Do You Feel Stressed, Wired, & Wake Up Exhausted?
Do you find yourself reaching for coffee, sugary snacks, alcohol? Do you rely on sleep aids to manage stress? When we live day to day in a high stress state we are forcing our adrenal glands to produce excess cortisol which signals our body to enter a heightened state of emergency. As a result, it impacts the many functions in our body – our immune function, digestion, and sleep. Also, it can interfere with hormones, increase blood pressure, mess with blood sugar, increase excess abdominal fat, and inflammation. This can compromise our overall health including our moods and even our sex drive. You may experience allergies and over exhaustion.
Symptoms to look for:
High/Low Blood Pressure
Intense food cravings
Weight changes-primarily an increase in abdominal fat
Lack of motivation, extreme exhaustion
Feeling wired or jittery
Anxiety, feeling overwhelmed, unable to cope with daily tasks
Mentally foggy-inability to stay focused
Low immune system
Trouble falling asleep, staying asleep, or waking up exhausted
Eating a whole foods, plant-based diet rich in colorful veggies, leafy greens, low-glycemic fruits, 100% whole grains, seeds, nuts, beans, legumes, and plenty of water
We live in a chaotic modern world that can impact our health in a variety of ways. There are things we can do in our daily life to improve the way we feel and how we operate day to day.
