Neuroplasticity and confidence.


I was reading this morning some research on brain neuroplasticity related to confidence from Mount Sanai Hospital School of Medicine. They call confidence ‘life’s enabler’ or the quality that turns thoughts into action. Taking small steps in daily life adds up, they say in other words. Also, viewing failure as new information to be accepted as part of learning, versus sense of failing.

Good posture, too, plays a part in how confident we feel. This is innately known with practices like Tai Chi or yoga; feeling confident physically imports into feeling confident emotionally and mentally.

Neurofeedback podcast interview with Upgraded Ape organization

If you want to hear what NeurOPTMAL neurofeedback does from the developer himself, this is a wonderful interview.  He gives his background and how he got into this field.  He also provides a simple explanation about how NeurOPTIMAL can improve resilience in life.  When your brain sees what is has been doing electrically, it improves itself because this is its design. This is the neuroplasticity.

After 8 years of using MeurOPTIMAL with clients as well as using it myself, I am still learning new things each time I hear Val Brown be interviewed.  He is a great teacher and able to synthesize very complex information into simple ways of grasping how NeurOPTIMAL can do what it does across so many symptoms and presentations.

But when we have to resist stress too often for too long, it can erode our brain’s ability to keep us calm and produces feelings that we neither control nor desire.  Anxiety, depression, poor focus, over working, over eating or consuming, hyperactivity, to name only a few.
