How Stress Affects Your Metabolism


Stress is an inevitable part of life. It can be caused by both good and bad events, and it can affect our emotions, thoughts, and physical health. When you’re feeling stressed out, your body produces more of the hormone cortisol. This hormone can lead to weight gain, especially around your midsection. So if you’re trying to lose weight, it’s important to learn how to manage it. Take some time each day to relax, and you’ll see a big difference in your weight loss progress!

Practical ways to relieve stress in your life are:

  • Go for a walk
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Do something creative
  • Get plenty of sleep
  • Have some “you” time
  • Learn to say no
  • Hang out with friends
  • Hang out with your pet
  • Laugh and smile more
  • Limit caffeine and alcohol
  • Exercise
  • Clean your house
  • Breathe
