Stress Literally Shrinks Your Brain (7 Ways To Reverse This Effect)

Stress wrecks havoc on the human body, and one of the organs it can do a lot of damage to is the brain. A research study out of Yale has discovered that stress can shrink brain matter, but luckily there are seven noted techniques that can reverse the effect of stress on the brain. These include letting go of past grudges, learning to say “no”, and being present and mindful in the moment.

Key Takeaways:

  • Researchers found that stress reduces the volume of grey matter in the areas of the brain responsible for self-control.
  • Experiencing stress actually makes it more difficult to deal with future stress because it diminishes your ability to take control of the situation
  • To be calm and productive you need to recognize your weaknesses and ask for help when you need it.

“It’s not impossible to reduce your stress levels; you just need to make managing stress a higher priority if you want to reverse this effect.”
