The conversation around stress within our society has increased in recent years. Although we are talking about it more, are we managing our stress better or are we just talking about doing it and not implementing tools?
Stress impacts our health in many areas. Physically we can experience irritability, mood swings, poor sleep, weight changes, anxiety, depression, headaches, digestive issues, fatigue, and muscle tension.
Stress management can look different to each person – one person’s relaxing activity may be stressful to another. Having a list of things that you know will help you manage stress is beneficial as sometimes in times of high stress we become tunnel visioned and forget what to do.
One way of managing stress is somatically. Somatic is just a fancy word for the body, so finding different therapies that bring us back to our body is beneficial.
Stress is created in our head and lives in our body. Getting out of our head, reconnecting and grounding our body can be helpful.
Reflexology is a form of Somatic healing. It is a gentle treatment that helps move our stressed-out bodies and brains from a stressed flight or fight response to a relaxed and repair state.
Reflexology sessions every 2 weeks or monthly can be a great addition to your stress management plan.
