Lower Stress and Cortisol

In our fast-paced and demanding lives, stress has become an unwelcome companion for many of us. It's no secret that stress can wreak havoc on our bodies and minds, triggering the release of cortisol—the infamous stress hormone. But what if I told you there's a delightful and scientifically-backed solution to combat stress and cortisol that involves...watching adorable cat videos??? 

When stress hits, our bodies instinctively and immediately activate the fight or flight response, flooding us with cortisol. This immediate response sets off a cascade of physiological changes, impacting various systems such as our heart rate, breathing, blood pressure, immunity, and even our emotions and perceptions. While cortisol does serve some short-term beneficial functions, chronic elevation of cortisol levels can have detrimental effects on our health and cognitive function

And every time cortisol is released, it stays in our bodies for 2-3 hours. (It’s almost as persistent as cat hair.)

Engaging in Micro Bursts of physical activity, similar to a cat's startled stress response, helps to combat stress and rid our bodies of cortisol. These bursts of physical activity not only benefit cats, but also provide a natural stress-fighting mechanism for us as they rid the body of cortisol.

For those moments when engaging in a Micro Burst might not be feasible, there's a simple yet effective alternative: watching cat videos.

It may sound too good to be true, but preliminary studies have shown that watching cat videos can lower cortisol levels, alleviate stress, and enhance mood. The simple act of immersing yourself in the adorable antics of these furry creatures triggers a positive physiological response in your body.

So, the next time you catch yourself feeling overwhelmed, instead of mindlessly scrolling through social media, why not indulge in some cat therapy? It’s the purr-fect solution! 😆
