Whats In the Way?


A brain which is depressed and under stress is incapable of intuitive insight, innovation and sustaining peak performance

Most performance problems are caused by a condition called neurotoxicity.


Neurotoxicity occurs when chronic stress repeatedly floods the brain with stress hormones, shrinking higher order brain networks.

NEUROPLASTICITY
Neuroplasticity is the capacity of the brain to expand, reorganize, and better integrate higher brain function. The result is a brain that can sustain peak performance and intuition. A positively peaceful attitude literally rewires the brain.
