3-Step Plan To Manage Your Stress

Long-term stress is the root of many ailments in our modern-day world. Luckily, there is a three-step approach tomanaging all the stressors you will encounter throughout your life. In fact, treat your stressor as a project and then do the following:

  1. Name it
    • Whether it’s emotional, mental or physical, write down your stressor.
  2. Make a plan
    • You want to move your project over the hurdle of procrastination. Do this by writing down an action plan that is SMART:
      • Specific
      • Measurable
      • Attainable
      • Realistic
      • There’s a Timeline
  3. Deal with your plan
    • Tackle it – roll up your sleeves and just do it.
    • Get help – if you don’t have a lot of time get some support like an accountant or a mediator.
    • Let it go – if things are weighted by emotion you may have to use tools such as journaling to letting it go. Remember: this isn’t denial.
    • Let it be – if you have to endure something for a period of time, you may just have to practice the act of letting it be. Meditation can help with this.
  4. Let CortiSLIM be a part of your plan to get your stress under control.

Signs Your Thyroid May Be Out Of Whack

Extreme Fatigue. If you’re always tired, even after sleeping 8 to 10 hours a night, it’s a common sign that your thyroid hormone levels are low. Of course, fatigue and low energy are associated with many conditions, but if you don’t have enough thyroid hormone (TH) flowing through your body, your muscles aren’t receiving a signal to get up and get moving.

Brain Fog. If it feels as though you’re walking around in a fog all day, are having difficulty focusing, or forgetting things frequently, it could be that your thyroid is out of whack. Too much TH can make it hard to concentrate, while too little can cause memory problems.

Digestive Issues. Those with hypothyroidism often complain of constipation, as an underactive thyroid can cause the digestive process to slow. An overactive thyroid gland can cause the opposite problem, such as diarrhea or more frequent bowel movements.

Mood Problems. Mood swings, anxiety or depression can develop in those who have thyroid disorders. Anxiety and nervousness are linked to hyperthyroidism as the body is flooded constantly with a message to go, go, go, causing it to go into overdrive.

Many CortiSLIM customers find CortiSLIM Advance helps with hormone issues and stress-related belly fat.
