Hello beautiful goddess
Do you find yourself often saying "I don't have time", "I'm so tired" or "I have so much to do?".
Right now, there is an epidemic amongst womankind, as Dr Libby calls it 'Rushing Woman's Syndrome'. She explains the biochemical knock-on effects from stress and lifestyle in her 2012 book of the same name. Rushing Women's Syndrome is a term used to describe the cascade of hormonal changes that happens when we feel stressed for extended periods. It can manifest in anything from unexplained weight gain, to fatigue, to mood swings.
According to US medical research centre the Mayo Clinic: "Long-term activation of the stress-response system - and the subsequent overexposure to cortisol and other stress hormones - can disrupt almost all your body's processes."
"This puts you at increased risk of numerous health problems, including: anxiety, depression, digestive problems, heart disease, sleep problems, weight gain, memory and concentration impairment."
Stress can be the result of a perceived or a real threat. The body doesn't know the difference between the stress we feel at work, for instance, or stress from the risk of an attack. It only knows that it is stressed and responds accordingly.
The cumulative effect of constantly feeling pressure can create a cascade of stress hormones that is detrimental to our physical and mental health.
I'd like to introduce you to my client Charlotte - a goddess who was (emphasis on was!) the embodiment of Rushing Woman's Syndrome.
Working as a Legal Counsel, at same time as getting her Wellness business off the ground, she never felt she had the time to really 'walk her talk'. Married, and with beautiful fur babies to take care of, there was a seemingly endless list of things to do.
Her energy levels were completely depleted when we first met, and her greatest Wellness goal was around routines and self-care practices - exactly what I live for as a coach!
Charlotte felt as though she was on a hamster wheel - always moving, never having enough time or getting ahead in life. She wanted a greater sense of ease and flow in her days. Her greatest asset at this starting point was however, her willingness to embrace change.
It's when we are at our busiest, that we REALLY need to make the time to look after ourselves.
We worked together on making various lifestyle revisions to help bring the body back into biochemical balance. Not in the least was the state of her email inbox, and how many hours she was researching and comparing herself to other industry service providers. Our time together also included an hour of yoga and meditation a week via Skype, with wonderful results.
Charlotte now sees the value in putting herself first, and not feeling the need to do it all at once. We created more space and structure in her hectic schedule, where she could decrease her stress levels and unwind from the day.
The main reason we achieved such great results, is because the coaching was tailored to her as an individual, and her needs.
Are YOU ready to make the change from Rushing Woman to Nourished Goddess?
I still have a few spots remaining for a complimentary 1:1 Wellness Breakthrough session with me via Skype - is one of them yours?
