Our body👣 is a complex composition of elements that work in a magical order, as a structure, complementing each other so that we remain optimal in all aspects.
When we think of hormones, it quickly leads us in the direction of puberty, sebum excess, acne and rebelliousness. It also reminds us of ♀️women’s cycles such as pregnancy and lactation, menopause and the maturity cycle in both genders.
But in reality the hormones in our body go far 💌beyond that.
Did you know that our body has a number of glands which in turn are in charge of producing hormones and that these hormones are responsible for many functions in our 👣body?
These glands are part of our 🚶♀️endocrine system and are responsible for many of the most important functions of our body.
Knowing all this, getting our hormone system to work properly is very important as many of our bodily functions depend on it.
Wouldn’t it be great if I shared with you some simple 🎽exercises that can help you keep your hormones in check?
Let´s bring some light on the glands that are in charge of the hormone system.
Starting with the one responsible for the circadian rhythms that regulate sleep and wakefulness as well as for the secretion of the hormone melatonin which is involved in this process is the pineal gland.
The hypothalamus gland is the one which is the regulator of our body temperature, heart rate and blood pressure as well as our mood stabilizer.
And the most common of these glands are the gonads (ovaries and testicles). They are mixed glands that produce hormones in their internal secretion, which act on the organs involved in the reproductive function.
The ovaries produce the female hormones estrogen and progesterone, which help the development of female sexual characteristics. And the testicles produce the male hormones, called androgens, the most important of which is testosterone, which stimulates the production of sperm production and male sexual differentiation.
Each gonad produces the hormones of its own particular gender, but also a small quantity of those of the opposite one. All control is exercised from the hypophysis de “Master”.
The Master of all these glands is the so-called hypophysis, which gets its nickname because it receives messages from the brain to producing hormones that stimulate and regulate other endocrine glands (adrenal, thyroid, ovaries or testicles).
Which still leaves the adrenal, thyroid and parathyroid glands to complete the endocrine system. In the case of the adrenal glands they produce the hormones cortisol, aldosterone, adrenaline and noradrenaline which serve us as a flight purpose.
The parathyroids manage the calcium in our bodies, not only the amount there is in in our bones but also in our blood. The last is the thyroids whose function is to produce and release the thyroid hormones which are involved in growth, maintenance of most bodily functions and regulation of metabolism, therefore responsible for whether we gain or lose weight.
Finally here are some exercises for all ages and genders that will help you to establish harmony in your ♀️♂️hormones.
1. We start with diaphragmatic breathing 💨 for about half a minute, which will help us to distribute oxygen to all our cells and also improve the coordination and efficiency of the hormonal system.

2. Second exercise would be for the pineal, hypothalamus and pituitary glands which form a complex hub. This powerful exercise from Donna Eden and David Feinstein’s book 📙refers to a simple routine that benefits the functions of these three powerful glands offering not only balance but also helps to eliminate stress chemicals from our body.
3. Reaching out for the sun, another powerful exercise that balances the hormones that need to be balanced and brings a calmness to the body which helps to stabilize the blood pressure whether we have high or low blood pressure and is therefore a good heart exercise is “reaching out to the sun”🌞
Here are 3️⃣simple exercises that will take no more than 4 minutes from your day and which the benefits can be enormous.
