The last few days have been intense…

“You need a healthy body to live your dreams.
Jennifer Hough


Have you ever felt overwhelmed and just thought, “What the…?” I did yesterday. It seriously doesn’t happen often, so the feeling stood out.

I was detoxing the past few days, but didn’t realize it.

Not only that, I had a day of meetings.

I had to have two big-girl conversations (the kind that I dread) with two people I care about.

Oh, and relationship stuff is always evolving… so there’s that.

Let’s just add a full moon into the mix, and ya, it’s a lot.

Nuff said.

So one of the symptoms of something I call “Low Organ Cushion”, and taxed adrenals, is shortness or grumpiness or reactivity. (Another is bloating, which I also started to feel… that’s always fun when you are already grumpy, right?)

Inside, I could feel it, and generally the people closest to you feel it from you, too. (Thank you so much to Jeannie Selda and Susannah Hansen for making me laugh today and keeping it real… I so love you guys, and appreciate you more than you know.)

Kind friends do not cure reactivity, they just assist you to see the humor of it.

The stuff that actually reverses adrenal and organ overload is something completely different, and I feel so blessed to have a PhD in that department.

What frustrates me is that most people just write the symptoms off to stress or aging. Science shows that you can reverse any or all of these symptoms.

I just feel like, of any time in history, now is the time to take our power back about our healthcare.

We’ve had almost three years of intense overload, and maybe that was already happening for you before. Everyone knows that your mind affects your body… but how do you harness that?

Most people, I have noticed, get confused over which food changes even matter, because we all have our opinions, and it all seems too hard and overwhelming. It’s not!

There are three glands and organs that, if they were your priority, getting old before your time would be a thing of the past; but, nobody measures the numbers that help us know what to do.

And yes, I already did my thing, corrected my course, knew the nutritional stuff to get my energy and mood back, and now I’m headed for a big ole’ bike ride in the mountains to see my neighbor’s donkey (he’s so friggin cute!).

Just know there is hope.

Final thought. Our families, our dreams, our passion and our future need a body that is filled with life and confidence. That is such a priority for me.

I cannot wait to show you how to take your power back, anti-age your brain, and bring back the body you know you can have. Let’s do it together.

See you Monday, June 27th (I cannot recommend this Adrenal Reset workshop enough!)

With love,
Jennifer

BAM! Yep, this happened.

BAM! Yep, this happened.

I had a client ask me last night, “When are all these challenges and triggers going to end so we can get back to normal?”. Newsflash. This is our new normal. So much change is being catalyzed these days, and if you get into emergency mode, it is easy to want to protect yourself and others, to hide, to “carry” your family, or those you love or even yourself.

Here’s something to consider this morning: Just because you’re there for others, doesn’t mean you are necessarily helping them. It depends on whether you’re giving from your overflow and your inspiration, or you are “carrying” them. It may even be that you’re not authentically trying to help them; maybe, just maybe, you’re trying to make your own self feel better because you don’t like the way they’re being or behaving.

I have most certainly carried people I care about at some point in my life. It’s as though I thought that I had the power to make someone else happy. It is so clear to me at this point that no one can make anyone else happy. In fact, doing that can leave the other person(s) powerless to do it for themselves.

Are you leaving space for the miraculous?

Are you leaving space for the miraculous?

I’m not sure if anyone ever truly gets that I am definitely in the programs that I teach, even though I am facilitating. And I am! Half the things that get discussed are perfectly suited for helping me find more freedom, meaning, and flow, too. Saturday’s Get Out of Your Own Way™ program was no exception.

Sunday I woke up with my head stuffy, feeling heated, and an achy body. Uh oh. Adam just had the c-flu; maybe I have it, too?

My word for the year, and…

My word for the year, and…

I was just wondering why Spaciousness was my word this year.

We are now almost half way through the year (can you believe it?) and so much is up for renewal!

Take my body for instance. I notice immediately when it is in Overwhelm, because my cravings go up, neck tension starts, I get a little reactive, and my creativity goes out the window. If I partake in Overwhelm long enough, I even gain weight… ugh. My body is a perfect barometer of where I am.

These five symptoms are representative of about 15 other symptoms of adrenal fatigue, and even a sluggish thyroid. At first when I feel the symptoms, I hear myself saying, “Really?” Then I realize and remember that I have a deep knowing of how to bring myself back to the state of energized inspiration.
