The antidote for exhaustion

Do you get that burnt-out feeling way too often? Or wake up exhausted emotionally and physically before your day begins? A simple antidote for this may be right under our chest.

I had a bit of an intense week; the too-sudden, shocking passing of my dear friend, Tiffany, threw me into a tailspin. We met through some old boyfriends about 15 years ago. I witnessed her marriage to Paul, lived in their casita, and traveled to their North Carolina home several times. Our birthdays were one day apart, so we Virgos got each other. She healed SO many people she touched with her beauty, intuition, profound power, and wholeheartedness. I love you, sister Tiffany, and all my love to Paul, her family, and many friends.

I set up a supportive appointment with some dear friends to navigate a few things going on with me and integrate the pain and love we feel with the loss of our loved ones.

​Susan & Sven​ shared their gifts while reminding me of this incredible story…

Gifted poet and speaker David Whyte visited Brother David Steindl-Rast one evening after a very long and stressful day at work.
David came home one evening particularly stressed from a day of ‘trying to fix the world and finding the world didn’t want to be fixed as quickly as he’d like.’
He sat down with his friend and suddenly, out of nowhere, almost beseechingly, asked, “Brother, speak to me of exhaustion.”
“The antidote to exhaustion is not necessarily rest,” said Brother Steindl-Rast, pausing as David looked at him surprised.
“The antidote to exhaustion is wholeheartedness.”

We weren’t designed for prolonged periods of chronic stress. Our nervous systems are overwhelmed into exhaustion like we have never felt. We have access to news from across the world within seconds, the population has doubled since I was born (3.9 billion to over 8 billion), got hit with an intense social experience that rocked everyone to the core of health and safety, while we are riding the waves of technological advancement vs. what we may be authentically craving.

I will be honest: I am saddened by how much of anyone’s, including my day, can consist of half-heartedness.

So, instead, my wish for you is this…Grow old well, get a double chin from laughing, moan out loud when you eat something yummy, and lead with your heart.
One of my favorite questions for any of us to inquire is: “What must I do to be at peace with myself so that I may live presently and die gracefully?”

As for nutrition, please do all the above and live more wholeheartedly.
I can only teach this by combining nutritional science, your instincts, self-compassion, light-heartedness, and personal awareness with your unique path.
