Stop Your Brain From Being Hijacked

Stress hijacks your brain. The fear center (amygdala) becomes hyperactive under stress

and hijacks rational thinking (prefrontal cerebral cortex). Also, affected is memory storage and learning (hippocampus). The result: you can’t think straight, you can’t remember and you can’t take in new information. All of which leads to poor decisions. Mindfulness prevents and intervenes on this hijacking process by deactivating the amygdala, and increasing memory and learning. A daily mindfulness practice can ensure hijacking prevention. A little mindful mojo goes a long way!
