Stress is an Earthquake - By Andrée Boisvert

Posted on March 7, 2018 at 2:50 PM

The amount of stress we endure on a daily basis in today’s busy world is at record levels. And there is a tendency to spend the majority of our time in overload. Stress also has a way of sneaking up on us. Take the analogy of an earthquake. Imagine a tall concrete building sustaining an earthquake at 8.0 on the Richter scale. The building would most likely sustain severe damage and collapse. What about a small 2.0 earthquake on that same building? The tremor barely noticeable, may not cause any visible damage to a building, except for some small fractures in the foundational structure.

What if those 2.0 earthquakes continued every day, going undetected? The building would be taking small ‘hits’ all the time, and maintaining its resistance. There is a cumulative effect going on here. By all outward appearances, the building looks intact and normal, but inside, these small tremors have been causing tiny cracks in the foundation and walls. At one unpredictable moment, the next 2.0 quake will happen and the building will no longer be able to withstand the strain - some part of it will break down or collapse. This will appear as a surprise because there were no remarkable signs that the structure had been compromised.

This is how stress can affect us humans. Whether it takes you down in one sudden powerful moment, or chips away at you slowly over time, the end result is the same – your body is compromised, and you experience pain, develop illness or dis-ease, or simply collapse, so often without warning. We must recognize the cumulative effect of repeated stress and stop the low-grade damage from happening. Be proactive and find ways to relax and restore your body. Check-in with yourself often, and make sure you get enough ‘ME’ time. Don’t let the effects of the 'stress' earthquake have a chance to impact YOU!
