“The time to relax is when you don’t have time for it.” – Sydney J. Harris
About four months ago, I reached a level of exhaustion that I had never experienced before.
Completely drained of energy and so tired that I was not able to function properly, I paid a visit to my local GP. I was given B12 supplements and sent on my way.
But the vitamins didn’t help.
And I was left wondering why.
Quite serendipitously, I came across a simple explanation of tiredness which made complete sense:
“If you’re always tired you have a chronic imbalance in your energy. It’s usually caused by chronic stress. This is how it works. You’re tense and stressed. Your body contracts. This also contracts the meridians, or energy channels that carry the energy through your body.
You’re now receiving less energy because the meridian capacity is reduced. You have to push yourself to achieve more with less energy. It makes you feel more stressed and tense, further reducing the flow of energy. It’s a vicious cycle, eventually leading to exhaustion.
If you want to turn it around you need to relax so your meridians open up. Then you start to receive more energy. This can feel very pleasant, which relaxes you further. As you open up more you receive even more energy. It’s a virtuous cycle, eventually giving you abundant energy.
If you relax every day you’ll gradually overcome the tiredness and you’ll be able to balance your energy naturally. You’ll find you don’t want to get stressed any more. It feels far better to be relaxed.”
The secret to overcoming exhaustion is to relax – every day.
Geez, who has time for that?
With two kids, a full time job and a business to manage, I’m always on the go, running from one task to the next. I’m sure many of you can relate – relaxation is a complete waste of time, when there are so many other much more important things that need to be done!
I wasn’t sure how to relax.
So I delved deeper, and reached out to Sarah McCrum, the energy expert who provided the explanation of tiredness that I shared with you above.
Sarah studied Energy with two Chinese Masters for 22 years – and has been teaching and helping leaders and professionals worldwide how to manage their personal energy so that they don’t burn out.
As it turns out, Sarah has devised a way to relax, thereby increasing your energy, which is so easy it seems contradictory (especially to the legal mind!).
I took a road test and can tell you that the results are powerful and amazing. So much so, that I had to share it with you.
