Stress is a part of everyday life. It is our body’s mechanism for responding to threatening situations. Stress helps us to protect ourselves in the face of danger. In fact, stress can be really helpful in emergencies which is why eradicating it is not practical. The problem arises when stress becomes chronic and debilitating. When stress becomes overwhelming to the point of causing insomnia and panic attacks, is when we really need to take a step back and look at how our lifestyle has been contributing to it and question what we can do to manage it better. The goal is not to eliminate but to manage productively.
The eastern healing science of Ayurveda provides us with the appropriate tools to cope with stress without getting consumed by it. Even though Ayurveda is thousands of years old, the framework for healing and progressing that it teaches is applicable even in today’s day and age. Following the principles of Ayurveda will allow you to go about your day feeling more empowered and prepared for the challenges ahead.
