Learning about your stressors and the cues that you body gives you that you are becoming stressed is an essential part of a healthy life. Recognizing these cues will help you to determine what you will and will not accept into your life. Are you able to recognize when you are becoming stressed?
Do you experience the onset of a headache?
Do your muscles begin to ache?
Do you feel tension in your neck? Your shoulders? Your back?
Does your mind shut down?
Do you become fidgety?
Do you start to feel anxiety rising up inside?
Do you become impatient and intolerant?
The next time that you are in a stressful situation, stop for a moment and assess how your body is responding as well as your feelings, actions and mannerisms. Take heed and make adjustments for a healthier, more balanced life.
