Fatigue is probably the biggest health epidemic faced today, and it’s especially hard on you when your doctor can’t quite seem to figure out how to help you (or worse, tells you it’s all in your mind). Dr. Mary Ann Bauman, Medical Director for INTEGRIS Health, is an expert on fatigue - how to recognize it and how to fight it.
Fight Fatigue offers a plan of action involving six simple steps that can help generate more energy and get you back into the saddle again, enjoying life instead of just “getting through the day.” With examples of her own clinical work with patients, Bauman presents steps involving not just the usual diet and exercise avenues to health, but also the important “inner” work such as changing attitudes, learning to take on less and say “no” more often, changing behaviors that lead to stress and exhaustion, and much more.
This book is filled with good information, and although it is geared towards women, could be used to help anyone suffering from too much to do and not enough energy to do it with! Much of the information has been covered before in other books, but Bauman’s warm style is a nice change from the more technical “text-books” I’ve read about reducing stress and revitalizing the body and mind.
Fight Fatigue is a worthwhile read for women who often multitask themselves sick, and promises great results and positive changes just by focusing on things like improving relationships, learning the power of focus, and basically realizing that you must take care of you first if you ever hope to care for others.
