How do books & downloads relieve my stress?

[divider style=”shadow”][frame align=”right”][/frame]
When you are under stress, your autonomic nervous system thinks you are being threatened and turns on the stress response. This is the mechanism that helps you get out of dangerous situations. Some people refer to it as being in “fight or flight” mode.

Hormones like adrenaline and cortisol rush through the body. The heart beat, breathing rate, and blood pressure increases. Blood and energy is diverted away from things like digestion and the immune system to places like muscles which may need extra energy to escape danger. This response is designed to be short-lived, only on for a few minutes at a time.

The problem is that most of the time we are stressed, our bodies are not in physical danger but the stress response turns on anyway, disrupting the body’s normal processes and causing havoc with our health. Depending on the nature of the stress, this “fight or flight” response can be turned on not just for a few minutes, but for hours or days at a time.

Chronic stress response contributes to many health problems like, headaches, weight gain, heart disease, cancer, back pain, fibromyalgia, depression, irritability, infertility, and insomnia just to name a few. People who are “stressed” are more likely to die from all causes including injuries and accidents.

There are two critical times to stop or reverse the stress response.
1. You can manage stress with cognitive or thinking skills before it begins.
2. You can turn off or reverse the stress response if you find you are already stressed.

The items in this store are designed to help you with those two critical times to manage your stress.

The book “The World is Not a Stressful Place” teaches the cognitive or thinking skills you need to keep the stress response from turning on in the first place. It explains the stress response, how it affects you, techniques to deal with stressors, relaxation therapies, and ways to manage the stress you do feel.

The relaxation exercises, which can be downloaded to an iPod, iPad, phone, mp3 player, or your computer, are perfect for helping you turn off the stress response when it has already started.  By listening to the short exercises, your body will return to homeostasis, a more relaxed state, where it functions perfectly for you.

The music used in these exercises is especially chosen to help move your brain wave activity from beta brainwave activity to alpha and other lower levels of brainwave activity. This is the place where you will get the optimum amount of relaxation and restorative rest in a short period of time.

Once downloaded, you can listen to these exercises whenever you need to. Think about listening to them before a big test, while you are in the dentist office, after a tough day at work, before an athletic competition, after a worrying encounter with a friend, before a presentation, during your lunch break, after driving in traffic, or any time you want to get relaxed, increase your focus, perform and feel better.

If you know someone else who is “stressed,” the book or relaxation downloads make great gifts to help others improve their health, their happiness, and their quality of life.

  • I love the exercises on the Stress Relief CD. Meditation, yoga, and the Autogenics were my favorites. This is a great way to learn about stress management if you can’t take the class.
