Many factors of twenty first century life are impacting negatively on our quality of sleep and self-restorative functions. The pressure for increased productivity, less than ideal diet, constant technological changes, environmental pollution and unrealistic self expectations mean that a growing number of people are suffering from debilitating and persistent fatigue.
This book explains the body-mind balance and how it can be destabilised resulting in fatigue. It combines practical ways to measure energy levels and identify stressors with concrete suggestions for how to modify habits, detoxify lifestyles and tackle daily challenges head on. The author employs her vast professional and personal experience of conquering Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) to address the physiological and psychological factors affecting our energy levels, from diet and environment, to breathing and the internal workings of our bodies.
This detailed and comprehensive guide offer a fresh outlook for anyone who suffers from general fatigue, stress and conditions such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Sleep Disorders, Adjustment Disorder, Depression and Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction as well as the professionals who work with them.
