Retrain Your Brain

Retrain Your Brain

Scientists have discovered that our thoughts can actually change the structure of our brains.

This phenomenon is called neuroplasticity.

As we go through life experiencing and learning new things, our brains constantly arranges and rearranges the neural pathways that control how we think and behave.

The best way to shape thoughts is through conscious, decisive self talk. Just like how we build habits by repeating an action until it becomes automatic, we can use strong and assertive language to create lasting change in our lives over time.

You are affecting your brains very biology.
