We all live under stress , however, chronic and intense levels of stress can lead to exhaustion. This can also mean living with a type of tiredness that sleep may not be able to alleviate. If you’re feeling tired All the time, you might need to consult with a healthcare provider. You can also take matters into your own hands and do what you know is right to correct some possible lifestyle habits that are causing you stress and fatigue.
Lifestyle: We all know that sleep is important. Aim for 7-8 hours a night. I know for some of you, that might not be possible. Try your best to make it happen. If you work during night time hours, use sun block curtains and sleep in eye mask during the day, this will help your body go into a more restful state.
Avoid caffeine and processed sugar, they can both act as stimulants that put a strain on your adrenal glands. Try yoga, meditation, t’ai chi or the long walks outdoors.
Although it’s easier said than done, remove people from your life that are causing you stress. You’ll feel so much better.
Nutrition: Stress makes you want to eat comfort foods, try to resist the impulse of reaching for sugar or carbohydrate-filled foods. They’ll wreck havoc on your hormones and blood sugar levels and cause you to stress out even more.
Instead reach for foods like eggs and oily fish as well as dark leafy green vegetables. Choose healthy snacks and if you must have a sugar boost, reach for dark chocolate. It contains mood-boosting flavanols.
Herbs: Herbal remedies such as ginseng help boost stamina and decrease fatigue. Ashwagandha, which is an antioxidant, helps repair the damage caused by stress. Licorice and rehmannia are known to support liver function and restore adrenal function. They are also said to facilitate your body’s normal response to stress while helping keep your adrenal hormones active longer.
Rhodiola is known to help reduce stress and sharpen your memory. We could all use a bit of that. And Elleuthero is known to help increase your energy and support your immune system.
Supplements: Vitamins B5 and B6 also known as pantothenic acid and vitamin C, is temporarily stored in your adrenal glands. Magnesium may help in protecting against anxiety. Studies have shown that people living in conditions of chronic stress experienced depleted magnesium. Because of this, they have needed to supplement with magnesium . Omega 3s have been known to protect your neurons from damage caused by stress.
If you find that after trying on your own to take care of your fatigue and it still won’t lift, schedule an appointment with a healthcare provider that will work with you from a natural/holistic point of view as well as with traditional medicine.
