Depression and Stress Management
Losing a family member, divorce, and moving are all major life changes that can cause stress. Some studiesTrusted Source link an overactive stress system and high levels of cortisol in the body to depression and other health conditions, including heart disease. When the mind feels threatened, the body produces more stress hormones — such as cortisol — to help the body fight or run away from the threat. This works well if you’re in real danger, but it doesn’t always benefit you in your daily life.
