104 – Heal, Stress Less, and Accomplish More
“Meditation is like putting on reading glasses that you didn’t know you needed, but now everything comes into sharper focus.”
Too stressed and busy for self-care? When we don’t take time for self-care, our to-do list that might have taken us 5 hours before may take us 8 or 9. That stress is actually slowing us down. Worse, women with PCOS are much more sensitive to stress, and as a result, our cortisol levels are elevated, impacting our sex drive, fertility, immunity, inflammation, anxiety, and much more.
Emily Fletcher has reframed meditation as a performance and productivity tool, and her new book, Stress Less, Accomplish More, goes deeply into the neuroscience of why stress makes us stupid, why stress is making us sick, and why stress is slowing us down. Listen in and learn about her 3 Ms: mindfulness, meditation, and manifesting as well as:
- the difference between mindfulness & meditation
- how to get rest that is five times deeper than sleep
- how meditation can help with your PCOS symptoms
