Reducing Stress – Does It Really Help Relieve Digestive Issues

From my experience, ABSOLUTELY! I’ve had a big problem with reflux for awhile now, but once I started finding ways simple and easy ways to reduce stress and anxiety, my symptoms started going down! It is not to say that I have not gone to the doctors, because I have and it has helped guide me in the right direction. Going to the doctors and also learning about the Parasympathetic and Sympathetic Nervous Systems has helped me so much. (It can also help you, if you let it)

Learning about the Sympathetic Nervous System (fight or flight) and Parasympathetic (rest and digest) and how if you are always I “fight or flight” mode that you can’t “rest and digest.” It makes sense that I had, and still currently have, digestive issues. That is because all the stress I wasn’t controlling up until recently has had long term effects on my digestive system. I wouldn’t expect quick fixes, only small changes now with BIG changes in the future!

The few things that I have tried, and continue to fine tune, that have had the biggest impact on my stress,anxiety, and digestive issues are: daily meditation ( 15 mins in the morning, 15 minutes in the evening), working on the most important and daunting task first, and having a gratitude practice. I’ve done a lot of trial and error and have found that those are the best for me, but I may find other ways that are better. It’s up to you to find out what works best for you! My vision for this blog is that it will introduce millennials (or anyone who may need it) ways they can reduce their anxiety,stress, and digestive issues at home!
