Stress is often perceived as a negative factor that impairs learning and performance. However, according to neuroscientist Andrew Huberman, stress can also be a powerful ally that enhances learning and growth, if used properly.
Learning is a complex process that involves the formation and consolidation of new neural connections in the brain. It requires attention, motivation, repetition, and feedback to achieve optimal results. However, learning can also be exhausting and frustrating, especially when the material is challenging or boring. How can we enhance our learning efficiency and enjoyment without spending more time or effort?
Conversational threading is a technique that allows you to navigate a conversation without running out of things to say. It’s a tool that helps you seamlessly transition from one topic to another, in order to keep the conversation flowing.
