How Do You Do Self-Care?

Research links unrecognized and unmanaged stress as the cause of 47% of symptoms leading to chronic physical and mental conditions. It weakens immunity and cognitive performance, disturbs sleep, disrupts gastrointestinal, cardiac, neurologic, muscular and hormonal balance, raises inflammation, and increases negativity, disease and morbidity. The number one reason for traffic accidents is due to inattention from stress and tiredness. Life can tremendously overload our minds and bodily systems. 

Compensating behaviors cause elevated levels of obesity, overwork, chronic sleep disturbance, dependence on alcohol, vaping, cigarettes, marijuana, nonprescription CBD and prescription pain killers, and alarming rises in illness, anxiety, violence or suicide cases. But there is a better way. Learning to recognize and remove feelings of stress or imbalance is the basis of personalized yoga therapy programs of stress management practices for the mind and body.

 Participants in clinical studies who learn practices that physiologically and mentally reduce stress cut their symptoms and health risks by more than 50% and had the longest-lasting and highest rates of pain relief when they practiced yoga for their specific needs. Why not make 2019 the best year to date? Put yourself on your schedule. If you’ve already learned a few healthy rituals, keep going and learn more. A toolbag is better than one tool.
