When Time Stands Still - The effects of stress on your body

Posted on May 07 2018

Yesterday is gone, today is here and tomorrow is right around the corner. 

Sometimes when I wake up, I am almost in shock that another month has flown by in the blink of an eye! We are often so caught up in "time", racing the clock, rushing to get everything done as quickly as possible, under the pressure of our jobs, school and just stressing alone on the "lack" of time to accomplish it all. 

Did you know that all of that can cause an increased risk of high blood pressure as well as headaches, stomach pains, poor quality of sleep? 

You can change it by stopping time, even if only for a few minutes a day with "awe" moments. Take 15 minutes a day when you feel stressed about time.

Close your eyes and take yourself to your favorite place, a special moment in the past, reflect on your favorite memories or a place maybe that you've always wanted to visit, wake up earlier and watch the sunrise on a clear morning or a sunset in the evening. 

Whatever your "awe" moment is, go there. Studies show that these brief moments of feeling that you are stopping time can lead to improving mental health, becoming more patient, keep you in the present moment and relieve stress. 

Go spend a few minutes stopping time today!
