[RERUN] 007  - Stress and its Impact

Welcome to The Fully Lived Life podcast! A podcast for those who are longing to pursue the full life and want to break free from anything that holds them back. Listen in as two friends - a psychologist, Dr. Merry and a life coach, Gillian - talk about life, love and purpose - with wisdom, humour and transparency -  through the lens of science, psychology, and life experiences.

In this episode, Gillian shares how stress impacted her life and how she made adjustments to get back on track.

Merry shares how our population as a whole is becoming more stressed and how children as young as 3 years of age are presenting with signs of anxiety and stress.

  • Gillian shares how stress was presenting in her life and impacting her health
  • As previously discussed in Episode 006 - Gillian admits to living with very little margin in her life.
  • As an Enneagram 8 - Active Controller and a person who sees perseverance as both a strength and a weakness - Gillian shares how pushing through leads to heightened stress.
  • Merry challenges Gillian to share how the lies and mental agreements were driving her to continue in unhealthy patterns.
  • What are the lies that are driving you?
  • What are the mental agreements that you are believing?
  • Gillian came to the decision that a hard stop in her life in some areas was necessary when her physical health  began to suffer and recovery took longer and longer.
  • What external and internal changes may you have to make to handle and reduce stress in your life?
