A good reason to sleep until 10


Cortisol (a.k.a. the stress hormone since it increases blood pressure and blood sugar) peaks in your blood around 7-8am. If you get up then, you may feel stressed. The best solution, is to sleep until later, like 9 or 10, when your cortisol level drops back down. Then you wake up and kick off your day fresh! (Like we usually do in weekends...)

I insist on sleeping that late. Every day.
