Many of you know that rewiring the brain changes the body and mind through neural retraining. But what exactly is neuroplasticity and why should it matter to you? I am going to dive deep into the science of neuroplasticity and how it can be a pillar in your healing.
Simply put, neuroplasticity refers to the brain’s ability to adapt and change. We can think of our brains like computers that receive actual hardware ‘updates’ as we experience new learning. Throughout our life our brain has different pathways that form or go dormant and can actually change based on our experiences.
Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to form new neural pathways and connections and to even change how it is wired. Did you know that there are two types of neural plasticity?
- Structural neuroplasticity is the strength of the connection between neurons that has the ability to change.
- Functional neuroplasticity describes permanent changes in the synapse that takes place due to learning and development.
Both types are important in your own development and experiences and empower you to know that your state of wellbeing is not permanent. You have the ability to change your brain and your body through neuroplasticity and brain rewiring.
Brain Retraining can be seen through
1. Having a growth mindset
A growth mindset is a belief that your skills and abilities can be improved upon over time through practice and determination and it is directly linked to brain retraining through neuroplasticity. This growth goes beyond the ages of childhood.
2. Being in enriched environments
Enriched environments support the brain through stimulation, focused attention, and novelty. When you push yourself to be in enriched environments or with those that stimulate you intellectually, you have the opportunity to create new neural pathways and connect new thoughts and ideas together through your new experiences.
3. Cognitive training and healing sessions
When you participate in as little as ten cognitive training or healing sessions you scientifically change the way your brain functions. Science has shown that you can slow age-related decline and stress in the time period of ten sessions.
Some benefits of neuroplasticity include
- recovery from brain injuries
- ability to rewire functions in the brain
- enhance memory ability
- enhance cognitive ability
- healing after trauma
- more effective learning
- and support the nervous system.
