You Can Get Your Energy Back!
Finding Balance in an Imbalanced World
If you’re feeling REALLY exhausted, feeling better may seem impossible. Who has the time or energy for a major dietary change? Who has the money for a bag full of supplements?
It is possible. That I can tell you for sure :)
…and it won’t (shouldn’t) break the bank.
I’ve healed from exhaustion (twice) myself, and I’ve helped hundreds of people regain their energy. So I KNOW this is possible :)
1. Fully notice how you’re feeling and your symptoms –
This can be hard to do, but it’s important. Your body wants to be acknowledged and it will get louder and louder until you sit quietly and listen to it. When you have a quiet moment, ask yourself a few questions -
How is your energy? (out of 10)
How is your digestion? Feeling any bloating, gas, irregularity, or other symptoms?
What do you crave? How strong are your cravings? (cravings are frequently a way for your body to find balance. Read more about that here :)
2. Normalize relaxation –
In this go go go world, relaxation and sleep are something we need to fight for.
To quote the amazing author Brené Brown – “It takes courage to say yes to rest & play in a culture where exhaustion is seen as a status symbol.”
And to start, just do what you can. Every minute counts.
That could be a short nap in your car before work or a meeting. Or a moment spent looking at a beautiful skyline. Or a Saturday night Epsom salt bath. Or a yin yoga class you love.
Anything you can do is amazingly healing <3
3. Add lots of nutrients to your day to boost your energy –
Your body needs extra nutrients when you’re under stress and adding a few more energy-dense foods can give you a nice boost of energy. And it also can be easy :)
- Head to your favourite juice bar and grab a freshly- pressed juice. These are nutrient powerhouses!
- Bring an apple or orange to work and enjoy it mid-afternoon
- Add a veggie to breakfast and/or lunch, like avocado, carrots, or just add a spoonful or two of salsa.
- Add sea salt to your water, it’s surprisingly healing (more on that here)
Start by adding just one, and add another one when you’re ready. No rush, go at your own pace :)
4. Add two easy nutrients –
Our body needs extra B vitamins and magnesium when we’re under stress and it can be really easy to become deficient quickly. Happily, these are also cheap and easy supplements :)
B Vitamins – look for a B25 or B50 complex and take it with breakfast. It turn your urine a very entertaining colour…so don’t be too shocked :)
Magnesium – choose a bisglycinate, glycinate, or citrate form. Enjoy 300mg 1 – 2 x per day. It’s a relaxing and energy-producing mineral :)
5. It’s okay to get some help…it can speed things along –
I’m a wee bit stubborn (I can hear all of my close friends and family laugh…maybe I’m more than a wee bit on the stubborn side). I like to do things myself and I really struggle with asking for help.
And, the first time I dealt with adrenal fatigue/burn out I DID ask for help but I was just sent to specialist after specialist, and all of them told me I was fine (I was DEFINITELY NOT fine).
But, over the years I’ve learned how powerful it can be to get help from a practitioner trained in helping with exhaustion and adrenal fatigue. When you’re feeling tired and your brain is fuzzy, it can be hard to know what to do and to find the right direction.
Naturopaths, Functional Medicine Doctors, and Registered Holistic Nutritionists (like me :) can help you get your energy and life back as quickly as possible.
I’d love to help you; I know first hand how wonderful it is to heal from exhaustion. You can find my consultation packages here :)
Please remember, you’re not alone. How you’re feeling right now is a normal reaction to the crazy world we’re living in…it’s just that no one is talking about.
So let’s start talkin’ about it <3
