“Stress is the health epidemic of the 21st century”World Health Organization
Why is it that an overwhelming majority of doctor visits are due to stress (75-90%) and yet most of us are never taught how to manage the stressors in our lives? When stress becomes chronic it can manifest into high-functioning anxiety and stress-induced depression. These are not clinical levels of disease; rather, a reaction to today’s modern world.
Anxiety is a normal reaction to stress and can serve us in challenging situations. Anxiety raises a “red flag” that something is wrong. It alerts us to dangers and helps us prepare to mobilize to safety. When this early warning system remains on high alert throughout the day we have a problem that affects our health, happiness, and well-being.
High-functioning anxiety is not a clinical condition, yet it’s exhausting and impacts your health and well-being. Anxiety is your body’s natural response to prolonged exposure to unmanaged stress. When you always feel like the other shoe is about to drop, your anxiety can be triggered.
What can we learn about stress and anxiety from Wisdom traditions that practiced Ancient Rituals? New paradigms in healing high-functioning anxiety will involve more than talk therapy, the body has to get into the healing act and Ancient Ritual practices do just that!
Ancient Rituals presented in this book can help alleviate stress and high-functioning anxiety.
