Midweek chill out

Squirrels and cycles

Feb 6, 2019

When you are in 'fight or flight' mode your adrenal glands secrete cortisol. This gives you the energy boost, reduced pain threshold and increased blood pressure to help you deal with the immediate situation. However, prolonged periods of high cortisol levels can improve your lifestyle and ability to perceive and understand your environment.

Cortisol release can be triggered by any number of stressful situations, including challenging work conditions, caffeine, a shortage of sleep, even travelling by train.

Researchers have found that laughter and music both help reduce stress hormones. Living Money's mission is to help you sleep at night and live wholeheartedly by day, so we are happy to offer a midweek de-stress chill out, a short post with a piece of laughter, a bit of music and something to help you think, for a while, about something completely different.

Laugh out loud

Inspired by the sight of a squirrel sitting on my bicycle this morning…

Such a great ad. We love those two owls.
A shame they don’t make ads like this anymore.
It goes without saying that we posted this for its entertainment value only
and in no way endorse the product.
