Hey, it’s Marie Forleo and you are watching MarieTV, the place to be to create a business
and a life that you love like this. Now, today I wanna talk to you about something that we
all do that is scientifically proven to make us dumber. Now, the good news is that we can
all stop doing it immediately and the fix really is quite simple. So what are we doing
that makes us dumber?
It has to do with stress.
Now, don't stress out about this, because, as I shared, there is a fix. But first let’s
make something super, super clear. In life there is good stress and there’s bad stress.
Now, good stress can spur your body into action, say if you’re getting chased by a big bear
or you heard there’s just one more cupcake left in the breakroom.
See? If you embrace stress in high pressure situations, it can actually help you perform
at your best. But what I’m talking about here is the bad stress, the chronic stress,
the kind that makes most of us just crazy pants. The kind of stress that makes you feel
anxious and frustrated and like everything is happening outside of your control. Now,
here’s what’s super scary about this bad kind of stress: research shows that this kind
actually makes you stupid.
Neuroscientists at the University of California Berkeley have found that chronic stress triggers
long term changes in brain structure and function.
And the stress hormone cortisol can kill, shrink, and stop the generation of new neurons
in the part of the brain called the hippocampus, which is vital for learning, memory, and emotional
Meaning? Stress makes you dumber and more prone to anxiety, depression, meltdowns, and
embarrassing hissy fits. So you might be asking, what’s the fix? Well, it actually comes
from one of my favorite teachers of all time, Mr. Eckhart Tolle.
He says: “All stress is caused by being here, but wanting to be there.”
Now, another way to say that is that all stress comes from wanting something to be different
than it is. Wanting whatever’s happening right now to somehow not be happening right
now, which is impossible because whatever is happening in this moment already is, and
wishing it was different is totally useless. And, as we said, it does shrink your brain.
So let’s make this actionable so that the next time you find yourself in stress mode
you have a simple toolkit to not only quickly get yourself out of stress mode, but also
to save yourself and your brain from some unnecessary shrinkage.
Shrinkage stopper number 1: make isness your business. So that means you wanna embrace
whatever is happening right now. So you wanna say yes to your isness. Really just like hug
the moment, so to speak. Because wishing it wasn’t so or going into any drama about
what already is done does you nothing but harm, and it hurts your brain. Plus making
isness your business doesn't make you a doormat and it doesn't mean that you’re not gonna
take action to change the situation. It means that you get yourself tight and right on the
inside so that if you do take action, if you can take action, it’s actually from a place
of clarity, not from a place of…
Shrinkage stopper number 2: recognize you have only 2 choices, so pick one. Now, here’s
what I mean. Once you make isness your business and get yourself tight and right on the inside,
realize you have 2 options to move ahead. Option number one is take action, meaning
do something about the situation. So pick up the phone, ask for help, set a gameplan
in place, have that tough talk, be an adult. Do whatever you’ve got to do if there is
something that can actually be done. And if there’s not something that can be done,
there’s option number two.
Option number two: car dance. Now, some situations are like being stuck in traffic. There is
nothing you can do about it. So you’ve got to make the best of it. Because, really, like,
what other choice is there? You can, of course, curse, you can melt down, you can honk your
horn and all the other cars honking their horns, or you can crank up the tunes and you
can dance it out. Now, that’s what I used to do whenever I was stuck in the Holland
tunnel when I lived in Jersey trying to get into the city and, I’ve gotta say, not only
did it help me not stress myself out, but I also gave myself a six pack.
And that, my friend, is how not to make yourself dumb. So let’s wrap this up on a Tweetable.
“Stress comes from resisting what is. If you want less stress, make isness your business.”
Now I would love to hear from you. What’s one specific situation that seems to stress
you out on a consistent basis? And what negative impact does that create for you and, of course,
for those around you? And what would change if you no longer allowed yourself at all to
stress about that situation?
Now, as always, the best discussions happen after the episode over at MarieForleo.com,
