Reduce stress

stress reduces brain performance

Stress is the body’s response to a life or death situation. Only extended over long periods of time. When we are in a dangerous situation the body releases a boost of adrenaline to make us more aware of our surrounding to make the correct choice of fight or flight.

This is a perfect reaction to one-off events. However, if this situation continues over longer periods of time, the brain is subjected to adrenaline too long and starts to suffer. It can no longer perform at its best.

Modern life replicates the sense of danger with mental threats to livelihood such as anxiety about having a job, the reaction of a job, regret about customer service, time pressure and the vast array of other elements cause these repeated hits of adrenaline.

Try to reduce your stress as much as possible to allow your brain to concentrate on its own growth and so it can focus on the important things in your day-to-day.  Try out techniques such as meditation or music therapy, goal setting and distractions through hobbies or travel to get your brain to recuperate.
