The Physiology of Stress and Why Self Care is Crucial

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As freelancers, gig workers, and entrepreneurs, the self-employed are under pressure 24/7. Whether you are a one man show or running a team of people odds are you feel the need to be constantly tuned in, turned on, and ready when clients call. We often are the ones handling all of the back end work, front end marketing, and the details in between. That whole burning the candle at both ends? We know it well, hell we lit the flames, and will do it again and again both to fill our wallets and feed our souls. And no matter how much we love we what we do the energy it takes to always be “on” will take its toll. Luckily, finding trending stress reduction techniques like meditation, adult coloring books, or CBD oil is easy but when business is our focus it’s also easy to put off finding what works for us. So what’s the problem? _x000D_
Our nervous systems are hardwired to protect us from real danger but have not necessarily evolved to understand life in a digital age. Come learn what “fight or flight” really means, how it applies to the daily life of the modern freelancer, and why it is so critical that we keep this physiological response in check. By understanding how our body responds to its unique daily stressors we gain insight behind the need for self-care regardless of the method. Learning to prioritize our health as part of our business model is the true key to longevity and success as a soulpreneur.
