I love those days when my brain can do no wrong. I remember the names of people whom I haven’t seen in decades. I am able to focus on my work and get projects done in record time. My brain is on as if it’s in turbo-charge.
But then there are those other days when the rev turns to idle, and disappointingly sluggish, my brain gets stuck in park, and I’m just not clicking-along.
Some of the experts say that this is more about attention than serious brain lapse. We’re not attending…we’re not focused on the moment. That makes perfect sense in our multi-tasked, driven world.
Too often we look at multi-tasking as an asset. But experts are telling us something else.
As we age, the running joke is about “senior moments” and we shrug-off their lapses. But maybe we shouldn’t give up so easily on our brains…
Our brain cells are growing and changing. Synapses are firing and neural pathways are rewiring. We’re just in the early stages of discovering the potential of neuroscience.
And what’s turning out to be really exciting is that the “brain” activities we do and the experiences we have can impact the thickness of our grey matter.
Each webinar in our New Brain Science teleseminar series, we’ve focused upon the clinical application of neurogenesis and neuroplasticity.
There is no better place to start than knowing what we could do to encourage more brilliant brain days.
Dr. Siegel, MD, Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at UCLA Medical School has an interesting perspective he calls mindsight.
And what is mindsight? Well, Dan can explain it better than I can. And we’ll go into a lot of detail about this and much more in Wednesday’s teleseminar but in the meantime, you can check out this short video we just made for you.
No longer an insult, thick-headedness might very well be the new compliment!
