KNOW YOUR STRESS | OWN YOUR STRESS | DO SOMETHING ABOUT YOUR STRESS
Stress is not an abstract concept that cannot be measured. Cortisol is one of of a number of stress hormones that significantly impacts health in a multitude of ways. When you can see your stress in a measurable way, it transforms into something more tangible over which you have control. Once you own your stress, it becomes something much more manageable. Unfortunately, Mother Nature did not design human beings for the chronic stressors of modern life. The stress hormone response was engineered to respond to acute threats in our environment like outrunning bears, not for chronic ongoing stress like work deadlines, never-ending to-do lists, or 24-hour cable news. When you can see how out-of-balance your stress hormones are, they can become a source of empowerment instead of a source of chronic disease and hormone imbalance that robs you of your happy, feel good chemicals. Take your diurnal salivary cortisol test today and start taming your stress.
