Extreme Fatigue? Feel better – Fast Resource List

Don't let extreme fatigue keep you down.

Extreme fatigue is easy to overlook in winter. Who doesn’t choose the couch over going out in the cold? Who doesn’t feel sleepier when the days are long and dark? Who doesn’t want to hide under the covers when that alarm goes off? BUT when Spring arrives and the spring in our step and mood – doesn’t – it is time clean our house and clear out any and all fatigue causing culprits.

One cause of extreme fatigue is a condition called Adrenal Fatigue. It affects over 80% – yes 80% – of all Americans at some point in their lives. Maybe you’ve just had a baby, or a promotion, or moved, or lost a home, or started business school … The good thing about Adrenal Fatigue is that it is easily treatable. The bad thing is that if it is untreated for too long it can be come very difficult to eliminate.

For an excellent article on Adrenal Fatigue I recommend this write up by Kathy Browning, Are You Constantly Tired? You May Be Suffering from Adrenal Fatigue. It covers everything from adrenal fatigue symptoms to recovery recommendations.

Tired all the time?

Boost-energy. Eliminate fatigue and insomnia. How? Sleep.

Tired all the time? Time to learn how to sleep tight all night.

Tired all the time? Time to learn how to sleep tight all night.

There is one major reason why so many of us are tired all the time. Crappy sleep a.k.a. insomnia. This feel-good thief sneaks up on me just like it sneaks up on you. By Friday I am a mess unless I’ve been up to my favorite insomnia-busting tricks …

1. The 10:00 p.m. bedtime hour. It is critical that people with fatigue and sleep problem be in bed and well on their way towards sleep by 10:00 p.m. Why? There is a dreaded adrenal gland “second wind” that kicks in around 11:00 p.m. and it launches an exhausting two to three hour cycle of insomnia.  Let me say this another way so you really get it.

If you don’t want to toss and turn and huff and puff in frustration until 1:00 or 2:00 a.m. you must be sound asleep before 11:00 p.m.

2. The 7:00 to 9:00 a.m. snooze. This may seem like the impossible dream. Start with a Saturday or Sunday. Then make it every Saturday and Sunday. Make deals with your spouse, friend, neighbor …

According to Dr. James Wilson, author, Adrenal Fatigue The 21st Century Stress Syndrome, “There is something magical about the restorative power of sleep between 7:00-9:00 in the morning for people with adrenal fatigue.” Sometimes I’ll get up early – do what I need to do – and go back to bed during this time. As often as possible I’ll sleep in on weekends to tap into this magic.

3. The 2:00 p.m. Power Nap.  According to Dr. Lynn Hasher this is not luxury, it is the “best time of the day” to take a break and refresh our bodies and our brains so that we can be incredibly productive for the rest of the day. (Tell that to your boss and co-workers.) So, go to your car, close the door to your office — do whatever you need to do and slip a power nap into your day.
Psst. This is my problem-solving time of the day. I put out a question or request to my angels, shut my eyes and wake up fifteen minutes later with a solution. Amazing.

Three of my favorite sleep inducing resources:

* Inspirational Books: Always end your day, in bed with an inspirational book chapter (not a murder mystery thriller.)
For topics oriented to love and relationship please visit the Get Ready For Love Booklist. For mind/body health and inspiration there is the Fatigue Be Gone Reading Room.

* Healing Music: Soothe your mind and body while you sleep with Dr. Weil’s Self-Healing with Sound and Music CD

* Experiment with your sleeping “arrangements.” Do what you need to do. Rearrange your bedroom. Change your sheets. Get rid of any and all sleep obstacles even if doing so makes you feel mean and unloving. In the past three years I’ve gone from a husband, a dog and a bird to the same husband, six dogs, 3 cats and a bird. My bed has become a tad crowded.

Could that be contributing to recent spats of insomnia? Last night I ran an experiment and kicked all the cats and dogs OFF the bed. I didn’t kick off my husband but he kindly took his hacking cough into anther bedroom. Anyway … I slept and slept and slept and woke up this morning like the happy woman in the Ambian commercials minus the side affects or potential health problems.
So my friend, give this a whirl over the weekend and drop me a note on Monday. I’d love to hear how it works (or doesn’t) for you.
