Stress: It’s Not in Your Head, it’s in Your Nervous System

Have you ever been told when you’re stressed to stop worrying and just relax? That it’s all in your head? It would be nice if it were that simple. But it’s not.

Physiology research shows that the stress response memory lives in your nervous system. Take for example exposure to a stressful event. One in which you felt helpless, hopeless, and lacked control. In this case your autonomic nervous system (ANS) is engaged. This is the part of the nervous system responsible for controlling unconscious bodily actions like breathing. To be more specific, it was……

They discuss gender equality at universities, at women’s NGOs in the big cities, in artistic circles and online, where they spread the word and mobilise other women for the cause. These grassroots NGOs are the most active with campaigners often stepping out into public spaces to raise awareness and fight against discrimination and abuse. In the past couple of years, activists have rallied to “occupy male toilets”, have protested against sexual harassment in the subway and against violence on women outside government buildings.

Women and love in China

An intimate portrait women of different generations in Beijing today who discover their sexuality and are immersed in a personal struggle to take control of their lives in a rapidly-changing society dogged by tradition. The film concentrates on two main characters: the older Xiao (50) who was widowed several years ago and is currently trying to create a new life for herself, and the 32-year-old writer Wen Wen. She is what is officially known as a ‘leftover’, a term used in China since 2007 for single, childless women over 27. They are considered a social problem because, despite the fact that many are highly educated and attractive, today’s Chinese males fear their strength and intellect. Sexual psychologist Hongli Zhen, an expert on recent developments in Chinese society provides commentary and context. She gives sex workshops that encourage women –including our main characters – to see their sexuality differently, and use techniques that make them happy. Hongli is our guide through the world of today’s China’s sexual revolution.

Really worth watching and sharing with friends. If you cannot open from China please let me know. I will help you to see the film. 🙂
