Chiropractic and Stress
Life is full of ups and downs that are stressful. Even good events such as marriage, the birth of a child, buying a home, family reunions, vacations, and many other joyful activities register quite high on the stress meter – as high in stress as when really bad things happen.
The difference is whether you hold on to your physical and emotional stress or you let your stress go once the event is over. If you had a bad event (getting fired, losing a big game, a bad relationship) it’s totally understandable that you experienced a lot of stress.
But if you always carry around the hurt (stress) then it’s chronic stress and that ultimately wears you down.
If only the good feelings, the happy events, the exciting times stayed! But we’re not supposed to be high all the time, that too would be draining! We’re not meant to be on highs and lows all the time.
