In the 1950’s a noted researcher named Hans Selye popularized the term stress for the first time. Selye said: “Everyone knows what stress is, but in reality nobody knows.” Today, however, we are learning more about the underlying mechanics of stress as science helps to unravel the mysteries of emotions.
Our accelerated lifestyle has contributed to a mindset that living with daily irritations, anger, frustration, low-grade anxiety, and hopeless feelings is normal. After all, many people you know feel this way. A recent survey conducted by the National Consumers League shows that adults are considerably more stressed now than they were five years ago or even one year ago.
At Life Track Counseling, I am passionate about helping my clients create more joy and better emotional health. The “mind-body connection” affects all aspects of life— relationships, positive thinking, and a sense of well-being and accomplishment. Even under difficult circumstances, a healthy mind and body enable better coping skills and generate more optimistic viewpoints.
Counseling can help someone discover the root of what prevents healthy habits from being part of day-to-day life. Often the pain from previous or current life events is the cause. A pattern of negative “self-talk” leads to low self-esteem. A psychotherapist can help the healing process begin and offer hope and tools to change the unhealthy cycle of behavior. Healing while establishing new patterns and thought processes allows for long-term change and better emotional health.
