3 Simple Ways to Eliminate Stress

We both know that STRESS is the worst, truly the worst. I mean nothing is worse and it really can hurt all over. 

The physical symptoms of stress can be:

  • Incredibly low or lagging energy.

  • Headaches that seem to come out of nowhere and last forever.

  • Upset stomach, including diarrhea, constipation, and nausea.

  • All kinds of Aches, pains,

  • Some people have chest pain, or your heartbeat so fast you think it might explode.

  • You Cannot sleep and simply toss and turn until it is time to go back to work exhausted.

  • You always seem to be fighting colds and infections.

  • Perhaps one of the worst thing is you lose sexual desire and/or ability.

Just writing this article and looking at all those symptoms is STRESSING ME OUT because most people do not know how to create relief for their stress. How to manage it or completely get rid of it. As a matter of fact many stressed out people cannot even understand that other people in the world might not have any stress at all.

I have some great news, really incredible and if you know where stress comes from you will agree with me and make the shift immediately. Here is how the cleveland clinic defines What Stress Is: 

“Stress is the body’s reaction to any change that requires an adjustment or response. The body reacts to these changes with physical, mental, and emotional responses. Stress is a normal part of life. You can experience stress from your environment, your body, and your thoughts. Even positive life changes such as a promotion, a mortgage, or the birth of a child produce stress.”

Yes you read that right there are also EMOTIONAL SIGNS of stress:

Emotional symptoms:

  • You can have Depression or just be unhappy without knowing WHY.

  • A consistent experience of anxiety or you are easily agitated.

  • Do you find a consistent moodiness, you are irritable, maybe angry.

  • Many people experience feeling overwhelmed.

  • When you are stressed you might have bouts of loneliness and isolation.

Well I have three things that can easily and quickly help you manage your stress. As we are reading entrepreneur.com we found them discussing the importance of detoxing for WORK and PRODUCTIVITY. Here is what they said:

“According to United Recovery Project’s article, “How to Detoxify Your Liver and Kidneys” they share that, “When a drinker drinks repeatedly or excessively, the liver goes into overdrive and spends all of its energy on getting the toxic alcohol out of the body.” Therefore, your body has less energy for the other toxins that are building up in your system.”

Secret number one: SO want to get rid of some stress on your body, simply detox. It sounds simple but a healthy detox every 3-6 months will help your body feel and perform better. This means for the people that are taking the “Journey 66” Cleanse and detox that within those 66 days they will commit to limiting or eliminating alcohol and sugar 3 times for 7-9 days each time. Although that does not seem like a lot it will make a world of difference on your body and that means less stress.

Secret number two: You guessed it if we are talking detox for the reduction of stress we are talking about cleansing to help relieve stress. Nothing is as important to getting your body and your mind clear. A cleanse will help you sleep better, better sleep less stress, better sleep more focus. When you are more focused you are more productive, hence better performance. When you perform better you are more confident and confidence is KING. 

Secret number three and the last part of this article: Obviously “Journey 66” is a system for detoxing and cleansing. We refer to this as “The Practice”. In the “Practice’ we share the importance of movement and the third secret is simply this WALKING. Not running not exhausting excersize but a simple 30 minutes in morning 30 minutes in the evening will reduce your stress levels exponentially. The act of walking and moving is a key way to engage lymphatic drainage, get rid of excess calories and circulate blood, create oxygen I mean the list goes on and on and on. Now if you are inclined to walk and listen to your favorite soothing music, dance while you walk, smile while you walk, be happy that you are walking and the stress will melt away… yes walking will change your life.
