Everyone can discover their secret energized self—if they want to. Using the LifeTools(sm) can take as little as eleven seconds, so everyone has time to experiment with them. The frameworks shared in this series are based on timeless wisdom and the latest medical, neuro-linguistic, and psychoneuroimmunology research.
Many people are exhausted, but they don’t have to be. In this quantum-paced world, do you sometimes feel overwhelmed and under the power curve? Do you feel that life is moving much faster than you are? Do you think you get sick more often, or stay sick longer, because you are “stressed out”? You are probably right. Stress affects our energy and our health in many ways. And the effects of stress can be profound and expensive. The rampant rate of autoimmune disease in this country and others is one outstanding result of the prevalence of stress. Allergies, skin irritations, fibromyalgia, fatigue, and chronic fatigue syndrome can all result from adrenal depletion and autoimmune dysfunction. Increased anger and violence in the workplace and elsewhere can also be related to unresolved stress.
In the days of cave dwellers, we needed fear to help us speed up and run away from dangers such as large predator animals. We needed anger to help us breathe deeply and feel powerful enough to run toward an enemy and fight. Warrior cultures in every age have practiced gearing up this attack chemistry so as to be brave, strong, and effective. War dances cause endocrine chemistry to flow freely, and artful war cries activate more hormone production. The aerobic exercise of running after enemies or fighting hand-to-hand burns off extra hormones and other stress chemistry.
In today’s society, we are often overstimulated, responsible for too much, financially pressed, frustrated, and exhausted. Most often, we express and resolve any conflicts through words. This leaves us with a lot of unresolved stress chemistry running through our metabolisms and stored in our tissues. Thus, individuals may have stored anger chemistry from one interaction and then may appear to overreact to the next situation that “makes them angry.” This has happened enough in the U.S. Postal Service that we have a modern expression, “going postal”. The phrase means “losing control and becoming violent,” often in response to a small stimulus. This is due to stored stress. And now we have mass shootings in schools and malls. Are you surprised?
In the U.S., health factors like high blood pressure, migraine headaches, and weight gain are at record levels. Many people have stress-caused neuromuscular pain and chiropractic issues caused by muscles in spasm. People spend billions of dollars every year on remedies for pain and exhaustion, yet most are still wondering where their energy went.
If people want to handle stress more effectively, they now can literally trade it in for energy.
The good news is that now there are answers to these issues. If people want to handle stress more effectively, they now can literally trade it in for energy. There has never been a more complete toolkit available. Global knowledge of health care, personal self-maintenance, and issue management has now begun to merge. We now can take the best of all the international well-being toolkits and translate these many techniques into easy-to-use tools for everyone who wants them. East has met West, and meditation has met medicine. Many of these tools are included in this series as LifeTools.
So many people have been tired on a continuing basis for so long that they now think this level of fatigue may just be normal. They think it may just be something that comes with aging. Their real potential energy level is unrevealed. It is a secret to them!
But imagine: what if your body-mind-heart-spirit system could feel strong, energetic, renewed, and enthusiastic? What if you felt optimistic, happy, and excited about new opportunities in life? What if you were meant to live this way? As you will learn in this series, happiness, excitement, and energy lead to more production of body compounds that lead to…happiness, excitement, and energy! Imagine how energized and young you can feel and how deep your in-joy-meant(sm) can be.
