The last couple of weeks have been hectic to say the least. Over and above work, there has been 2 full 9-10 hour days of Continuing Education, an 8 a.m. meeting followed by an 8 hour day at the clinic, executing a Halloween party for 7 six year old boys, along with the regular clinic hours, helping with homework, cooking and cleaning. I find as the weather is getting colder I’m wanting to nest and purge as well and the holidays are fast approaching! All of this means my adrenal glands have been working overtime and while I’ve had the energy for it all, I need to not take them for granted because I’ve seen all too often the adrenal crash that can result.
If you’re like me and you love what you do, you don’t mind putting in the extra hours to do it well, but and this is a big but, our adrenal glands need a certain amount of downtime every single day to keep functioning at their best. So get out the day planner and true to Type A form, schedule in your daily down time.
