Soothe stress in 5 Days with our #5DAYRECODE challenge
Living in a constant state of stress shifts our biochemistry and wreaks havoc on our physical and emotional health.
When we live in a consistent state of stress, we are collectively experiencing a cell starvation problem (even though we’re eating), which forces the body to release stress hormones (cortisol and adrenaline) in order to compensate for the inability of your body to effectively convert food into fuel.
This is the cause of many chronic symptoms including:
- Weight gain
- and Insomnia
We get stuck in this vicious cycle and it breaks down our physical and emotional health. Therefore, we must interrupt this hormonal pattern correctly and consistently to reverse the cycle and allow your cells to make energy from your food once again. Interrupting this pattern will also help heal the collateral damage done to our nerve cells.
To start this type of healing, we've pulled 5 action items from The Adrenal ReCode to include in a 5-day challenge called #5DAYRECODE. This will help you start to interrupt these negative patterns and get you back on track. There's a ton more work to be done on the body to heal this stress response state for lasting results, but this is a good start!

Doing yoga three times a week can help train your system to live mostly in your parasympathetic nervous system (rest-and-digest) and to only use the sympathetic (fight-flight-or-freeze) when true danger is present. Focus on releasing your neck and shoulders first. Stretch out your spine second so that your cerebrospinal fluid can flow easier to nourish your nerves. Then, open up your hip flexors and psoas as they are the “junk drawers” of our emotional storage.
