Empowerment of Women

Yesterday in the University of Limerick, I attended a conference on the Empowerment of Women this was led by Dr Mary Ryan.  As an endocrinologist Mary is dealing with women with hormone imbalance on a daily basis and hormones control all muscles as well as the immune system.  Here’s an extract ‘Unfortunately because women of all ages lack self-esteem and self-belief they are constantly multitasking too much and burning out which is a major cause of hormone imbalance, adrenal fatigue, chronic fatigue, infertility and irritable bowel syndrome.’

I learnt so much on how my body works, we were presented with cases to show the similarities of conditions between women in their 30’s and 40’s.  The facts around the menopause, how the pituitary gland ‘master gland’ works and the rapid growth of obesity.

I’m not a medical professional, I do however want to learn the health challenges women are having as a result of low self-esteem and lack of self-care.

I had to learn to take care of myself as I was burning out and I mean learn.  My daily routine is a discipline now, it might seem extreme the word discipline but I’ve learnt from yoga and the practice of ‘loving kindness’ meditation that these are positive habits to preserve my mental and physical health.

Everything I write about is geared towards things that I deeply care about. My greatest strengths are in topics about health and wellness. I’ve been fortunate enough to take my passion for holistic wellness (yoga, reiki, meditation) and follow my dream to bring balance into my daily life. I've been a finance and risk manager of the national tourism body, headed up the operations team of a golf management company, board trustee of an international NGO. I learnt a lot about business management and mentoring teams through change. As a Chartered Management Accountant (CIMA), Corporate Social Responsibility Practitioner and Project Manager, I’ve been fortunate to make a living doing something I love providing business supports and consulting. I got into holistic health and wellness because I wanted to help people. It is my hope that my blog will encourage people to reflect on what's important to them, step out of the comfort zone and create something great. At the end of the day, the goal of improved health and wellness is to be able to create a quality of life that makes life enjoyable. Business is the same way. As business owners, we want to create something great while being able to provide ourselves a good living while enjoying what we love. Feel free to reach out to me on advice about health and wellness and business. It is my desire to help everyone find their passion (dharma).
