Commitments and duties acquired.

Something that also has serious consequences on your health and well-being.
And those around you.
But don't worry because it is possible achieve it.
Once and for all and forever.
Do you know how?
Stress: who is this old companion?
Stress is broadly speaking a response from our brain to cope with the demands of the outside world.
A sample of our evolution as a species and thanks to which we have been able to reach our days.
It is this response of our brain that protected us from the dangers we were facing.
Struggles between equals.
And all kinds of threats of which our brain learned three strategies of survival: fight, flight or paralysis.
So we can say that managing stress was not necessary for our ancestors.
After all, that response has helped us to evolve and survive.
Today, we don't need run away from predators or to cope with major disasters that threaten our survival.
However, stress produces the same reaction in us that it does in prehistoric times.
And not necessarily because of external events.
Also for how you take these events or by thoughts that produce the same reaction as if a lion was chasing you 10,000 years ago.
This means that, if you don't do anything to manage stress, your brain is activating almost continuously those mechanisms that used to save your life.
But now for a simple traffic discussion, your problems at work or anything to which you attach undue importance.
Your perception of it.
And this is where the key lies.
