Adrenal Fatigue: Give Your Adrenals a Break
The adrenal glands are your main stress responders. They pump us full of stress hormones and get us ready for action. They also don’t discriminate from physical or perceived mental stress.
Some of my favorite things happen to physically stress the adrenal glands: Strenuous exercise, sauna, cold showers, coffee, fasting, chocolate. These things are amazing and have powerful health benefits to the body in general, they also happen to be very taxing on the adrenals.
Being kind to yourself and giving your adrenals a much needed break from time to time can do wonders for building back your reserves and improving your vitality long term.
