Today I was feeling very tired so I didn't go to the gym like I had planned. In the past, I would avoid going to the gym when feeling this tired because I knew it would take a few days for me to recover my strength and I am afraid to be over tired at work. I used to be a go-go-go, non-stop, have to get everything done kind of girl and since seeing a naturopath I have slowed way way down. Her explanation for the IBS was that because my life was non stop, so were my bowel movements. Since slowing down I will admit that the IBS is 100x better. But I have also done lots of other things that may have helped so it's difficult to pinpoint exactly what it is that made the most difference. So, since she was right about that and some other things, I figured she was right when she told me I needed to listen to my body and if it said rest, I needed to rest. So today I rested. But then I began thinking that maybe I needed to push through and challenge the fatigue and that by resting I was actually reinforcing the TMS. I will say that I used to LIVE on caffeine to accomplish all of my to-do's. So, according to the naturopath, I had run my adrenals ragged using fake energy and ended up with adrenal fatigue and a wacky endocrine system. Now, I believe all dis-ease originates in the emotional body but that doesn't change the fact that my hormones are out of whack and my adrenals are tired, so I need to take care of my body in that regard, yeah? I guess I am just confused about when to rest and when to push through... Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
