Stress is stealing away your life, even if you don’t realize it.
Stress, fatigue and chronic pain manifest physically as increased tension and tightness in the body, particularly in the large muscles of the torso, such as the chest, shoulders and back.
This is why neck and back pain and headaches are so prevalent today.
Stress can also cause your breathing to weaken and become more shallow. When you take in less oxygen, your system doesn’t work to capacity. You feel physically fatigued and mentally foggy and fuzzy.
These reactions to stress put into motion a cascade of hormonal and neuromuscular changes that can have dire consequences for even the hardiest of us.
Your posture also changes when you’re under stress. You turn in your shoulders and hunch forward. You may notice that you cross your arms more frequently.
These are all signs of the protective impulse…. of your body collapsing in on itself in an effort to protect you physically from more abuse. Problem is, the tightness and tension in your muscles, along with the stressed, hunched posture, create huge imbalances and overloads on your spine.
The spine is the foundation of your body and one of its critical centers of energy.
Sitting, standing and walking compress the spine to varying degrees. The high proportion of time many of us spend sitting is particularly tough on our backs. After years of sitting at desks, in meetings, on the couch, or on airplanes, the spine loses its resiliency.
This in turn affects the entire nervous system, causing decreased energy, backaches, headaches, neck and shoulder tightness….even moodiness, irritability, and the inability to concentrate or focus.
So..how do you counter this postural reaction that places so much additional strain on your lower back?
The secret is to free the tension and tightness from your entire torso area, so that the breathing spaces are wide open and free and the spine is extended and lengthened.
Open breathing spaces mean full, complete breathing. In turn, this enhances your lungs’ capacity to infuse larger amounts of oxygen into your body, and more effectively remove wastes and toxins from your system. Elongating and loosening the spine helps free up vital nerve force and energy and also releases tension.
The combination of the two is a powerhouse!
It leaves you with a loose, relaxed, energized feeling. It not only invigorates you – it’s a major pathway to physical health and wellbeing.
You may think it difficult to achieve this combination of opening, freeing, and releasing.
You may think you have to pay big bucks to visit a chiropractor or massage therapist every week.
