There are many ways to achieve good stress control, although many of them involve conscious breathing and a mind open and willing to address this issue. Some of them include:

• Relaxation therapies: Yoga, mindfulness, or guided meditation are some of the most effective techniques for stress control. They help you relax, reduce muscle tension, and improve emotional well-being.

• Personalized assessment and guidance: Your specific situation is assessed to provide you with tools and strategies to overcome stress in your daily life.

• Emotional support: The integrative center Nur Garriga offers emotional support through coaching sessions, Ayurvedic psychology, and other therapies, with the goal of helping you address the emotional factors that may be contributing to stress.

• Integrative activities: We offer classes, sessions, workshops, or support groups that promote emotional well-being and teach stress control techniques. Good practices that can help you with stress control include regular exercise, a balanced diet, and dedicating time to self-care, among many others.

What are the fight or flight hormones and how do they relate to stress control?

The “fight or flight” stress hormones are a physiological response of the body to a perceived threatening or stressful situation. This response is designed to help us confront or escape from risky or dangerous situations.

The two main hormones involved in the “fight or flight” response are adrenaline (epinephrine) and cortisol. When we face a stressful situation, the adrenal glands, located above the kidneys, release adrenaline into the bloodstream.

This hormone prepares the body for immediate action by increasing heart rate, blood pressure, and respiratory capacity. It also causes dilation of the pupils and redirects blood flow to the muscles to prepare us for fighting or fleeing.

On the other hand, cortisol is another hormone released as part of the “fight or flight” response, which increases gradually after the release of adrenaline and helps maintain energy and concentration during stressful situations. T

his physiological response is a primitive reaction that has helped us survive in dangerous situations throughout our evolution. However, in the modern world, stressful situations can be more varied and prolonged, which can have negative consequences on health if not managed properly. Good stress management will help you find the balance you need to feel relieved and discover your inner peace.
