How to reduce Stress (Cortisol hormone) in your life
- If your workplace is stressing you out, eliminating the problem at source is essential. I will be adding some destress tips to the webiste in due course. In the meantime, I recommend Eckhart Tolle, The Power of Now. .
- Find your nearest Brahma Kumaris. If you live in or near Worthing, I highly recommend The Lighthouse Retreat. The link is below.
- Meditate – There are lots of excellent meditations on the Lighthouse Retreat website. I will be sharing some more in due course.
- Habits – creating healthy habits.
If you do wake in the early hours, some people say that this is the universe waking us up to give us advice, so instead of stressing out, we should listen to a YouTube video and meditate. I have tried this and it does work! Keep a notepad or note taking device by your bed
Stress (Cortisol hormone)
Why is stress bad for our wombs, breasts and prostates?
Stress is really bad for us because our brains make more ccortisol which mimics oestrogen and excess oestrogen raises the risk of endometrial cancers which means that cortisol is a xenoestrogen. Cortisol naturally increases with age in both men and women.
Our workplace can also increase stress – whether it be because our working environment is uncomfortable, relationships with colleagues, or heavy workload. And because we spend on average of eight hours per day at work, that is a long time to be stressed.
We need to reduce xenoestrogens in our life which means we need to reduce stress levels. Easier said than done.
