Here are a few ways to decrease the workload of the brain to relieve it and allow more energetic and focused too!
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
Here is a list of a few ideas for unweighting the work of your brain:
Widen your stance when standing and lean your back on a wall while socializing.
EFFECT ON THE BRAIN = less work to balance
In crowds, move to the corner or the edge of the room when talking.
EFFECT ON THE BRAIN = less work for the brain to filter out other conversations
Take breaks (bathrooms are great for this) from the crowd and check in with yourself.
EFFECT ON THE BRAIN = good communication between you and your brain allows you to give it a break when it needs it before it needs to "complain" with symptoms.
Plan ahead - think about the environment that you will be in and the people that you will be interacting with and plan how to manage difficult conversations or situations.
EFFECT ON THE BRAIN = so much easier to deal with life when the actual capacity of the brain's activity is considered.
Most importantly - remember that doing things that make you happy release happy hormones in our brains and that is self medicating in a great way 😁 so enjoy the holiday and ...
