Have you ever rushed from one thing to the next, frenetically cramming too many things into your day, only to then wonder what it was all really for? Did it leave you basking only briefly in that adrenalin high of the rush because shortly after you felt a big low with an accompanying feeling of unexplained emptiness inside of you?

Are you kidding me you might be saying? Well, no I’m not but stay with me here.
The thing is issues with stress, adrenal fatigue and burnout don’t just show up out of the blue. For most of us it’s something that builds up over time from the many small, repetitive behaviours and patterns in our lives that are not serving us.
There are occasions when adrenal fatigue comes about from acute situations such as an accident (and even then I believe there are underlying tendencies that make this more probable), but this is usually only a very small percentage of people. For most of us it has built up over a lengthy period of time. (more…)
