Stress Management Techniques
Stress can have a significant impact on your ability to think clearly.
When you are stressed, your body goes into a "fight or flight" mode, triggering the release of stress hormones such as cortisol & adrenaline.
These hormones can affect your brain function in several ways. Impaired Memory: Chronic stress can damage the hippocampus, a part of the brain responsible for memory formation & retrieval.
Reduced Attention: When you're stressed, your brain can become overwhelmed, leading to difficulties in focusing & paying attention.
Decreased Creativity: Stress can also hinder your ability to think creatively & come up with innovative solutions.
This is because stress can cause your brain to become stuck in repetitive patterns of thinking, making it difficult to generate new ideas.
Impaired Decision Making: When you're stressed, you may struggle to make decisions, as your ability to weigh options and consider alternatives can be impaired.
