A popular analogy about the central nervous system goes like this: every person has a cup, which represents the central nervous system. With every stressor added to a person's life, water is poured into the cup. Training, lack of sleep, inflammatory food — all water into the cup. Too many stressors and the cup overflows, causing negative side effects to a person's mental and physical state.

So what's the trick? How do we pour water out of our cup and allow our central nervous system to preform optimally?
