Do you know that neuroscience is now informing us that we have the possibility of changing how our brain functions throughout our lives? It is called Neuroplasticity.
While we are born with a set of genes, they are actually just a a blueprint. It is our life experiences which shape which genes get turned on and off.
What do we need to do to turn on neuroplasticity so we can make lasting change more possible? An inspiring resource for learning more is SOFT-WIRED, a book by Michael Merzenich, a renowned neuroscientist. It is written for lay people, to make neuroscience accessible to us all.
I have distilled Merzenich’s explanation to the following key ideas. Pausibility Body-based Coaching Sessions and the Mastery Program incorporate these vital processes.
What is essential is that we engage our minds in ways that alert the brain to pay attention and build positive long term memories.
In what ways are you incorporating these qualities in your day?
