On a scale of one to ten, how resilient would you say you are? Beating stress isn't about finding the miracle cure or avoiding your triggers at all other costs, it's really about learning how to react to it when it pops into your life. We are faced with stressful from all angles, but if we can change how we view what's overwhelming in the first place, we'll be mentally and physically healthier.
Resilience is about dealing with stress in a positive way, so the trick to remember is that anything can be faced and conquered. Stress will never go away, but the way you react to it can be flipped on its head.
Our bodies need sleep to repair tissue and rejuvenate our brains, so when we short change that process, we really mess up the whole system. Just like our bank accounts, we can accumulate a debt of sleep, which can have harsher results than not paying down your Visa card!
The good news is you can catch up, but spreading it out over a week, instead of ducking work to catch 10 hours over one day will net better results.
Do you know what your root chakra really is? Inside of our body are subtle pathways of energy that concentrate at nerve bundles in our body called chakras. We have seven main chakras that are each linked to certain emotions and body parts.
The root chakra is located at the base of the spine and is linked to our survival needs in the physical world such as money, our home and food.
The body parts linked to the root chakra are our bladder, spine, legs, feet and large intestine.
