Problem #2: Difficulty Managing Stress
Just as the muscles of the body need to be moved and stretched to become flexible, so does the brain. To change the way we manage stress, it is important to take advantage of neuroplasticity – the ability of the brain to adjust to new environments and to learn new things. By challenging your brain to master new tasks, you help it gain new connections and greater capacity to recognize new patterns of thought and action. Essentially, a highly adaptable brain will learn new ways to respond to situations and thereby experience a reduced perception of stress.
