Stressed? 💔 Read on.
There are so many things our modern society deems “normal” that are actually awful for our stress hormones. 👎 Working 50+ hour weeks, watching the overly negative news every morning, constantly trying to climb the corporate ladders and committing to social events we wanted to say no to are a few examples. ❤ In order to remove as much stress from your life as possible, you have to be willing to assess the decisions you make on a daily basis and how they’re affecting your stress regularly.
⭐ Exercising regularly is one of the best ways to reduce cortisol levels. 🏊♀️ Gentle aerobic exercise, like walking, swimming, and jogging are especially beneficial for lowering cortisol and increasing endorphins.⭐ Be cautious to not let your exercise become too strenuous, which can have the opposite effect on your stress levels. 👈
😳 The release of cortisol, especially when it’s chronic, changes the way your body metabolizes glucose and when your body is unable to efficiently process the glucose (carbs) that you eat, you can become insulin resistant. 🙏 Ask our office how we can help you with balancing your hormones.
