In my line of work as a leadership coach, I find it interesting how many times I have heard clients say, "To function in my profession and workplace, I have to hide my spiritual side." If you can relate to this, then listen up. After all, you are a multi faucet being with depth. Your spiritual side is part of the richness of who you are at core level.
We all face stressful situations throughout our lives, ranging from minor annoyances like traffic jams to more serious worries, such as an illness or the death of a loved one. No matter the cause, we still experience stress. Stress, which triggers the body into releasing cortisol, is often called the stress hormone. Cortisol is the hormone that causes your heart to pound, your breathing speeds up, and your muscles tense. This is all in preparation for the Flight or Fight response that is needed in a survival situation, like running from a wild animal.
