Our Thoughts

Written By: Craig Dunkleberger

Eighty percent of our thoughts are negative ones you see.
We need to engage with some of these thoughts & let some be.
With practice, you can turn these negative thoughts around,
by using positive self talk and optimisim that you have found.

You can choose to be pessimistic and find the worst in things,
or you can find hope and gratitude in the things your life brings.
If you think you aren’t good enough, you won’t do anything right.
You will think every candle is  a stick of dynamite ready to ignite.


Stress and Your Body

Written By: Craig Dunkleberger

When you feel stressed your brain springs into action,

Making it not function at full capacity, just at a fraction.

It pumps cortisol throughout your body causing you harm,

Changing your ability to remember, causing some alarm.

Chronic stress can also make your hair start to fall out.

Stress can get out of control, making you want to shout.

The hair can regrow once you get your stress under control.

It is easy to see that chronic stress can take a heavy toll.

When you are stressed your muscles start to get really tight.

It is a reflexive reaction as your body gears up for a fight.

Chronic stress cause your muscles to be tight and very sore.

Making your back, shoulders, and neck worse than before.

Any stressful situation can make your heart to beat really fast,

and it raises your blood pressure as time has gone past.

You need to breathe into a paper bag to get breathing back on track.

Then, your hypothalamus sends messages to your pituitary gland.

and the amount of epinephrine and cortisol suddenly expand.

Then your liver produces glucose to prepare you to fight or flight.

But this makes your blood sugar level too high, and not quite right.

Your stomach and gut responds and reacts to stress hormones too.

It causes you heart burn, neusea, and acid reflux to name just a few.

If your stress is bad you can develop ulcers throughout your body.

You can also have diarrhea, or have problems going to the potty.

Cortisol and oil production starts to increase and is suddenly renewed.

This causes acne, eczema and for your skin to become very red,

and you need to calm yourself down before this starts to spread.

and you will quickly see yourself and your health at its very best.

Then, try listening to some funny jokes to take away your frown.
