Complexity

You’ve got more than 100 billion neurons inside your brain transmitting information at the speed of a bullet train. That’s almost equal to the total number of stars in our galaxy!

For all the plans you make, the things you do, and the decisions you take, there are neurons inside your brain sending electrical signals to each other round the clock. Without diving deep into the complexity of this grey matter, let us look at those amazing things about your brain that you should be aware of.

A Multitasking Myth

A Multitasking Myth

If you think you are great at multitasking, I would say think again. Only 2% of human beings can multitask efficiently. This is because the human brain cannot process information from two different sources at the same time.

You must be thinking that I’m kidding because you multitask every now and then. You can listen to music while studying or you can easily drive while talking over the phone. A chef is capable of cooking two, three, or maybe four dishes at a time, isn’t it?

Basically, the tasks that you regularly perform become a part of your subconscious mind. Your subconscious mind stores your skills, experiences, and memories so that you won’t stress your brain every time you perform a regular task. This makes it even easier and faster to switch between the two tasks. Moreover, the transition is so dynamic that you would feel like you’re multitasking. But in reality, you’re not.

Placebo Sleep

Placebo Sleep

The placebo effect is one of the most powerful effects in psychology. Moreover, it is widely accepted by medical sciences around the world. A placebo is something that seems to be a real treatment, but it isn’t. It is effective only because of the patient’s belief in the treatment.

Similarly, you can easily fool your brain into believing that you’ve had enough sleep, even when you haven’t. A research showed that just by thinking that you’ve got a good sleep you can make your brain work more efficiently and in a much better way.

Attraction Towards Negativity

Attraction Towards Negativity

Your brain is inclined towards negative thoughts. Yes, you’re hardwired to focus on negativity and the reason behind it lies far back in history before civilization.

In ancient times, paying attention to dangerous, negative, and bad things in the world was literally a matter of life and death. Those who were more attentive to dangerous and negative things were more likely to survive. Though you don’t need to be that attentive anymore, your brain still pays more attention to something that may harm you in the future.

Rewiring Your Brain

Rewiring Your Brain

You can make long-lasting beneficial changes to the physical or neurological functioning of the brain. If you like to learn something new or to give up an old bad habit, you can do that in just 3 to 4 weeks. You only have to take one step forward towards your goal every day.

Once you visualize what you want and identify the beliefs that support your intention, you just need to take actions that’ll rewire your brain as per your preferences. However, the final result will depend on your consistency and the intensity of performing those actions.

Laugh!

Laugh!

Laughter works in a way similar to antidepressants. A research showed that laughing literally improves your mental health as it releases the feel-good hormones, namely dopamine and serotonin in your brain.

Laughing also helps in decreasing pain while improving the resiliency of your body by releasing endorphins in your brain. So, laugh and spread happiness because you never know who might be needing it.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
