International Moment of Frustration Scream Day
It’s silly because people dealing with adrenal fatigue have more frustration than other people because of two reasons: personality and a shortened fuse.
Let’s look at reason 1: personality
Personality traits that are otherwise handy or are the hallmarks of being great person increase your risk of developing adrenal fatigue. If you find yourself reacting to stress with frustration, your personality may put you at risk for developing adrenal fatigue. These traits include:
- Highly responsible/dependable
- Driven/high achiever
Hey–who says my fuse is short?
Having adrenal fatigue means that your stress response system is always “on” in fight, flight, or freeze mode. This makes you less able to adapt to stress. That, coupled with the fatigue, anxiety, insomnia, and other symptoms of adrenal fatigue add up to a short fuse on your frustration bomb. Except that because of your great personality traits you don’t want to bother others &/or let people know just how frustrated you actually are. So the pressure builds.
Let’s let it out with a scream this Saturday
So if adrenal fatigue is an issue in your life, let’s celebrate International Moment of Frustration Day! Celebrate by going outside this Saturday, October 12 at 12:00 Greenwich mean time and screaming to your heart’s content (or 30 seconds).
Unless you’re too tired to get off the couch because of adrenal fatigue let alone scream…then join us in spirit 🙂
