Are you exhausted but you can’t switch off?

It’s been, what feels like, a gazillion weeks since lockdown began and many people are finding that exhaustion has hit along with poor sleep and not being able to switch off. Is this you?

These are all common effects of being stressed for a long period. No one can have avoided the massive lifestyle changes that have happened this year. Even if you’ve been going to work throughout, your work load, what you have to juggle and just getting weekly shopping has been challenging.

This long term dramatic shift can lead to adrenal fatigue. When we are faced with an emergency or big challenge the body releases many hormones to help us deal with the situation – our fight of flight response. When the challenge lasts for a prolonged period of time we can become exhausted, our vital reserves that feed this emergency response get depleted and are just generally fatigued. If you have been struck down with the Covid-19 virus then the nutritional resources that supported your immune response will have been put under strain too.

There has also been some strong astrological activity going on, uncomfortable situations arising, issues that have been simmering in the background quite rightly boiling over, disbelief in governing bodies and so much more. It’s been such an emotionally & physically busy time.

So many people are struggling with exhaustion at the moment. I would like to focus on this and areas that can be adversely affected by prolonged stress over the coming weeks.

Like you, I’ve panicked, then decided not to live in fear, had life change dramatically, had financial challenges, been trying to support family emotionally & nutritionally, so have not been immune to all the shenanigans or the adrenal strains.

However, immense gratitude for the big & little things in life, my family, daily walks in nature, the garden have all kept my internal light & faith in humans burning brightly. My wish is that I can help you all feel that too, no matter what your journey over the past few months has been. We all have an amazing uniqueness & the right to shine brightly.

Over the coming weeks, leading up to my next Immune Boosting Programme, starting on 21st August to super charge your immune system before autumn, I’ll work on showing you easy ways to support your gut (not just for nutrition but for emotional balance too), adrenal system & sleep.
