December 07, 2016

There is no denying that we live in a fast-paced, high stressed society. We have changed the standard way of living by accepting the fact that we are always stressed out and that is just how it is, but it doesn't have to be that way. 

Think about how you would feel if you were able to quit your job, your bills were covered, you had money to spend on spat treatments, and you constantly feel like you have slept for 10 hours and where able to meditate often to give your adrenal glands some rest.

Adrenal glands are small glands on the top of your kidneys that are about the shape of an almond. These glands secrete neurotransmitters to your brain that help you to be able to deal with stress. These glands also secrete the stress hormone cortisol. Cortisol is very harmful to the body and can cause weight gain, diabetes, and much more.

When too much stress is placed on your adrenal glands it begins to enter into a state called adrenal fatigue. So, keep exercising and taking a few minutes a day reduce the stress of your day and reducing your chances of adrenal fatigue.
