UGH. MONDAY , THERE’S A REASON IT IS THE HIGHEST HEART ATTACK DAY OF THE WEEK.
Statistics show more heart attacks happen Monday mornings than any other time.
They say it is the outpouring of stress hormones – even in those that no longer work!
SO WHAT CAN WE DO TO HELP OUR STRESS LEVELS ON MONDAY AND EVERY DAY?
SUPPORT YOUR ADRENALS!
Your Adrenal Glands make your energy hormone called Cortisol.
When you have a lot of stress your adrenals pump out cortisol to give you your get up and go… Unfortunately if this goes on long term they get tired and depleted. It’s called Adrenal Burnout, which is constant fatigue because you no longer have the ability to pump out cortisol. YOU DO NOT WANT TO GET HERE. Before this you may have what we call “Tired and Wired” Syndrome
HERE’S HOW TO FEED YOUR ADRENALS…
- Don’t raise your stess level on Mondays any more than you have to, such as over exercising, getting up early when you can sleep in, etc. etc. Try meditation…(many hyper/driven types are rolling their eyes right now) Meditation can be done while walking – google it.
- Deep breathing in the car, at your desk, etc., – it works.
- Take Adrenal Supplements with Pantothenic Acid, Ashwagandha, Rhodiola, PLUS Adrenal Glandulers!!!:
Ashwagandha is known as an adaptogenic herb, it regulates various systems in our bodies. If cortisol is too high, it acts to lower it, And if cortisol is too low, it acts to raise it. This makes it the IDEAL Monday supplement
Siberian ginseng Used by Russian Olympic athletes to improve their stamina, this herb also increases mental awareness and boosts energy levels. However, just like licorice root it can raise your blood pressure so those with hypertension.
Rhodiola Rosea Popular in Scandinavia and Russia, this herb can help with a wide variety of conditions including muscle tension, poor circulation, depression and fatigue. By improving our circulation it enables us to increase our cortisol production further when we need it.
Glandulars, there is a saying “Like feeds like” in the natural healing world. Take adrenal glandulars to feed your Adrenals. Most Adrenal supplements will have these together.
AND OF COURSE – MEDITATION…For those that feel to hyper to meditate, there is walking meditation and deep breathing.
