“In the moment, you’ve got to keep breathing.” — Dr. David Levy Many people feel stressed and burned out from time to time. Our fast-paced, tech-driven culture makes it difficult to relax and unwind at the end of the day. And, although the holiday season is filled with joy and fun, it’s also one of the most stressful times of the year. Between tying up loose ends before the end of the year at work, planning holiday parties and traveling to visit family and friends, it can leave people feeling frazzled and on-edge. In this Takeover Tuesday episode, Dermot Buffini talks to Dr. David Levy, neurosurgeon and bestselling author of “Gray Matter: A Neurosurgeon Discovers the Power of Prayer…One Patient at a Time.” Dr. Levy discusses why he became a cerebrovascular surgeon and explains the effects of stress on the brain. You’ll learn why stress turns adults into fiery two-year-olds, the impact our phones and technology have on our brains and stress levels, and why breathing is the ultimate stress buster. Dr. Levy shares his tips for eliminating stress and finding calm in our daily lives and also offers great advice for enhancing relationships with our loved ones that we all can use during this festive season. Turn off your smartphone’s notifications, take a few deep breaths and let Dr. Levy help you tackle stress more effectively.   Inspirational quotes from today’s interview: “I’ve always been driven to do the most difficult thing.” — Dr. David Levy “Confidence helps you know you can do it; you know you can figure it out.” — Dr. David Levy “In the moment, you’ve got to keep breathing.” — Dr. David Levy “We’re unaware of how much stress we’re under.” — Dermot Buffini “When you’re under stress, you want something but you can’t have it; you have to exert your self-control.” — Dr. David Levy “Be aware of what’s going on in your body and take a few moments to breathe.” — Dr. David Levy “Long-term living under stress shrinks parts of your brain.” — Dr. David Levy “The behavioral problems have to do with the fact that we have poor relationships. We’re not handling things as well as we think so we become overstimulated.” — Dr. David Levy “The brain needs stimulation, but it also needs the quiet.” — Dr. David Levy “Everyone wants attention and they’re looking for attention from the important people.” — Dr. David Levy “The reason you have stress, ultimately, is because whatever you’re stressed about means something to you. It’s important that your will works out in that situation.” — Dr. David Levy “People can’t give you what they don’t have.” — Dr. David Levy “When we measure grace to our parents, we don’t have to live in shame and guilt anymore.” — Dr. David Levy “Forgiveness is not saying it didn’t matter; it’s saying I’m not going to look to them to pay that debt anymore.” — Dr. David Levy “Know your motivations. If you know your motivations, it makes you wise.” — Dr. David Levy   Mentioned in the episode: Gray Matter: A Neurosurgeon Discovers the Power of Prayer…One Patient at a Time by Dr. David Levy Dr. David Levy website: http://drdlevy.com/ Wild at Heart by John Eldredge   Connect with Brian Buffini http://www.brianbuffini.com Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/brianbuffini Twitter: https://twitter.com/brianbuffini Buffini Show Insiders: http://www.thebrianbuffinishow.com/insiders Love what you heard?
