I was reading this article about the effects of stress on our health, and it got me thinking. I was sitting in a meeting one afternoon, and it was a topic we talked about at the core of the meeting, and I just started thinking about all the things that people do and don’t do which are connected to stress and how we can change those to lessen the impact of stress on our health.
When we’re stressed out, we tend to make the same mistakes over and over again. When we’re stressed out, we don’t really notice what we’re doing wrong. We just do it a bunch of times until we get it right. This is known as “stress eating” and is a big problem for stressed people.
Stress eating is eating or drinking too much to the point of you feeling physically as if you are going to pass out. It’s a common problem for people who are stressed out, but it’s not the only problem. When you eat too much sugar (like candy, sweets, sodas, etc.) or drink a lot of caffeine, you’re also more likely to have insomnia or get that bad headache.
Stresses come from a number of sources, one of which is stress eating. It may be that you are spending too much time online, or youre not keeping track of what you are eating and drinking. Another common source is just getting stressed out. This can happen because you are in a rush and don’t have time to think about what you are eating or drinking. But you also don’t realize that you are getting stressed.
A stress eating or stress sleeping disorder is a specific type of eating disorder that can be caused by extreme stress of one sort or another. Sometimes, it’s just a simple case of overeating or not paying attention to what you are actually eating. Sometimes it can be a symptom of something far more serious like depression or heart disease.
I would assume that if this is a stress eating disorder, then it is likely that you are stressed out about something you are not aware of. If you find yourself in the emergency room after a heart attack or stroke, and you are experiencing stress eating, then you are probably going through some sort of stress eating disorder. But if it is a stress sleeping disorder, you are probably just having a hard time falling asleep.
These are two different disorders. Stress eating disorder is a disorder that causes you to be unable to fall asleep after eating. Stress sleeping disorder is a different thing altogether. Most people with stress eating disorder (and stress sleeping disorder) are unable to fall asleep after eating. It’s a very common problem I know from the clinic.
In a stress eating disorder your body has to burn energy in order to digest food. It is a good thing.
A stress sleeping disorder is a totally different problem. The body has to use energy to sustain itself in order to sleep. In a stress sleeping disorder your body does not have to use energy to sustain itself and hence sleeps even though you are awake.
There are some people who can’t fall asleep after eating. They might sleep for a few hours and then wake up. They are probably not stress sleeping disorder related. But it is something I have heard of in the clinic.
