Exhausted? Overwhelmed? Stressed all the time?
- Do you need five cups of coffee to make it through the day?
These are just a handful of questions that are addressed in a wonderful new book Are You Tired and Wired? Your Proven 30 day Program for Overcoming Adrenal Fatigue and Feeling Fantastic Again by Marcelle Pick, MSN, OB/GYN NP, the founder of Women to Women and author of The Core Balance Diet.
This is a book of insight and uncommon wisdom. This is a book with a clear action plan of practical steps and guidelines to address the loss of health and well-being that comes from an on the go, out of balance, stress filled life. This is a book that is pragmatic at heart, showing us exactly what we can do to recover from a lifestyle that has left us exhausted and depleted, irritable and fat.
This is also a book written with compassion and understanding of the lifelong habits and deep wounds that cause us to fail to care well for ourselves. Marcelle includes a path to open-heartedness towards ourselves helping us to be more aware of the real emotional reasons we put our own self care aside.
And, she makes it easy to approach this daunting task. This is really a 30 day program. There are 30 days of meal plans and recipes for resetting metabolism. She shows us how to get a complete workout without a big investment of time. The diet and exercise guidelines lead to a lean, strong healthy body.
The book also includes simple and easy to implement suggestions for nutritional and herbal support for recovering from exhaustion and restoring and replenishing our health and vitality.
In this valuable user-friendly book Marcelle Pick shows us how to gently turn ourselves towards a life that nurtures and nourishes instead of depletes and exhausts. I would like to tell you to "Run out and get this book now!", but I can hear Marcelle saying..."Slow down, relax. Why don't you just walk, look at the sky, take a few deep breaths and check in with yourself along the way?!!"
