Cortisol


Active Rest Day

Find a new sport or activity to play/do. Hike, swim, rock climb, whatever, have fun with it!


Cortisol plays a large role in our lives. This stress hormone can really get out of whack in those whose lives are hectic, people who don’t eat right and/or exercise right (too much/not enough/ wrong type), and people who don’t sleep well. The thing is, stress increases cortisol, and increased cortisol can lead to stress, so it all just accumulates many times. It’s important to keep cortisol levels in check and here’s a little bit of info from our good friend at Mark’s Daily Apple:
