Cortisol hormone

Hi all. Thought I'd.share this with.you, it's a work related article.they tested the cortisol levels on a group of carers who care for people with no mental health issues then levels from carers who supported people with dementia (very stressful work) they were asked to do 5or.so deep.breaths at least 5 times.daily. yeah after 6 months the carers looking after dementia ppl levels came down to the others group

Best wishes to you all x

Yoga would probably have similar, or even better results
