The Testosterone Report If you suffer some sleep deprivation the next evening your cortisol levels will rise 28 , what means other parts of your body will have more problems to do the same. That levels can increase between 37% (partial sleep deprivation) and 45% (total deprivation). Lowering stress is easier said than done, I know, but practicing a sport we like, having hobbies, a life beyond our job, meditation, yoga or whatever works for you has to be done. For me it’s physical activity, meditating, making sure I go out and chat with other human beings… those are important things, keep your mind occupied with things that you enjoy, make a list of what’s cool for you and start doing more of that. And by the way, an information diet is one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life, I turned off news and TV years ago, I rarely read papers now (if something important happens you will know, believe me) and when I read them it’s because I want to know what movies are playing in theaters… I know some situations are not easy, personally I’m a little bit obsessive so when I started to know about this issue (for example) I worried more, but when I knew something could be made, in the end I decided to change my lifestyle and worry was the seed of motivation. Probably if we are stressed every day maybe it’s time for a change NOW, because I don’t know about you, but last time I checked I had only one life… Lifestyle 2: move! If we want healthy testosterone levels we must lose weight if we have too much, we have to stay fit and even pack some muscle. I think this is not a surprise right? Again if we want to be like fierce warriors-hunters, with healthy testosterone levels, we must look like one, and the best way to look like a warrior is, oh surprise, being like one. (Shocking, I know). That means adopting his lifestyle. And the lifestyle of a warrior does not include staring at your computer all day with one hand in a bag of Doritos and the other… well, wherever you put it when you are surfing the web. A warrior has an active life, a warrior stays fit and ready for battle. 28 Sleep loss results in an elevation of cortisol levels the next evening.
