If you’ve wanted to say “Uncle” at any point in the last two years, you are not alone and honestly, who could blame you? It’s been a lot. And then it has been a lot more! Not only have we had repeated stressors one after another - and big ones too like a pandemic, warring countries, racial and political tension and a looming recession - but there has also been ongoing uncertainty and overwhelm hanging over us like a big, gray storm cloud.

 

The stressors keep coming and we have had no time to recover before the next blow, it’s no wonder we are seeing more anxiety, depression, insomnia, digestive issues and a host of inflammatory issues and of course our female hormones are caught in this crossfire as well. In this episode I talk about why we need to prioritize and literally run to our self-care practices, shore up any stresses we can and find ways to recover from this ongoing stress. I also share some lesser known options for your stress response beyond the common fight or flight such as the Challenge Response and Tend and Befriend. We have choices and we have more power than it seems.

I’m just gonna come right out and say it: I stink at accepting help from others. I also know, I’m not alone in that! It can bring up feelings of guilt that we can’t do it all ourselves, an uncomfortable sense of “I don’t deserve help” or “I don’t want to put anyone out” or even “I don’t want to owe anyone anything".

However, when we don’t accept help from others we are furthering our mistrust that we can be cared for by others safely and we are denying those that love us the chance to boost their oxytocin and give to us. It’s good for our self-compassion, self-love and connections to others to be helped so I dedicated some time to talking about why it may be hard for you and how to change your outlook on it for healing and getting some help when you need it!
