Wake up or you might continue to experience each day primed for disease and negativity. Our prefrontal cortex regulates attention and thoughts with vast amounts of neural connections and a system of arousal and neurotransmitters. If we take no action, our default system favors error detection, threat response, excessive stress, and even disease. Science shows that neuroplasticity — focused attention coupled with experience or a perceived sense of control– manipulates these connections and overrides stress and disease. Each time you feel “why me?” ask yourself instead, “what else is posible?”. Then take responsibility by creating a new story. This exercises the prefrontal cortex and sculpts neural connections with the right balance of norepinephrine and dopamine. YOU are in control of YOUR stories.
