Are you needing the adrenalin rush?

We’ve all heard of someone being described as a drama queen – man or women. And we may even fall into that category ourselves. You know, the times when we turn something unimportant into a major issue, blowing things way out of proportion. The behaviour can be overt, with shouting or holding the focus of people’s attention by talking on and on about an issue. Sometimes it can be more covert with things like loud sighs and excessive shuffling of papers. When in this state, we experience a chemical high from the adrenalin that is rushing around our bodies. This can become addictive. It can be a real problem to the drama queens as they need to create the drama in response to the addictive need for the adrenaline rush.

As with any addiction, this is a serious problem as the body is craving the chemicals and cannot function without the fix, in just the same way as a smoker needs that puff.

Some people create the drama wherever an opportunity arises, others seem to only create the drama with certain people or certain situations.

To find out more, here is a humorous and helpful article.

This is typically the time to switch your mind off work, prepare for the festive season, just chill, or hang-out with friends. Typically it is also the time when we spend more money on gifts, parties, spending our bonuses (for those lucky enough to receive such a blessing) on luxury items, or new clothes, or going away on holiday.

Act to seek out such suffering – it may be hiding in that very women or child in front of you. Fear and pain are hidden within victims of violence.

So reach out with kindness and love – you may prevent a trauma, even save a life, and help restore hope and belief in life.

Feeling worn out with low tolerance?

When it comes to cultivating resilience, the magic is in the very first step.
When cultivating your resilience become aware of your mental and emotional state. Remember that if you get into an anxious, or even angry ‘state’, you can easily go into a downward spiral where the negative feeling gets stronger. That’s called a ‘feedback loop’.
