Adrenal Stress and Your Sleep
If you feel an abnormal amount of stress in your life, you will no doubt realize that it will affect your sleep. This can form a complicated pattern because both issues tend to affect one another.
People who sleep poorly will naturally feel more stressed during the day. Whenever you feel this kind of stress, it will invariably disturb your sleep at night. . For people with Adrenal problems, this could be even worse.
What you need to realize is that you tend to sleep in cycles. The longer you sleep, the more cycles that you can enter during the night. Some phases of these cycles can eliminate stress from the body naturally.
This is the reason why many doctors tend to place an emphasis on getting as much sleep as possible to get on the restorative cycle or the REM. You want to ensure you can get this kind of sleep yourself, especially if you are a highly stressed individual.
There are some individuals who tend to be just burnt out and lack energy throughout the day. Others may feel high levels of energy but are feeling pushed to their limits. Monitoring energy levels may help you moderate them so you can feel better throughout the day. Make sure you take a look at the section on monitoring activation energy and recovery energy.
Finally, pay close attention to how the Adrenal gland circuits in your body tend to store stress. If you have overactive Adrenal circuits, you may notice that you tend to feel more stressed overall.
There are many different strategies you may want to use to cope with these issues. This advice from Dr. Berg can change the quality of your sleep and reduce the stress you feel in your life.
