How does ISO-time relate to Christmas?

Written by Dr Elise Fuller

Not getting better? Feel like your body is falling apart? 

How does this relate to Christmas time??

Are you feeling like you’re falling apart at the moment?

Seemingly simple aches and pains just not recovering as well as you thought they would?

“OK…but how does “right now” relate to Christmas?”

There is a phenomenon that happens right before Christmas. As we know, there’s a huge lead up to Christmas. Workplaces are expecting projects to be completed before the break (because apparently the world doesn’t continue as normal in the new year ), and everyone is stressed and under pressure.

Then add on the rush to organise Christmas Day with all the family. The preparation, the shopping… aka stress central! So it comes as no surprise that we treat a few stressed out people before Christmas, and their bodies may take a little longer than expected to recover.

If you’ve ever seen me before Christmas, you’ve probably heard me tell you that come Boxing Day, you’ll probably feel just fine.

Why? The stress is over. You have calmed down, you’ve had a good time.

Christmas was a success!

But how does this relate to this moment in time??  

Right now, you may be feeling like everything is broken, and everything hurts, and you’re not getting better. Or perhaps you’ve just injured yourself “for no apparent reason”.

The atmosphere right now has the feel of the week before Christmas. We’ve been in this iso game for a bit now, and it’s getting old.

We’re fatigued. We’re stressed. And a fatigued and stressed body is more susceptible to pain and injury.

Unfortunately, we don’t know when the iso version of Boxing Day is coming. It’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. But I can assure you that you are not the only one not feeling 100% right now.

So remember to be kind to yourselves during this time.
