Stress Starts In The Brain- NuCalm Helps You Navigate Heightened Stress Levels

Stress levels continue to soar as we deal with the uncertainty of our current social climate and how the world will have to change in the future. Social unrest continues to cause significant emotional hardship with injuries, arrests and destruction of property in many cities, and there is no short-term fix to our systemic problems. Pandemic cases continue to rise in some parts of the world and there are considerable inconsistencies in how each area is implementing “back to normal”. In addition, people are worried about the health of themselves and their loved ones, job security, the economy, and the physical and emotional well-being of their communities.

The amygdala is the part of the brain that processes memory, decision-making and emotion responses. When the amygdala senses stress, it sends a signal through the autonomic nervous system to the adrenal glands. The adrenal glands respond by pumping adrenaline through the bloodstream—the heart rate quickens, the stomach flutters and the muscles tense. These sensations originate in the sympathetic nervous system, the “fight-or-flight” response, when the body senses danger, physical or psychological. Research suggests that the way the amygdala processes novel threats may raise anxiety levels more than familiar threats, due to the uncertainty.

The “rest-and-digest” response is the biological opposite and originates in the parasympathetic nervous system. During the “rest-and-digest” state, the body feels relaxed and rested. Balancing the amount of time our body spends in “fight-or-flight” and “rest-and-digest” is called autonomic nervous system balance.

Stress levels will likely continue to increase due to the uncertainty of the current social unrest and pandemic. NuCalm can help.
