A Boiling Pot = A Stress Lesson
Invariably, I end up with a mess around the element from the roiling soup.
I realised that I could accomplish the same thing and bring the soup stock to a boil, simply by choosing a lower temperature.
How much energy are you using to get through your day? Is it efficient, or are you burning and boiling at a higher temperature than necessary and making a mess of things?
There are two branches of the Autonomic Nervous System. The Sympathetic Nervous System is like a stove with the burner on maximum heat. Whereas, the Parasympathetic Nervous System is an element that is turned off. We function best when there is a balance between the two.
Initially, many people are in "overheat". Like that pot of bubbling broth, the Sympathetic Nervous System is on "High". Gogogogogo - until then they boil over or burn out - the nervous system becomes worn out, and the scene is set for ill-health.
Learn to lower your "temperature" and achieve more with less energy.
