Adrenally Fatigued Or Just Tired? Where Are You?

Adrenally Fatigued Or Just Tired? Where Are You?

Adrenal fatigue is becoming more common in today’s fast-paced world. Heard the term a few times and wondering what it is and if you might have it?

Constantly exhausted and dragging yourself through the day, relying on jolts of caffeine, sugar and energy drinks to get you through – morning, mid-morning and mid-afternoon? This is a sign your cortisol is too low early in the day, when it should be at it’s highest. It’s meant to wake you up full of life.

 Needing a stiff drink after work to quell the overwhelm, help you relax and get you through the family dinner-bedtime routine? This is a sign your cortisol levels are too high for this time of day and don’t allow for a restful night’s sleep.

Been to the doctor’s saying “why am I so tired?” They run a few labs and do a quick physical. No obvious results come back and you’re told everything’s fine. Perhaps come back in a few months if it doesn’t improve.

In our busy, chronically stressed-out lives, our bodies are pumping out cortisol on a continual basis. We simply aren’t meant to function that way, and it can wear us down and burn us out. To add fuel to the fire, we tend to live on a diet of sugary, processed foods and caffeine. The stress, sugar and caffeine overload can wear down the adrenals as well.

So how do you know if your adrenals are fatigued?

Here is a summary of the stages of stress to help you identify if this is you:

Woman Turning Off Forgetful On Panel

Caught yourself saying, “where the hell did I park the car again?”, “what did I come into this room for?”, “where did I put my keys?” of late.

Well, this is a sign of brain fog. Rest assured you’re not alone, I hear it often these days. It can last a few hours, days or weeks, depending on the cause.
