“Stress is not just what happens to us, it’s how we process it” ~Dr. Gabor Mate
I’ve learned a ton over the past decade about the effects of stress on the body, and it pleases me greatly to share ideas I’ve learned for overcoming these problems.
Today’s focus is Dr. Gabor Mate’s video conference, based on his book, ‘When the Body Says No.’
From his video synopsis:
Stress is ubiquitous these days — it plays a role in the workplace, in the home, and virtually everywhere that people interact. It can take a heavy toll on individuals unless it is recognized and managed effectively and insightfully. This is even more true for parents, family members and caregivers of individuals with neuro-behavioural disorders such as FASD, and if left unchecked, accumulated stress goes on to undermine immunity, disrupts the body’s physiological milieu and can prepare the ground for a multitude chronic diseases and conditions.
This presentation, adapted for this conference, is based on When The Body Says No, a best-selling book that has been translated into more than twelve languages on five continents.
It’s insightful and extremely helpful. I would elaborate on it, but you really need to just watch it.
