06 Sep Being Well Podcast: How to Change Your Brain
If you’ve been listening to this podcast for a while, you’ve been given a lot of information about how to improve your mental health by learning new skills, releasing old pain, and generally deepening your knowledge and understanding of both yourself and other people. A major focus of the podcast is giving you great tools, and hopefully teaching you how to use them really well.
But the dirty secret of the personal growth industry, and self-help and psychology more broadly, is that most of those tools don’t stick. Whether it’s a New Year’s Resolution quickly abandoned, a new habit that fails to take, or a good piece of advice someone gets from a therapist that falls to the wayside after a few weeks, most change is temporary.
So, what can we do to achieve the ‘holy grail’ of personal growth – lasting change in our hearts, minds, and behaviors? How can we change the brain for good?
That’s the focus of this episode: a full primer on the science of ‘positive neuroplasticity,’ including a lot of practical advice on how we can take control of our brain’s growth over time.
