Season 4: Episode 4

Published June 4, 2024

In this informational episode, Jaclyn and Carrie Jones discuss the connection between cortisol, cognitive health, mental health, and reproductive hormones. Cortisol can influence many parts of the body, including hormones, the prefrontal cortex, and stress resilience over time.  

Stress resilience looks different for everyone, but Jaclyn and Carrie provide some great tips to help mitigate stress, feel more at ease, and improve resilience. They also cover how stressors have changed since the pandemic, how hormonal shifts can create stress in the body, and the importance of not diminishing the effects of stress in our lives.
