Often people think that stress influences your thoughts, but not only does stress influence thoughts, it also influences your hormones! Stress and negative thoughts stimulate the production of hormones.

Why are hormones good?
Hormones makes sure that your organs and brain communicate with each other. Hormones are like ‘messengers’, they send a signal to other parts of the body. There are a lot of different hormones, each one has another task to fulfill. Like discussed before, stress can activate some hormones such as adrenalin and noradrenalin. Our thoughts and emotions stimulate the production of chemical processes in the brain (hormones), for example, serotonin or dopamine. When you remember a nice moment, you will instantly feel better. This is because of your hormones. Dopamine and serotonin makes sure that you get that happy feeling.

Activating your hormones
Negative thoughts influence your feelings. To feel better it is important to convert your negative thought into positive ones. Also it has been scientifically proven that positive hormones will strengthen your immune system. The opposite of this is also proven, negative thoughts can weaken your immune system.

Hormones in balance
To get your hormones in balance, it is important to relax. Stress influences your thoughts, and this in turn influences your hormones. Your hormones react to your thoughts. When you are stressed, the hormone adrenaline will be released, which makes you feel rushed. This can be helpful when you need to finish something, but it can be bad for you when you are feeling it almost all the time.
