Cortisol and Anxiety. Cortisol is our number one stress hormone that plays a huge role in regulating a variety of different processes in the human body. From helping you fight an infection or deal with an injury to giving you a boost of energy to run from immediate danger and focus in times of crisis.

Even though our cortisol levels change throughout the day, they are supposed to be the highest in the morning when we wake up and gradually decrease throughout the day. If there’s an event or a stressful situation occurring at 3 pm, it’s naturally going to spike, but it should be followed by a natural decline.

Prevent Winter Colds and Flu. With the winter season upon us, so is the increase in seasonal colds and flu infections. When the temperature drops, it seems like every person around you suddenly starts coughing, sneezing, and having difficulty breathing properly. You’re definitely not imagining it, and instead of letting it be and dealing with it because “it’s the season,” it’s time to be more proactive and prevent winter colds and the flu. 

Even though viral and bacterial infections are often impossible to completely prevent all winter season, there are some powerful habits you can implement into your daily routine that can help strengthen your immune system and keep you protected as much as it’s humanely possible in the given situation.
