Frequent complaining shrinks your hippocampus?
The hippocampus – the area of your brain that enables you to problem solve and be the intelligent human you are.
~ Yes, it does, according a study by Stanford University. And, just when the news couldn’t seem to be worse, the stress hormone, Cortisol, ‘floods’ the brain when you frequently complain. And, according a recent study by University of California Davis, over production of Cortisol impairs your immune system and creates susceptibility to higher levels of the ‘bad’ cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease and obesity. Sustained high levels of this stress hormone makes one vulnerable to strokes.
The Take Away?
~Be a solution finder, not a problem dweller.
