Preview of Neuroplasticity: How To Rewire Your Brain
This is a free preview (30 minutes) of the Neuroplasticity: How To Rewire Your Brain course. The description of the full course (138 minutes) is provided below.
Neuroplasticity is the brain's ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life.
Not that long ago, scientists believed the brain could only create new connections during childhood and once we reached adulthood, we would basically be stuck with whatever got wired up there. You know, the good old ‘you can’t learn an old dog new tricks’.
Well, turns out you can. And it’s all about Neuroplasticity
Our brain continues to create new neurons throughout our life and the ability to reorganize our wiring is called neuroplasticity. And this has tremendous consequences. It means that, whoever we are, whatever we’ve become, it is never too late to change. We can learn new skills, we can change old habits and create new ones. We can learn, we can grow, we can improve our lives.
Still, even though we all have this capacity, most of us stay stuck in a seamless dead-end street. Habits are hard to brake. Change requires too much effort. It’s too painful. And we end up settling for not even second best, but rather some average ranking down there. Our life as it could be remains a distant dream, because we gave up.
So with this course, I want to change that. I want to harness the power of neuroplasticity and give people the opportunity to take life back into their own hands. Now don't expect long and boring theories, or technicalities about neurons and dendrites and glial cells, and so on. No, this course has a hands on approach. It's about how you can take action to use this Neuroplasticity to your advantage. How to concretely take action in your own life. More than anything else, this course is about empowerment. About how to reconnect with your dream life and start making that change.
This little gem will bring you cutting edge brain research, from enriched environments to implanting memories, over the anatomy of habits. It's packed with concrete tools, so you can apply this immediately in your own life:
- Over 30 exercises to stimulate brain activity,
- A detailed blueprint to form new habits or change existing ones
- An extensive case study on how to overcome procrastination
- A step by step approach to neutralize painful memories
