The importance of sleep can’t be overstated. Yet, most Americans don’t get enough of it. With the average adult getting about 5.5 hours of sleep compared to the recommended 7 hours, there’s no secret that we need to do better when it comes to recharging our battery.
Speaking of recharging a battery, that’s exactly what we do when we sleep. Our adrenal glands are like little battery packs that help power quite a few activities that happen in our bodies. If they aren’t recharged periodically then our immune system gets suppressed, our energy dips, and we become irritable.
One of the best ways to recharge these batteries is through sleep. There are other ways to take some stress and pressure off the adrenals, the main opportunity coming through regular chiropractic care. When you get adjusted, the overall stress in the body and nervous system decreases and helps the adrenal glands function better.
Stay adjusted friends.
