Have you been suffering from chronic fatigue lately? Find yourself tossing and turning at night unable to shut off your brain? Feeling at a low… emotionally, physically or spiritually? Have you lost your appetite? Or are you binge eating from stress or boredom? Been looking for your mojo and can’t seem to find it anywhere?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are not alone. Many women today are running on empty. I certainly feel a little like this lately. Now we all have stresses in our life… be it stress with our kids, in a marriage, in a career, financial pressures, or even the stress as a result of being stuck in traffic and running late for a meeting. But the key in all of this, is how we deal with it. Some deal better and take to exercise, healthy eating and a positive attitude to cope with stress. Some take to the bottle, to drugs, and to other toxic forms of self soothing. But, when stress and anxiety are not taken care of and are allowed to fly out of proportion, they start to feed off your body for survival and this leads to problems. I read a quote that I like “When you find yourself stressed, ask yourself one question: Will this matter in 5 years from now? If yes, then do something about the situation. If no, then let it go.” Catherine Pulsifer
