Restart Your Brain PDF Print E-mail

Susan Nolen-Hoeksema, a Yale University psychologist, has specialized in the study of the tendency for people to worry when faced with a major challenge. Worrying can stop or significantly inhibit moving forward and overcoming the challenge. Nolen-Hoeksema recommends distractions which will deactivate negative and worrisome thoughts.

Use a martial arts technique as a positive way to disengage negative thinking. When faced with a daunting challenge, solutions sometimes seem overwhelming.  Take a short break, and moved into a martial arts technique or form. The short break will help to "restart the brain."
