Further research has shown that we can both repair the damage done by past stress and defend ourselves against the effects of future stress – we do this through the “4 Building Blocks of Stress Defence”
Building Block 1 – Meditation
Doing meditation at different times of the day (with a technique designed to activate your Relaxation Engine), will give you different benefits:
- with meditation to start the day, you will feel refreshed and focused, throughout the day; and to help relieve the symptoms of tiredness that we all feel during the afternoon;
- using meditation to wind down at the end of a stressful day, ensures that you will sleep better and feel more rested to start the next day.
Building Block 2 – Exercise
In addition to the physical benefits that exercise provides, exercise is proven to reduce the stress we feel and to burn off the high levels of cortisol in our body.
Building Block 3 – Nutrition
Eating the wrong foods, can actually increase our levels of stress, or impact the effect that stress has on our bodies, while we actually reduce our levels of stress, and prevent future stress, by eating a healthier, more balanced diet.
Building Block 4 – Sleep
Sleep helps our body and mind recover for the next day, and helps our brain to function properly.
Better sleep improves our physical health, and helps us with weight problems and diabetes and also helps our immune system to keep us healthy.
