Today's the day we say goodbye to 2019, and while most are discussing plans to hit 2020 hard and heavy, I'd like to introduce a thought on behalf of your adrenal glands: consider allowing yourself some time this winter season to rest and recover.
YOU KNOW HOW WE POWERED THRU THANKSGIVING AND CHRISTMAS.....ALL THE WHILE SECRETLY WISHING WE COULD JUST CURL UP ON THE COUCH WITH A GOOD BOOK AND READ OURSELVES INTO A BLISSFUL WINTER'S NAP? IF YOU HAVE THAT FEELING, YOU'RE NOT ALONE.... THAT'S YOUR BODY TRYING TO TELL YOU SOMETHING. IT NEEDS TIME TO REST AND RECOVER FROM THE RAT 🐁 RACE! WE ARE NOT DESIGNED TO RUN 24/7/365.
❄️Winter is a time for fallen leaves, hibernation.... an energy reset. That's an inaction not just reserved for nature! Prior to man-made electricity..... it was what we humans did too. We haven't changed ya'll..... allowing ourselves time to be still and quiet (ESPECIALLY in the Winter) will help boost internal health and go a long way towards setting the tone for your health in 2020.
❄️Winter is especially important for an adrenal gland / kidney / bladder reset. (Think water..... in the winter, water tends to slow down to a crawl.... especially if frozen).
Our adrenal glands are the little party hat shaped organ that sit atop the kidneys. They produce the stress hormone cortisol..... an absolutely critical factor in regulating metabolism, and helping us "power thru". Too much tho?..... and trouble begins to brew. The body cannot keep up. Dysregulation occurs, and adrenal fatigue may result.
🔥Common signs of adrenal fatigue: deep, long lasting exhaustion, water retention, weight gain, lack of motivation, depression/anxiety, brain fog, insomnia, feelings of chronic stress.🔥
The emotion of fear is based in the kidneys, and allowing chronic stress into your life will only guarantee a fear based emotional lifestyle. #lovenotfear
Stay tuned.... Part II is to come..... but in the meantime..... that bucket list for 2020?..... consider allowing time for a winter reset so that you don't fizzle and can be all you are meant to be in 2020 with vibrant health! 😘
