About you

We’ve all experienced moments when our hearts come alive – where things seemed in sync, we were in the flow, our actions and intentions matched. We were productive and efficient and felt fulfilled. Often these moments are rare and random, something we strive for, somewhere out there. We can intentionally increase these moments if we first understand what gets in the way – stress.

Stress is the pressure, strain, or sense of inner turmoil we feel when we have to cope with more than we can comfortably handle. Stress, triggered by our perceptions of and reactions to life’s events and situations, causes a measurable physiological cascade of nervous system, hormonal and chemical reactions that affect performance as well as health and well-being.

Do any of the following apply to you?

  • Irritability. Is your fuse shorter than it used to be? Do you find yourself getting angry at little things more often?
  • Loss of sense of humour. Do you find yourself feeling weighed down or too serious? Do you laugh less than you used to? Do you feel depressed or resigned to life not changing?
  • Worry. Do you find yourself caught in distressing thought loops, replaying anxious emotional experiences or worrying about the future?
  • Excessiveness. Do you eat, drink, or use more mood-altering stimulants excessively? Do you rely on stress to keep you going?
  • Forgetfulness. Do you find yourself forgetting little things more often? Do you feel a kind of mental gridlock?
  • Aches and pains. Do you have recurring headaches, frequent gastrointestinal distress, or tension in your face, jaw, shoulders, back or chest?
  • Nervousness. Do you talk fast or excessively, or stutter? Do you spill things frequently, feel uncoordinated, have more nervous tension, have a nervous tics or other nervous symptoms?
  • Fatigue. Do you feel run-down a lot? Are you tired but unable to really get a really restful sleep? Do you have a hard time falling asleep or wake up early in the morning and have trouble falling back to sleep?
  • Illness. Have you been sick with allergies, colds, or flu more often? Or do you have a chronic problem your doctor has told you is stress related because no pill or other remedy has helped?

If you answered yes to three or more of the above questions, then you are experiencing some degree of chronic stress. Training can help you with stress, pain, anger, anxiety, managing your weight, relationships, heart diseases, burn-out, allowing you to improve your immune system, develop your intuition and sleep better.
