This year has been amazing in many ways, however, one of the most surprising findings is getting rid of stress as I didn’t do anything special. In fact, l have worked the same way as earlier, and in addition, also studied almost every weekend this year. There are a couple of things that enabled such a great unexpected change.
When studying Meta Medicine I started to learn there is a clear body-mind-emotions connection influencing in every moment. The first real insight I got when understanding that it is possible to consciously let negative feelings to go away. Or, in other words, we can decide ourselves which feelings we carry with us. Sounds quite simply, but didn’t have really thought about that earlier. After becoming aware of this I have been more sensitive to notice when any tiny feelings signalling stress are arriving to my mind and thus being able let go such negative feelings before they get piled and both my mind and body start experiencing stress symptoms.

Sure, and so what? Aren’t we all after a healthier, balanced life and happiness? Yet, only a few of us really change their lives and rest of us keep on planning what we could do but find it hard to start a change, or after a promising start we tend to go back to our old habits. How many times have you made promises to yourself by swearing “next time, next week, next month”…? Well, I have made many promises and only some small changes. I’m a strong believer in personal development and wellbeing, and have paid attention on doing more sports and eating healthier – the usual stuff. I felt my energy level in general was good though I was knackered every Friday evening after a hard working week and often accompanied with a headache which I blamed was a result from bad ergonomics that caused tight neck and shoulder muscles. That isn’t uncommon either, especially when spending the most of the week with your computer. So little I knew then!
