This is your brain on chronic stress.
Wow! How important is that family in how you handle stress! I’ve been watching Humans of New York’s series on inmates in the prison system. I wonder if the inmate’s family structures didn’t allow for a nurturing family, so their ability to handle stress doesn’t work so well. Then perhaps that contributes to their propensity to commit crime… or at least get caught participating in a crime. Just a hypothesis.
Well, let’s not kid ourselves, you’re probably ready to watch some foozball game. Maybe that’s a stress reliever for you! Let’s all get to it!
