YOU and how to keep Brain/Mind wired to be the BEST
The following is from bigthink.com
Until the 1980s, the scientific consensus was that the nervous
system was fixed and incapable of regeneration. The growth of
neurons was considered most active during prenatal
development. As we age, neurons atrophy, the thinking went. No
scientists believe new neurons are continually born throughout
Several breakthrough studies suggest that we may have more
control over how our brains functions and develop throughout
adulthood-our thoughts, behaviors, and emotions than previously
Why does this matter? Because by learning how to control our
mentality, we may be able to deliberately reshape our neural
pathways and rew=wire our brains to make ourselves more
successful a fulfilled. In other words, shape your brain and you
can shape your life.
In w007, Harvard Medical School conducted a study with
volunteers in a lab who were asked to learn and practice a five-
finger piano exercise. A neuroscientist instructed half of the
volunteers to play as fluidly as they could, trying to keep to the
metronome’s 60 beats per minute, two hours a day for five days.
The other half were instructed to merely think about practicing the
piano, holding their hands still while playing the music in them
heads. At the end of the five days, both groups underwent a
transcranial-magnetic-stimulation test, which enabled scientists to
infer the function of neurons.
The test results showed that in both groups, the stretch of motor
cortex devoted to these finger movements took over surrounding
areas. The finding was in line with a growing number of
discoveries showing that greater use of a particular muscle
causes the brain to devote more cortical growth to it. Practice
rewires the brain. More startling, however, was that the same
region of the brain had expanded in the volunteers who merely
thought about playing in a disciplined way.
Here are 5 ways to rewire your brain for meaningful life changes:
Identify the beliefs that support your intention
Embrace your positive emotions
Take actions that support your intention
Repeat, repeat, and keep repeating

How to release emotional toxicity
While the ancient Vedic sages were not able to study the brain at
the cellular level, they knew that meditation is a powerful practice
for regaining inner calm and aquarium. Ayurveda teaches that
just as physical toxins, can build up in our cells, we can also
accumulate mental toxicity in the form of unresolved anger, fear,
doubt, craving, compulsiveness, and emotional upset.
Let it go – let God take it – send it all out to the universe.
You cannot rewire YOUR brain for success if you are holding onto
stress, and all the negatives.
