Have you ever gotten a panicked phone call from a friend or from your child?
I was at the airport picking up my oldest son when my phone vibrates with a text, then it rings.
It is my 16 year old, new driver son… hysterical.
“Mom, the car broke down and I don’t know what to do!”
“Slow down, buddy. Breathe. Are you safe?”
“Yes, I pulled over to the side of the road.”
“OK. Where are you?” He tells me, and it is about 5-6 miles from home.
“What are you so upset about?”
“That I’m going to be stuck here!”
This is the brain stressed out… it goes to worst case scenario and cannot problem solve.
In this situation, the worst case scenario, he walks home.
When our brain gets the “danger” signal, and we get caught in the “fight or flight” survival spin, the rational brain shuts down. Instead of being able to problem solve and tap into what we know and what we remember, the brain gets stuck in the “danger,” emotional, doom and gloom catastrophic thinking loop. This is what I call a ‘stress spin.’
Now, stress and what we determine to be “danger” or a threat is based on the individual’s perception, our stress resiliency, our emotions and our past experiences. So what we perceive to be stressful, what throws us into a stress spin really is different for all of us.
Maybe you are an anxious person and automatically go to “worst case scenario” thinking, like my son.
Maybe you have had numerous challenges back to back and you are feeling vulnerable and exhausted. Famous stress researcher, Han’s Selye, found that repeated stressful events with little to no recovery time can create “exhaustion” as the body’s adaptation response can no longer recover. It gets depleted.
Or, maybe you do not feel safe and secure within yourself, or with your ability to handle whatever life throws your way. This is what I see a lot. This, and a combination of all of the above.
Are you ready for some good news?
You can learn to calm or reset the nervous system, or the “stress response” Here. You can learn to get your brain OUT of the “stress spin”, even stop it from starting. Then, you can take back control of your rational mind.
I teach people a simple, three step process to take back control of their mind, body and connect with their truth.
This is all part of my Stress S.O.S online course. This is an introductory course I created for people who seem to be stuck in that “stress spin” and worst case scenario thinking. Before you can access the higher brain function, access the magical messages and inner wisdom within you, you have to be able to calm the mind and body.
It is incredible how transforming this 3 step system can be. It can help you:
🦋 Become less reactive, more responsive
🦋 Access your rational mind and problem solve
🦋 Be more thoughtful, less emotional
🦋 Improve focus and organization
🦋 Find more joy in your relationships and experiences
🦋 Tap into your intuition or “gut feeling”, what you know to be true.
🦋 Begin to see the big picture of situations versus tunnel vision
You will be able to take back control of
✔️one action at a time.
You have the power inside you to do this, you just need to learn some tools and techniques, practice them and know when to pull them out… when you need a little Stress S.O.S.
