EMS STRESS AND THE POWER OF NOW!!!

The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual EnlightenmentHey there.  How's it going?  How's life?  Is it good?  Or is it great?  I truly hope that it is absolutely, positively great for you!!!

Unfortunately, chances are, if you are reading this blog, life may not be great for you. 

EMS Stress is very powerful and can cause a lot of emotional distress as well as physical fatigue and illnesses.

I know this because there isn't a day that goes by that I do not talk to someone in the Emergency field who has some kind of emotional distress or illness. 

The most common emotional distress I see is anger, anxiety, depression, guilt, irritability (one of the biggest), and, believe it or not, insecurity.

The most common physical illnesses I see are back aches, dizziness, fatigue, gastrointestinal problems (one of the biggest), headaches, heart palpitations, hypertension, irregular heart rate, and neck aches.

If you are experiencing stress, which you probably are if you are reading this blog, one of the greatest things you can do is learn how to quiet your mind and enjoy your moments.

Recently, I read the book THE POWER OF NOW,  and it truly helped me enhance my ability to quiet my mind and increase the joy in my moments. 

People who are in the Emergency Field experience things that make us question what life is all about.  We experience things that are not normal to the average person.  Death, dying, destruction, and being responsible for other people's lives, literally, can truly eff with your mind.

The mind is so cunning that when we experience things that are out of the ordinary, it attempts to protect us, when actually it can hurt us.  When the mind is under a lot of stress it races, and although we don't notice the thoughts because they are fleeting, they can be flashbacks or fear created by a past event or anticipated ones.

One of the best ways to notice these fleeting thoughts that are racing through your mind is through meditation, which will quiet the mind. 

THE POWER OF NOW, is a great book that can also help you with the process of quieting your mind.  This may sound silly or may not make sense to you, but I know that this does help.  I have seen it happen with individuals, who are often in a crisis, make complete changes in their lives, for the better of course, after learning to quiet their mind.

Many people are very resistant to meditation, which is the greatest skill a person can have, so books are a healthy alternative.

Click on the picture of the book above and purchase it from Amazon, they have excellent prices.

There are so many people in the Emergency Field that speak their stress in their conversations and they don't even know it.  They talk about a call they had, over and over again, or they talk about how things don't affect them and yet their life is in complete disarray.  Believe me, if you are repeating a call you had, over and over again, or your life is in complete disarray, emotionally, mentally, or physically, you have enormous amounts of stress which is usually caused by or causing a racing mind.

But please, don't believe me, try it for yourself.  Try learning to quiet your mind and be in the now, which means to NOT be in the future or the past with your mind and just watch how you become more focused with extreme joy in your life and watch how you make explosive jumps in your personal and professional life.

Try it, and see, I dare you.

Have a fantabulous week, and don't forget to have fun and be playful.
