One of the most exciting developments in brain science is the understanding that we have the capacity to change our brains, no matter how old we are.
Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to reorganize itself by making new neural connections. Sometimes that happens out of necessity, like when there is an injury or impairment and the brain compensates. But it can happen by thought alone, as shown by recent studies on meditation that indicate boosts in attention, mood, and even multi-tasking productivity.
In other words, we can change our brains simply by what we choose to think about and practice.
I’m fascinated by what’s possible by working with our thoughts. Can we become happier, more successful in our endeavors, more in tune with our intuition? The answer is yes, and I believe it doesn’t take more than a few minutes a day. In my blog, I’ll share studies that further our understanding of what the mind can do, and information I think may be helpful about meditation, neuroplasticity and intuition.
