Why is Resilience so important?
We are living in a stormy world right now that produces challenges, stress and anxiety for most of us. Just look at these areas and you may or may not be experiencing them all but you can agree, the storm exists.
Nutrition – poor diets & bad gut health effect our brains and how our body functions. Yet most of us are addicted in some way or another to processed and fast foods.
Environmental – toxins in our food & in our air, electromagnetic fields causing disruptions to our systems, plastic derivates (now even being found in fish and tea bags 🤢)
Family – both parents normally work, rising divorce rates, family dynamics have shifted, communication styles and coping mechanisms are sometimes not being taught at home
Culturally – media, social media, and being told what is good/bad or right/wrong by the WRONG people. It’s hard to navigate such misinformation
Lifestyle Rhythms – or lack of rhythm as the case may be for most, chaos rules, organization and routine are a thing of the past. This is heart breaking as it’s routine that gives the mind calm & certainty
Stress from Trauma – wars, shootings, kidnappings, natural disasters all reported on the 24-hour news channels and reposted everywhere on social media. Media has a reason to keep us on edge. We buy more when we’re stressed
Relational Issues – increasing lack of social engagement with REAL people has lead to awkward social behaviour, lack of manners and respect, and a pulling away from the connection we all need
And we are seeing this storm show its many faces in our lives, whether it’s anxiety disorders, OCD, separation anxiety, panic attacks, PTSD, phobias, performance anxiety and inflammation or depression, chronic illness or pain, sleep disorders, anger, ADHD or spectrum disorders. The pain is real. It could be physical or mental but the pain from the battering of the storm is definitely real.
What do we need?
First, we need to have a clear understanding that stress is a key initiator and mediator of chronic and acute health problems, psychological breakdowns, connection and emotional issues as well as energy depletions.
Second, we need to have an easy to use, engaging way to prepare for, recover from and adapt in the face of stress, challenge and adversity. We need to be able to self-regulate and act for our long-term interest consistent with our deepest values.
Third, we need to practice these techniques on a regular basis so that we can shift our baseline depleted state to that of a RESILIENT state.
And how can we do this?
HeartMath™ has done all the hard work for us. They have an evidence-based system of techniques that have been documented in over 300 peer-reviewed, published research studies. Their best-in-class programs are used by the US Navy, Fortune 500 companies world-wide as well as hospital systems, first responders, and professional athletes. HeartMath™ also has the technology to measure whether or not we are being affective in our practice or if we are just fooling ourselves. The best thing is that if you’re stressed, you cannot lie to the technology. It doesn’t believe you when you say, “everything is fine.” And it will tell you when everything isn’t fine even when you don’t feel “stressed.”
All we need to do is to learn these easy-to-use system of techniques and then apply them to our lives.
