Calling 911: Acknowledging the Signs of Stress will Save Your Life

Signs of stress are literally all around us. You may not recognize them though, because they start off very subtle and they grow in magnitude.

There is always a breaking point - a straw that breaks the camel's back so to speak.

People would walk into my office all the time and say: "I don't know what happened, I just woke up and couldn't move. Why Doc? I didn't do anything."

Here is where I'd try to call them on their bluff: "What do you mean you didn't do anything...have you been keeping up with your morning stretches? What about your vitamins and that diet we talked about? Have you been drinking enough water and communicating with your boss/spouse/children about how you are feeling?"

Invariably the answer would be "No, I haven't done any of those things, but what does that have to do with my hip pain?"


The critical thing to understand about the signs of stress is this:

Stress is an accumulation of abuses.

That means that in order to get a handle on your stresses, you will have to do some mathematical juggling. You will have to tip the scales in your favour. And for every negative stress, you need to counter it with at least one positive stress.

If you fail to do this, you will end up facing that 911 call eventually.

Let me say that again so it sinks in, because this is serious stuff...

If you fail to do this, you will end up facing that 911 call eventually.

Some Early Stage Signs of Stress:

  • Intermittent fatigue
  • Sleep disruption
  • Brain Fog
  • Emotional Exhaustion
  • Shallow Breathing
  • Low Energy
  • Lack of Patience

Some Intermediate Stage Signs of Stress:

  • Mild Depression
  • Venting Anger
  • Anxiety
  • Fat Stomach
  • Other signs of weight gain
  • Frequent Colds
  • Loss of Heart Intelligence
  • Toxic Relationships

Some Late Stage Signs of Stress:

Whatever the end result, unchecked stress will not allow you to live your life to your fullest potential. And for me, this is worse than death.

Living in a state of chronic stress is means that you are living in survival mode. From this place, there is no sense of relief - it is simply an endless cycle, a downward spiral.

The goal then is to break the cycle before it is too late, or before one of the signs of stress above becomes critical enough that it forces your hand. Believe me, you don't want to hear the sirens of 911 on your front porch.

It requires a process of reprogramming the mind so that you can begin living on purpose.

Up until now, if you have been living in stress mode, you may have never experienced the joys of being healthy. That is ok, but it is time to make the choice for something different.

Let this website and my years of knowledge and experience guide you to reclaiming your life. Know that it is your birthright to be happy.

Stop Surviving and Start Thriving!
