Fatigue & Stress
The world can wear us down. Stress and Fatigue creeps in slowly over time. We forget that we cannot control the world, the people around us, how they behave, or the circumstances of our lives. We are in complete control of how we think and react to these situations, no matter how challenging they are. The key to stress and the consequent fatigue is that most people live in a reactive way. Realizing that we they have the power to change our lives by adapting our behavior and thought patterns which until then, have negatively impacted on the physical body. Stress drives an overload of adrenalin and cortisol, which hinders important processes like thought patterns, effective digestion & absorption, immune responses, and hormonal repair.
