The Methods I Use To Beat Stress When Dealing With Ulcerative Colitis & Crohn’s Disease
*Full Video Below*
There are a number of ways that I manage stress and toxic thoughts for myself and my clients when I am dealing with ulcerative colitis & Crohn’s disease. I’ve described a few of them below:
Get crystal clear on what ACTUALLY matters to you in your life, and what you DO control.
These need to be combined; things that ACTUALLY matter and that you DO control.
This can be challenging and often takes some soul-searching, plenty of scribbling, and plenty of alone-time. But it’s worth it.
Once you have your list, focus on these elements and take comfort in knowing that you are doing what you can in the areas of your life that you have control over.
Hold yourself accountable to these things.
Whether you are trying to heal naturally from ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease, or whether you are trying to do ANYTHING, holding yourself accountable can be the hardest part.
I’ve found that the best way of ensuring that I remember to act on plans I have made, is to have cues in my environment that remind me of my plans. For example, sticky notes on the fridge, photo frames around the house and in the office, alarms on my phone, calendar reminders etc.
Without cues in your immediate environment, it is incredibly easy to become complacent and before you know it you are back to square one.
Find a way of managing stress and toxic thoughts when they arise.
I’ve described my method of doing this in the video below. The short version is that I handle my stress and toxic thoughts with EMPATHY. Fighting stress is stressful! Approaching your stress and toxic thoughts with empathy and appreciation of their value changes everything.
Watch my video below where I go over my exact method of doing this in detail.
This is one of the best practical tips I can give you, and I know you’ve heard it before… but it’s so important for anyone wanting to heal ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease naturally.
Meditation activates your parasympathetic nervous system and reduces the amount of cortisol and adrenaline flowing through your body, and primes your body for healing.
Meditation will help you to become an observer of your thoughts, and make you more able to see toxic thoughts when they arise so that you can manage them before they spiral out of control.
One of the biggest benefits of meditation for me has been its impact on my breathing. I now breathe in a calmer and more steady way throughout the day, which helps me to deal with the curve balls that life can throw at me.
