Stress is such a wonderful thing helping us to react fast when we are in danger. But most of us are not in danger most time of the day. Still our bodies too often run on adrenaline and we have all these symptoms we cannot really explain.
Biochemist Libby Weaver have focussed her work on stress and women and present symptoms of what she calls the ‘Rushing Woman’s Syndrome’. These include physical issues such as digestive system problems, not enough sleep, painful menstruations, PMS, a racing heart and shallow breathing. It also includes feelings of not being good enough and there is an every day challenge in serving others, getting things done and making time for yourself.
Libby’s message calls out to me. I am a ‘rushing woman’ myself who care so much for other people and often take (too much) responsibility on my shoulders. It’s time to learn how to relax. It’s time to reset what is normal. That brain fog, the guilt, those sugar cravings and that spinning mind is NOT normal. It might have been there for a long time making it feel like normal. But it is not. And it is possible to change it.
