You won’t cope well with much if your TOLERANCE levels are low. They are low when you are sick, tired, hungry, too hot or cold, uncomfortable or in pain, thirsty (a big one we don’t often think of – dehydration mimics/creates the body’s stress response. If your mouth feels dry you are already severely dehydrated), or struggling with negative emotions.
To help you deal with daily stress better, look at the basics – are you sleeping well, eating/drinking healthily, moving (exercising), getting some fresh/air and sunshine and so on.
We all KNOW the drill – but how often do we DO it.
Why are we surprised then when we don’t handle our day as well as we would like?
