Brain drain is the result of our modern, stressed lives. We sleep less and work more. The people who are used to dealing with stress are so drained they can’t handle it now. Adrenaline, norepinephrine and cortisol all tax our brains. Our feel-good hormones and neurotransmitters are running too low.

People who can’t manage worry shrink their prefrontal cortex. You have to get that worry under control.

Reduce Your Worry

  • Self hypnosis, mindfulness, mediation or spending time in nature can lessen your stress.
  • Neurofeedback therapy can help.
  • Probiotics can reduce anxiety.
Listen as Dr. Mike Dow joins Dr. Susanne Bennett to discuss the factors that cause brain drain and how to feel less stressed.
