You’re always on the go, and often people remark on your boundless levels of energy. You may be restless, finding it hard to relax and be in the present moment. Patience doesn’t always come naturally; in fact, you usually want things done yesterday, so slow-moving queues and traffic hold-ups are your worst nightmare.
Although you seem to have lots of energy, you also need to cultivate more wellbeing as this personality type can be vulnerable to anxiety or burnout.
If you’re a Dynamo, then you’re not alone! Modern life requires us to fire on all cylinders and most of us can only manage that level of intensity for so long before problems arise. Irritability, losing patience over small things or problems sleeping are all common phenomena when your body is stuck in overdrive. Here are some tips to help ground the Dynamo:
Try to reconnect with the earth when you can: grounding, wild swimming, sitting in sunlight, going for a walk, having an extended cuddle with a loved one or pet can provide therapeutic relief
Belly breathing can quickly switch on the ‘rest and digest’ part of the nervous system
Humming or singing activates the vagus nerve which can calm the brain
GABA, 5-HTP, L-theanine, glycine, magnesium and other nutrients may be helpful
Eat nutrient-dense foods regularly to prevent the ‘Dynamo’ spilling over into ‘hangry’
Living Nutrition has created a unique herbal blend comprising a combination of lavender, ashwagandha and lemon balm: traditional herbs used for thousands of years to calm the nervous system and restore balance to an overactive state.
Lavender is a fragrant herb and flower beloved of bees and contains precious oils, antioxidants, and sensory compounds. Ashwagandha is an adaptogen that can modulate the body’s response to stress. Lemon balm is a natural carminative and may support ‘nervous’ digestion.
These herbs work together in synergy to support a calmer outlook and are perfect for busy days when you need to keep a cool head.
