Poverty itself is a cause of chronic anxiety, and the children growing up in the slums shed their American dream as their brain doesn’t work to develop new brain cells. Stress produces a steroid named Glucoconticoids, which can be toxic to neurons.

You already know the results.
Did you know that the immune system, antibodies, and neuropeptides of both children and adults who experience chronic stress like poverty, are disproportionately prone to disease, and die before their normal span of years? Do you know that the nervous mind could begin generating a cascade of neurons in any stage of life, and strengthen the immune system? It requires a ritual of mind exercises and psychological strategies based on an improved environment.
It features manual, cognitive and mental activities to awaken general memory and learning functions. Regular viewing and involvement with the TV show, Jeopardy, and the Discovery Channel programs, challenge audiences to learn and recall. Net are important teachers resulting in personal youth. The statistics demonstrate that the cliché, use-it-or-lose-it, is a reality. BIS requiring just two-minutes. He calls it the Pran Mudra, we identify it as a V for Victory sign.
- Please sit down, feet flat on the ground, shoulders back on the seat. Eyes opened, your left hand lying on your top of your left leg. V-for-Victory sign with another two-fingers. It’s about a dozen times.
- Double the advantage of this strategy by keeping a Duchenne (eyes and mouth), Smile during the whole two-minutes.
- Now close your eyes to the next one-minute of the BIS. Simultaneously mentally-visualize both your hands performing the physical exercise.
- You’ll be opening your eyes in a few seconds.
This target-affirmation increases your vibrational-frequency for a continuous flow of energy. Chronic stress is the silent-killer since it opens us to diseases and reduces our life-span.
