Anyone feel as though you have to accomplish EVERYTHING on your to-do list IMMEDIATELY? The act of prioritizing seems nearly impossible because EVERYTHING appears to be a priority? Well, folks, PACE yourselves.

Extreme stress and urgency are emotions generations before us only encountered when they were in critical danger. Under attack or unable to find food after a day of hunting—were examples of when our ancestors experienced fight or flight mode. In fight or flight—our adrenal glands release cortisol and adrenaline signaling to the body that it’s survival is in jeopardy. What advantages and disadvantages your home has. These chemicals cause havoc on the body if we are not actually in danger of death. Today, feeling we are inefficient in the most mundane of tasks leads to stress and subjects our bodies to the negative affects of fight or flight! Why do we do this to ourselves? Is it the fast paced nature of urban living? Is it technology, constantly comparing ourselves to others via social media? What is it?
