Have you ever heard the saying, “I’d forget my head if it weren’t attached to my body? The saying behind this means that a person is disorganized, forgetful, or loses things quite often. But what if we took that saying literally? How many of us would actually even remember that the head and body are interconnected? When it comes to entrepreneurs, I’d be willing to guess that most of us forget that little fact: and most of us are paying a price we don’t even realize.
Mind and body.
The Huffington Post recently stated that Stress is the main factor in five out of the six leading causes of death — heart disease, cancer, stroke, lower respiratory disease, and accidents. An estimated 75 to 90 percent of all doctor visits are for stress–related issues. There seems to be a trend here. Illness and stress.
This is appalling! These are extremely serious numbers. Did you know that the brain is the most powerful organ in the human body? Yet, so often when one is not feeling well, the first thing we do is treat the body. We go to the doctor, take medicine, and possibly go for a massage. We do some relaxing to recuperate from colds, illness and diseases. Has it ever occurred to you to wonder that if up to 90% of illness stems from stress, where does stress come from?
Where does stress come from.
I strongly believe stress comes from one’s beliefs, thoughts, habits, and actions. Our body follows what the mind thinks. The human body couldn’t operate without the mind. Take for instance, entrepreneurs, business owners, or even professionals that sell products and services. These people’s minds are always turned on. It’s like a bicycle wheel that never stops worrying or thinking, and you wonder why there is such a thing as stress?
Obviously, this is not just about entrepreneurs or business owners, the same applies to everyone. This is a crisis. Gina knows this all too well. At 35, she was the average woman, business owner, and a hard worker. She never realized her own stress level, that is until she landed in the hospital. I bet many of you know your stressed, but you don’t really know. This was Gina and she learned the hard way that her head was sending her body a very clear message. Think of it as always putting gas in the tank of your car, but never addressing its physical needs. Eventually, somethings going to give. You can only ignore it for so long.
So, what can I do?
First, you should try to remember that your head is attached to your body. Your body is in constant communication with your head. You’re a person with feelings, emotions, and needs, but you also need to stop and listen to what your body and head are telling you. Gina’s first go-to is journaling. Our brains are so overloaded, it’s impossible for any new thoughts, learning, or knowledge to come through. We think, act, and behave based on what has worked now or in the past. You will not find the answers in the past to help with stress, instead, you’ll find them by thinking forward. This is not something we are taught in school. If you’d like to learn more, than you might consider reading Gina’s book Thinking forward is key to learning to regulate your stress and anxiety: it’s what saved her life. She believes that if we fix the mind, we’ll improve our health: that’s because it happened to her.
