Every speaker at the Neuroleadership Summit in San Francisco earlier this month shared some incredible insights and fascinating science – a personal highlight for me was hearing Jessica Payne speak about the neuroscience of Stress, Sleep, Memory and Cognition.
I thought her tips were especially important and very practical – so we had a chat in front of the camera to share some of the gold with you… nevermind that I was slightly jet-lagged! I certainly understood the value of her comments. I’m sure many of you know that long-term chronic stress was my undoing about 9 years ago, and it’s been a long road to recovering my health – especially brain health.
Many people I talk to are under too much stress, for too long, and changes need to be made before your body makes a serious change for you. As Jessica says, moderate stress is ok, but would you describe your stress as moderate and useful, or unhealthy? Does it keep you awake at night? Does it affect your clarity of thinking? Your general wellbeing or relationships?
Here’s some simple tips to help – enjoy the video and find a small change you can make to support your best asset – your brain.
If you realise that you are not in a healthy state at the moment, please see a health specialist, and find some simple ways to reduce overwhelm and create clarity. Coaching can also make a significant difference.
