Keeping your thyroid health at its best includes a lot of stress management.
DO YOU STRESS YOURSELF OUT?
As a stress expert, I’m always aware of how people “do it to themselves.” We worry, fret, dispair, get angry and scared, and usually over the most unimportant things and/or things we can’t change anyway.
The most important thing you (a thyroid sufferer) need to realize is that your personal stressing is increasing your risk of creating more thyroid dysfunction.
A 2011 report from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development found that “stress has become the most common reason for a worker being signed off long-term sick.” The “21st century equivalent of the Black Death” they said.
I’ve heard reports on the news this year saying that “by the year 2015 stress will be the #2 debilitating illness, next to heart disease.” Really? That’s only a few years away! Actually, it’s NOW.
The joke is on us of course! We can take control over stress in our lives, but we don’t.
TAKE CHARGE TODAY
“The components of anxiety, stress, fear, and anger
do not exist independently of you in the world.
They simply do not exist in the physical world,
even though we talk about them as if they do.”
~ Wayne Dyer
Today, begin deciding to stop the craziness that you call “my life” and choose to take charge of your inner and outer life that feels out of control.
Take a breath.
Take a break.
Take a walk.
You’re the only one who can lighten your load and change your attitude about what is happening, or, change what is happening.
Make a decision.
Make a plan.
Take the action on the plan.
Your adrenal system is compromised enough with a thyroid condition. Decide what you can do about a situation that is stressing you and do it, change it, right away.
Don’t procrastinate. Break free of crazy-making situations, people, places and things; habits and routines that are not healthy or calming, enhancing or good for your best life.
Hasn’t your thyroid condition stolen enough of your life already?
Get your life back more quickly each day by becoming aware of distracting and chaos-creating thoughts, activities, beliefs and relationships. Push the big “delete” key in your mind and remove it. Let it go. Your health and life are important and you matter.
“If you ask what is the single most important
key to longevity, I would have to say it is avoiding worry,
stress and tension. And if you didn’t ask me,
I’d still have to say it.”
~ George Burns
