How are you? 

Now that we are headed into the third month of the year I wanted to take a moment to talk to the go-getters, high achievers, and perfectionists among us. Those who are over worked, over committed, overscheduled and getting to the point where they are over it. 

You see it is around this time, when people who have been working hard towards their goals, saying “yes” to a lot of things and generally trying to keep up with the busyness of life, can start to feel awfully close to burnout. Sure you have done more and achieved more on the back of the New Year motivation but perhaps you are also starting to feel the effects of all your action? 

I’ve been there myself so I come to your inbox with genuine care and concern. In this issue I show you how you can slow down when you are a naturally fast action-taking person, and give you some tips on how to support your adrenals when it’s all systems go!

I hope you enjoy reading. Until next month remember thrive, don’t just survive!


How to slow down when you naturally go fast

Are you a naturally go fast person? I know I am. My mind races and the pace at which I like to get things done can make most people’s head spin. If something needs to be done, I’ll do it. If a goal I want to reach, I’ll reach for it and if there is any way to push myself out of my comfort zone? I’ll do it (ok well sometimes I might need a little push).

Are you the same? If you are you’ll know it is an exciting and fulfilling way to live. We get stuff done! But as you are no doubt well aware, there can also be a downside. We don’t always know when to slow down. We pack our schedules so tightly and take on so much that we can visit the edge of burnout a little too often!

Six ways to support your adrenals

Your adrenal glands are two small organs that sit above your kidneys and are part of your endocrine system. They help to produce over 50 hormones that drive almost every bodily function. So you want to look after them!
When you are go-go-go your adrenal glands need all the help they can get. Here are six easy ways you can support them so they can support you.
  1. Eat breakfast within an hour of getting up (or by 8am) to break the overnight fast
  2. Practice deep breathing throughout the day - particularly during stressful times
  3. Starting to feel your stress levels rise? Take a quick 10-minute walk outside. It will combat fatigue
  4. Sleep! Aim to get at least 7 hours sleep each night to give your body a chance to repair and recover
  5. Avoid caffeine. Not only will it keep you awake, caffeine can make it hard for your adrenals to recover. If you must have a fix, do it to before noon
  6. Speak to me about a reboot program to get your adrenals out of survival mode

Five ways giving can change your life

When we think about the benefits of giving, we often think about the impact it has on the receiver, not the person who gives. But do you know that giving of your time, money, possessions or talents can have lasting benefits for you as well as the person you are giving to? Here are five ways you can change your life, when you choose to make a difference in someone else’s.
