FACT: When it comes to stress and anxiety, the earlier you address it the better
Not dealing with unresolved stress and anxiety is one of the worst things you can do. Stress and anxiety is a symptom, often with trauma at the underlying root cause.
Like an ember, it burns inside your mind. Burying stress doesn't put it out - it still burns. The longer you leave it the worse it gets.
The more stress and anxiety you harbour, the more fuel you add to the fire inside your mind.
Unresolved stress and anxiety can wreak havoc on your mind and body due to increased levels of the stress hormone cortisol. This makes you more susceptible to future stressors and chronic illnesses.
This is why it's so important to equip children with effective tools they can use to put out any fire burning inside their mind as early as possible
The four elements required for a trauma to be encoded in your mind:
A lot of people talk about there being two types of trauma - big Trauma and little trauma
The truth is, size doesn't matter when it comes to trauma. If you have the four elements necessary for a trauma to be encoded in your mind, it doesn't matter how old you are, or how you or others perceive it's importance, the encoding will be there in your mind regardless
Trauma doesn't care about your age, colour, size, shape, gender bias, ethnicity... Trauma is trauma, irrespective of how long ago it happened
It is incredibly easy to dismiss the impact an unexpected event can have on a child as we view it through adult eyes. Children's brains are still evolving and continue to do so until they are 25 years old as females and 28 years old as males.
They don't have the emotional or cognitive knowledge to differentiate between what is a threat or not, and so what may appear as an innocuous event can easily be encoded as a trauma inside their mind, such as a balloon bursting at a birthday party
The four elements required for a trauma to be encoded in your mind are:
- Event - an event will have taken place, whether you remember it or not, that is significant for your mind. This can be a singular event or in the instance of layered trauma, multiple events, constituting an 'experience.' Traumatic events can be encoded in your mind as soon as your brain comes 'online' in the womb
- Meaning - your mind assigns a particular meaning to that event, in essence it sees the event as a threat to your survival, in whatever form your mind interprets 'survival'
- Landscape - the landscape in your mind is vulnerable to the event being perceived as a threat. For example, you may have experienced similar events that you had encoded as a threat, or something else was happening in your life at the time, which increased your vulnerability to having the trauma encoded in your mind
- Inescapability - you perceive the event as inescapable. It doesn't feel safe. You wanted to be able to 'escape' from it, but you could not
Has a child in your care been involved in an experience that was significant? That felt like a threat? At the time they felt or were vulnerable? They couldn't escape from it?
The chances are your child experienced trauma. Are you ready to equip them with a simple, yet powerful tool to help them reduce their day to day stress and anxiety and better manage their emotions?
