Food and stress

We all have felt stress, we can feel it in our body literally from our shoulders, back, head to our stomach, stress can come from outside sources but it can also be increased in the inside. Have you ever stopped for a minute and think about how everything we eat impacts our body?

Everything we eat affect our body, from the inside out, how we look, how we feel, our energy levels, our ability to concentrate.

Our relationship with food has changed throughout the years, nowadays many of us use it as a comfort food we´ve found it to be great coping mechanism to deal with outside stress and pressure but we´re not considering that those unhealthy decisions are causing more problems. When we´re stressed out we´ll look for foods that makes us feel better and typically highly processed foods get this done, they makes us feel better by giving us a rush of feel good chemicals and then the crash comes, we want more of those foods and we end up in a negative cycle that keep us feeling stressed and can even lead to depression.

Every time we eat highly processed foods our body doesn´t know what to do with them, it is not design to digest process foods that lack nutrition and one of its responses is inflammation as a way to protect us from something harmful or toxic and our body sees those unhealthy foods as something that can be harmful for us.

Inflammation is a response of stress and even when we can experience inflammation for short periods of time nowadays we´re dealing with it for long periods of time which is chronic inflammation and chronic inflammation is related to many health problems like insulin resistance, obesity and others.

We all have suffer from digestive problems like bloating, stomach pain, cramps, heartburn and it can go to something worse like leaky gut the problem in most cases is an unhealthy diet. Most of us eat too much highly processed food every single day which doesn´t give our body the nutrients it need to function properly and they can cause more problem by putting our body in a defensive and protective mechanism.

Everything we put in our body will have an impact in our body, we all know that highly processed foods are bad for us the problem is that it´s not easy to eliminate them from our diet but we need to find ways to reduce them and even avoid them as much as possible, there are foods that will make us look and feel great and there are some foods that will make us feel bad; even whole fresh foods. Some foods can make us feel bloated or we may have stomach pain like cauliflower , some foods can cause acne like dairy in some people of peanuts.

If we want our body to respond and perform at peak we need to make sure that we´re giving it the nutrients it needs and the ones that it can use more efficiently, we need to listen to it and make it as simple as possible. We get enough stress from outside sources so we need to make sure that we don´t increase stress with what we eat.

For your next meal make a good choice, go for something cooked with fresh ingredients and see how you feel.

Does talking about our goals create stress?

Have you ever shared your goals with a friend or family member? what was your experience? did they support you or did they told you you´re crazy and you won´t make it?

From what I´ve seen the response to the questions above will vary according to how ambitious your goals are, the more ambitious you are and the bigger your goals it´s more possible that people will tell you that you will fail, if your goals are small it´s more likely that people will support you.

The problem is that when we´re working on a big goal there will be times where we doubt ourselves, we may think that maybe those people we´re right and we are not capable of achieving those big goals, this moments when we doubt ourselves we need someone who believes in us, that help us increase our confidence to get back to work and continue our journey towards our goal, the problem is when we share our goal with someone who doesn´t support us they can even want to see us fail and prove us that they were right and we were wrong. If we see them often they will ask about how we´re doing and if we had achieved that amazing goal and if we respond negatively they laugh.

Most of us are really worried about what people think and say about us and when someone says to us the famous phrase “I told you won´t make it, I told you we are not good enough, I told you you were crazy” the impact of this phrases in our brain can be lethal in a way that we can give up especially if they come from someone we trust and we felt comfortable enough to share our goal. If we want to continue pursuing our goal we may go through stress caused by the anxiety and fear that comes from setting a big goal, plus the moments when we fail and the negative comments from people we trusted.

Whit this most of us may give up feeling like failure, like not being good enough and not deserving better stuff and we can end living short to our potential, not living the way we want to live and stay in a comfort zone, we prefer to stay stuck because now we belief that we´re not good enough, that we´re not capable.

If we are strong enough mentally to keep going even after people laughed at us and the negative comments it we can work a lot harder to prove them wrong and we want to do it as fast as possible, this creates urgency and gives us total concentration on our goal and we take massive action but most of us don´t have this type of mindset and it takes time and effort to develop it but once we get it we will achieve big goals.

Another way sharing our goals can increase stress is because most of the times we share them with people we feel more comfortable and we know they´re going to support us but some of them have big expectations from us and they set the bar really high so we want to exceed those expectations so we can get anxious of not delivering, of not even meeting those expectations and that constant worry of not being good enough, of wanting to exceed expectations creates anxiety and if we´re not aware it can lead to stress.

It´s not about what people expects of us, it´s about doing our best and giving our all in everything we do, we do not need to work trying to impress someone, we do not need to focus on perfection we need to focus on progress, on learning and improving and focus on excellence, what´s the best work we can do with our abilities and skills today and how can we make it better than yesterday.

If we spend time thinking and worrying or what others say and think of us, on impressing others or trying to exceed expectations we will get anxious and stressed, we need to focus on exceeding our own expectations and impressing ourselves.

The impact of our beliefs and thoughts about stress

11 How stress is making us sick
views
41

When someone tells us that something is bad for us, that something has a negative impact in our lives and then we find a lot more people saying the same things then we believe it and with time it becomes part of our beliefs.

How many people that you know think that stress is bad for us? how many of them know what stress really is and the types?

Most of confuse pressure and anxiety with stress and this is a huge problem because if we don´t know what´s the difference and we label all of them as stress then we won´t act the best way possible.

We think that stress is bad so we avoid it at all costs, if our boss assigns us a new project we feel pressure and probably get anxious and most of us label this as stress, some of us talk with a friend and tell them how stressed out we are thanks to that project because we don´t have all the knowledge or skills, we don´t know if we will finish it on time and we still have to continue with our normal job which means that we have double work.

This is how most of us think about a situation like that but it´s not our fault, we´ve been educated to think that way but if we take that same situation and think about is a challenge and get excited by it everything changes, we can think that our boss assigned us a new project because he believes in us he knows that we will deliver the best results possible and that we are capable to finish it, he knows we can learn the skills we need and apply them to the best of our abilities even though it´s something new and he gave us enough time to learn those new skills, apply them and make the best project we can.

If we think about it as learning something new, working on something new and proving ourselves that we are capable of something big we start the project with a positive attitude which effects our entire journey through the project and the end results will be better compare to when we said to our friend that we are so stressed out because of the project and we don´t know if we´re going to finish, in this case we´re already starting with a negative attitude and setting the road to barely finish the project (if we do finish) and the result won´t be the best.

How we think about the situation we´re in has an impact on our day and the project or activity we´re working on, just by changing our thoughts and beliefs we can have a complete different result, this is why practicing positivity creates improves our life, positivity is not only thinking positive thoughts, is about making the best out of any situation, what can I learn from this? how can this help me in the future?

Our thoughts and beliefs play a big role on how we see our life and every situation we face every day, there´s a reason why positive people who always are smiling or focusing on the positive on everything seem to have better choices, better opportunities and live better, they´re simply attracting more positivity to their lives just by how they think.

So yes, stress can make us sick and even kill us as some people say if we let it, if we belief that stress is bad it will harm our body even the bad type of stress called chronic stress and if we use tools to lower this type of stress, after some time of using those tools consistently we will see improvements in how we feel and how we respond to those stressful moments in our day to day.

Stress

Change your mindset and reframe the situation

How many times have you asked yourself or try to avoid stress in your life?

I´ve done it a few times before until I decided to use it to achieve my goals, it´s the best change I´ve done because it requires to change our mindset and beliefs towards stress and it´s going against what most people thinks.

When we want to make stress works for us we first need to understand the different types of stress (which you can learn by clicking here), then we need to understand the difference between stress and pressure (you can learn about it here) because many of us tend to consider pressure as stress which is wrong and then we need to change our beliefs and mindset towards them.

Even when we have heard that stress is bad for us, it´s making us sick and it can kill us (I used to think the same) that is not true. Yes, chronic stress has a negative impact in our lives and health but not every situation is stress and not all stressful situations are actually stress, most of them are pressure.

Being under pressure is a catalyst that can lead to stress and anxiety or it can lead to a successful result. Pressure is an important part of our lives, we need it to learn, to grow, to get stronger, to gain knowledge and if we avoid it thinking it´s bad for us then we get stuck in all areas of our life. We all need to go through challenges which include discomfort, pain, struggle, fear, boredom or how most of us call them, pressure and stress. We need to have the right mindset and beliefs if we want to make the most out of pressure so here are some steps we can follow to make that shift in our mindset:

1. Realize that not all stress is bad

2. Understand the difference between stress and pressure

3. Identify stress and pressure in every situation

4. Accept that pressure is an important part of life to grow and learn

5. Realize that we can use the energy of pressure as an impulse to focus and concentrate on our project

Instead of thinking of every situation as negative or stressful and instead of thinking of the worst results or outcomes we need to reframe the situation following this steps:

1. Think of all the positive results or outcomes

2. Think of the sweaty hands and hear rate up as signs that our body is getting ready and excited to start working on the project.

If we listen or watch interviews of champions we´ll see that all of them get the same physical responses as us when they go through a competition, they feel their heart rate increasing, their palms sweating, they get anxious the difference is that they´ve learned to think about them as excitement and being anxious in a positive way to start the competition.

How we see any situation and how we react in all situations make all the difference, the hard part is that we´ve been said for so many years that stress is bad and we´ve let our body get highly stressed in a negative way that now the responses are unconscious, it takes effort and awareness every time we find ourselves under pressure to remind us to think of it as excitement and get ready to act.

Stress

The difference between stress and pressure

23 How we think about stress is how it will impact us
views

There´s a huge problem I see every day, some of us confuse pressure with stress, with get anxious, start panicking and everything goes wrong but there´s a big difference between pressure and stress.

Stress is when we are in a situation where we don´t have enough resources to meet the outcome, we may not have enough time, money, etc  and when we don´t have control of the situation the end results won´t depend completely of us.

There are so many situations that can cause us stress in a day to day basis like getting stuck in traffic, being late to a meeting, a long list of emails that we need to answer. If we feel overwhelmed and we know that we don´t have total control of a situation that´s stress.

Pressure is when we have control of the situation and the end results depends of us, of our performance, how productive, effective and efficient we are with what we have.

Pressure is that feeling when we only got one shot at any project, that we have a deadline and we have to deliver the best results possible. We are challenged to meet demands.

The reason why it is important to identify both of them is to be able to act the best way possible for each situation, we need to identify if we are in a stressful situation or if we are dealing with pressure. If we are dealing with stress the best we can do is first ask ourselves how important is that situation for us, many of us pay too much attention to what others say and think of us, we spend too much time with negative people and this create stress and we don´t need it. Sometimes we make a big deal of meaningful situations and what´s impacting us is the way we react. What we can do here is breathe, take some deep breathes and feel our body calming down.

Then ask if there´s something we can do, in many cases there´s nothing we can do so we need to change our focus, do something different and work in other stuff and just move on.

When we´re under pressure this means there´s something we need to do whether it´s making a decision or finish a project in a short period of time we need to find the best options and solutions with what we´ve got. Sometimes we don´t have the best resources of time, energy, money, knowledge but our result can impact our job or our life so we need to make the best, we need great performance, effectiveness and efficiency.

We know that stress can have a negative impact on our life and health while pressure can have a positive impact. For some of us pressure helps us stay focus and bring the best of us, taking it as a challenge to learn new skills, to improve, to get stronger is a way to get the best results while for others it can be overwhelming and can have very negative effects feeling as the highest level of stress.

Pressure can lead to anxiety, knowing that an outcome or end results depends of us and not knowing if we are going to be able to deliver on time at the level expected and how is our end result going to be taken creates fear specially if we need to learn new skills.

There are ways and tools we can use to know how to cope with each of them but as always it takes time, the best we can do now is try to avoid negative situations, negative people and negative environments, if we need to work under pressure belief that you can do it, you got everything you need to deliver a great result and even if you don´t know certain skills you can learn them and apply what you learn in your project.

Stress

How we respond to stress makes a big difference

00 Intro

We´ve all been in stressful situations and all of us respond or react differently to the same situation, how we react to it makes a huge difference on how our body process the situation and stress.

The first point that we need to talk about is our beliefs about stress, if we have a negative relationship  with it thinking that stress is harmful and it will make us sick then there are a lot more chances that we get sick, if we realize that some stress is good and is necessary and that there´s also bad stress but we can always respond to it the best way possible then the impact is different.

Changing believes is one of the hardest things to do, we need to reprogram our mind but that change is the one that´s going to give us the most amazing results. Every single day our subconscious takes control of us, most of all the activities we do are based on program and beliefs running in our subconscious.

If we install in our brain the belief that there´s good stress and it´s actually helpful the way we look at situation change and in many cases we make any situation or experience worst than it actually is by thinking on the worst case scenario, this is normal our brain always think about the worst results but we can change that by being aware of it and finding all the positive results and outlooks but this takes time.

Since we need time to change our believes and think in a positive way there are some steps we can follow whenever we find ourselves in stressful situations. The first thing we need to do is stay calm in the middle of negativity, stress, chaos, it may not be possible to walk away from it so we need to know how to calm our mind and body.

Here are some techniques you can use:

1.- Breathing techniques.- When we are in a stress full situation our heart rate increases, adrenaline increases, we are more alert. Stop for a moment and take some deep breathes to calm down, focus on your breathe and take your mind to the present moment, to this for a couple of minutes and then make decisions.

2.- Think positively.- Don´t let your mind start creating all kind of negative outcomes, instead take control of your mind and think of every positive outcome you can imagine and figure out ways to achieve those outcomes.

3.- Take time.- Do not make decisions when you are living though times, if you can take a couple of hours before you decide, in those hours meditate or do some breathing exercises, physical activity also helps.

Controlling the way we respond takes time, and we won´t be able to change it from one day to another, we need to start with small steps every day, we all get angry or annoyed even with small situations we live every single day while driving, in the supermarket, etc. When we are in any situation that stress us just stop and take a deep breath, don´t make the issue bigger than it actually is.

How stress is making us sick

One of the reasons why we´re dealing with many different health and mental problems nowadays is stress.

A very simple explanation about how stress makes us sick is this, stress is a survival mechanism, it´s the “fight-or-flight” response to keep us alive when we are in danger. When we are in a stressful situation our body releases cortisol which is the hormone that turns on the “fight-or-flight” response and with this it comes a series of reactions like heart rate goes up, our muscles get tense but while this reactions of cortisol are on, other functions of our body are turned off, so our body can´t protect us from diseases. So if we spend most of our time with stress, this means that cortisol is high along with all the reactions and some functions in our body are off most of the time and it can´t protect us from diseases so we get sick.

Some of the symptoms we can notice in a short period of time are constant headaches, our weight fluctuates, we have skin problems, our hair falls, inflammation, we feel tired almost all the time, it´s impossible to focus and finish any activity. Things can get worse and cause more problems like obesity, diabetes, cancer, depression, anxiety, suicide.

It also has a negative impact on your hormones making it harder for us to have good quality sleep and making us eat more specially unhealthy foods. High levels of stress increase cortisol which can lead to craving sweets and refined carbohydrates, this is a reason why it´s harder to avoid junk and processed food, this is why if we are following a weight loss program we can´t stick to it.

Cortisol also cause insulin resistance which means that our body is not able to utilize carbohydrates properly so our body stores them as fat instead of using them for energy. Being insulin resistant makes it harder for us to lose weight and stay lean.

Stress can also affect your mood getting us in a negative state of mind and making everything seems worst, we tend to over think, and make our worries and fears bigger because it triggers an area called the amygdala which is our brains fear center. It also makes us more emotional because our brain associate events with memories. Stress lower serotonin which is the “feel happy” neurotransmitter and dopamine which is the one for pleasure-reward so we feel sad.

Stress has become part of our days for most of us and we´ve  learnt to live with it without realizing all the damage it is causing on all aspects of life, from health to relationships. From school, job, traffic, unhealthy diets, lack of sleep, a lot of negativity all this accumulate over and over every single day causing chronic stress and it affects the body and the brain.

Trying to satisfy and please everyone also increase stress, doing something we hate and dealing with negative people and many other stuff we live every single day are also causing a lot of damage to our body and brain.

For the last years we´ve been hearing a lot more about mental health and all the negative aspects about depression, anxiety and other problems but I don´t see them taking action to improve the environments we work and the relationships with people around us which have a huge impact.

Another important reasons why stress is making us sick is because we believe that all stress is bad and it can makes us sick, that´s what we´ve been told and our brain and body will respond to that belief but it´s not true. Some stress is good and we need some of that good stress. If we change our thoughts and beliefs about stress, if we know how to identify the good stress between the bad one and we know how to respond to it, it can be beneficial.

For me it´s clear that our lifestyles are causing a lot of health and mental problems so it´s crucial to start developing good habits that help us live better.

When is stress bad?

11 How stress is making us sick
views

We´ve all been in stressful situations and some of us every day, as we saw in the last post there are different types of stress or different levels, many of us consider all types of stress bad but we actually need it stress.

We all know that stress is bad for us and it have a negative impact in our health but not all stress is bad, we need some of it to grow, to get stronger but we need to know how to identify when stress is good and when it´s bad so that we can act accordingly.

High levels of stress for long periods of time which is chronic stress is the type of stress that is bad for us. If we wake up late in the morning, we´re stuck in traffic, we get late to our job, our boss don´t like our work, our coworkers spend most time blaming and criticizing so the entire day we´re dealing with stress and it becomes cumulative this is why stress is so bad for us, we get to a point where our body can´t deal with that much stress for long periods of time and we get sick.

If we add to our daily stress that when we wake up every morning we get stressed by thinking on all the bills we need to pay, how many days we got left before the next paycheck, hope that our boss don´t fire us and we don´t even like what we do then it make sense that our health is not as best as it could be.

The points I made in the last paragraphs are some of the situations that keep our levels of stress high for long periods of time and we´ve got use to them, that is bad stress that type of stress is the one that have a negative impact on our lives and our health.

We won´t be able to eliminate stress completely from our lives but we need to learn how to cope with it, especially the one that is bad for us, some steps we can take to reduce it are:

1. Make sure to wake up early each morning and have time to do everything we need to do before going to work. Set the alarm clock 10 or 15 minutes earlier, leave everything we need ready from the night before.

2. Try to get out of the house earlier to avoid traffic

3. Don´t take any comments from anyone personal.

4. When we feel stressed during the day take 5 or 6 deeps breathes and focus on inhale and exhale.

5. Take some minutes every night before going to bed to meditate and take all the negative stuff from our mind.

Actually the best step we can take to lower stress is avoid negative people and negative environments, avoid situations that we know are going to stress us but for most of us this is impossible because we need the job so the 5 points will help. If you have the possibility to get another job where you can do what you love that´s great, the best thing that could happen to us is loving our job, loving what we do and working in a place where the relationship with our team and coworkers help us grow and learn.

Since we´re living very stressful lives and for some of us is hard to completely change our lives from one day to another we need to find ways to lower it and understand that not all stress is bad, many of us confuse pressure with stress and many of us want to avoid completely all types of stress and this is wrong, some stress is beneficial and pressure is not that bad if we don´t let it turn into stress.

The 5 principles of fitness are crucial to help us achieve any fitness goal and for overall health, stress is one of them and it has become a cause of different health problems nowadays.

There are different types of stress and we need to understand each and know how to identify it so that we can act the best way possible and learn that not all stress is bad.

There are 3 types of stress which are: Acute stress, Episodic acute stress and Chronic stress.

1. ACUTE STRESS

Have you ever ride a roller coaster or a crazy sport? That experience or feeling is acute stress, also the feeling we get the moment we get out of our comfort zone to start a new project. The deadline we need to meet for our project at school or work. That excitement, fear, anxiety, tension in your muscles are all symptoms of this stress. This one is short term and all of us experience it on a daily basis. We need this type of stress.

2. EPISODIC ACUTE STRESS

This one is when acute stress happens very frequently, people with this type of stress tend to be very negative in every aspect of life, everything that could go wrong always go wrong. They are anxious, angry, sometimes aggressive, impatience and it can be hard to deal with them, they´re always the victims of their circumstances instead of wondering why all this things happen to them.  The biggest problem with them is that they don´t realize they have a problem, they´ve learnt to make this type of stress as part of their lives so for them it´s normal.

3. CHRONIC STRESS

When stress continues for long periods of times it becomes chronic stress, it comes from constant demands of pressure every single day in school, jobs, families. this type of stress is so unhealthy that it can destroy our mind and body. When people feel so drowned in so many problems and they got to a point where they get overwhelmed and stop thinking about solutions, they just give up and surrender to stress, the biggest problem with this is that people get used to it, most of us live our lives with chronic stress and we don´t even know it´s there, we think it´s how we´re supposed to live and this type of stress is the cause of biggest health and mental problems that can end in suicide.

Now we know that stress can be really bad having a negative impact in our physical and mental health and there´s also good stress that can have a positive impact in our life if we now how to use it. The level or type of stress determines how we need to act or respond, in many cases we are able to follow tools that can help us lower it but there can be cased where we need to talk to a professional if things have gone too far.

Stress is a response to any experience and the level of it goes accordingly to the experience or situation we lived and how we are able to cope with it, we all take every situation in very different ways and they all affect us in different degrees, we need to consider this so that we know how to respond and even be prepared for any situation.

Stress

The importance of stress in our lives.

00 Intro

Last year I thought that stress is bad for us, that we need to keep it low or it will have a huge negative impact in my life and health, we´ve all heard that if we´re not aware of stress it can make us sick and it can even kill us. In the past months and year this negative mindset and belief about stress had changed for me and it´s the most impactful change I have done.

We´ve all been told that stress is bad for us but we all need some stress in our lives. Yes there is one type of stress that has a negative impact in our body and health but we need to know all types of stress and understand each of them so that we can lower as much as possible the negative one while we use the others to our advantage.

Stress is key for growth, we need stress in our lives to grow physically, mentally, emotionally. If there´s no stress will stay in the same place, the same way in the comfort zone.

If we think that all stress is bad for us and can make us sick then that´s exactly what happen, if we think that not all stress is bad or even better the most stress is good for us that it will help us grow and help u reach our potential that´s what happens, it´s a shift in our beliefs and mindset.

When we go to the gym and workout we´re putting our body through stress, we know that if we want to change our body physically we need to give it the stimulus it needs to change and with an adequate nutrition program and enough recovery our body will change. The same happens with all areas of our life, if we want to change something we need to go through challenges, struggle, failures, make different choices and all that creates stress, that´s the stimulus we need to get what we want.

It all starts by changing the way we think and our beliefs about stress, instead of thinking about it as stress, pressure or anxiety we can think of it as excitement and by that our mindset will change completely and the results will be completely different and more positive.

The biggest problem is that most of us think of being under pressure or busy like the long list of mails we need to answer and the to-do-list increasing every day or even when we´re stuck on traffic or when we´re anxious for an event as stress and they are constantly seen as something negative and this creates and bring more negativity to our lives, when we think about it as excitement it motivates us, our mind focuses on the positive outcomes, it increases confidence and it´s easier for us to take action.

I mentioned before that one type of stress is bad, we need to know how to recognize it and differentiate it from the other types of stress and we also need to recognize each emotion to act accordingly, it´s not the same to be late because of traffic than to be worried about how we´re going to pay the bills or if someone we care is having health issues or when we´ve been assigned to lead a big project.

We´re not meant to stay in a comfort zone, we´re all here for a purpose and we need to set big goals, with this comes fear of not knowing what´s going to happen, stress and pressure we need this fear, stress and pressure that comes from getting out of our comfort zone and taking risks. Those are the ones that will help us learn, grow and achieve those big goals.

If we stay where we are, if we don´t take risks and challenges then we´re not living and we´ll never know what we´re capable of. We can´t let the negative beliefs about stress and pressure stop us from living, we need to identify each type of stress and know our emotions to act the best way possible. It may be to know how to calm down so that we can think and make the best decision or reframing the situation to a more positive one.

The way we respond to any situation is what makes the difference so  with stress as for any aspect of life having a positive attitude will always brings the best results, reframing situations from negative to positive, finding ways to take the most out of any situation, thinking about excitement and the best positive outcomes from any situation is the way to start. We´ll be sharing ideas and tools we can all use in our lives that help us change the way we think about stress but we need to be open to this ideas and realize that in most cases our beliefs and the way we respond makes all the difference.
