With the advent of summer many of us face additional stress! Stress from the heat, visitors and so much more. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a system to help handle or eliminate stress?
Today on the show, Inez Bracy, Lifestyle Strategist, Author, Speaker and host of the show shares tips on using Essential Oils to reduce stress.
Stress is the body’s normal reaction to abnormal situations either in the outside environment or internal physical or emotional changes.
Stress is not always negative, sometimes external stressors require unusual responses and stress describes the body’s ability to make emergency changes. Scientifically a model used to describe stress includes 3 stages:
Stage 1 Alarm. When the stressor is first sensed the body will produce adrenaline (and other hormones) producing the fight-or-flight response.
Stage 2 Resistance. If the stressor continues the body tries to adapt to the stressor.
Stage 3 Exhaustion. As the body tries to adapt to the cause of the stress it may eventually not be able to cope with the demands placed on it.
The long term effects of Stage 3 can result in physical and emotional/mental disorders. Digestive system problems, ulcers, diabetes, cardiovascular problems, depression, sleeping disorders, and other emotional situations can all be related to stress. The various body systems call all be affected: Nervous System, Cardiovascular System, Endocrine System, Gastro-intestinal System, Muscular System, Reproductive System and Respiratory System.
There are many strategies out there proven to help reduce stress and increase your focus but how many of you have ever tried using the natural, involuntary action of breathing as a method to achieving that?
Join me with Heidi Thompson, a practitioner on breath awareness with over 25 years experience who will discuss how to use breathing, an action we take for granted, as a tool to alleviate stress and increase your focus.. something we need to practise daily in this environment we call - life.

What could we change in our environment to reduce our stress levels?
In this interview, Dr Alison surprises us with the things around us that affect us daily, reducing our ability to cope with stress.
Dr Alison Grimston is an inspirational holistic doctor who empowers women in business and the professions to manage their stress and their energy levels in a way that allows them to live life on their terms.
Having experienced burnout herself in 2004 as a full time doctor and business woman with two young children, she was shocked to realise how powerless she felt in supporting herself, her peers and her patients as they in turn went through the enormous levels of chronic stress that so many of us seem to accept as the norm these days.
Using her own experience combined with her talent for analysing evidence, Alison has created the Vitality System which helps business and professional women and entrepreneurs to stop burnout in its tracks.
In this interview Dr Alison reveals how your environment could be adding to your stress levels, and what in your environment you could change to make a big difference!
