While this is funny (and reminds me of one of my sons on the days he has to go to work), feeling this way in the morning is also a red flag to me when I talk to patients about their morning energy.
In the mornings, our ‘get up and go’ hormone (cortisol) should be at its peak, giving us that pep to get moving, as well as focus and enthusiasm. Cortisol should then taper off gradually over the course of the day and really slow right down at the end of the day, which allows us to unwind and go to sleep...ready for it to rise again in the morning and repeat the process.
The trouble is, stress can really muck this vital hormone around. What I commonly see when I am working with patients suffering from burnout is that this cycle is all out of whack. There is no ‘peak’ happening in the morning, which means it is a struggle to just get out of bed (a clue here is hitting the snooze button repeatedly!). Or, patients will find that they are exhausted at night but feel ‘wired’ and can’t fall asleep - a clear sign that cortisol is peaking at the wrong time.
If this sounds like you, don’t put up with this any longer - it makes maintaining any kind of quality of life very difficult! I’ve helped plenty of patients with this very issue (including myself) and clinically I find it responds well to the right support. Get in touch and book a 1:1 consultation so we can get you on track to feeling better as soon as possible. ... See MoreSee Less

Focusing on gut health, stress management and nutrition, the program supports the body's natural energy production systems, while also using energy-lifting lifestyle and nutritional strategies.
This program is best for people feeling tired without knowing why, anyone experiencing burnout or adrenal fatigue, exhausted mums and those with thyroid problems.
