"I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired." ~ Fannie Lou Hamer
Fatigue is much more than just feeling tired. If you are feeling exhausted to the point that your are struggling with daily activities, it is time to look deeper. Your body is telling you that something is wrong and it needs more than just sleep to get back into the swing of things.
Isn't getting more sleep all I need to feel better?
No! Not when fatigue is consistently impacting your life. Cortisol levels, which are affected by stress, can disrupt your body's sleep cycles and rob you of quality sleep. Hormones can negatively affect sleep cycles also, especially if you are not making enough.
If I give it more time, will my insomnia go away on its own?
Maybe. Insomnia is a symptom, not a medical condition. This is why sleep aids often compound the issue...they address the symptom, not the cause. You have to find out what is causing your sleeplessness. This can include elevated cortisol levels and other dysfunctional hormone levels.
Is there something I can do to alleviate my brain fog?
Yes! Brain fog is a sign of a deeper, underlying problem. Your diet is the first thing to examine. Food sensitivities, nutrient deficiencies, and environmental toxins can slow down your brain activity and thought processes. Next, explore your hormone and adrenal function. Imbalances in these areas can cloud your thinking and memory too!
