To follow on from my previous post about how we are drowning in adrenaline... "We lives in an adrenaline-based culture, with adrenaline-inducing toxins in our environment.. adrenaline is our mainstay to cope with the changing times." - Anthony William.
But at what cost?! It goes beyond brain burnout. Adrenaline is meant to protect us from acute, short-term damages, but when we rely on it long-term it becomes a source of damage to us. Too much is toxic and corrosive and consequences to the central nervous system and other nerve tissue are particularly bad. More than any other toxin out there, adrenaline, in the amounts that we're mainlining it these days, is taking us down!
To combat this and assist my body to balance its hormones, I'm off to get an ayurvedic massage today, after some yoga. But if you don't have access to this sort of thing, there are numerous small ways to honour your bodies needs and rest, recuperate, and generally slow down.
I'd love you to have a think about some stress management or reduction techniques that you could implement in your life to help calm your nervous system and bring about a bit more true relaxation.
Are there any self care practices that you do regularly to help with these rising stress levels? I could reel off a bunch that I'm sure you've all heard before, but I'd rather to hear from you about your routines and what works for you. Xx
