5 Secrets You Did Not Know About Your Brain – Explained


You can't control your thoughts.

The brain our thoughts, a flurry of ideas, nagging positive thoughts, negative tingles and the occasional hope is all you have to keep going.

This blog post will explore what makes us happy and unhappy with this series of questions: What do we think about? Do we dwell on negativity or positivity? Is there a way to be more positive in life?

How does being more positive affect the world around us?

Do you often find yourself dwelling on negative things that have happened in your past or current experiences?

Are these feelings sometimes so powerful they make it difficult for you to see the good side of life as well as those around you who love and care for you dearly?

Look at the five major points, in my humble opinion of course.

Your brain sees absolutely no difference between reality and imagination.

The brain reacts equally to everything you think about.

At this point, there is no difference between objective reality and your fantasies. This is why the so-called placebo effect is possible.

If your brain thinks you are taking a pharmaceutical (not a sugar pill), it reacts accordingly. I drank a placebo, thinking it was aspirin, and my brain will give my body the command to lower my body temperature.

The nocebo effect works the same way but in the opposite direction. If a hypochondriac is watching the evening news and hears about the outbreak of a new disease, he may even start to feel the symptoms physically.

The good news is that if you look at the world with rose-coloured glasses, you probably feel happier because of abnormally high levels of serotonin (the joy hormone) in your blood.

Any constructive thought or fear of a bright future can improve your physical wellbeing in the here and now.

You see what you think about most

Whatever you think about becomes the basis of your life experience.

Let's say that if you buy a new car, you're more likely to notice cars of that brand around town. It's all about how you think about your car more often than before.

Why should you know? The thing is, you can get out of any stressful situation by reprogramming your thinking.

Conversely, if you try to analyse the political situation presented by different media in different ways, you will only believe those that reflect your point of view.

There is one more thing. Have you ever noticed that people quickly group themselves by interests?

Positive people are more likely to be friends with the same positive people. And hypochondriacs are with hypochondriacs. It's not a coincidence

If you want to change something in your life, start by changing your thinking patterns.

Most of the time, your brain is running on autopilot

On average, the human brain generates 60,000 daily thoughts.

But more than 40,000 of them will be the same thoughts you were racing through your head yesterday.

That's why it's so easy to slip into a corkscrew of negative perceptions about life. And that's why we need to change our usual environment to an unfamiliar one to ′′clean ′′ our brains.

Negative thoughts themselves create stress and anxiety, even if there is no real reason. And they really damage the immunity that is forced to respond to it.

Train your brain. Let it register positive thoughts more often. The more you try, the quicker and easier it will be to succeed. To consciously cope with life is to try to take control of all those unconscious processes.

The ultimate goal of the practice is to make sure that most of the ′′default ′′ thoughts are positive.

Periodic disconnection is key

You can literally drown in thousands of negative thoughts stuck in your head all day long.

That's why you need to ′′disconnect′: it will give your immune system a respite, make you healthier and happier.

The easiest way to ′′turn off ′′ your brain for a few minutes is meditation. It allows you to turn your mind into a comfortable and effective tool.

And a little more. I'm about to go on holiday. Choose an active holiday: skiing, diving, hiking. The easier it is for you to focus on an emotional process, the more effective it is to clear your head.

You can change your brain. Literally. Physically!

When you focus on mental activity, your brain at that moment is actively generating new neural connections.

Biologists call this process neuroplasticity.

Here's how it works. If you think you can't lose weight, you will only gain strength in that thought over time.

But if you replace this subconscious belief with the idea: “I'm in great physical shape,” your brain will create new neural connections every time.

You will start to notice new opportunities more often, which will allow you to transform this subconscious system into a new reality.

You can subordinate your consciousness and change. You can achieve anything you desire.

The most important thing is to believe it. After all, every physical process begins with the thoughts that arise in your head.
