Adapt to changing pressures


Stress lands in the body, and can take over the brain

The world is changing rapidly, and what we consider “normal” in our everyday lives is changing with it. With all the uncertainty, people are tense and quicker to lose their cool.

You may notice all this stress landing in your body. Maybe your headaches are worse these days, or emotions hit you out of nowhere and your stomach hurts.

Here’s what’s happening: Your instinctive or survival brain has taken over your body and your higher, thinking brain.

Your lower brain is preparing your body to protect you. Chemicals are flowing, blood is pumping, nerves are firing. Your muscles are ready for action.

Only you can’t move. You freeze and your brain goes offline. No wonder you can’t think clearly, or remember anything, or even speak.

Everyone has their own version of this scenario. Physical problems need physical solutions. Shayna can help you find the right solutions for you, through workplace training, coaching, or counselling.
