The Super Resilience of the Brain

Published July 11, 2013 by Stuff My Brain Thinks

Thus far in The Super Brain I have learned just how resilient the brain truly is. Many years ago it was thought that the brain was hard-wired and fragile. Today we know that this is not true. The brain can actually repair itself. We have all heard of stories of coma patients waking up and making a full recovering and of stroke patients who have lost the memory to do seemingly simple things such as talking and eating being able to relearn these activities and regain their mobility.

Our brains can do amazing things and like any other part of the body it needs proper nutrition and stimulation to function properly. Smoking and drinking are the absolute worst things a person can do to the brain.  Basically, if we would like to get the most out of our brains we need to exercise it. We need to take the time to learn each and every day. Often as people age they have the mind-set that they are getting older and therefor will lose their memory. This could not be farther from the truth. Of course if you believe you will lose your memory, you probably will. All of our thoughts create emotions and our emotions create memory. If you believe that you are losing your memory and there are strong emotions attached to that thought you could ultimately be manifesting your fear.

There is a baseline brain and a higher super brain.  The difference between the two are night and day.  In the baseline brain thoughts are restricted.  It is here that our brains “are using us” instead of “us using our brains”.  The super brain, on the other hand is where all things are possible and where life is viewed as a gift.  It is here that we would be using our brains to get the most out of life.

To keep the mind sharp all throughout life simply finding ways to get excited about learning will make all the difference. You are never to old to learn. We are able to tap into our inner child’s curiosity at any time. There is a vast array of knowledge out there, and as long as we absorb a little each day we will keep our brain strong even into our late eighties or nineties depending on the person.

So far this is a very interesting read.  It is in-depth but very easy to understand.  I am excited to continue reading.  🙂
