Are You Really Too Bless to Be Stressed?


Are You Really Too Blessed to Be Stressed?

We've all heard or possibly have used the phrase "I'm too blessed to be stressed". While it may be a catchy expression that most christians love to declare, I'd like to take a moment to share some hard facts and numbers about stress.

What is stress?
According to dictionary.com, stress is defined as a state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances. 

In a roundabout way the definition of stress seems to be the way most people in society live on a day to day basis. More than 40% of Americans say they feel more stressed than they did 5 years ago, according to data from the American Institute of stress. The data also show that only 36.8% managers and 29% business owners feel satisfied with their work-life balance. Stress is the basic cause of human illness and disease, and failure to achieve this balance can fuel consistently high stress levels. Therefore, controlling stress triggers is critical to maintaining overall health. Stroke and heart disease are the leading causes of death in women in the United States. 

The exact causes of high blood pressure and strokes are not known, but several things may play a role, including:
  • Smoking.
  • Being overweight or obese.
  • Lack of physical activity.
  • Too much salt in the diet.
  • Too much alcohol consumption (more than 1 to 2 drinks per day)
  • Stress.
  • Older age.
  • Genetics.
I can relate to having firsthand experience of living a lifestyle filled with stress. I recall long days, standing and working 13 hours a day back to back, as well as being mentally and spiritually exhausted. I was on the path to hypertension and emotional bankruptcy. This went on for years, needless to say that it has taken time and dedication to transform and reclaim the victory of peace that God blessed me with from the genesis of time.  I got serious about my green goddess lifestyle change about six years ago. At that time, I realized that I had to completely renew my mindset about my health and wellness if I truly desired to live my best life, which is what led me to become a Certified Holistic Health Coach and  Master Energy Therapist.  I'm dedicated to helping you to do the same, which is the reason I designed Synergy Therapy: Master Your Moods and Emotions class series.  In this class series, I'll teach you how to shift gears and get on the path to becoming the master of your moods and emotions, instead of allowing yourself to be a slave to them. 





The world and society we live in is complex and chaotic enough; having peace of mind and peace in our spirit should be the last thing we must worry about.


So, Are you really too blessed to be stressed? I sure hope so!
