Neuroplasticity: The Full Story

Sep 09, 2020

Neuroplasticity. A concept we’ve all heard about. It’s a key driver of growth mindset, the creation of new habits, the reason why gratitude practices are so powerful, and the underlying factor that allows us to reinvent ourselves. 

How amazing is that?! 

But, there’s a darker side to neuroplasticity that we don’t typically hear about. A side that can dilute or even thwart some of the hard work you’re doing to develop yourself into the person you want to be. 

This is what we’re covering this week. 

Specifically, we dive into: 

  • The ways in which neuroplasticity operates in our minds 
  • The brain science behind neuroplasticity and what causes “rewirings” to occur 
  • The little-known “dark side” of neuroplasticity that isn’t helpful to us  
  • Why we’re asking you to stop watching the news! 
  • Ways in which neuroplasticity might be operating in our daily lives and counteracting the hard work we’re doing to better ourselves 

Finally, we end with concrete ways you can begin to use neuroplasticity to your favor. To make your mind into your most valuable asset, rather than your biggest barrier.
