it's not just metaphorical.
Have you ever wondered why people go through crises when they have too much stress?
So, given the current situation and the great "woes" that have beenfall such people ... and they may now be experiencing job loss, financial pressures, and trying to support themselves and their families healthy, which triggers a chain of events.
According to Harvard Health Publishing, Harvard Medical School, the brain responds to what is called the 'amygdala', which senses danger and sends a distress signal to the hypothalamus. This part of the brain is like a command center that communicates with the rest of the body through the nervous system.
When the hypothalamus receives a signal of distress and stress harmony drowns our body and provides humans with an energy burst to respond to any perceived danger.
It allows people to activate energy to fight it. This part of our brain controls our involuntary functions such as breathing, heartbeat, dilation of blood vessels, etc. This is why we show physiological signs when we feel stressed such as increased heart rate and headache.
Our body prepares to act in order to keep us safe. The stress hormone, cortisol, is also activated and if not released by our bodies in a timely manner can cause health problems over time.
At the same time, a study of Amy. FT Arnstern National Institute of Health says that the prefrontal cortex, which serves our highest cognitive function, suffers from stress. He stays there to save energy. Our thinking DAMAGES and we may lose our ability to think clearly. So the term "I'm losing my mind" is true. It's important to know, according to Harvard, that our sympathetic nervous system, our gas pedal, and our parasympathetic or brake nervous system cannot function at the same time.
Our parasympathetic nervous system that controls our "rest and digestion" functions responds to helping us calm the post threat. It does the job of reducing our response to stress. Under normal circumstances, cortisol levels will decrease.
People with chronic stress, however, behave differently. The body produces more cortisol than it can release, and it becomes a precursor to a variety of health problems. For example, heart disease.
Counter-inducing our response to stress with our natural brake is extremely important to our overall health and well-being.
Relaxation methods activate the parasympathetic system and we can remove it more easily.
So how does it work?
One of the best ways to get back to calm is through your breathing. Dr. Herbert Benson MD in his book "Relaxing Response" describes its positive effects. He holds it as one of the best things we can do for ourselves: it is to learn deep relaxation to counter the fight flight response (ie, the "mind-boggling" process). deeply, this leads signals to our nervous system and our physiology, telling us that we are safe and everything is fine.
So how do we do this? Dr. Benson coined his 'relaxation reaction' technique over 25 years ago.
It's easy, makes you feel good, and is a quick way to reduce stress response by one minute a day.
Try it if you are going through this state and tell us if it worked :)
