Chronic stress creates a chemical imbalance in the brain that prompts some to turn to drugs and alcohol to provide the endorphins necessary to create inner calm and tranquility. Unfortunately, drug addiction and alcoholism has been criminalized rather than treated as a health issue. The question is, can this reliance on other substances to correct the chemical imbalance created by stress be a hereditary tendancy? What if chronic stress has been a way of life for so many generations in your family that you are now born without the capacity to produce the necessary endorphins to enable you to cope with stress without a mental breakdown? Dr. Kenneth Nave, author of A Season of Afflictions, shares his research and discovery about how the stress of injustice, racial inequality, and daily threats to ones well being can, over time, have an effect on ones genes. What are we producing in our children? Is there a reason why the violence among youth has escalated? Is it hereditary or learned behavior? How do we reverse this trend? Dr. Nave shares his findings and introduces his upcoming book which exposes some shocking developments

I am so excited as we continue our Neuroscience month, to bring this week's guest and author!
Don Joseph Goewey managed the department of psychiatry at Stanford Medical School, ran a regional emergency medical services system, and for twelve years headed an internationally recognized institute that pioneered an approach to catastrophic life events. He has worked with some of the most stressful situations on earth—with people facing terminal illness, parents struggling with the loss of a child, prisoners adjusting to a life sentence, and refugees of the genocidal war in Bosnia struggling with extreme post-traumatic stress. He spent six years directing a think tank aimed at integrating breakthroughs in neuroscience and psychology. From this work, he innovated a model for changing brain structure to extinguish stress reactions and amplify the higher brain function that enables a human being to flourish.
HIs new book is groundbreaking and can help anyone deal more effectively with stress.(order it here) Learn more about Don here.

3 Tips for managing stress and feeling confident and calm by Barb Schmidt author, THE PRACTICE
1. Meditation- The first tip I always suggest is meditation. Starting your day in stillness and peace is setting the tone for your whole day. In a five minute meditation you are training your mind by placing your attention on your breath, not engaging the thoughts, practicing being patient, and spending time with yourself, connecting with that deep place of calmness and strength. This time in the morning grounds you as you go into your day with the knowing you are carrying this peace with you. You’ve taken this precious time to be present with your breath; with yourself.
2. Breathe. Give yourself permission to Stop! Even in the most stressful or chaotic situations, I find that if I just take a small step back, close my eyes and focus on my breath, for just a minute, I find peace and relief. Many times we get caught up with the whirlwind of life and forget to breathe! Having this one small tip in your back pocket can bring so much clarity to your life.
3. Stay in the present moment. Do not allow your mind to wander back to what has already transpired or forward to the “what ifs” of the future. Gently bring your mind back to the present, with your breath, an affirmation or your sacred mantra, to what is right now, and tackle any problem you may be experiencing from there. You are in control of your own mind, produce thoughts that are beneficial for your life in this very moment

For some people, stress and pressure are badges of honor. Many people talk proudly of how much stress they are under. The implication is that these people are stressed because they are doing very important work and have a significant amount of responsibility.
On the other hand, for some people, admitting to having stress is a display of weakness. Women (studies show) feel more comfortable using the term "stress" than men. They describe feelings of overwhelm, anxiety, and tension as stress. Even depression is often described as a symptom or a result of stress.
Whatever we call it, prolonged stress is not healthy and should not be touted as an essential part of life. However, new findings have come to light that tell us it is not the stress itself that is dangerous but whether or not we believe we are stressed. In other words, it's the way we "feel" about stress that makes stress stressful.
So, if we feel stress is harmful and we talk about how bad stress is for us, we make it even worse. If we don't see stress as bad or harmful, it won't be. The power of the mind should not be underrated. You can do lots of simple things to manage your stress. Join Choices host, Judi Moreo, author of You Are More Than Enough, and learn what you can do.
