How to Tell Your Brain to Go to Sleep Already

Sleep is a mysterious thing that is still not very well understood by science. It is regulated largely by neurotransmitter activity in our brains, meaning that it’s fair to say that to a great extent, your brain decides when you will go to sleep. However, if you’ve ever found yourself lying awake at night, willing yourself to go to sleep, you may have wished desperately that the conscious, “thinking” part of your brain would just please talk to the other part of your brain that decides whether or not to let you fall asleep. While it’s frustrating that you can’t just use your thoughts to send the right neurotransmitter to the right brain areas, you can use your intelligence and...

With a finite supply of energy and a seemingly-infinite series of tasks before us, it’s unfortunately all too common for people to run out of their energy before they run out of tasks. Reining in the pace or reducing the amount of tasks isn’t always an option.

Does Stress Cause Brain Damage?

Question for Dr. Tenney (creator of the Energy by Science product);  Dear Dr. Tenney,  I've heard that stress can affect my brain. Is this true? Can stress actually cause brain damage?  Sincerely, Interested reader Answer:  Absolutely! According to the latest science, stress even shrinks the entire brain at a faster rate than natural aging does. Science shows how stress impacts the brain and literally destroys brain tissue and even breaks down the blood-brain barrier (the very important lining that protects the brain from infectious agents). A recent Yale University study published in the Journal of Biological Psychiatry found that those with more adverse life events had greater shrinkage of the brain in certain areas of the brain. Articles from the Journal...
