The Key to a Better Night’s Sleep, Starts With Your Adrenals

Thinking about a good night sleep through the lens of the adrenals is a foundational approach to looking at the quality of your sleep.

Your adrenals are supporting you at all times, living up to their name as  first responders, and if you are burning the candle at both ends,  this could be why you’re not sleeping.

How do you know if your adrenals need your attention?

  • Trouble sleeping - waking up in the middle of the night and having a hard time falling back asleep. 

  • Weight gain - especially stubborn weight gain around the middle. 

  • Fatigue - harder to get up in the morning and wanting a nap in the afternoon.

  • Burn out - starting to approach your to do list or day with overwhelm.

  • Blood sugar imbalance - shaky or “hangry’ if you miss a meal.

  • Sugar and Salt cravings - especially later in the day.

  • Low immunity - getting sick more frequently. 

If you can identify with any of those symptoms, particularly if your sleep cycles have changed for the worse, download Mary Sheila’s guide for 5 Daily Steps to Nourish your Adrenals so you can get a good night’s sleep.
