Kelly's de-stress top tips

As well as the mental turbulence your body also struggles to physically deal with stress: part of the stress response involves the release of a hormone called cortisol. While its part of the healthy response, when the stress response is prolonged, cortisol secretion is too high, one of the potential impacts is to causes fat to be laid down on the body (your body is storing up quick release energy supplies) and relative level of muscle mass can decline.

This is one of the reasons why one of the first things I do with my clients is test for where your body is currently set in terms of its physiological response to  stress an adrenal function test and from there work out how much or how little exercise to give you. 

I initially recommend exercise like gentle yoga or Pilates can be soothing to the body, allowing a release of nervous energy, while not overtaxing... yoga, swimming and walking are a good mix.
