If so, this presentation will be of interest to you.

Stress overcomes us all and is vital for our survival. However chronic
stress can also become a serious health hazard.
One of the many side effects of stress is lowered cognitive functioning
(among many other symptoms stress can also cause sleeping problems,
increased agitation, back problems, lowered immune function...). In
other words mindlessness, which can lead to making the wrong decisions,
cause inspiration numbness, fright, panic, forgetfulness, loss of focus,...
or having the ‘yips’. Yips is a term used mainly in golf
and which denotes the panic moment that overtakes us at a crucial moment.
Writers can also experience this feeling as writer's-block - due to
cortical inhibition. Cortical what? Cortical inhibition is a
term that describes what happens to us when fear, tension or frustration
takes the upper hand and short-circuits memory and thinking. This presentation
“From mindlessness to mindfulness” is all about going from
cortical inhibition back to cortical facilitation and is based on the
principles of Body - Coaching a new approach in elementary health care.
