Why are we all so good at stressing out?

The truth is, you were born to do it—literally. While you were still in the womb, your body first learned how to get, technical term here, all stressy. It’s innate, which also means that we can’t get rid of it. Ever. Sorry. But here’s the good news, the reason you were born with it, is because stress... is actually useful.

    3. Balance the 3 body systems that manage stress

Those are the keys to the kingdom. With a little understanding, some action, and a bit of science, your stress will become your superpower. And we’re here to help you do it.

  • #1 Mindset: So wait, stress is good?

    "Yep. And understanding that is the first step to stress work for you. Think of stress like pain. Something that, while seemingly a bummer, is actually there to alert you of a problem.

    Without getting too far into the weeds, there are two kinds of stress. One for challenges, and one for fear. The challenge kind of stress is good. It gives you a gentle kick for a run, or a presentation, or a first date. The fear kind of stress is not-so-good. It stops you from thinking clearly and leads to panic, sweaty palms, and some occasionally regrettable decision making.

    The trick is to see the difference so you can identify what you’re feeling in the moment. Then, with some light practice, you can actually shift from freaking out to focusing in."
  • #2 Stress Exercises: Have you tried petting a puppy?

    "No seriously, it’s scientifically proven to work. What a win, right? And it’s not the only thing. Once you understand the way stress affects you in a situation, there’s a whole bunch of actions you can take to steer it into something positive.

    Navy Seals (who, my god the stress) practice a simple breathing technique to turn their very real stresses into useful tools. Yogis have their own breathing practices that have been working for thousands of years. And of course as we already mentioned, petting a dog, looking into its eyes, and snuggling it ferociously has been proven to relieve stress by releasing a hormone called oxytocin.

  • #3 Keep your body's stress systems balanced

    "Ah, the physical effects of stress. Raised heart rates, getting a bit woozy, even an actual cold. They’re very real symptoms, and they’re very addressable. And that’s where the R3SET capsule comes in.

    We’re gonna get nerdy for a second here, so bear with us. The physical effects of stress can affect the three main body systems: The (1) nervous, (2) endocrine and (3) immune system. When you get stressed, these three systems that normally work in harmony, become less, let's say harmonious, which means when one is affected, the other two follow suit. And that leads to an imbalance of these systems. Enter the physical symptoms.

    Most products for stress or anxiety are made to target one of the three systems. Which may help for a bit, but it leaves everything else out of, scientifically speaking, whack. R3SET works on the three systems to support balance, AKA, allostasis. That means your body will have what it needs to support your own natural response."

Great for stress. Great for you, too.
