Ways to rebalance your stress response

Research shows that the following activities can decrease levels of the stress hormone cortisol, raise endorphins (feel good hormones), increase oxytocin (bonding hormone), relax muscles and improve mood.

  • Bring your dog to work or spend time with your pet
  • Laugh! Enjoy a movie, show or person that makes you laugh
  • Gardening, caring for plants and enjoying nature
  • Read a book or article
  • Drink tea
  • Listen to music
  • Go for a walk (walking in the mall is a warm option in the winter)
  • Call and talk with your mom or a friend
  • Eat dark chocolate (1.4 ounces per day)

That’s right, chocolate!
