EFT can help you relieve stress by changing your perception to that stressor,
It helps by dealing with the emotions that overwhelmed your capacity to cope .
we are facing stress increasingly with time ,despite all the improvements humans are making to facilitate our daily need and make life easier. so what are we missing, what do we need to feel fulfilled and enjoy life?
What is stress
stress as defined by Canadian researcher hans Selye as “the non specific response of the body to any demand for change “
stress comes to make challenges in life for our spiritual growth ,to add colours to our experiences and then should be relieved with the gaining of our fulfilling results .But when we cant relieve it ,and don't accept the change we feel stressed .
EFT tapping can help here and before entering the stage of stress by releasing the emotions that limit our acceptance and capacity to change .
physical changes during stress
there is a highly organised system in our body that works for us during the time we face a need for change(stress), to allow us overcome the situation successfully .
It is the autonomic nervous system that receives the alert signal from your emotions, that you are in danger and need to fight or flight, it increases your heart rate to support the blood supply ,increases the blood sugar to supply the muscular system with energy ,these are done through releasing the stress hormone .
The two phases of physical changes
First phase of the cycle of stress management strategy in our body is to increase stress hormone secretion . Next in the plan is the relaxing phase when you relieve your stress .you supposed to overcome the stress situation and relax to let your system take your feedback and simulate the maintenance phase in your body .
Why we feel stressed
The reason is, that our body doesn't receive the information that we are fine and relaxed but you are still in stress condition of feeling angry , afraid or anxious .
Change is one of the characteristics of life,our problem can’t be solved by changing life . It is our perception and how we react to the stress that we need to change . Some people live in chronic stress with its health complications and consequences, while others under the same experience get to their higher level in relationships ,job or finance .
Our emotions rule our life . Feeling of guilt , self doubt , fear of rejection and “I am not good enough”, all of these feelings put the mind and the body under chronic stress and life becomes a burden .
