“I AM HAPPY. I AM HEALTHY. I AM WHOLE.”
Losing a job, going through a career-existential crisis, or even if you’ve made the conscious decision to make a career change on your own terms are all BIG LIFE CHANGES.
In any type of life change, it is important to be aware of the effects these changes may have on your health and wellness.
BIG life changes, especially if they are unexpected like a job loss, can bring on an overwhelming amount of stress. It may feel like the world is turning upside down on you and when you’re in it, you might not be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel. But, it’s there. Believe me, it is there.
Today, Dr. Phil Carson, a registered Pharmacist and practitioner in alternative, holistic medicines and therapies, joins the show to share his story about the stress he experienced through losing his job, starting a business, losing that business, the growing debt that came with it, and how he was able to deal with all of it with high spirits.
Dr. Phil Carson continues to encourage living a healthy and balanced life during times of stress. He teaches people in these times of unrest how to shift their way of thinking to a practice in natural therapies.
The biggest takeaway is that if you are in an extremely stressful situation that has begun to effect your health, get out of there. Look for something else. Your health and wellness is top priority. If you don’t take care of yourself, nobody can fix that for you.
If you can’t get out of the situation, learn techniques to keep the stress to a minimum. Here are some tips from Dr, Phil Carson on how to better manage your stress to find relief:
- Deep breathing exercises
- Develop a morning routine that will clear your mind and energize you throughout the day
- Quiet-time for yourself
- Begin easing into your day, instead of rushing into it
- Find a hobby that you can turn too in times of stress
- Find your soul/spirit
