But, if you're constantly under stress, your adrenal glands become taxed. The adrenals are very tiny glands and can get overworked.
Living a busy lifestyle can be stressful. You may not be sleeping enough. You may have a poor diet. You could be consuming too much caffeine. Your blood sugar may be struggling. All of these factors can exhaust your adrenal glands.
How can you give your adrenal glands a break?
- Get more sleep.
- Cut back on caffeine consumption.
- Eat consistently so you aren't skipping meals and gorging. Set alarms on your devices if necessary.
- Eat foods that fuel your adrenals. Stick with lean protein, nuts, avocado, sunflower seeds and sweet potatoes for snacks.
- Relax. Try some yoga or meditation. Get a massage.
