Our brain is so amazing it can help us to make our most cherished dreams come true, and easily achieve what you once thought was the most difficult goal. However, first, we need to understand the principles on how our brain works.
- THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN REALITY AND IMAGINATION IN OUR BRAIN.
Because our brain reacts to every thought, it cannot tell fact from fantasy. This is the reason why our body accepts a placebo as a real pharmaceutical product and people who see the world through rose-colored glasses are happier.
- IT IS NOT TRUE THAT MENTAL WORK TIRES THE BRAIN.
The truth is that brain fatigue is due to our emotions. The composition of blood flowing through the brain during its active work does not change.
- THE BRAIN WORKS AUTOMATICALLY.
Did you know that more than half of your thoughts today, are thoughts from yesterday? This makes it very difficult for pessimists to change their perception of the world because they need to literally “clean” their brain. They need to try and make it react to positive things more often.
- WHAT WE ARE THINKING ABOUT, WE ACTUALLY SEE.
Your thoughts turn into life experiences. If you dream about a trip to London, you will see reminders of the city everywhere. In order to change the world around you, change your thoughts.
- OUR BRAIN IS A MUSCLE THAT NEEDS TRAINING.
The brain is a muscle, that needs to train. These are all useful activities for your brain: learning, fresh air workouts, healthy eating, sound sleep, traveling to new places, new activities, making notes, dancing, and even playing Tetris.
- YOUR BRAIN NEVER RESTS.
Your brain continues to work hard even while sleeping. Its activity during sleep is even higher than during the day.
- SHUTTING YOUR BRAIN DOWN FROM TIME TO TIME IS VITAL.
In order give a break to our immune system and not to drown in thousands of negative thoughts, we need to “shut ourselves down.”
- TO KEEP THE FLEXIBILITY OF OUR NERVOUS SYSTEM, WE NEED TO FORGET.
To “save” new memories, our brain needs to get rid of old ones. To decide what to remember and what to forget, we need to use the information we want to preserve more often.
- YOUR BRAIN IS INSENSITIVE TO PAIN.
Our brain reacts to pain but sometimes does not feel it because of the lack of necessary receptors. This fact, however, does not apply to lots of blood vessels, nerves, and tissues that surround the brain.
- YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR BRAIN.
There are many kinds of activities that will make your brain generate new neural connections. If you think you are not able to do something, this idea will strengthen in your consciousness over time. However, when you phrases like “I’ll succeed,” the brain itself will give you opportunities to realize your goal.
