Theresa’s TNT (Tip ‘N Tool): Change Your Thinking, Change Your Brain   Leave a comment

Dear Friends,

Did you know you could increase your sense of happiness by focusing on experiences, in the past or present, that brought or bring you pleasure?

Experts estimate that we have between 60,000 and 80,000 thoughts per day, and most of them are repetitive! You’ve likely heard the phrase “what you focus on grows.” Research now tells us the science behind it is accurate.

Neurons that fire together wire together. In layman’s terms (which I’m still learning!) means that our repetitive thoughts strengthen the neural pathways in our brains, and the beliefs and behaviors that accompany them. The good news is, as we change our thinking, we have the ability to change the hardwiring in our brains.

For instance, science has shown that focusing on positive experiences for as little as 10-20 seconds increases our happiness and improves our health and well-being; things we may have known instinctively, and which researchers are now documenting.

This week, dedicate a few minutes throughout the day to reflect on pleasurable experiences – past or present – and soak in the good feelings for 10 to 20 seconds. Then take a moment to notice any changes to your energy or mood.

As you continue to practice, noticing positive moments will become natural, and help you to create a happier, healthier, more fulfilling life!

Give it a try! It might brighten your day!

As always, I would love to hear from you. Drop a note to let me know it goes!

With love,

Theresa
