STRESS – the Modern Day Medical Epidemic
Has your life felt out of control lately, with too much to do and too little time to do it? Is your body starting to tell you in little ways — you’re exhausted all day and you can’t get a good night’s sleep — that it’s time to slow down?
You’re not alone. It’s estimated that 43 percent of adults suffer stress-related problems, and that 75 percent to 90 percent of visits to doctors’ offices are for stress-related illness.
Most of us experience a stress-filled situation once in a while. But for some of us, it’s a lifestyle. Stress can affect anyone, from “Type-A” perfectionists to “Type-B” procrastinators who worry themselves sick not getting things done on time.
Wearing multiple hats, constant hyper-tasking, long work hours, not enough fun, jammed packed schedules, overwhelmed students, mothers with several children and little family support, shift-workers, single parents and teenagers with too much on their plates, and unhappy constant emotional turmoil all lead to toxic stress, which creates fatigue, anxiety, mental fog, sleeplessness, depression, irritability, allergies, weight gain, headaches, and exhaustion.
We know that chronic stress is bad for us, especially when we react to it with anger, depression, too much alcohol, excessive shopping, binge eating, or piling on even more stressful activities. We call people with high stress levels “adrenaline junkies,” like it’s a good thing. It isn’t.
But the good news is, you can do something about your stress. Giving your stress glands – the Adrenal’s what they need during the DAYTIME to support your energy, focus, stamina and fat burning, and ability to handle stressful situations and what they need at night to calm down, shut off your busy brain and go to sleep – helping to restore and re-energize for the next day. This precious stress rhythm must be restored to its natural balance in order for you to not only withstand stress but stay healthy and on “top of your game.”
