Life is but a balancing act. Sometimes, life can be messy, hectic, and downright difficult. How can we find balance and not let the hardships sink our ship?? How can we stay afloat during times of loss, grief and intense emotional turmoil?
The good news is there is always a light, or a beacon to help keep us moving forward. Being human, we have the incredible ability to reshape and reprogram our mind and therefore our life.
Making simple cognitive (mindful) shifts every day can actually reprogram our thoughts and patterns of thinking. I have been studying neuroscience, intently, since I was a child, as the brain is a fascinating tool that we still have so much to learn about. Humans have the ability to create new neurological connections and pathways; which in turn, change us on a biochemical level.
We have the power and ability to change our thoughts and reprogram negative thinking with positive thoughts. Making simple shifts like stopping yourself when you start being overly critical of yourself and replacing negative spirals with positivity. The brain can do wondrous things when exercised properly.
I am a firm believer in neuroplasticity training; the art of training the brain through neural connections. Every time you learn something new or memorize information, you’re creating a new connection. Reading, reprogramming with gratitude and cognitively choosing happiness, are huge. Tai-Chi is also a great way to exercise the mind and body connectivity. Reading this is exercising your neuroplasticity, creating new synapses in your brain!!!
