2 Ways Stress Causes Insomnia

Cortisol is a hormone released from the adrenal glands and it’s main job is to put us to sleep and wake us up. When we stay up too late, work too many hours, work a job we hate, stay in dysfunctional relationships or spend our time with people who do not bring joy to our lives we become stressed.
To our primal brains all of our acts of perseverance through struggles are seen as big bears constantly chasing us and we can’t seem to find our cave to escape them. Cortisol is there to protect us from prey thus it keeps us up at night or wakes us up early to ensure we keep ourselves safe from “the prey”. Cortisol elevation at inconvenient times is a learned response. We subconsciously train our bodies to respond to stress in these ways.

The good news is – we can re-train our bodies to re-set our cortisol with a schedule and a routine. You are not much different than you were as a kid. You need a routine – set your wake up, sleep and meal times to re-train your primal brain and adrenals the proper way to release cortisol.
Another factor in the response to stress is melatonin release. Melatonin is often found to be low in the late evening to overnight time in those who are chronically stressed. The good news here is that putting yourself on a schedule helps balance cortisol and melatonin!
