How To Raise And Train Your Brain

I was talking to a Neuropsychologist yesterday, and I learned
something so fantastic, I thought I’d pass it along. Here it is: When
you get scared the blood runs from your head into your body to fuel
your fight or flight response, and guess what, you can’t think. That’s
why, if you stop and breathe deeply, you recover. You give oxygen to
your blood, and bring it back to your teeny-beany.
Gee, whenever someone has told me, “Relax, and take a deep
breath,” I just found it annoying, condescending. It’s like, “Have a
nice day” or, “Thank you for shopping at Ralph’s” Or there are those
types of woo-woo people who talk about breathing in and out, and
loving everyone, but you never see them out of the house, testing that
philosophy with a car mechanic of a Best Buy salesman. Loving everyone
works fine in a room full of of aromas, herbs, and candles, but try it
in a parking garage. I’ve always trusted my sheer brawn over breathing
deeply. I can tell you, though, that when I get lost driving I get to
a point when I can’t tell if numbers are going up or down. I often get
so frustrated I have turn off the cd player, and yell at my kids. This
breathing thing is so crazy it might just work.
