As promised, my ways to reduce #cortisol post.....just in time for Santa....🎄🎁 *Sleep, I mean quality REM sleep. This is crucial from the million nerdy studies I've read, at least 6 hours. Should be dark, use blackout blinds, masks. Lol get off the gram( guilty). Supplement if needed, melatonin 0.3mg ( most people take too much), Zzquil, Rx aids if you have to, no shame in doing what you have to do. *Meditation. Try 15 min a day, it's actually really hard at first to get your mind quiet. There's a channel on YouTube Zenlife Relax I like to use, a 432hz or 639hz can actually help convert your alpha and beta brain waves into Theta ones....watch your life change with this one🎆 *Do NICE things for yourself, like I mean it. So many moms and dads I know forget about themselves, they become martyrs. Find what you love, and for ladies, seriously never underestimate the power of getting your hair and makeup done. I'll pick you up lets go out 🍷🍸🍹🥂🍾 *Get enough Omega 3s, NOT 6. Talking decreasing inflammation here. Fatty fish, quality nuts, walnuts, Brazil nuts. I LOVE peanut butter, but since I've cut back and only have it on occasion I've noticed a difference. Lol I have an exotic nut collection now😂😂 *Herbs worth your while ( adaptogenic), since we can't remove all stress; turmeric, ashwagandha, rhodiola, panax ginseng, valerian root. * Treat yourself, I mean mentally. I never understood this, why there is still a stigma with taking an antidepressant or medication to help with anxiety. Talk to someone, get treatment. In fact, since everyone inboxing me wants to cut up, some antidepressants and mood stabilizers can actually suppress your appetite ( ask me which ones). There is ZERO shame in feeling better.
My final thought if you made it this far....you DESERVE to wake up every f***ng day feeling good, about yourself, your life. If you don't, let's fix that first. 💖💖💖💖 Photo: @carla_rae24
