HOW YOU FEEL
How you feel is not conditioned by life's external circumstances, but by your choices, how you interpret events, the pictures in your head and the words you use.
The FIGHT or FLIGHT alarm in us is designed to switch on, get us out of danger and switch off. When this malfunctions it can make us feel worried all the time, we call this anxiety.
Work stress? Money worries? Difficulty sleeping? Everyone gets stressed, which can actually be good for you, depending on how you perceive it. If stress overwhelms you, it can have serious health impacts.
When we suffer from illnesses part of the battle in recovering can be in getting the mind not to worry, allowing the body to relax, repair and recover.
