Does any of this sound familiar?
- you often feel run down and exhausted?
- you are frequently stressed and overwhelmed?
- every time you tick off one thing on your to do list, there’s another five to add?
- you get grumpy, tired and irritable and sometimes the only solution is to seek comfort in food?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these things, you could have Superwomen Syndrome. So what is it exactly?
Watch the video below to find out.
Superwoman Syndrome is leaping tall buildings while juggling your career, business, family, children, friends as well as your health, fitness and weight control. Yes, it’s trying to fit everything into one single day only to end up tired, stressed out and heading for the refrigerator for support.
We all have busy lives these days and with the help of technology we can be running from dawn to dust, and feel like we haven’t got anywhere.
What this does is sets you up to never feeling truly satisfied, in control or in charge because there is always something else you could be doing.
The other problem is your weight loss motivation will actually start to wane because you probably don’t have time to acknowledge what you have achieved each day. So it won’t take long before you give up on your weight and health goals because it’s all too hard and “you don’t feel motivated”.
Your motivation needs to be ‘fed and watered’ regularly, and one of the ways you do that is to acknowledge what you have achieved each and every day. This way your mindset and motivation will get that little pat on the back it required to return tomorrow and do it all again. Acknowledging even the little things is enough to reboot your motivation and mindset, so remember you don’t have to climb Mount Everest to get the acknowledgement you need to be motivated.
The other way to reduce Superwomen Syndrome is to ask for help… from either a Superman or another Superwoman!
Most Superwomen think they “should” be able to do everything, yet this type of thinking will not support you or your weight loss efforts. Independence is so overrated! What the New Superwoman of today really needs is to be interdependent, so she can have time to play with her other super hero friends.
So, make sure you ask for help and support and that you spend at least five minutes per day acknowledging all your successes (even if they are only little ones).
Up, up and away! Tell us, how are YOU going to deal with your Superwoman Syndrome!
