Collaborating for Health
The private sector and government have done an amazing job of collaborating and providing a game-plan to assist our country. Having experience in corporate healthcare for nearly 30 years, and knowing just how difficult getting all the players on the same page can be, it is truly a magnificent display of teamwork. Hearing and seeing what large companies such as Walmart, Google, CVS, Labcorp and others are accomplishing in record time is what makes our country’s contribution to society great. Companies that are competitors, working in cooperation for the good of all Americans in a time of need.
Franklin D. Roosevelt once said in a speech in 1912: “Competition has been shown to be useful up to a point and no further, but cooperation, which is the thing we must strive for today, begins where competition leaves off.”
Fear and Stress = Compromised Immune System
Our focus should be on being thankful for so many bright and brilliant people that are working long hours to protect us all. Having said this, know that fear can be paralyzing. When we're in fear mode, we're in fight/flight mode. And when we're stressed, we're also in fight/flight mode. So fear & stress are basically the same things having the same effect on the body. Fight or flight is when our stress hormones go on high alert. The challenge is, high alert was meant to be for a temporary time to get us out of danger. (You know, running from the tiger to avoid death by tiger eating.)
Unfortunately in our world today, stress hormones stay on high alert all day long for things like work deadlines, traffic, family schedules, etc. making it difficult to sleep, stay calm and spend time relaxing. None of these mean you will die from being eaten by a tiger if you do not meet the deadline or goal however, our body no longer understands this and dumps all stress into the same bucket. When we're stressed, we're actually scared....of something(s). And most of those things never even come to pass. Take this quote to heart...
“I've had a lot of worries in my life, most of which never happened.” ― Mark Twain
Fight or Flight
The stress (fight/flight) response compromises the immune system. Some of these stress hormones also feed or support the immune system. So basically, allowing yourself to become overwhelmed with fear and watching the play by play every minute only tears down your body’s ability to stay strong. According to the National Institutes of Health, up to 90% of all illness is related to stress. People's immune systems become more compromised due to all the fear generated by the media attention or thoughts of bad news. Don’t believe me? Don’t you feel good when someone brings you flowers or pays you a compliment? Don’t you feel lousy when someone calls you a derogatory name or hits your car in the parking lot?
