2.2 How to Avoid Chronic Stress mind.life.me.

    • Self-Improvement

In this episode, Dr. Emily Amos discusses the concept of closing the stress cycle and the importance of intentional rest.
We'll talk about:

How our stress response mimics the cardiac cycle and how periods of rest are crucial for our overall well-being.
How our bodies respond to stress and how to work with this process rather than against it.
What to do when we recognise when we have overcommitted ourselves.
How to manage the discomfort that can arise during periods of rest and the importance of self-compassion.
Most importantly, how to help yourself to 'close off' your stress cycle and allow your body to rest.


Next episode we'll explore the 'window of tolerance' and how to increase our ability to respond to and recover from stress.

My short course ⁠⁠Mindful Me⁠⁠ is designed to help you to master mindfulness & better manage stress in an easily accessible, online format, available 24/7 with fantastic video lessons, a beautiful course workbook and plenty of guided meditations to help build your practice.
