A very warm welcome to you.
Now, before anything else, take a moment to take a deep breath and reconnect with yourself. Dive into the warmth and peace of the quiet of your breath.
We all know that moment when the challenges and the stresses of life have taken over. The moment when we’ve lost the connection with our inner spirit – the one that thrives on joy, wonder and fun. We know it’s time to regain a sense of well-being.
There are simple ways to tune into what your body and mind need to support your spirit. To work with the life you have now — a place where there is richness and joy just waiting to be remembered. To relax back into your best self, reconnecting to the people and things that mean so much to you. To begin to remember what peace, joy and spaciousness feels like.
I’m Deirdre Walsh. I am here to help you reclaim yourself from the spirit-crushing effects of a stressed out body and a stressed out life. I’ve had a few trips to the land of overwhelm, so you can trust that I’ve walked the talk.
- Have you wondered if there was more to life than the daily grind?
- Do you feel like your body is letting you down when you need it to amp up the energy?
- Are there times when you’re not being your best self with the people who matter most?
- Are you ready for an answer that honors your spirit rather than numbs it out?
Then you are ready for a new approach to overwhelm.
A Mindful Approach to Overwhelm
It feels like all roads have led me to here.
I’m a wife, mother to two incredible teenagers, certified integrative health coach, friend, seeker, chronic fatigue experiencer and mindfulness devotee.
My own struggles with living with fluctuating energy have kept me reading and researching about this amazing companion we’re given at birth — our body. I learned so much about healing with diet, exercise, sleep, and mindfulness during my foundational health coach training at Duke. I learned through my experience with chronic fatigue that you can be giving 110% – even when it looks like nothing is happening.
A sudden uptick in stress can leave you feeling overwhelmed and at sea in your own life. We all have a certain level of overall stress we can cope with. Part of it is genetically coded, part of it is how much stress we have in our life and part of it is how we choose to cope with the challenges of our life.
There are reliable signals that our body sends us when we’re getting closer to burnout. You will be having problems with sleep. Your memory won’t be as reliable as it was. You’ll exercise to feel better and end up feeling depleted. You’ll be gaining weight when you’re cutting back. It will be very hard to regulate your moods. You may have been a steady rock for the people around you, but now you’re snappy and tired a lot. You’ll feel like you need to push through most of the day.
