Find Your Om

Well, let’s just jump right in!

How do you relax your mind? When you’re so stressed out that you can’t see straight, what do you do to get yourself centered and focused and calm?  Do you do anything at all?  If you said no, you’re not alone.  In fact, you’re probably in the majority.

Did you know that constant stress can lead to diabetes? Type I, the real kind, where your pancreas actually STOPS working.  Yeah, it can happen.  Elevated levels of stress lead to elevated blood sugar levels.  Elevated blood sugar levels means that your pancreaus is working overtime to produce insulin to bring those levels down to the safe zone.  Like any other organ in your body, the pancreaus can get worn out.

Most of us are aware of what chronic stress can do to us.  So, let me tell you something you may not have already known, you’re probably stressed out right now!

So many of us are in a constant state of stress, we don’t even realize it anymore.  So let me ask another question.  How often do you simply sit still? Not when you’re going to bed, or waiting at a red light; no, those don’t count.  I want to know how often you consciously sit still.  I’ll bet it’s not very often.  There’s probably some of you who can’t even say when the last time was.
