Long ago, the prevailing thought was that our brains never changed. Whatever number of brain cells we were born with, we would have for life.
If you experienced severe brain injury and damage from drug use, etc., cells would be destroyed, and once brain cells died, there was no way to get more of them.
Not so anymore! Do you know why?
In a nutshell, it's because our brains are actually moldable or shapeable (neuroplastic). Brand new brain cells can be formed (neurogenesis).
Because our MIND impacts the very structure of our brains, this is amazing and hopeful news! It means that we can rewire our brains to think truthful, healthy thoughts, which in turn produce vibrant emotions and feelings, which then influences our actions!
In other words, you don't have to stay stuck in negative, unproductive thinking or any mindset that is overshadowing your day and keeping you stalled out or exhausted.
