Rushing Woman’s Syndrome

I am not sure whether I should take it as a compliment or not when a man friend of mine bought me the book aptly titled “Rushing Woman’s Syndrome” – perhaps they knew something that I didn’t.  It’s a book written by Dr Libby Weaver who talks about the stress that woman’s lives are constantly under through always being in a hurry, and the repercussions this poses on both our biochemical and emotional state.

One of the first things this book asks you to do is a quick survey on whether you are actually a ‘rushing woman’ or not.  I was thinking that perhaps the fact I read the book in two weeks may mean that I am not a top contender as I obviously do have some spare time  (contrary to what my friends may think).  In fact it would appear that I was right – my score would have you believe that I am not a woman in a hurry, or perhaps my natural state is always just to be busy.  Who would know?

The book is broken down into such areas as the Thyroid, Pituitary, Digestive, Endocrine and Nervous System with a separate chapter on the Emotional.  It most certainly challenged me in regards to what I feed my body and my addiction to sugar/sweet foods as well as the importance of thinking positively and starting the day in a ‘grateful’ state of mind.  Having had a good friend die recently of cancer, who was not what I would have called a ‘rushing woman’ but someone who was fit, healthy and positive really affected me.  It made the book and its message even more relevant on a personal level.

It further talks about the fact that we don’t get all the nutrients we need from what we eat nowadays; we tend to consume more processed foods and lead more sedentary lives surviving on coffee to start the day and perhaps a glass of wine to relax at the end.  We rely too much on doctors giving us prescriptions to make us feel better, rather than listening to what our bodies need and perhaps taking a more holistic approach to our health.  However, at the end of the day we all have choices in regards to how we want to look after ourselves and our body.  Everyone is different.  If anything for me it was a wake-up call and a reminder to take more care to ‘look after myself’.

“Rushing Woman’s Syndrome” was a really informative and easy read that would suit women of all ages, and I guarantee you will find something useful to help keep you healthy, happy and of course relaxed in a ‘non-rushing’ way for many years to come.  Happy Reading ….

I fell into the art of style quite by accident. There was no defining moment when I decided that I knew what I wanted to do. I want people to feel good about themselves. Many don’t know where to shop and/or how to wear fashion. It has never been solely about cost, but of finding quality at a reasonable price and being able to wear - to suit your own figure, style and fashion. Join me as we explore – What is Style?

  1. Hey Diane great to hear that you got the book as a gift and hope you manage to get some time to read it …

    • Arcadia Bookstore in Osborne Street is great to find all sorts of interesting books and the owner is really helpful so definitely check it out when next in Newmarket. It was such a good book that I bought it for 2 of my friends to read.
