Silence Your Stress Hormones
However, silencing stress hormones is something anyone can do.
Want to know what goes on inside your body when you’re in the pressure cooker emotionally, mentally or physically. Your brain, sensing any kind of stress, releases ACTH from the base of the brain, otherwise known as the pituitary gland. That ACTH reaches your adrenal glands which begin to release adrenaline and cortisol into your blood stream.
OK, so you’re swimming is stress hormones.
Now the body wants to counteract. It gets itself into a defensive stance by increasing blood flow to the muscles and raising your blood pressure. The result is that your immune system weakens.
Warning - Repeating this exercise every day greatly reduces your ability to fight disease.
Thing is, many people don’t even realize their body is being invaded by these little tiny pressure cookers. Because they don’t take emotional stress into account. It’s not just our fast-paced lives that wind us down. It’s those feelings of loss, being alone, feeling unloved and unappreciated that can be the biggest stress creators.
Happiness, my friend, is the best stress silencer.
Then there’s the music you choose to listen to. It will either give you a dose of stress reduction or stress elevation. Some people, especially when younger get addicted to feeling their heart rate and respiration at higher levels. So they self-dose with music that elevates their cortisol and adrenaline. Rock, heavy metal, pop, rap – the kind that gets you’re heart pumpin.
That’s not walking down the road towards health. Not if you’re looking to stimulate your mind while at the same time silencing your stress hormones.
There’s no easier way to rejuvenate than by listening to highly programmable music – of the positively charged kind.
