Women’s Health – Take the Tired Woman Quiz

Are you a tired woman? This may sound like a strange question but so many of the women we serve didn’t know they were tired!

For one thing, fatigued women tend to be Super Women over achievers! They are sooooo busy helping everyone else they lose track of their feelings – physically, emotionally and spiritually. Asking an exhausted woman how she “feels” is about as constructive as asking her about her hobbies or what she does for fun or which girlfriend she hooked up with last week. These are dead-end questions because fatigue is chip, chip, chipping away at her youth, joy, enthusiasm, simple pleasures, free time, dreams, friendships, marriage …

Women who are tired don’t tend to have hobbies or time for bubble baths or coffee dates with girlfriends. Instead of enthusiasm they often feel overwhelmed, resentful and angry.

STOP this vicious cycle. STOP your denial. You are the only one who can help yourself AND you are here on this page because you know something’s gotta change.

PSST. First put the oxygen mask on yourself, then you can help all the people you want. Tired women tend to do this backwards, right? Been there – done that and that’s how I became an expert on this Women’s Health Topic!

A New Year’s Resolution to re-Energize ALL of you!

This is just in from my friend Jennifer Clare and I had to share it with you! (Psst. If you have something cool to get us started in this new year add it here!)

Forget the resolutions. Forget control and discipline…too much work. Instead try experimenting. Go in search of something to fall in love with…something about yourself,
your career, your spouse.”– Dale Dauten

How refreshing! This time of year the papers and magazines are full of suggestions to detox, purge and diet – essentially beating yourself up for having been indulgent over the holidays.

Rather than buying into that punishing idea, try really falling in love. With you.

Go through your body and thank each and every part of it for being there for you, 24/7. Your body never stops working for you, carrying you around, allowing you to experience exquisite pleasures.

Your body is home.

So instead of being mean to it, decide to be kind and gentle. Feed it nourishing whole foods. Move and stretch it. Breathe lots of oxygen deep into it. And hydrate it! (I read yesterday that our goal with drinking water is to replace all the stale water in the body with clean fresh stuff – every day. Are you living in a spring-fed lake or a polluted, algae-filled pond?)

(And if you’re interested in learning to talk to your body and finding out exactly what IT wants – there are a handful of places left for the course on January 19th. Your Body KNOWS What It Needs!

Read more here.) You are marvellous and perfect. Treat yourself that way! thought matters! and so do you! Jennifer Clare http://www.thoughtmatters.com.au

Adrenal Fatigue and Cortisol Deficiency

According to Dr. Lee, author, What Your Doctor May Not Tell You, the below symptoms may indicate a “cortisol deficiency” caused by tired adrenals.

What tires out our adrenals? The simple everyday mix of juggling a job and juggling a family PLUS a drip of chronic stress — extended family expectations, financial downsize (or upsize), an illness, a major life change … (Psst. Any change is stressful, even from worse to better.)

Here are the symptoms of Cortisol Deficiency per Dr. Lee.

Debilitating Fatigue * Unstable blood sugar * Foggy Thinking * Low blood pressure * Thin and/or dry skin * Intolerance to exercise * Brown spots on face

Recognize any of these? Personally I wasn’t aware of unstable blood sugar (what test is that?) or my low blood pressure (which I was assured was “fine.” See below.) But the rest was me – oh yeah – right down to two large brown spots on my face.

Rule of thumb. Actually, a few.

1. Watch out when Drs. assure you that something is “fine” or “normal” after they remark or call attention to it as in “Boy, you have low blood pressure, has it always been this way?” Then you say something like “I don’t know. Is this a problem?” and they say “Of course not, this is normal in lots of people including world-class athletes.” (This is an actual conversation that I had with a doctor. BTW, I was not a world-class athlete. I was just a woman who was tired all the time!)

2. Check out Dr. Lee’s books: Dr. John Lee’s Hormone Balance Made Simple: The Essential How-to Guide to Symptoms, Dosage, Timing, and More and What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About(TM): Premenopause, Balance Your Hormones and Your Life from Thirty to Fifty

3. Cortisol, what is it? It is a steroid hormone manufactured in the adrenal glands. It puts the ump into our fight or flight which is why it is referred to as “the stress hormone.”

4. Stress, who needs it. If you feel stressed all the time and your life really isn’t “on the line” PLEASE find a way to soothe your spirit and give your hormones a break. One of my somethings is the practice of Reiki. Learn more about it with this easy-to-follow book called “Portable Reiki.” In minutes a day you will feel the difference and, like it implies, you can take it and do it anywhere.

An Ancient Chinese Proverb tells us, “If we do not change our direction, we are likely to end up where we are headed.” If you are tired of feeling tired all the time, perhaps it’s time for a new direction.

Save Time, Double Up And, get a mom’s day off from cooking. One way is to “double up.” Specifically, double up every dinner recipe you make this month. Gonna cook for four? Cook for eight instead. One meal goes on the table, the other goes in the fridge.

Another way is to “add extra.” Your recipe calls for a cup of rice and a pound of spinach? Make it a cup and half and a pound and a half. What you don’t eat for dinner turns into a microwave lunch. Still a little “left over”? Freeze it!

Your goal mom – should you decide to take it on – is to cook double enough and extra enough so that you don’t have to cook at all for at least one day a week! We’ll call that day, Mom’s Day Off!
