In a phenomenon less well recognized, but still widely known, light stress can slightly improve performance — say, in examinations — whereas heavy stress causes dysfunction." "This should come as no surprise that excess stress can lead to faulty decisions. Being able to remove the things to lead to stress will only help improve decisions." Lots of people are experiencing extra stress now - although perhaps a bit less now that we are all getting numb to the pandemic and learning to cope with it.

Exercising 2. Meditation 3. Awareness of your inner self 4. Eating 500 Cherry Snowcones 5. Being in nature 6. Getting plenty of sleep Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
