3 Ways To Manage Your Cortisol Levels

May 11, 2023

1. Reduce Your Stress

Stress triggers cortisol release and chronic stress can cause your immune system to spiral out of control.


  • Relaxation Techniques
  • Journaling
  • Reading stress-free books
  • Daily relaxation walks
  • Yoga

2. Balance Your Diet

Poorly managed blood sugar levels and inflammation throughout your diet can release excess cortisol. Limiting processed foods can help bring your levels back to normal.


  • Whole Foods
  • Anti-Inflammatory Diet
  • Limit Caffeine and Alcohol
  • Increase Fiber Intake

3. Manage Your Bedtime Routine

Elevated cortisol levels put your body in a fight-or-flight state which can cause insomnia. Sticking to a regular bedtime routine schedule and getting 8-9 hours of sleep per night can be beneficial.


  • Limit or eliminate screen time before bed
  • Slow your mind down by reading a book
  • Exercise earlier in the day
  • Meditation practice
