Fight Fatigue: Six Simple Steps to Maximize Your Energy Jul 16, 2007
It seems that being a woman is synonymous with being overworked and being pulled a million directions. It seems that the reward for hard work is even more hard work but even superwoman gets tired sometimes.
Fight Fatigue recognizes that the modern woman is busy, overwhelmed, and anxious for just a little more energy to get through her hectic day. With this in mind, the author gets straight to the point. The author states that the main problem is not what you do but how you feel about it. Often, when we feel negatively about a task, we start to feel drained. In order to evaluate and then change the way we feel about these draining tasks, the author sets out a six step program. The last step, setting boundaries, is probably the most difficult in this list but by following these six steps in conscientious way, anyone can make improvements in the way they feel about their time, become better organized, and much less stressed.

Why isn't my doctor this cool? Dr. Mary Ann Bauman's book "Fight Fatigue" transcends the usual advice on fighting fatigue as she addresses the core energy drainers: poor self esteem, approval seeking, choices and personal boundaries. She does discuss the importance of diet and exercise but more importantly, identifies the root causes of fatigue. Sharing six steps to identify, understand and change our energy draining behavior, Dr. Bauman gives a practical approach to maximizing our energy.
In Chapter 1, the author hits the nail on the head when she says, "We run the risk of becoming obsessive people-pleasers who constantly require the approval of others - at the risk of our own physical and mental well-being." (p.29) After learning the second step to maximizing your energy, Dr. Bauman discusses the importance of our choices in creating balance, which is just as important, she says, as the amount of things we accomplish each day and the number of hours we sleep. Another gem is telling the truth that we many not want to do something that we need to do to restore our energy but "you just have to do it." (p. 121) I think the author is speaking to me when she says, " By setting reasonable limits or boundaries on what we demand of ourselves and what we allow others to demand from us, we free ourselves from the energy-depleting effects of unreasonable expectations." (p.158)
Throughout the book the author provides examples and stories from her medical practice and personal life that help the reader understand how to incorporate the strategies into their life to maximize energy. My favorite is when she assumed that her family would not support her going for a run when she took a break from unpacking after a recent move. She almost resented them for asking if she was going for a run until she assessed the validity of her interpretation. It turned out that they did not express any negative feelings about her run and didn't even seem to notice she was gone! Her mental and physical energy were enhanced instead of depleted because she challenged an assumption.
This book is for everyone. If you are stressed and need a beginning place, pick up this book. If you have a healthy lifestyle but sometimes feel overwhelmed and tired, "Fight Fatigue" is a perfect read. In the final chapter, the author summarizes the six steps, which creates an easy reference tool for those who want to fight fatigue and maximize their energy on a permanent basis. This book is good medicine for all of us!
Encouragement & Information Apr 1, 2006
Immediately I was drawn into this work when I read that the number one reason women seek medical help is fatigue. I could attest that in my case it was true. Inside of this outstanding work Dr. Bauman identifies many of the culprits that are stealing our energy. Think you know what they are? Think again! I was shocked at how simple and yet how complex these thieves were; I would have never imagined, but here before me on the pages of this book they demanded my attention. You will be amazed at how you are being robbed of energy without even knowing it is happening. The author does not leave you hanging with just the reasons why you are depleted of energy but she gives us six steps to maximize our energy. Now wait, they aren't hard to follow and will take very little of your time. I liked that. This work is written from a woman who knows, besides being a doctor, she also has experienced the same strain on her energy resources as other women have. That was comforting. There is so much information and insight in this work it would be impossible to give it justice in one short review; however one of my favorite sections was the one on the mind-body connection and the effect it has on our well-being. Fascinating to say the least. All in all this is one book every woman will want to have. Besides being a work packed full of knowledge; it is a real moral booster and when you are done with the read you know you are not alone in your struggle against fatigue. You will have a better understanding of what is depleting you of your energy and what to do about it. There is hope for a better tomorrow and this work will give you a helping hand to achieve that goal. Well done, recommended!
