Stress is defined as anything the body has to react to—good, bad, or neither. So the food we eat, the environment we live in, our physical makeup, and the emotions that we experience require constant correction from the body’s systems. If you’re facing danger, the body’s stress response is good. If you’re speeding to work or facing tight deadlines, this perceived danger tricks the stress response system into constant action.
The adrenal glands may be small, but they play a huge role in the complex physical network that stress sets in motion. These glands have a great influence on our overall health and vitality. They interact with the thyroid gland, gonads, and pancreas and are an integral part of our immune response as well as the cardiovascular, metabolic, and central nervous systems.
Here are some simple solutions to help decrease your holiday stresses:
Mild exrcise, like walking or yoga
Get enough sleep
Eat more healthy foods
Go outside, especially in the morning (will help to reset the normal circadian rhythm)
Breathe, Meditate 5-10 minutes a day
Please ask, there are excellent nutritional supports you can add to increase your health and vitality.
