Thoughts on “Wellness Approach to Stress”

  • This DVD came about because we have thought for many years (as we are recovering from chronic stress overload), that this topic is so needed in our society.  The level of stress that we accept as normal is actually crushingly high and leading to degenerative states in our bodies.  We are in desperate need of redefining what it means to be well!

 

  • This DVD (“Wellness Approach to Stress“) is power packed with information.  It is information dense.  You may want to only watch one segment at a time so that you can absorb the information and concepts – and make decisions about how you can change your lifestyle to maximize your wellness!

 

  • The more I think about Peter’s approach using the Four Essentials for Life, the more I appreciate it.  He provides a framework for approaching any situation affecting our health – in this case, the situation is stress and how to alleviate it’s affects in our lives.  From watching the DVD, I was able to affect my personal experience of stress positively and easily (read my blog post Stressed?).

 

  • Peter discusses ways we are actually creating stress in our lives through our daily choices.  Usually, this comes from things we think are helping us actually decrease our stress.  Argh! Self-sabotage!  Rather than helping ourselves, we end up hurting ourselves. (Thankfully, he does provide alternatives.)

 

  • Peter also discusses simple interventions that can help alleviate underlying stressors.  I was going to say “easy interventions,” but since behavior modification is seldom easy for us, I’ll stick with simple.  We just need to do them, realizing that by doing these simple things we can have PROFOUND positive impact on our lives over time.  And, I’ve found that when the underlying stressors have been lessened or are gone, the daily stressors that crop up on me don’t overwhelm me!

 

  • Unexpectedly, we have recommended the DVD to people just for the Food section.  People often ask us how to go about changing their diets to support their health.  This DVD is an excellent resource for the basics.  These are the first steps!

 

  • Peter gave a similar presentation while speaking in Australia. :)
