Adrenal fatigue is a remarkably common, and unpleasant, modern syndrome. If you are wondering whether you might be at risk, or suffering, from it, do this quiz.
I work with many clients who suffer from adrenal fatigue, and one of the first things they have to learn to do is slow down. We are always being told that exercise will help us manage our stress, but once your adrenals have been overstimulated for long enough, it becomes counterproductive to do the sorts of exercise that stimulate the sympathetic nervous system, like intense cardio, strong weight training and the like.
Nobody really wants to get a bum knee from trying to manage their stress, right?
If you are the kind of person who NEEDS to run (or exercise) in order to feel half-human, you might want to make sure that sartorial of yours is prepped beforehand and stretched afterwards.
Here's my favourite yoga pose for stretching the sartorius muscle. For more good ones, check out the yoga for runners download.
