When the Body Displaces the Mind
By Tom Meyers

Stress overcomes us all and it is vital for our survival. However stress can also become a serious health hazard when our natural antidote mechanisms are compromised due to over use.

One of the many side effects of stress (and as many as 80% of all illnesses can be related to stress) is lowered cognitive functioning. In other words mindlessness which can lead to making the wrong decisions, inspiration numbness, fright, panic, forgetfulness, loss of focus,... or having "yips", a term used mainly in golf and which denotes the panic moment that overtakes us at a crucial moment due to cortical inhibition. 

Cortical what? Cortical inhibition a term that describes what happens to us when fear, tension or frustration takes the upper hand. So how does stress activate this cortical inhibition and what can we do to overcome it and create cortical facilitation? 

Around this predicament Tom will build his presentation: “From mindlessness to mindfulness”. I will give a brief introduction of the physiology of stress and share some easy to learn tools to help you master the yips, lessen the yips over time and become alert, mindful and focused again.
