As you know, health and wellness covers all aspects of our life. Our emotional, mental, and spiritual health are just as important as our physical health if not preceding our physical health. Why? Emotions are reactions to a stimulus that cause a response in our body due of chemical change (emotion) from the trigger.
Example: someone cuts you off (stimulus) you get angry (response) your face gets hot and you feel irritated in your body (reaction). Make sense?
All emotions produce chemical reactions in the body. Being happy produces dopamine, epinephrine, and oxytocin which are the feel good hormones or chemical messengers in our body that reduce stress and well, help us feel good!!
Anger triggers the release of cortisol and adrenaline which stimulates our flight or flight response making us feel anxious, alert and well…stressed! If you remember from last weeks blog, cortisol is a stress hormone that causes inflammation, keeps us alert and tells...
Challenges cause confrontation.
Confrontation leaves us vulnerable.
Vulnerability is hard.
Vulnerability requires strength.
But with strength, there is courage.
With courage comes action.
Action creates wisdom.
Wisdom to know when to fight, or release.
Trust the process, always think.
Relinquish or keep.
Know yourself, weep.
Feel the emotions, they run deep.
Piercing the core with an orgasmic encore.
The sultry chemicals of emotion take over the body.
Learn the tools, regulate.
Heal the holes that weigh your down.
Feel your roots, feel the ground.
You are the universe.
Look all around.
Great one, lead the way.
Your greatness is yours.
In whatever fashion you adorn.
Need not be scared.
You’re more than prepared.
You’ve built your character. `
Your bones are integrity.
Your heart is compassion.
Your muscles are grit.
Breathe in the magic.
Breathe baby breathe.
The longing and the awe.
