Stress less

Woman’s Day (NZ) - - Wellness -

When we’re un­der stress, we pro­duce adren­a­line and cor­ti­sol. For any of us with chronic stress, over­pro­duc­tion of cor­ti­sol can lead to big prob­lems – adrenal ex­haus­tion, lower im­mu­nity and se­ri­ous ill­ness. Stress and anx­i­ety can be wors­ened by eat­ing the wrong foods. We might feel like choco­late in tough times, but junk food and swee­t­eet treats cause our blood sugar to spike, which is bad news for the adrenal glands as they’re forced to work over­time. Stick to healthy thy snacks and make a plan for re­duc­ing stress. Soo the your nerves by do­ing ac­tiv­i­ties that re­lax you, try to ar­rive early to ap­point­ments and slow things down. And don’t for­get to breathe!
