Neuroplasticity

This shows us that WE have the power to change and become who we want to be! A must see. ❤

Toni Jackson

This is a very simplified, easy to understand explanation of the theory of neuroplasticity.  The basic idea is that our brains continue to change and grow as we do; and that through repeatedly focusing on a new thought or behaviour, we can change the neuro pathways in our brains.

She has worked over the past 20 years in the areas of women and adolescent mental health and wellbeing, counselling adults, adolescents, children and families from many different backgrounds.

  1. I read a book called “The Plastic Brain”. It was recommended by a friend but I had dreaded reading it. Once I started to read it, I couldn’t put it down. Neuroplasticity is truly an intriguing science.

    • I would like to read that book. I always thought that we could change our habits and belief systems all by ourselves. It makes total sense to me. I like the phrase about recreating yourself. Many people think that when they reach a certain age they can’t change. In reality, we change ourselves all the time. Retrain your brain. What a great idea! 😀
