Have you ever had a feeling you forgot something or you cannot quickly recall it, perhaps some sort of confusion?. I am sure you had. It happens because stress has a huge impact on our brain, memory and our feelings.
In case of stress you release high level of cartisol that destroys glucose and your brain is loosing ability to retrieve data. Dehydratation will make it even worse.
Symptoms of stress:
- dificulty in concentrating;
- anxiety, irritation;
- constant tiredness;

How to manage stress:
- Go for 15-minute walk, no matter what is weather;
- Reduce tea, coffee, cola. Drink more water;

Go out. Computers, mobiles Wi-Fi, air conditioning can have damaging effects. The concentration of negative ions in the air -the number in each cubic centimeter – affects the level of serotonin in your blood and this affects your ability of thinking. In mountains should be around 4ooo ions per cubic centimeter; while in a common office with air-condition around 150 per cubic centimeter
Remember, thinking becomes slower under an excessive level of stress. So take care, drink at least about 2 litees of water, go for a walk a few times per day and let yourself to get some rest from all computer devices and so on.
