How Stress Can Change the Size of Our Brains and What We Can Do to Lower it.

Stress is actually good for you but it is prolonged stress with no end in sight that is bad. The options listed by the author +Belle Beth Cooper   to reduce stress are fine but my first option would be Qigong. You need an energy cultivation discipline that combines mind, body and breath. Incidentally Tai Chi is just an advanced form of Qigong.

I'm 42 years old and have had some training in various martial arts in the past (Karate, Aikido, Judo), and was looking for a quality martial arts school that would help me get back in shape. I checked out numerous schools in the area, all of different styles, and also BJJ/MMA ones. While I knew that BJJ would get me in better shape faster than many of the other arts or joining a regular gym could, like many people (especially my age) I was hesitant as I was worried about being injured. As a professional, I can't afford to miss work, and showing up to work with a black eye or broken arm just isn't an option. I knew I could get in good shape, but I just wasn't sure my body could handle it. Because of this, I really did my homework, and suggest anyone in a similar position do the same. I took over two months to find the right school, visiting as many places as I could. Other schools either had too few people to train with, or the wrong kind of atmosphere. The moment I stepped into RWMMA, I knew I had found a home. Everybody there is very welcoming, truly like a family, and we take care of each other - while you get an amazing workout, safety is paramount. You go at the pace you can handle. There is also a nice mix of folks, from high-level competitors to people there just to lose some weight, and also people of various ages. At 42, I am hardly the oldest person on the mat. Having trained now a little over 3 months, I can definitely say I made the right decision. I have lost a bit of weight and quite a few inches, and have more stamina and muscle. As opposed to doing separate strength and cardio training like I used to, I now get better results in less time. Like everybody, my time is limited due to work and other obligations, so this is a big deal to me. The techniques are not only challenging physically but also intellectually, meaning I'll keep learning for quite some time, and won't get bored like I used to on a treadmill. Lastly, there is a wonderful team environment here; I missed the feeling of being part of something bigger than myself, and at RWMMA I get that chance - whether or not we are competing, we are all helping our training partners grow. As opposed to a diet or going to the gym, which often ends up being temporary, training here inevitably becomes a lifestyle change, which sets you up for success. By being around others with a similar mindset, this change becomes even further ingrained. In addition to the fitness benefits, the techniques are of course top-notch - this is a Renzo Gracie school, and the Gracies are of course synonymous with great instruction, so in addition to getting in great shape you are of course learning to defend yourself and your family. If you are a mature professional looking for a good workout I wholeheartedly recommend RWMMA. It's a great art, at a great academy, with a great bunch of people.

Went last night for the first time about 8:30. It will not be the last. The beer menu is extensive, with everything from light pilsners and weissbeers to heavier offerings like Belgian doppel and trippel bocks. For anywhere that calls itself a brewpub that can be somewhat expected. What made me want to come back again was the food. Not only was it just as good as the beer, but it complemented it quite well. I had the meat plate and the pulled pork tater tots, both of which were outstanding. I am a very experienced beer person, but after my first order of a nice session beer, decided to put myself in the hands of my server to see how good his follow-up recommendations were. They were top notch, from the beginning to the end, and meshed well with my food choices. A great place, and I'll be back. The servers are top notch, and after talking to the chef, I can see he's committed. Strongly recommended.
