Neuroscience will help you as an entrepreneur

We will explore the causes of stress in this essay as well as strategies for coping with it. I strongly suggest reading this essay to everyone who experiences stress in their life. The speaker is well-known neuroscientist Dr. Tara Swart, who is skilled at explaining neuroscience in simple terms. We shall go deeper into these themes and find information that we can use to better ourselves. You may be affected in almost every element of life by the stress of other people, and you can be affected in almost every aspect of life by the people you are around. Please take the medical words with a grain of salt because I am not a neuroscientist and I have just given a basic, logical explanation of them. If you would like to learn more, I recommend that you listen to Dr. Tara Swart’s lectures.


A certain amount of stress is beneficial, that is, stress that rises and falls; nevertheless, if stress becomes constant and stays high, it may be very harmful to both you and the people around you. In short, “vibe” refers to how something or someone makes you feel. It is a word that young people use to describe feelings such as “that person has a bad vibe.” Stress is contagious, which astonished and astounded me. She also noted that women are more likely to experience stress than men. I myself have never understood this and have always believed that if you are mentally unprepared or unhappy, you will perceive the world as an unhappy place. who are more closely knit at work, school, or in other social settings will time their menstrual cycles with one another. Dr. Tara Swart mentions something that causes the podcast to go off course. She explained to podcast presenter Steven Bartlett that she exclusively looks at him in his left eye, which forges a stronger relationship and connection. This is explained by the fact that a right-handed woman will use her left hand to hold her infant or perform tasks so that her stronger hand can be used for work or other activities. She looks at the infant, focusing on the left eye since it is the closest to her. Given that the majority of people are right-handed, Dr. Swart claims that she made the assumption that his mother was right-handed.

We have a natural hierarchy, and it must also be tied to survival. In troop settings, the stress experienced by the silverback gorilla affects the other gorillas more than it does the gorillas that are close to each other. Not only in your social circle but also at work, you have definitely experienced exhaustion after spending time with someone and are unsure of why. The manager or leader in that job affects everyone around him more than anyone affects each other, as Dr. Tara Swart points out. This silverback example also occurs in organizations. Psychologically, they’re going to know and feel it even if you don’t talk about the tension or the negative event. Stress has been linked to belly fat since the prehistoric era, when stress allowed one to accumulate fat in order to survive. Steven Bartlett wonders what he could do if someone was under a lot of stress and had a high cortisol level. Acknowledging that you are stressed and producing cortisol is a good first step towards being more relaxed. Other strategies include journaling, talking to a friend or therapist about your problems aloud, or exercising to flush the cortisol from your body. The solution is to break this cycle that keeps repeating itself inside our heads, which is the main source of stress.

Getting enough sleep is crucial because it’s one of the most vital things we do. When asked how important sleep is and how crucial it is for stress relief, she responds strongly. She acknowledges that certain individuals, such as parents or night shift workers, can’t get a decent night’s sleep and says she can’t stop talking about how vital it is. While this may not be the case for everyone, eight hours and fifteen minutes is the recommended amount of sleep. Sleeping longer than that might be depressing and affect your mood. She mentioned that sleeping on your side is better for this cleansing process, which is very interesting to hear about more because it is advised to sleep on your right side in Islam according to the Sunnah, or the way that Muhammad (SAW) lived. The cleansing process begins at night and takes ninety minutes to complete. I could discuss this for hours, but the more I study and gain experience, the more I realize that my religion is the truth.



It’s not a matter of men vs. women; rather, it’s about women being more willing to follow their instincts and comprehend them better. In other words, women are more likely than men to believe in their intuition. Dr. Tara Swart says that while she was educating these senior leaders on intuition, one of the young guys jumped and said, “Of course I’m not going to make important decisions with my intuition,” to which the more experienced senior leaders replied, “Of course that’s the best way to make your decision.” More individuals are realizing that intuition is a superpower and that using it to make decisions should be your main strategy.

Since your life experiences are stored in your body and mind rather than in your memory, wisdom and intuition are the things that repeat themselves and you are aware of them, while intuition is the thing that repeats itself but is stored in your nervous system and you are not aware of it.

A purpose gives our lives meaning, and Dr. Tara Swart and Steven Bartlett compared it to the prehistoric era, when being alone could have resulted in exclusion from a group. This is why having a purpose is crucial for mental health. I’ve observed this in both my personal and professional lives: for a team to feel cohesive and motivated to perform well, each member needs to feel as though they have a purpose or are fulfilling a necessary task. I never realized that having a creative mind is crucial for mental health as well. Dr. Tara Swart says that creativity is a sign of security. We value aesthetics, and having them around us increases our sense of safety by creating a familiar and similar environment. Dr. Tara Swart, for instance, tells of how she once woke up to find that she had left chopped lemons in the kitchen, and she was immediately drawn to the aroma, which made her feel more at ease and secure.

We no longer live like cavemen and are disconnected from the innate human traits and behaviors that are also vital to our survival. Our society is made up of a vast majority of individuals who feel alone, unsatisfied, and lacking in purpose. We live in four walls and are not as connected to people or the natural world as we once were. Corona helped us connect to nature, but it had a negative impact on our social lives. We have replaced sex with porn and food with anything that tastes good, satisfying our basic brain drivers more quickly.


Dr. Tara Swart is very critical of choosing who is going to be in her friend group or as she calls it her tribe, it goes back to people’s emotions are contagious and also their behavior and actions, I study conducted says that if someone in your friend group gets divorced its 50 percent more likely for you to get divorced. I have to agree with her very much on this topic, it has been embedded into me to choose the right friends from a religion aspect and a cultural aspect and also a business aspect, I know that many of us has heard this quote by Dan Pena “Show me your friends and I’ll show you your future.”. Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said: “Man is influenced by the Faith of his friends. Therefore, be careful of whom you befriend.” Narrated by Abu Dawud Tirmidhi. Many people have talked about the importance of befriending the correct people for you and your future.

Have you ever wished to change your behavior or thoughts? It is possible to accomplish that over the age of 25, according to neuroplasticity. Up to the age of 25, the brain is constantly developing and changing, but you can still change it after that age. As Dr. Swart states, “half of the battle is already one,” and the first step towards changing your behaviour or cognitive process is realizing that you want to break this habit. Once you’ve decided you want to break this habit, the next step is to figure out what motivates you to do it. Once you have this information, you may go further to uncover your beliefs and the reason behind your behaviour. Making that road more robust than the previous one begins with baby steps. For example, if you are an overthinker, start by knowing what happens and correcting it by 50 percent, and after doing that, do it for 75 percent. It takes time to change your behaviour. In the end, this new, better behaviour you have trained will become your identity.
