Publisher's Summary

Do you often feel overwhelmed, and in a daily battle to keep up? That you rarely get on top of your to-do list, and at times feel out of control and unable to cope? If so, you may be experiencing the first signs of rushing woman's syndrome....

Never before have women been in such a hurry to do so many things and be there for so many people. The pace of modern life has drastically increased - but even though our minds can go faster and technology allows us to get more done, our bodies still have cavewoman-like biology - which means they cannot respond healthily to the new and constant pressures we experience. In this book, nutritional biochemist Dr. Libby Weaver explains how a stressful, fast-paced lifestyle can have dangerous effects on all areas of a woman's health, including:

  • Nervous system - how an imbalanced nervous system may be causing you to gain weight and disrupting your sleep
  • Adrenal glands - why adrenal fatigue may be making you feel tired but wired
  • Reproductive system - how your daily stresses may be affecting your menstrual cycle or fertility
  • Digestive system - why stress could be at the heart of your bloating, cravings or unpredictable appetite
  • Emotions - how your emotional landscape holds the key to leading a fulfilling life without the need to rush

Inspired by Dr. Libby's clinical experiences and her empathy for women and the many roles they now juggle, this audiobook offers real solutions to restore your health so that you can stay both productive and healthy.

Sorry but narrator is awful

Returned this book in first 3 minutes. Doesn’t sound like a professional narrator. Book content sounds excellent but there’s no way I could manage 6.5hrs of such uninspiring narration. And for a book about trying to stop rushing, she’s reading it too fast (but slowing narration speed sounds awful). Will buy the hard copy instead.

Very monotonous

This book was not for me . The narration was monotone and left me bored with the content.
I did not like this book - not for me and would not recommend.
Boring narration. Felt like she was reading a list .
Read many self help books this was probably my least favourite and got nothing from it .

So far....

Slowing down the speed of the delivery would be a good idea, as the pace is like that of the title. As I am one of these rushing woman, for several years, a smooth narration to deliver a more relaxing 'story' maybe better for the listener to absorb the content. I am not sure I can listen to six hours. An author may write fab content - but not necessarily great at narration.

I think that authors often are better served by having a professional narrator deliver the content - especially with some of the fabulous voices from the ABC radio, may get the story across.

The narration was way too fast

For a book about rushing women, the narration was way too fast. It stressed me out rather than made me feel empowered.
Some good information in here but a few parts lost me when they moved into slightly woo woo territory, like imagining the moon from the moonlight filling my ovaries.

Seriously Insightful

Thank you Dr Libby for putting this into an audiobook. The result of my RWS is that I can only find minimal time to read, but have plenty of time to listen.

Seriously incredible content!

Eye opener

I loved listening to this whilst I breathed, excercised and stopped for a tea. It opened my eyes as to why I was the way I was and have already made decisions for myself for the better. I have reccommended this daily to the women in my life, as it was recommended to me.

Brilliant

I absolutely loved listening to Dr Libby. Her explanations are great and easy to follow. I related to far too much of the content in this book but the knowledge I gained is forever valuable. I look forward to exploring more books by Dr Libby Weaver.
