Let’s Talk Thyroid Symptoms:
low motivation + hashimotos
It’s hard when everything is running slowly to have the energy to… well to do anything!!
In the post about constipation, I mentioned that underactive thyroid is often described as having a ‘sluggish’ thyroid. It’s hard to get out of bed, go for a walk, start a new project, meal plan, change your diet, read, investigate, get help… when you’re tired, not thinking clearly and feeling flat.
Yet somehow we go on. If you’re normally a motivated get-$hit-done kind of person and you find yourself un-motivated on an increasing level, it could be a sign something isn’t right with your thyroid. Use your intuition. Get things checked out! Even if you have little motivation, what little you have, use it to get yourself some help.
🌀 Start small. 1 thing at a time. 1 thing for 30 days. Make it a habit. (Atomic Habits by James Clear is a great book on this if you have the motivation!!)
👩⚕️ If you aren’t actively working on your thyroid health yet, start by getting a good team of professionals to support you. I find a good integrative GP and naturopath are the backbone to my health team.
😉 That’s all I’m giving you! Don’t want overwhelm to couple with low motivation! There are other things, but start small.
