Getting Enough Rest?

baby resting
Really, I mean it.

Do you rest enough?

I have noticed being very tired lately and have had to regroup to see why my system feels like it’s perpetually switched “on”.
What I found out was that I was getting sucked into things like too many emails and too much Facebook as well as not exercising enough. This in addition to very happy family events which required being out late and eating late as well. It has resulted in the beginnings of aching joints and even some lack of motivation.

When your system thinks it has to be on all of the time, your endocrine system sends out lots of “on” hormones and keeps your system revved up most of the time.

This can lead to fatigue, irritability, loss of concentration and memory and hormonal imbalance.

Hormonal imbalance can cause a cascade of more imbalances, including digestive disorders and even cancer.

We were never meant to be “on” all of the time. Our nervous system needs time to rest and replenish and without this, it puts out major stress hormones.

If you are a regular meditator, then I congratulate you for taking such good care of yourself and your body. Meditation and even taking naps gives our system a chance to reset and balance.

So do you have a practice to regroup or reset yourself?

What do you do to get off the Merry Go Round of Life?

I would love to hear your stories and if it fits for you, will include your way of balancing yourself in one of the next newsletters.

Above all, please do take care of yourself. Nobody else can do it for you.
