Exhaustion is a real thing and it can affect us in many ways. As a mom that’s always on the go I’ve had to sit myself down and realize the severity of “burn out”. Sometimes it seems inevitable as we submit to the many tasks of life because we want to succeed and success doesn’t come from sitting back and waiting for an opportunity to grab us, but we also have to take our health into consideration while on the pursuit of success. After doing a bit of research on symptoms of exhaustion and comparing them to my own, I’d realize that something has to give. You, also, may be experiencing the effects of exhaustion if you have any of these symptoms:
- Stomach Pain
- Anger/ Irritation
- Chest Pain
- Chronic Fatigue syndrome (CFS)
- Adrenal Fatigue
According to NativeRemedies.com:
If ignored, exhaustion can lead to serious consequences such as burnout, excessive stress, depression, as well as lowered immune system functioning. All of these make us more vulnerable to illness and infection, creating a vicious cycle.
What people often don’t realize is that symptoms of exhaustion are usually a warning that something is wrong physically or emotionally, or that our lifestyle is in serious need of examination and change.
The most common factors that contribute to exhaustion are work, stress, seasonal illnesses, and high blood pressure. Coming from someone who’s currently undergoing some of these symptoms I can attest to this, I’ve also dealt with nausea and shortness of breath. If you are seriously considering tackling exhaustion or “burn out” head-on start small and tweak some of your lifestyle habits such as eating, choose more nutritional foods for fuel and make it a point to become more active. If all else fails please see a physician to help assist you on your journey to good health.
