The Stress Volcano
Experts believe that the stress of modern life, coupled with the prevalence of chronic conditions, have contributed to a rise in the cases of chronic stress and depression in the UAE.
The types of drug addiction have also become more and more complicated, with new types of drug surfacing. As always, the problems often begin among the youth aged 16 to 25 years. This has largely been driven by Relationship Conflicts, social pressures and the fast pace of life in the region. In day-to-day life, we are living in stress and even our breathing has become sub-optimal, a clear physiological sign of stress.
So let us understand what exactly is stress.
There are 2 parts of the Autonomous Nervous System:
SYMPATHETIC AND PARASYMPATHETIC NERVOUS SYSTEM.
There’s always an arm-wrestling match between the two. The sympathetic nervous system is vigilant and wants to accelerate your heart rate, always looking for emergencies to keep you safe. The parasympathetic system is exactly the opposite, it wants to calm you down and decrease your pulse rate. It has all the energy to activate your immune system and detoxify your body.
Our Unconscious Mind is 88-90% of our brain which stores all the beliefs, traumas, experiences and memories that shape our thoughts and day to day life. The programs at an unconscious level for Anxiety/Stress are an overwhelming worry, fear of future, fear of the unknown, threat/danger, fear of being helpless and powerless. The job of the conscious mind is to create a defence mechanism of Stress so that one is not able to access and experience the issues stored in the unconscious mind and avoid the trauma altogether.
The real solution to resolve the stress is to heal the experiences and fears from the source of the issue through Karma Yoga Healing.
