Do You Suffer From ClimacophobiaTweet
What is Climacophobia?
Climacophobia- Fear of stairs, climbing, or of falling downstairs.
During relaxation, the body requires very low maintenance, and the decrease in metabolism is similar only to that found in deep sleep. Breathing becomes more regular and the heart rate decreases. In a sustained period of relaxation, oxygen consumption actually falls below that measured during deep sleep.
There is also a significant fall in blood lactate, a substance that enters the blood through the metabolism of skeletal muscles. This occurs three times faster during meditation, for example, than while sitting at rest. Blood pressure is also lowered, but only to normal pre-stress levels. All this allows the body to recover from the strains placed on it by the stress of everyday life.
