We all experience a little work stress from time to time, and a little stress is actually good for us. But do you know when you have stepped over that line?
Do you listen to the needs of your body in those times and are you aware of the stress indicators that are trying to get your attention?
From 2005 to 2010 I ran my own small business – the wrong way! The amount of stress I experienced as a result of not taking care of my own needs in the process was debilitating and a life changer (actually in the end for the better).
I had to reach an enormous low – that of bankruptcy, burnout and a relationship breakdown to really take a serious look at my life. Continue reading
Oh the irony of it all. I had wanted to write a post on how to relieve stress in just two minutes, to help to bring you back into balance quickly after a stressful event.
Just before I started writing it, I had an awkward exchange with someone that caused my “stress levels” to rise. I felt my blood pressure go up, my heart rate increase and I felt shaken up. My body was basically going into “fight or flight” mode and I needed to quickly do some of these two minute techniques that I’m about to tell you about. I just laughed to myself at the irony. So, I straight away put into practice some of these valuable yogic breathing and other calming tools that I have been using these last few years. Continue reading
Over this last generation, women have moved out of largely staying in the traditional role of taking care of the family and home duties. It seems however, that women have moved into a new phase of not only being able to HAVE IT ALL, but trying to DO IT ALL.
So much has shifted and this is taking some adjusting to!! Women, more so than men, often care take everyone around them, but unfortunately this leads to many women feeling extremely depleted, not caring for their own needs and becoming stressed and wornout and dealing with many levels of adrenal fatigue.

I’m so glad you’ve found your way here. This is where you get the link between stress, adrenal fatigue and how to heal.
I was always very familiar with the short term symptoms of how stress affected me.
I would feel my blood pressure rising and a constriction in my head. I felt anxiety and an inability to relax easily. I would find my breathing getting very shallow and occasionally I also suffered with headaches & insomnia.
In past situations, these symptoms usually subsided within a day or two and I felt back to “normal”. Continue reading

What if I told you that healing Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome is really about your ability to handle all that is going on in your life, while still having the time, the focus and the commitment to care equally as much for yourself.
Adrenal Fatigue Syndrome comes about when the balance of all that we do for everyone else and everything else is not in balance with what we do to love and care for ourselves. It really is as simple as that. What is not so simple for many of us, is actually finding this balance in our every day lives. Continue reading
So How Long to Treat Adrenal Fatigue? Really, how long does it take to recover? And is it really possible? Well, in my opinion, yes it is!!!!
Back in Oct, 2010 I had crumbled. I had no idea what was going on with me. I was completely worn out, feeling weak, it seemed I was intolerant to everything I ate, I had digestive disturbances, my blood sugars had gone haywire and I had lost hope. I didn’t realise at the time that I was in severe adrenal fatigue. I didn’t know where to turn and fumbled along for many months before I understood what was going on. Finally, it made sense – I was suffering from adrenal fatigue and I wanted to know if I could recover from this and how long it was going to take!!! Continue reading
