5 Daily Neuroplasticity Practices 👇
Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to respond to a changing environment, reorganize pathways, and improve function.
Better neuroplasticity can help with creating fresh habits, learning new skills, releasing unneeded anxiety, and pretty much anything else involving the brain 🧠
There are lots of ways to improve neuroplasticity. Depending on your goals, you can choose practices to help reach them.
1️⃣ Brain Games
If your goals revolve around improving your focus, concentration, reaction time, and memory, you might try blocking off 15 minutes a day to do something like Sudoku, chess, or a brain-training app.
2️⃣ Art & Music
If your goals include improving your mood and processing your emotions, you can retrain your brain through creative expression like drawing, painting, or singing.
If your goals include becoming more mindful and present while improving your mood, meditation reinforces neural pathways related to positive emotions.
4️⃣ Deep Breathing
Whether it’s better concentration, focus, mood, or stress resilience you’re aiming for, deep breathing activates the vagus nerve to tell your nervous system to reset.
Similar to meditation and deep breathing, yoga activates the vagus nerve and sends a message of calm to the nervous system.
Our brains are forever changing. If we make it a habit to do some sort of neuroplasticity training every day (like one of these things ☝️), we program the brain to be resilient, malleable, and strong.
🗝️ The key with all neuroplasticity practices is to do them often.
Do you practice any of these things?
