It happens to the ones who are just all too capable
Some days, it feels like you’re a firefighter – deftly springing from one semi-catastrophe to another – family, work, fighting your way through traffic. The world demands a lot from you, and you multi-task like a ninja. But you are tired, and nothing sounds better than to take some time out and let go in a nice hot bath [link to power of heat blog].
It’s time for a break. But how do you know when it’s time to take a breather, or if it’s time to re-evaluate and make some lifestyle decisions? Or when signs point to something more in need of medical attention? Take a look at the following symtoms and check the ones that apply to you:
- muscle and joint pain, stiffness and tenderness
- weight gain or loss
- vision problems
- poor work performance
- changes in body temperature
- and changes in appetite
- fatigue that doesn’t go away even after getting good sleep
- difficulty falling and staying asleep through the night
- frequently getting sick, such as having a sore throat, cold or flu-like symptoms
- digestive problems like constipation or cramps
- trouble concentrating and remembering things clearly
If you checked off more than half of the list above for yourself or a loved one, you may want to consider a wellness consultation, especially if a couple self-care treatments or a vacation to Thailand doesn’t do the trick. The symptoms above are part of the signs for more serious but treatable imbalances like thyroid disease or adrenal fatigue and chronic fatigue.
