3 ways your hormones wreck your sleep

POV: You can’t fall asleep, and when you do, you can’t stay asleep. Ugh, enter tired, groggy eyes and zombie-ing through the day till coffee zips you awake. ⁠

Did you ever think maybe your hormones are to blame? Did you know there are 3 ways your hormones wreck your sleep? Oooh, yes! Read on to learn how imbalanced hormones can really mess with your sleep! 


3 ways your hormones can wreck your sleep 

1. Having high cortisol…⁠

I see this again and again with my clients (and what I struggled with myself) – when they have high cortisol, which is the stress hormone, it’s tough to wind down at bedtime. ⁠

Ever felt wired and tired? Yep, blame it on the high cortisol. ⁠

2. Having low progesterone…⁠

Ladies in your 30s, 40s, and 50s, our progesterone levels will start to decline as we get older. It’s not the best because progesterone is a calming hormone; it can make us sleepy. ⁠

Also, if you are super stressed, you’ve been overtraining, under-eating or you’ve been on the pill or an IUD, you’re probably suffering from low progesterone, too.⁠

3. Having low melatonin… ⁠

Melatonin is our sleepy time hormone ~ and 80% of it is made in the gut ~ So if you have any chronic gut issues, whether it’s constipation, IBS, or loose bowels, it could contribute to low melatonin.⁠
