Are you confused?
During the show, Jeremy asks Dr. Rabin a very interesting question. He wondered if the body would go into a confused state if the device was put on ‘relax’ mode and at the same time, iconic hard-rock songs by Foo Fighters were to be played. For Dr. Rabin, this question opens up an essential point. He answers the questions with a “yes” and proceeds to explain that this is precisely how most people experience stress on a regular basis. It all starts with a confusing mix of signals. He describes how the scenario in the question can be compared to a lot of our day-to-day situations. Mixed signals, for example, happen when you simultaneously try to focus on an important report and think about your other reports that are overdue. When these mixed signals happen, your brain and body cannot pinpoint the orientation that it needs to be in. And when this kind of state continues, as a result, restlessness happens and can give birth to a lot of other chronic discomforts.
