Easy Tips to Clear Away Adrenal Fatigue
Do you find it hard to get out of bed in the morning or still feel restless even after sleeping? Is it adrenal fatigue?
It is common to feel tired. However, in most cases, tiredness can be quickly relieved by reducing activity in a day or by simply taking a rest. But what if these feelings of fatigue start to negatively impact your work or school performance, and relationships?
The adrenal fatigue theory suggests that prolonged exposure to stress could drain the adrenals leading to a low cortisol state. The adrenals are two small glands that sit on top of the kidneys and produce several hormones like cortisol. When under stress, we produce and release short bursts of cortisol into the bloodstream. The adrenal depletion would cause low energy, depressive mood, lightheadedness, and other vague symptoms.
Here are some symptoms that can be associated with adrenal fatigue:
- aching muscles
- lack of motivation
- daytime drowsiness
- difficulty concentrating
- gastrointestinal problems
Although fatigue is a very common complaint, it is always best to have it treated before it starts to negatively affect your well-being. Here are some ways on how to restore mental alertness or wakefulness when experiencing adrenal fatigue:
