We all get stressed out from time to time, right? (My hand is raised.)

But did you know stress can actually shrivel your brain like a California raisin? No joke. Research shows that chronic stress triggers long-term changes in brain structure and function, and not in a good way.

Specifically, making you more prone to anxiety and depression while making it harder for you to focus, learn and remember new things. Serious stuff.

If you’re like me and want your brain to stay plump and healthy, today’s MarieTV is a must watch. Because let’s face it, stress happens. That part is largely out of our control.

But what we can control is how we respond.

That’s why it’s vital to have a simple toolkit to not only get out of stress mode more quickly, but also save our brains from unnecessary and dangerous shrinkage.

Once you’ve had a chance to watch, I’d love to know:

What’s ONE specific situation that stresses you out on a consistent basis? What negative impact does that create for you and those around you? And — what would change if you no longer allowed that situation to stress you out?  

This is a really powerful question to ask and answer in writing. “Thinking about it” is not enough. So be brave and leave your answer in the comments below.

Remember to share as much detail as possible as thousands of incredible souls come here each week for insight and inspiration. Your story may be just what someone else needs to have a breakthrough.

Important: please share your thoughts and ideas directly in the comments. Links to other posts, videos, etc. will be deleted as they come across as spammy.

You’ve got beautiful things to experience and achieve in this life. A strong, healthy brain is essential to making all of that happen.

Thanks for reading, watching and sharing with such love. Your generosity never ceases to amaze me.

With so much appreciation,
