Sometimes we are so busy, and get so used to living with stress, that we don’t know how to identify it. Have a look through the list above – if you identify with 5 or more, then perhaps it is time to seek some help. Stress can be very debilitating but you don’t have to remain stuck in stress mode! Help is at hand at Cammish Wellness.

Stress is something that we all experience from time to time. Stress is an inbuilt response in our body to what the body perceives as a threat. Our reaction or response to stress over long periods can have a direct impact on our health and wellbeing. Our stress load (amount of stress we’re under) over a long period can affect our hormones, our moods, our appetite, our weight and our relationships. Sometimes, it becomes so overwhelming that it affects our ability to cope with any amount of stress and therefore can have an impact on your life in many negative ways.

I love helping clients to reduce stress because it fills me with great joy to see the dark, heavy, clouds lifted from them, to help them find their sparkle again and to start embracing life again. There are countless benefits to seeking professional help to reduce stress.

What are the benefits of reducing stress?

1. Less worrying, anxiety and tension
2. Your muscles and your body learn how to relax, therefore less pain
3. Better sleep
4. More focused
5. Time management improves – more time to do what you love best
6. Ability to prioritise tasks into what’s important versus what is a distraction
7. A heightened awareness of what triggers you to become stressed
8. More headspace, clearer head to think
9. Clarity of mind
10. Your breathing relaxes = relaxed body = healthy functioning body
11. Increased sense of happiness
12. More energy
13. A sense of peace, calm and relaxation
14. Your body is not in survival mode & will therefore digest food easier
