A lesson about neuroscience and behaviour

First lesson about neuroscience and behaviour :

You can think of your mind as a Velcro for negativity–it is actually easier for you to remember negative experiences rather than the positive ones. However, it doesn’t have to be this way for your brain. Your mind is actually equipped to internalize positive experiences and sustain positive emotions if you keep on building up on this hidden brain skill.

Core objectives :

That means that you can practice on some activities that would eventually allow your brain to stick to positive thoughts that would allow you to dwell on happiness. This way, you can make use of neuroplasticity to sustain positive emotions and combat stress more effectively.

Exercises :

Meditation: is proven to be one of the most effective stress-relievers. At the same time, it also provides beneficial effects to your immune system and your brain’s overall structure. Whenever you meditate, you toughen your brain’s frontal cortex, which decreases over time. By practicing meditation, you reverse the effects of age on this region. That means that you reduce the risk of brain injury that you are likely to acquire as you get older.

Practice positive thinking: Negative emotions do not only promote stress, but also diminish your brain’s potential to better adapt positive habits. Since you are working on your brain’s plasticity, you would want to make sure that you also train yourself to automatically develop an attitude that would allow you to remain positive in the face of challenges. By having a positive attitude towards tasks and difficulties, you would be able to better exercise critical thinking and learn better approaches to solve problems. When you approach things with positive thinking, you enable yourself to see that every challenge allows you to adapt new skills and knowledge.
