This is an interesting article because it demonstrates what happens when the pressure is on and we enter a fight or flight state and cannot bring ourselves back to a calm, relaxed presence. In the Oriental Martial Arts, it has been known for a very long time that our worst enemy is ourself and our automatic and mechanical reactions to a current challenge.
Enjoy the article and think about NeurOPTIMAL Brain Training because we can train your brain to recognize that it is producing these negative states that will only work against you since ‘calm’ is our most effective state. And we can train the brain to not only recognize its spending way too much energy and then DROP the negative reactions and remain present, here, right now.
