Sleeping in Excess

When stress is in excess in the body, you might find yourself sleeping more. Good news. The body repairs itself while you sleep.

Trauma, disappointments, responsibility, & stress can take its toll on the body and mind.

Sleep can help reset our thoughts, clear the mind as we wake up to a new day.

When we sleep too much, though, it confuses our body's routine. It also confuses our friends and family and causes them to wonder what is bothering us.

Too much sleep is an indicator of depression. When your body gives you these warnings, and you feel sad or depressed for long periods, it means it is time to address the issue. Write down your feelings. Sometimes, ppl don't realize why they are upset. Writing it down puts it in perspective. Start eating foods that raise serotonin, e.g.  honey, dark chocolate, green & herbal teas, etc. See article link below for foods that increase serotonin. top-7-foods-that-boost-serotonin
