Key Parts of the Brain
The brain is made up of three different parts: the cerebrum, the cerebellum, and the brain stem. The cerebrum is where the brain processes stress and deploys the release of hormones within the body.
Where Stress Accumulates in the Body
When we experience stress, the brain sends hormones all over the body as part of a defense mechanism, also knowns as our “fight or flight” reflex. Over time, chronic stress can be detrimental to the body, causing harm to the different organs and systems.
A Simple Mindfulness Exercise
A mindfulness activity is an excellent way to feel centered. This exercise will help you improve your focus while at the same time providing a mental checkout when you need a break.
1. Find a quiet place without distractions.
2. Stand with your feet shoulder width apart.
3. Close your eyes and take a long, slow, deep breath in through your nose and blow it out slowly through your mouth. Count by fives until you reach 100.
4. When you have completed your slow count to 100, open your eyes and get back to work, leveraging your improved focus.
