Adrenalin and your Inner Cavewoman
Adrenalin is a great if you’re a cavewoman; super helpful if secreted in short bursts – like when a lion appears. Your body then gets rid of that stress hormone as you fight the lion or run away.
Problem is, our stressors are not lions. They’re a long-term, relentless source of adrenalin.
A bit like Coronavirus has been, lurking in the background, seeping into our homes through the radio, or worse. We’ve been living this, sleeping with this, reading about this, fearing this invisible thing for over a year now.
As cavewomen, when the lion came, it was kill or be killed; either way, it was over pretty quickly. We dealt with it and moved on, in exactly the way our bodies were designed to.
With Covid, we have become accustomed to living in bodies flooded with adrenalin and cortisol, living in bodies flooded with stress hormones 24/7. Anxiety, depression, low mood, stress and other problems have soared as a result, and everything feels uncertain.
Except that you don’t want anti-depressants, but that is all that’s on offer from your GP, or a long wait for counselling.
