In today’s world, being stressed out is almost worn as a badge of honor. People are overbooked, overwhelmed, and just plain exhausted! Stress is bombarding us from every angle imaginable, affecting us physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and energetically. It’s taking its toll on our health! In fact, estimates show that stress is at the root of 80–90% of all diseases. This fact alone should be a strong motivator to reduce, re-lease, and manage our stressors.
Think of stress as the layers of an onion, made up of physical stressors. Some of these include dehydration, poor nutrition, lack of movement and sunlight, poor sleep, and exposure to toxins and radiation. Then there are the mental, emotional, and spiritual layers. These include financial strain, traumatic events, toxic relationships, family stress, work or school issues, and loneliness. We also carry stress from subconscious baggage programmed into our system through traumatic events in our past—even in the lives of our ancestors. Feeling spiritually confused or disconnected can create stress and inner conflict.
