Let’s talk about the brain for a bit.
“The good news is that brain plasticity isn’t just a theory – it’s proven science. Learning new and more effective ways to cope with stress will actually lay new neural pathways that can prevent further damage and even reclaim a life.
“Relatively recent practices like dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) are particularly successful with emotion regulation. Similarly, cognitive reframing and distraction techniques help manage stress, as does thought-stopping (in its simplest form, snap a rubber band on your wrist to divert yourself from ruminations or cravings. It works, even if you do get a bit bruised in the process).”
-Terri Cheney, Modern Madness
Brains are wild. And what’s even wilder is how little we know about it.
“The brain is a muscle that can move the world.”
Happy spring yall! <3
