Hormones are often the bane of a woman’s life, especially when an imbalance is present. Cramps, mood swings, hot flashes, loss of libido and burnouts, it is probably true to say that most women suffer at some point in their lives. Stress management plays a vital role, here’s why.

stress managementThe Endocrine System and Stress Management

Your hormones govern everything in life and affect your body shape. They impact how you think, feel, and act too. When the hormonal imbalance goes into overdrive, as in the case of someone who is in the stages of the menopause, this can make them react in ways completely out of character. 

Skin problems, fluctuating sleep problems, weight gain, and mood swings are just some of the side-effects of hormonal imbalance. These symptoms affect so many aspects of life that on a day to day basis, life can be pretty miserable. Stress management is vital during times of hormonal imbalance because these changes can alter perception and reaction to stressors. With the possibility of intense fatigue, abdominal cramps, irritability and feeling tearful, it’s important to note that these symptoms do not just go away. Therefore, finding ways to balance hormones while reducing stress is paramount. 

The hypothalamus, pituitary glands, and pineal glands also play a role in hormone production and health along with:

  • Estrogen
  • Progesterone
  • Growth hormones
  • Insulin
  • Cortisol
  • Melatonin

The endocrine system plays a vital role in metabolism and sexual function too. It is not uncommon for women to feel less than attractive or to feel generally ‘out of sorts’ when hormones start to play up. These are difficult times.

These are difficult times.
