19th Century poet Ian MacLaren wrote, “Be kind. Everyone you meet is carrying a heavy burden.”
That statement is more true now than ever.
Did you know that according to psychologists, each of us has what’s called an allostatic load — think of a stress thermostat where if things get too stressful for you, you find ways to relax and shut down.
AND, the allostatic load also works the other way — believe it or not, if we don’t feel sufficiently stressed our minds will find something to be upset or worry about.
The mind then finds something annoying, irritating, or bothersome so allostatic load feels adequately upset.
