When was the last time you took time off for a retreat? In today’s fast-paced world, many people are always rushing from point A to B then C and D, maintaining a horde of scheduled activities that are almost impossible to keep up with. Somehow, you manage to get things done, and you think that you are capable of handling just about anything life throws at you. Guess again! Even though you may think you are accomplishing a lot, you are too often kidding yourself. Without a visit to a health retreat Sunshine Coast center, you are likely to suffer from over-commitments – to your family, church, community, job, or finances. Often, this is at the cost of your emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and physical health.
Body’s Response to Stress
According to medical experts, continual threats to your safety and life trigger a primal physical response from your body that leaves you breathless, mind racing and heart pounding. Within your brain, chemical signals increase stress hormones in your bloodstream, priming your body to be always on the alert, and ready to escape perceived “danger.” Your concentration tends to become more focused, your reaction time is faster, as your strength, and agility increases. Whenever, the stressful situation ends, your body’s hormonal signals switch off stress response and your body returns to normal.
However, today’s fast-paced world does not allow your body to return to normal since you do not give yourself some time to recuperate from one excessive stress to the next. Instead, many people go on multi-tasking and taking on too much than is required and never truly take that time to stop and rest. The excess stress then induces high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, stroke, heart attacks, kidney diseases, malnutrition, ulcers, psychological disorders, infections, fatigue, flu, colds, smoking, and many others.
Healing the Body
So, what can you do to handle the stresses of life? Make time for a health retreat on the Sunshine Coast. Simply sit back and imagine how it would feel when you are on one. You will actually need to set some time aside and allow yourself to get away from every day distractions and demands and focus on yourself, spiritual wellbeing, and other areas of your life that need serenity and balance. Picture yourself relaxed in a natural setting that is peaceful and calm.
