our bodies make cortisol at a stress - a by-product of congenital, evolutionary programming which is designed to initiate actions and to escape danger. Cortisol, in addition to adrenaline, is important hormone of a stress which performs a set of functions. Actually, cortisol helps to support us in live, supporting a homeostasis of our body (balance). He helps to regulate levels of arterial blood pressure, metabolic activity, reactions of immune system, arterial blood pressure, inflammation, functions of heart, function of blood vessels and activity of the central nervous system.

However can lead the increased level of a stress to the fact that our body overproduces this hormone. When it occurs, the organism is inclined to a number of undesirable side effects, including: high blood pressure, increase in weight, the increased cholesterol level, heart diseases, alarm and a depression, damage of immune system and cognitive problems, such as difficulties of training and violation of memory.

4. Laughter
of
"Laughter - the best medicine". How many times did we hear it throughout all our life? Doctor William Frei, the behavioural psychiatrist who studies more than 30 years laughter consequences, claims that laughter is inseparably linked with a number of physical and intellectual advantages.
