“Stress Hormone” Cortisol Linked to Early Toll on Thinking Ability


Wakeout was designed to help people take frequent active breaks. Frequent breaks are proven to help curve your stress levels. Stress can have a devastating effect on your long-term health, and can impair your ability to think clearly in the short term. But I wasn’t aware of this:

Higher cortisol levels, measured in subjects’ blood, were also found to be associated with physical changes in the brain that are often seen as precursors to Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia

With studies showing that stress is on the rise, there’s never been a more pressing need for new habits. We’re hoping we can help with Wakeout and other products in the coming years.


Thank you so much for committing to that mission! Wakeout has been really helpful these days. I can’t stop talking about it. These tiny little habits have been keeping me afloat. :clap::clap::clap::raised_hands::pray:
