The brain has an important little place called the amygdala - that's Greek for almond and that's about it's size. Sometime the amygdala gets confused and can hijack our frontal lobes over common everyday challenges which means we won't be thinking very rationally. Of course, sometimes the threat is real and we should be fighting or fleeing (or we might even freeze). Some simple tips for pulling our brain back online when the threat does not involve lions, tigers, or bears is saved in this pdf for you to download. It involves a sensory countdown, focused breathing, using nature, and more. I hope you find it useful, either for yourself or a loved one.
