Today’s stressors can take their toll on an individual and when they do, serious conditions may occur. Dr. Jockers is joined by Tara Peterson, a certified health coach and behavioral change specialist, to let us know that the brain deserves a break, too! She explains how this break can be initiated and the dangers of not allowing it the chance to rest when it’s needed.

“In the world, we live in today, there’s a lot of stress and anxiety. Using stress management can be really beneficial.”
