The brain-shrinking monster

Stress can shrink your brain:

Essentially, the researchers say, stress can addle your mind and make you older. But there's good news too: Exercise can make a huge difference. And, in the case of the brain at least, time might heal the wounds caused by stress.

Exercise is great, of course, but there's another way to beat stress: Take a tea break. Sounds good, doesn't it.

In fact, I think I'll have some tea right now.

This is your brain on stress. Any questions?
