Avoiding Burnout Naturally with Adaptagens

Avoiding Burnout Naturally with Adaptagens

In today’s episode we are talking all about burnout — how it happens, how to recover naturally, which herbs to take and why meditation helps. I will also cover how long it takes to fully recover, and why so many of us in our culture experience a higher level of stress than ever before. As we mentioned in previous episodes, our society puts an emphasis on “doing” rather than “being” and accomplishment rather than relaxation and rejuvenation. While both are necessary for a balanced and successful life, we’ve seen more cases of burnout and adrenal fatigue than ever before, and I wanted to tackle the subject of which herbs could help those of you who are just plain burned out. Today, I'll be going through the main adaptogens and highlighting their functions when it comes to treating fertility in both men and women, along with their general functions, so you can make an informed choice for your situation.

Doing vs Being

Doing vs Being

“You have a right to perform your prescribed duties, but you are not entitled to the fruits of your actions. Never consider yourself to be the cause of the results of your activities, nor be attached to inaction.”

— Bhagavad Gita Chapter 2 Verse 47

The Yin and the Yang of it ALL

The Yin and the Yang of it ALL

Notice the Taoist symbol for Yin and Yang. The dot of black within white and vice versa denotes that fact that you can’t have one without the other. They are mutually encompassing AND engendering. 

The line in the middle signifies the dance of balance that is always happening between the two. It’s really never 50/50 because all living things are constantly in flux- the idea that change is always certain.

Qi and Consciousness

Remember- you have a body, you have a mind. You are NOT your body. You are NOT your mind. You are the gentle observer that dances between them cataloging everything. THIS is your qi and your consciousness all in one and energy precedes matter always and forever.
