Cortisol and Stress

Cortisol and Stress

Blog

We’ve all heard about stress and how it can negatively affect health, and life in general. But where does it come from? The usual answers will stem from work, to home, to play, and everything in between. Not to mention all those little things we don’t even consciously recognize. But let’s not talk about that.

Blog

Oh, the lights on the Christmas tree. They flicker in dull yet somehow sparkling reds, greens, and blues. It’s warm, it’s fuzzy (somehow) and when the lights everywhere else are low the tree commands the room. This year, same as last, there are even more flickering blues. They pulse with the rate of thumbs swiping up, over, and frantically across the screen of tiny handheld devices. They challenge the softly illuminating presence of Christmas lights wrapped around the delicate branches of a displaced fir tree. 

Why are we talking about blue lights and smart phones? If you read our blog much, you know we focus on health. You may have figured out by now that this blog is no exception.
