You may not be able to choose all the circumstances that are currently going on in your life but, you do have a choice on how you react to them.
In any given moment, you have choice in how your respond to any situation.
What I want you to consider in your reaction is: Is this worth the impact it will have on my nervous system?
We all know that long-term stress can have negative impacts on one's health.
It can suppress your immune system, upset your digestive and reproductive systems, increase the risk of heart attack and stroke, and speed up the aging process. It can even rewire the brain, leaving you more vulnerable to anxiety, depression, and other mental health problems.
If you choose to react to a siutation with negative emotions such as anger (though not all anger is bad), rage, jealousy, envy, etc. there are also impacts on your health.
Poor emotional health can weaken your body’s immune system. This makes you more likely to get colds and other infections during emotionally difficult times.
Also, when you are feeling stressed, anxious, or upset, you may not take care of your health as well as you should. You may not feel like exercising, eating nutritious foods, or taking medicine that your doctor prescribes. You may abuse alcohol, tobacco, or other drugs.
Next time you are choosing your response, stop and ask yourself: Is this worth the impact on my nervous system?
