Train your brain for happiness

How can you train your brain to be healthy and happy?

Do you realize that your brain is the only thing that can keep you healthy and happy?

Is that accurate?

Unquestionably.

Believe it wholeheartedly and watch as miracles begin to appear in your life.

The only catch is that you must schedule a time to train your brain every day.

Isn’t it true that saying something is simpler than doing it?

It’s a possibility, but it’s also a possibility.

The question is how long you’ll take to put it into action in your life.

In today’s information overload time, we are bombarded with so much information that some people become confused.

Result?

Stressed.

Burnout comes after anxiety and grief.

Mood swings are also a factor.

The end effect is unhappiness.

Whatever the case may be, scientists are attempting to show that internal reform is the only way to obtain health and happiness.

Everything else could just be a trick of the eye.

What does this mean in practice?

Your brain is the only thing that will keep you healthy and happy.

Richard Davidson, a neuroscientist at the University of Wisconsin, and Jon Kabat-Zinn, a psychologist at the University of Massachusetts, have completed some exciting research that could benefit you and me in our daily lives.

They looked at 41 people who worked in a biotechnology company in Wisconsin and were worried  but otherwise healthy.

A total of 25 people were taught meditation.

In this case, mindfulness meditation is beneficial.

The group gathered once a week for a two and half to three-hour meditation session.

After six weeks, they all went on a seven-hour meditation retreat.

In addition, each participant was told to use a guided meditation tape to meditate for one hour  each day.

The remaining 16 were used as an impressive group and did not get any meditation instruction until the study was completed.

At the end of the eight-week programme, in November, they gave each of the trainees a flu shot.

What’s more, you’ll be surprised to learn that

“Members in the meditation group saw a significant increase in antibody titers,” which means they are  less likely to catch the flu.

As a result, set aside time each day to improve your mental abilities.

It’s efficient.

I) Make full use of your five senses.

When you learn anything new, the more senses you use, the more of your brain is involved in  memory retention.

In one experiment, adults were given a series of emotionally neutral images, each in the midst of a fragrance.

They were not questioned about what they had seen.

They were then shown a series of photographs that were devoid of odours and asked to identify  which ones they had viewed previously.

They had excellent recall for all odour-paired images, especially those associated with pleasant odours.

The piriform cortex, the brain’s major odour-processing region, became engaged when they observed things originally associated with odours, even though the odours were no longer present and the subjects had not attempted.

II) Prioritize the use of your brain.

If you don’t have to worry about remembering where you left your keys or when your granddaughter’s birthday party is, you’ll be able to focus on learning and remembering new and important things.

Use smartphone reminders, calendars and planners, maps, grocery lists, file folders, and address books to keep everyday information accessible.

Set aside a spot for your glasses, wallet, keys, and other regularly used items.

III) Believe in yourself.

Myths about aging may play a role in one’s mental health.

Negative stereotypes about aging and memory make middle-aged and older students perform worse on memory tasks, but positive messages about memory maintenance beyond maturity help them do better.

People who believe they have no control over their memory function — perhaps because they make too many jokes about “senior moments” — are less likely to think about keeping or enhancing their memory skills, and so are more likely to suffer from cognitive decline.

If you believe you’ll progress and put that thought into practice, you’ll have a much higher chance of keeping your mind fresh.

IV) Continue to learn.

A higher level of education is connected to greater mental performance in old age.

Increased education, according to experts, may help people keep their memory by instilling the  necessary skills.

It’s thought that mental activity activates processes that help sustain individual brain cells while also increasing communication between them.

Many people work in fields that require mental stimulation.

Pursuing a hobby, learning a substitute skill, volunteering, and mentoring are all good ways to keep your mind sharp.

V) Say what you’d like to remember once again.

If you want to remember anything you just heard, read, or thought, repeat it loudly or write it  down.

In this way, you’ll be strengthening the memory or relationship.

“So, Rabin, where did you meet Anamika?” could be an example of how to use someone’s name in a conversation: “So, Rabin, where did you meet Anamika?”

VI) Make some room for it.

Repetition works best as a learning tool when it is timed correctly.

It is not suggested that you prepare for a test by repeating topics over and over in a short period of time.

Instead, go through the essentials for longer lengths of time – once an hour, then every few hours, and finally every day.

Memory enhancement is aided by spacing out study sessions.

Spacing out is extremely advantageous when absorbing difficult information, such as the nuances  of a brand new job assignment.

Bottom Line: 

It’s possible that happiness will become a habit.

Because of evolution, the human brain is programmed to pay greater attention to negative ideas  and experiences than positive ones.

Because we have a natural inclination to overlook pleasant thoughts and sensations in our lives, it’s critical to learn how to pay more attention to them.

This is usually a quick self-test to see how much of a positive thinker you are (or aren’t).

But, maybe more crucially, merely asking the question will urge you to think more positively.
