365 DAYS OF GRATITUDE – DAY 207: Emotional Health And Your Spine

emotions

Do you believe that the state of emotional health cannot possibly have serious effects on your spine?

You might know that stress is not good for the heart and that the risk of heart disease increases with higher levels of stress hormones, but do you extend the thought beyond that?

You’ve learned from doctors and media that your digestive system can be affected by elevated stress levels, but do you connect the dots?

Stress affects everything in your body!

I will say this again: Stress affects everything!!

Your connective tissues become tighter and your posture changes dramatically when you suffer emotional distress.

I am sure you have felt yourself shrinking and falling inward when you are in distress or emotional pain; your posture changes: your chest caves, your shoulders lift and move forward and you look shorter.

Sustained stress affects your spine and its health.

Is there anything in your life that has been causing you a lot of stress for a long time? If there is, please stay open to the possibility that there is a solution. Nothing is carved in stone and you have the power to change a stress creating situation into a more aligned circumstance.

You want a healthy spine in a healthy body?

Start by acknowledging the things that create substantial stress in your life.

Love,

Rucsandra
