Having had similar conversations with a number of Clients recently – which is always a gentle hint that it’ll make a good topic for a blog post (!) – it seemed like a good time to share our rather different perspective on illness. One most people have never considered. And that is the amount of energy it takes to be ill. 
Confused? Then read on, it’ll all make sense in a minute. Yes, it will! 
If you’ve been unlucky enough to have Flu – or something similar (!) – the one thing you’re likely to remember above all others, was how exhausted you felt. As one Client so eloquently put it, if someone had offered him a £50 note to get out of bed and go downstairs, he wouldn’t have been able to do it. 
Why is that? 
And, if you’ve never heard of Eckhart Tolle, he wrote the hugely successful book, “The power of Now”. Ah, now it makes sense (!) 
It’s been a while since we’ve devoted a whole post to some of the tricks the Little Monster in our heads uses to keep us stuck in the past. Doing the same things over and over again, with all too predictable results. Not only in terms of the outcome itself but, more importantly, preventing us making changes in our lives. 
There are some things which never seem to change. The schools go back and, right on cue, Summer finally arrives. Or, at least, an Indian Summer. Which, after the very traditional English Summer we’ve “enjoyed” this year, seems even more poignant than usual. Then, quick on their heels, come a spate of calls and emails from Clients looking ahead to the colder months of the year. 
Each year, our advice is basically the same. To focus on the small things you do every day; the majority of which, dare we say, are down to good old fashioned common sense. These help support both your long term health AND that over the coming Winter. Then, having got the basics right, add any necessary top ups. Supplements, tinctures and the like. 
From time to time we all have “one of those days” – or possibly weeks (!) – where nothing quite goes to plan. Or we can’t even seem to do even the simplest thing. And, for some inexplicable reason, it’s usually something we’ve done 100’s or 1000’s of times before without a second thought. Then, out of the blue, we just don’t seem able to do it. The good news is that we will tomorrow – or the next day (!) – when normal service resumes…. 
So, if this is you – or someone you know – then, please, just stop for a minute. 
We all have things happening in our lives that seem to hit a tender spot. Pulling us down, being incredibly frustrating or draining the energy from us. Or, if we’re really unfortunate, all three (!). And, with the ongoing madness, there are so many different things that tick these boxes. Let alone the particular things happening in our own lives. 
From there, it’s only a short step – or fall (!) – to being completely swamped by them. Feeling there’s no way out or that’s just “how it is” with little chance of them getting much better. Doom, gloom and despondency, here we come…
