Are the pressures of everyday life leaving you exhausted and depleted at the end of the day? Are you struggling to get a good night’s rest? Modern life can be a challenge when you’re juggling competing priorities.
Why am I so tired all the time?
This is truly the catch-cry of every modern woman. No matter how early you go to sleep at night, or how long you lie in bed in the morning, you never seem to feel completely rested.
Sleep is an amazing barometer for what is going on in your body. Sleep is regulated via a complex set of chemical reactions throughout the day, which provide signals to your brain to wind up and down with the rise and fall of the sun.
But while our ancestors’ daily routines were aligned with the sun’s pattern, our modern lives are a little less predictable. Today we have access to electricity, which means that we can continue to work into the night, when normally our body would normally be winding down. We also spend less time outside during the day, which means our natural daytime cues are dulled. This, combined with mobile phones, coffee and erratic work hours can disrupt your body clock, making a good night’s sleep a distant memory.
The compounding effects of a sleepless night
A poor night’s sleep in itself can be a challenge. But sustained sleep disruption can be a completely different matter. Poor sleep can lead to poor food choices, or increased stimulant intake, just to get through the day. These choices, in turn, can heighten your stress levels, leading to elevated cortisol and glucose levels in the blood, the effects of which can influence your mood, weight, digestion, and much more.
