We’re a nation of sleepyheads. Up to 15% of Americans struggle with extreme fatigue and an estimated 30% of doctor’s visits are related to feeling tired all the time! If you know you’re getting enough sleep but are still sleepy, this could be why you’re always tired.
You’re Stressed Out
The connection between poor sleep and stress can be a cyclical one. Being too busy during the day can lead to stress and leave you lying in bed awake when you finally do get a chance to rest because you are overstimulated and overworked.
We may not be able to erase stress, but we can help our bodies manage it! With healthier eating and the help of supplements like Bliss® & Turn Down, you can give your body and brain the support they need so you can hit the ground running. *
You’re Not Breaking a Sweat
It’s a vicious cycle: Not sleeping leaves us stressed, stress makes us feel exhausted, we skip working out. Ironically, skipping that workout can leave you feeling more stressed and more tired!
Sound like you? Well, we’ve got good news! A study by the University of Georgia found that regular, low-intensity exercise can help boost energy levels. So, you don’t need to have the energy for a 1-hour HIIT class to feel the benefits!
Your Gut Isn’t Healthy
Gut health is just now beginning to get the attention it deserves. It helps in regulating emotions, maintaining energy, supporting healthy immunity, and yes, even helping with sleep!
The relationship between sleep and the microbiome is a two-way street. Our microbiota affects how we sleep and that lack of sleep affects the health and diversity of the bacteria (good and bad) that live in our gut.
Stocking your plate with gut-happy foods like veggies and fermented foods can help, but you can also support your gut health through supplementation! After all, nobody’s perfect. If your gut is to blame for lack of sleep, try adding in some Digestive Enzymes, Probiotics 10, or Complete Greens!*
