I picked this book up at my library for 1 because the title pretty much screamed at me I m Tired of Being Tired has been my mantra almost every day for the past year and while I knew something had to change, I couldn t figure out exactly what, or find the motivation to start This book gave me both of the things I needed direction and motivation I don t think I will implement everything that this book recommends, mostly because it would be too difficult, and too expensive However, the concepts in here jive with so many other research studies, that don t necessarily target adrenal burnout, but other areas for physical and psychological improvement, that it s not difficult for me to get on board with many of their recommendations Additionally, the authors don t actually push following their recommendations to the letter, but instead recommend you implement what you can most easily do, and build upon that as you are able and willing There is a lot of discussion and focus on how small changes will make a big difference and the important thing is not doing exactly what they recommend, but absorbing the gist and just getting started They offer ways to follow them to the letter if you are so inclined, but at no time did I feel pressure to do so, or get the impression that if I didn t the program would fail The arguments in this book finally convinced me to drop caffeine, something I have been meaning to do for over a year now, and if I get nothing else out of this, I truly believe that will make enough difference for me to begin feeling better They didn t convince me by berating me for drinking coffee though, they did it by recommending ways to make it easier, and steps to follow so that I phase it out and not feel miserable along the way And of course they motivated me to do so by telling me what it s doing to my system and how it s contributing to my feeling of tiredness, something I already knew but can never hear enough when I m trying to quit I won t say it s been easy, but it s sure easier than it may have been without their recommendations, and that s good enough for me.I really liked this book and fully intend to implement many of the recommendations made in it Some of them I ve already started, and others will need to wait until I m ready for change If you re looking for a way to feel better, I highly recommend you read this book and consider their suggestions Just in making a few changes in my eating sleeping habits, I ve already started to feel better, and THAT is what gave me the courage to take the plunge and quit caffeine I can only imagine how good I ll feel when that step is complete This book changed my entire outlook on diet, health and fitness She advocates eating only real, whole food as oppossed to processed junk, which granted isn t revolutionary, but she got me thinking about this topic in ways I never had before I read all the time about eating whole foods and how whole foods are so good for you, but not until I read this book did I understand exactly what whole foods are and why they are good for you I ve been trying to make all my own food ever since I wanted to look into adrenal fatigue after reading about it on Crystal s blog, so I picked up Tired of Being Tired since the library had it I have some of the symptoms listed, and felt like lots of the advice was good cut sugar, reduce caffeine, sleep , don t over exercise but some of it was flat out weird When the rationale for using some sort of magnet therapy is that Cleopatra wore a magnet on her forehead to reduce signs of aging, you ve lost me I mean, even if Cleopatra did wear a magnet on her head, I think the asp got her before we could really draw anti aging conclusions, right If you can take the good and leave the weird, this book might be a good choice Otherwise, go forth and do the good you know you ought to do anyway Originally posted here A decent read that just reinforces what I ve always believed those who thrive in lifestyles that are filled with constant stress will eventually face the consequences.adrenal burn out according to this author The basic premise is that our adrenal glands are working overtime though adrenaline was only supposed to rise during life or death situations Believable.The author recommends eating whole foods, getting plenty of sleep than 6 hours , exercising in moderation but not OVER exercising , taking vitamins supplements and taking part in relaxing activities All n all, there s no groundbreaking information in this book, but a good reminder to SLOW DOWN and practice healthy living for longevity. Lots of information, clearly laid out Honestly, a bit overwhelmed by the lists, but that s not because they are confusing Appreciate that suggestions are made for different levels of adrenal fatigue as someone at the worst level, it s good to have a plan for how to adjust as I improve Makes me feel hopeful Lots of references There s a fair bit on breathing and meditation I m working the breathing practices into my day I sometimes use the Breathe2Relax app, which is free Meditation is a harder sell for me it tends to trigger PTSD However, I just started Happiness Essential Mindfulness Practices by Thich Nhat Hanh and some of his meditations have phrases to coincide with the breath and that might work better. Not bad It s a well rounded and informative book if you haven t already dug into this topic If you have, then a lot of the information would be repetitive If you haven t, use this as a starting point. Good This was an ok book, it was not bad, just not what I thought it was Good writing, Great for others just not for me That being said, does not mean that this is not a great book for someone else. This book is challenging, particularly to someone who qualifies by all her metrics as a Driven Perfectionist However, it s what I needed to read right now.Some of the reviewers have said that this book is basic common sense, but I beg to differ These small changes are not small at all, they re enormous and difficult shifts in thinking for me I m adrenaline addicted I could have told you this before the book and LOVE pressure I set up projects specifically anticipating the time crunch, late nights, caffeine and exhilaration of making it by deadline I started reading this book at the same time I decided to do a huge project NaNoWriMo and realized I was doing it again, despite my lip service to cutting back on stress I ve got to acknowledge I m in recovery.The 10 Simple Solutions aren t simple, especially for someone who has reached the Burned Out stage The authors understand what they re asking is going against the very nature of the people they re writing to, thankfully The book encourages us to implement what we can In the past two weeks, I ve been eating like crazy, while cutting out coffee and anything else stimulating I ve slept in when I could, and gone to bed by 10 30 most nights I have been taking naps or at least spending 30 minutes meditating every day This may sound relaxing and enjoyable to some, but to me, it s TORTURE On top of all that I need to chillax about the fact that it s torturous and just relax and enjoy it I suspect the same is true of anyone who truly needs this book It s than changing diet and activity It s examining your very way of life It HURTS to read that with all of your efforts to be the best you possible, you re actually tearing yourself down Just be prepared for that sting when you look at yourself from this perspective.The supplement chapter is especially complicated, and it is partly outdated already Also, I m supposed to cut back on work hours, but somehow find the for all of this Sure, okay Some of the suggestions aren t readily available The book is fairly repetitive and talks down to the reader sometimes I wasn t fond of the pronunciation guides, especially , but these are minor quibbles On the whole, a needful book for me.
