​Making the Cortisol-Stress connection:

  • Cortisol is a major hormone produced by your adrenal glands when your body is under stress

    • stress = emotional or physical (injury, infection, exercise, low blood sugar)

  • Cortisol and Melatonin work opposite to each other and as one lowers, the other raises. Chronically high cortisol can be a cause of poor sleep quality - when cortisol peaks in the night instead of staying low until 8-9am.

  • Chronic cortisol elevation can disrupt many processes, including digestion, other hormones/neurotransmitters (for example, the hormone serotonin is found primarily in the digestive system) and inflammation (although cortisol temporarily suppresses inflammation, it leads to rebound flares of inflammation) - all of which can impact mood

Anxiety help tip #1: "Write it down"

Get started right now, wherever you are. Reduce the burden of information overload and intrusive thoughts.

Use writing to let go of the clutter you are holding on to in your head.
Choose a writing method that suits you best (or more than one), and give it a go now:

  • freeform writing: write for 5 minutes each morning and evening (not in bed) - especially helpful for insomnia

  • TO DO list: set this up each week, add to it through the day (phone-friendly) - if you are overwhelmed / forgetting tasks

  • Bullet journal: a day-planner/scheduler, for planning & goal-setting [learn more here] - improves focus & attention

  • Schedule time for you: commit to your goals by writing them down (ie. sleep, exercise, meditation) - improve brain function by nourishing it
