DO YOU struggle to get out of bed in the morning? Are you often tired? Do you rely on things like coffee or sugar to get you going?
I suspect a lot of you do and just think that it’s normal. Actually it can be a sign of a problem called adrenal exhaustion. Other symptoms of adrenal exhaustion include low mood, frustration and anxiety, poor concentration, poor sleep and exhaustion.
Adrenal exhaustion is caused by long term, or a lot of, stress.
This may be stress as we usually define it – work, life, family, money – anxieties and frustrations building up. But it may also include traumas, bereavements, illnesses or operations – these are all things that your body has had to cope with and recover from which may have left it depleted and struggling to catch up.
