Cortisol Levels: Cortisol is naturally regulated in the body by organs called adrenal glands. However, cortisol is released in response to stress, so one way to decrease cortisol levels is to remove stress from your life when possible. It sounds simple, but relaxing by doing yoga, meditating etc. Can be very helpful. Another way to keep cortisol levels down is avoiding caffeine and sugar, which both increase it.
