Stress and the mind

Start learning

What is this lesson is about?

Imagine you're sitting in your garden. Reading a book. And then, just loud enough to discern, you hear a stealthy slither. You look up - BAM - you find yourself face to face with a hissing cobra. It’s tongue is tasting the air. And it’s looking...right...at...you…

Time stops. The world falls away. All you can see are the cobra's black beady eyes. Locked on yours. Nothing else exists. Nothing else matters. 

Now, take away the cobra. Because the reaction you experienced is typical of stress. And stress can be caused by lots of things. Not just cobras. And in this lesson, we’ll look closer at this reaction. 

We’ll talk about: 
• Why our brain goes into fight or flight mode, even when we’re not in danger
• What happens in our brain when we’re stressed 🤯
• What chronic stress can do do our brain
• How to get our body back to baseline 🧘🏾‍♀️
