7 ways of reduction of level of cortisol in your body


Stress hormone, cortisol, is "enemy No 1". Scientists know many years that the increased cortisol levels: interfere with training and memory, reduce immune function and density of bones, increase a body weight gain, blood pressure, cholesterol, heart diseases... This list has no end.

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.

Nevertheless, is important that our levels of cortisol were stable.

Here 7 ways of reduction of level of cortisol:

1. Whether exercises
of
Are something that the physical activity can't? Seriously... It seems that every day there is a new research which connects exercises with advantages to health. Anyway, exercises can help to reduce cortisol by "release" of a stress or other counterproductive emotions.

2. Practical reflection or meditation
of
Any practice of meditation or sensibleness can reduce cortisol level. Even several deep breaths in the middle of the intense working day can reduce our concern and a stress that also reduces stress hormone.

3. Communication
of
Researchers from John Hopkins's University have found communication between social isolation and the increased cortisol level in mice. It is considered that faces with predisposition to mental diseases which are socially isolated at teenage age are more subject to risk of development of abnormal behavior at later age.

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.

5. Listening of music
of
Practically all of us have tested properties of improvement of mood when listening music. It appears, there is a chemical reason for this purpose: music increases amount of endorphins and reduces amount of hormones of a stress in a brain.
