Did you know that stress is the #1 underlying cause for the 6 major causes of death in the U.S.?
This isn't new information...
Yet, it still continues to be a part of our culture to be busy to the point of burn out, push ourselves, and continue striving to, in the end, get the life we "want."
However, what if with all of this pressure and feeling of never being enough or having enough, we realize that stress wins and we are left with physical (and sometimes fatal) issues? Was it worth it?
That being said, it doesn't have to be this way.
We can be efficient, productive, high functioning and balanced.
It all comes down to our perception of our lives, our thoughts, and how we choose to react to situations.
For me, stress hits home. It's personal. Growing up, I was that kid who was continually worried. Due to a series of life events I had when I was younger, (more about that in future posts), my brain began to be wired in a way that my stress centers (amygdala) were over active. I easily went into worry or panic mode (fight or flight). Sometimes things would trigger my brain into fight or flee mode, my heart would race, and I would have a tough time calming down.
During these times, my parents would help me calm down and take deep breaths, but sometimes that is not enough to get to the root cause of the issue. These are brain signals we are talking about.
Connections between neurons that when they fire together, wire together.
That means that when you have those persistent thoughts, the thoughts actually come more automatically the next time around.
That is why we focus so much in our company on the importance of your thoughts and what you tell yourself repeatedly- because it impacts your body on a physical level.
My mom, being the extremely intelligent psychologist that she was, was always ahead of her time. No matter the topic, she was ahead of the curve and got the ball rolling with her family and her clients on the next hot topic before anyone else was talking about it.
My mom had HeartMath products even when I was in middle school (2000-2004 - a long time ago). It seemed odd at first, that technology could actually help us calm down, but it works. HeartMath technology helps to improve coherence in how our heart is beating. When we are in coherence, our body comes out of stress, worry, and panic and into a place of mindfulness and ease. When we get into those stressful fight or flight scenarios, our heart rate goes into low coherence- it's all over the place.
This is why during stressful times we cannot think well. When we are stressed, our blood in our brain goes away from the prefrontal cortex where we do our immediate planning, decision making, and emotional regulation. Have you ever been indecisive during a stressful event? This is why.
Our heart speaks directly to our brain, so this is why it's so important to have our heart in high coherence. Studies have shown that with the use of this technology it decreases anxiety, depression, and worry. By training our heart and brains we are directly impacting our physical health as well as our mental health. How amazing is that?
Because stress, and the mind-body connection are core pieces of this company, I am very passionate about sharing this healthy and drug free way to positively impact our health.
