The term peak performance implies optimal heath—a balanced state of wellness. But how do you know that your health is optimal?
Do you consider yourself to be a “workaholic”?
Do you enjoy high-intensity physical training but are fatigued easily?
Is stress a major component of your life?
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you may need more than simply a multi-vitamin for optimal health.
We all know that chronic stress can take a toll on our bodies. However, the body is not able to discern well between physical or emotional stress. Thus, they both affect our bodies similarly.
When the mind reacts to stress or perceives something as a threat, parasympathetic processes in the body shut down. The parasympathetic nervous system, often called the “rest and digest” nervous system, is the only way we recover and repair physically and mentally from stress.
If we are under chronic stress, we never fully give our bodies enough time to repair.
But what if you simply cannot remove stressors from your life at this time?
Then you’re going to need:
- Adrenal gland support
- Quality sleep at night
- Cognitive reframing of stress
At least these 3 concepts are needed for optimal health in high-performance lifestyles. Think of it this way—you must adapt your body to stress and make it your friend.
Remember: Stress isn’t necessarily bad, but a strong reaction to stress is.
