Stress And CBD
Background Music Here. STOP ME.
The stress we have often goes unnoticed until it is too late and the symptoms have progressed too far. You will have fallen flat on your face with the flu or some other illness before you ease back.
Our bodies cannot live in this state all the time and it tries to protect us by giving us some signals to slow down. We tend to ignore these signals and press on. The main reasons we usually press on are for the job responsibilities and cash flow. Tieing into these two issues would be society’s view if you took time off because you were feeling stressed. We care too much about everyone else and what they think of us. We don’t think much of our own well-being until it is too late.
There are many symptoms in stress as there are in Anxiety and although they may seem similar they are unique in their own right. If you see these symptoms of stress in yourself or others you should get on top of them straight away as they often start with one or two and then more slowly creep in.
Stress Is Fine
Whether you are working or not it can be hard to place your health as a priority. No matter how good your intentions may be we all tend to place this to one side. We tend to be more sympathetic to others who are unwell then we are about ourselves. If someone was to say they are stressed out, this comment often isn’t taken seriously as stress is deemed not to be a major issue. This remains constant until something happens that forces us to re-evaluate our life.
Your Stress Levels
We are more aware of stress and how it impacts our health and the lives of the people around us. We know how to lower the stress but we often feel we are and will be ok. Many of us practice some mindfulness routines but these tend to be after the fact. It should be stated that all these methods used to help with stress are merely aids. Unless you get to the direct source of the stress and deal with it you will continue to get stressed. The symptoms will get worse over time and more from the list will be added.
This in itself can be a challenge as very often we cannot get rid of these stressors overnight and they take time and need to be worked on. This is why the aids can help you until you can remove the source or learn to deal with it better.
Your job is the main source of stress in our lives and it can be very difficult to remove these issues. I am of the opinion, there is always a way and if it is important you will find a way or you will find the excuse. A job truly is just that and we should learn to leave the work issues at work when we leave it. If you have a job that is your passion then chances are stress is not a real issue and you are dealing with other issues such as burnout.
Many of us feel we have to make the best of a bad situation and we are forced to stay in the role we choose when we were 20s. It is crazy that we still do this as we now understand that the brain is not fully developed until we are in our mid-twenties and we are living for longer too. Society places this pressure on us to pick a path at an age where we are very vulnerable and we don’t really know what we want.
This path defines the next 50 years of our lives and why we are forced to make it at such an age is something we should look at seriously. If someone notices they are not happy and tries to change their path at a later stage they are often looked at as being odd or weird and the financial aspect is often thrown at them and this leads to a very unhappy person in the future.
A Slave To Stress
Are you a slave to your life and to stress. I know that more than likely you are. There are very few of us out there that understand and can regonise the when they are stressed out. Even fewer still understand how this has effects our health so much and how to fix this state. When we break a leg we go to to the doctor and then we get an x ray to show the where the break it and how to treat the leg. We then get a cast and we stay of the leg and possibly stay at home and take time off work.
If you went to the doctor and he said you were stressed out too much and you need to relax more, you would think less of this. You wouldn’t get examined by anyone else. You certainly wouldn’t take the time off work or relax and do some mindfulness routines. If it was suggested you try something like CBD for stress, many may think it is a snake oil despite all the evidence that shows how CBD interacts with your body.
Others around you would think it was a bit funny if you took the time off work and started to look after your mental health and stress levels. I know from first hand that this is the case. One of the reasons why this is the case is due to the fact that you cant see the stress and the damage. With a broken leg, the evidence is staring you in the face for you and all to see. With Stress, the evidence is there but it is often in the mind and how our interactions and moods are.
When the symptoms develop into something serious it is often something very serious like cancer or a heart attack. Then you start to care and then others around you start to care. Why wait to get to this stage. Start looking after yourself now. Watch this video to help explain it a bit more.
