Are you suffering from Superwoman Syndrome? If something doesn’t change in your life how will things look in 5 years?
Superwoman syndrome is when we neglect ourselves because we are seeking to do it all !! Recognise anyone? Not yet, read on.
Do you have?
- Bouts of irritability
- Memory issues
- Inability to concentrate
- Aches and pains
- Sweating when not active
- Inability to sleep well or sleeping too much
If you recognise any of these in your life you may be on the verge of a crash, just because you are not taking care of yourself.
We live in a culture where we feel that in order to be worthy of love we must be perfect at everything, perfect at work, perfect at parenting, perfect at being a lover and have a perfect size 10 and a perfect house to show everyone how absolutely perfect we are!
THIS IS NOT REALISTIC – NOBODY IS PERFECT
However, we as women have this huge weight that we carry around with us all day every day trying to achieve this perfection. And it is negatively affecting our health and wellbeing, it is worth it? Is there another way?
The answer is yes! Because there simply has to be another way. Why? Because this is not sustainable for anyone.
As women, we make a decision that in order to be successful we have to do it all alone, “because nobody will do it the way I do it”. We are busy running around all day every day not even getting 30 minutes out of the entire 24 hours to ourselves. What do you think this is doing to us? It is causing stress and what does stress do, well it won’t take you long to look up the negative effects of stress on our bodies and on our mental health and the answers are unspeakable.
So I will ask you again, if something doesn’t change in your life in the next 3 years how will things look.
If you could make that chance and you could to be the same effective, and efficient person but with joy and vitality and good health would you do it? If the answer is yes, now is the time, contact me for the chance to achieve this life-altering change.
