Are you a woman who is struggling with overwhelm which is causing you a lot of stress?
You have so much to do and too little time?
You are trying to juggle home, work and family and you have no time for yourself?
Do you find that:
- Your ‘to do’ list is getting on top of you and seems endless
- You can’t think straight anymore
- Are constantly tired
- Don’t sleep well
- Experience anxiety, sudden outbursts of anger etc.
- Suffer from headaches or period pains
- Comfort eat
Modern life is full of frustrations, deadlines and so many demands on our time. For some women, stress is so commonplace it has become a way of life. Stress isn’t always bad though. When stress is within your comfort zone it can help you perform better, motivate you to do your best, and even keep you safe when there is danger.
However, when stress becomes overwhelming, it can totally damage your health, mood, relationships and how you function. It can result in you being much less productive, less resourceful and less able to deal with everything in your life. You can protect yourself by understanding how your body’s stress response works, recognizing the signs and symptoms of stress overload and taking steps to reduce its harmful effects.
Factors which affect your stress tolerance are:
Your support network – social interaction is important and a strong group of supportive friends and family help in dealing with life’s stresses.
Exercise – Your physical and mental health are strongly linked so it is important to take care of your body. It is important to exercise regularly (around 30 minutes on most days) and this can lift your mood and help relieve stress, anxiety, anger and frustration. It can also act as a distraction from your worries and give you ‘me’ time.
Your diet – the food you eat has an important effect on your mood and how well you cope with life’s stresses. Eating a diet full of processed and convenience food, refined carbohydrates and sugary snacks can worsen the symptoms of stress. On the other hand, eating a diet rich in fresh fruit and vegetables, high-quality protein and healthy fats, especially omega-3 fatty acids, can help you cope much better with life’s ups and downs.
Confidence – It is easier to keep on top of stress if you have confidence in yourself and your ability to cope with events and life’s challenges.
Attitude and outlook – optimistic people are often able to cope with stressful situations. They tend to embrace challenges and accept change as part of life.
Ability to deal with your emotions – you need to learn how to balance your emotions. This will help you bounce back from adversity and is important to everyone at any age.

My name is Lauren Rosenberg and I am an EFT Therapist. I can help you get your life back on track, not by pushing yourself harder and harder but by taking time to pause, breathe and reset your mind, body and spirit.
When you learn the power of EFT Tapping everything will change and sometimes in magical ways.
If you feel like you don’t have the time to stop, breathe, tap and meditate then you’re probably the one that will benefit MOST!!
It’s called a tapping meditation because it’s a powerful combination of two life changing processes, EFT Tapping, which works with the meridians of the body and the amygdala in the brain to quiet the stress response, to reset the body, mind and spirit, and the ancient and time-tested practice of meditation.
