Exhaustion, age, stress… there are times when our brain shows signs of fatigue, our mental alertness feels like it’s deteriorating and our memory seems punctured with many small holes. Yet our neurons are still firing as they should, but general fatigue and accumulated stress affect the body and slow cognitive functions. Time to slow down. We can also reduce our stress, do more physical activity, get in touch with nature, try active transportation, a healthy diet and taking tonic herbs to revive the youthful ardour of our cognitive faculties. In short, rest our bodies while keeping our spirit active!
