Have you had your cortisol levels checked? It may be time to do so. Cortisol is a naturally occurring hormone that is produced in response to stress. However, persistent high cortisol levels can disrupt the healthy balance in your body. This may cause you to experience unwanted changes such as weight gain, sleep issues, mood swings and more. Ready to get your cortisol levels in balance?
You’re stressed, and it’s beginning to show — unfortunately — in more ways than one. Long-term stress can have negative effects on your health and lead to changes in your body such as disease and weight gain. Identifying the causes of stress and what you can do to manage stress is the key to a healthy balance. You may not be able to control all the stressors around you, but you can alter your reaction to them, so you can bounce back more quickly.
