Do you experience any of the following?
❑ Are you chronically tired or easily fatigued?
❑ Are you forgetting details you normally can remember or becoming easily confused?
❑ Do you experience “brain fog,” making it hard to think straight?
❑ Are your dreams restless and unsettling?
❑ Do you wake up frequently at night?
❑ Do you wake up lie awake thinking about your problems, unable to go back to sleep?
❑ Are you easily upset emotionally, crying or losing your temper?
❑ Do you lack enthusiasm or motivation in your life?
❑ Do you have a low sex drive?
If you answer “Yes” to more than four of the above questions you’re in a state old time medical doctors called enervation. Some modern researchers have called it adrenal fatigue. The Chinese might refer to it as a lack of heart fire. But most of us would just say we feel burned out.
When this happens, we know we need rest, but we’re so stressed we can’t even sleep soundly. So, we wind up tired during the day and lying awake at night thinking about our problems. The caffeine most people reach for during the day only makes things worse, and sleeping pills usually don’t result in restful, rejuvenating sleep. So, what can one do?
That’s what we explore in this Sunshine Sharing Hour. We talk about some of the causes of this burned out state and the Nature's Sunshine herbs and supplements you can use that will rekindle that spark of life in you so you can get the sleep you need and have the energy you want. Plus, you’ll be able to think more clearly, feel more relaxed and experience a greater sense of emotional well being. If you feel like your get up and go has gone, don’t miss this month’s Sunshine Sharing Hour.
