Healthy Hormone Series

The Healthy Hormone Series – Cortisol. Is it standing between you and your excess weight?

Last week we explored DHEA, the hormone that helps keep cortisol in check among other things.  If you didn’t get a chance to read it you can catch up here.  Cortisol is a hormone you may have heard swung around the traps as if it were the Coca-Cola of neurotransmitters – that is, it’s not one bit good for you.  But as you’ll learn, it’s quite the contrary.  Cortisol is one of the many hormones we all need that performs many functions we must tap into to survive.  The issue of modern living is that cortisol is way too often out of control, much like King Kong on a bad day.

Cortisol, produced by your adrenal glands which sit above the kidneys, is that hormone that helps to manage things like digestion as it regulates hunger and cravings.  It’s also important to regulate blood pressure, our sleep/wake homeostasis AND where you might have heard it mentioned most, it’s ability to help us cope with stress.

Cortisol isn’t exactly the bad guy.

National Ease Day – come join me!

Is it just me, or is every day getting quicker than the next?  Or is it that I continue to add more and more to the ‘to do’ pile?  Day in, day out, I go through every emotion thinking something is wrong – what have I become?  Who am I? I often think, I don’t even know myself anymore.  Eek.  I’m only telling you this today because I know, not for one millisecond, am I alone.

What I add to the the pile is after all my choice and nobody else’s.  Or is it?  Do people have higher expectations, are people more abrupt (you can thank email for that much), ruder, more demanding?  We are all ‘busy,’ all rushing about.  I’m sure the view from Mars has us all resembling a trail of lost ants hustling and bustling across the planet.  Possibly the high expectations we’ve adapted continually have us feeling let down and rushing to the next equally high expectation set to try and gain some satisfaction.

I for one, am a bit over it.  I don’t want to play this game anymore.  But sometimes I’m not really sure how to get off the merry go round.  So rather than focus on what I don’t know, it makes far more sense to focus on what I do.  But more exciting still, you might have seen on Snapchat;

I’m motioning that today, is a National Day of Ease.

How To Use Perspective To Help You Manage Stress Better

At times circumstances come along in our lives that completely warrant stress – sad news of a loved one, accidents, perhaps job loss and alike.  Other times, we need a whack across the face to snap ourselves out of it – you know, the little things, running late, a broken phone (yes, perspective) or a four year old temper tantrum.

We all do it.  We all get ‘stressed.’

But in a world where stress is glorified, how is it that we can avoid its seemingly unavoidable grasp? Maybe you’ve been lead to think that you won’t be successful unless you’re under the pump.  Maybe you’re watching everybody else, all looking like they are frazzled and frayed like a piece of string – at both ends, but you look at them and envy their success.

Truth bomb – Stress does not equal success.
