When your hormones are out of balance, it’s hard to stay calm
If you follow these three natural steps, you’ll be less stressed and anxious.
Step 1: Get Active to Burn Off Stress Hormones
Your stress response is controlled by your hypothalamus. Your hypothalamus doesn’t know the difference between you stressing over being late for work or a tiger chasing you. Once it perceives your fear, your hypothalamus triggers your sympathetic nervous system to get the heck out of here!
Your adrenal glands then produce adrenaline which speeds up your heart and raises your blood pressure so you can either fight or run away from the danger. Then your adrenals produce cortisol to fuel your fight or flight response. Exercise can help you burn off these stress hormones so they don’t damage your body and so you don’t start storing belly fat from the excess cortisol. Plus daily exercise has been shown to reduce the natural stress response. So get active and move your body at least thirty minutes every day!
Step 2: Breathe Deeply to Relieve Stress and Reduce Anxiety
When you’re stressed, you tend to take short shallow breaths which reduce the amount of oxygen and make you feel even more anxious. If you focus on breathing slowly and deeply, you not only increase your oxygen levels which calms you, but you stimulate your parasympathetic nervous system. Your parasympathetic nervous system calms what your sympathetic nervous system excites. So let’s practice!
Place your hand right here on your belly.
Now breathe slowly and deeply through your nose.
So deep that it feels like you’re breathing all the way into your belly.
Now slowly exhale through your mouth using your stomach muscles to completely empty your lungs.
Repeat these slow deep breaths in through your nose and out through your mouth three times whenever you’re feeling stressed and you will immediately feel calmer.
Step 3: Balance Your Adrenals Naturally
When you’re chronically under stress, your adrenal glands work so hard that they can become fatigued. Exercising daily and practicing deep breathing helps, but your body needs you to give it what it needs to prevent adrenal fatigue.
You can support your adrenals by eating healthy fats like avocados, olive oil, nuts, and seeds. And be sure to get enough sea salt to keep your adrenals healthy. Plus you can support your hypothalamus- pituitary- adrenal axis naturally with Genesis Gold®.
