Brain Power - Destroying Negative Thoughts

By
Real Estate Agent with Value Added Service, 602-620-2699 SA5376460000

Yesterday, I happened upon a YouTube video of a brain surgeon talking about different aspects of the brain, including cancer of the brain.  The title of the post was what intrigued me,   "Brain Surgeon Reveals How to Heal Trauma & Destroy Negative Thoughts"  with Dr. Rahul Jandial.

 

I've always been fascinated about anything to do with the brain.   So when the title appeared, I jumped on it.  

 

Dr. Jandial talked about "mind health."   Putting habits and tools in place at a young age as to physical health, eating well, and focusing and building on your strengths will leave you with good mind health.  For me that means a feeling of wellness.  Keeping your mind healthy includes a healthy diet.  All of the nutrients from food nourish your body AND  your brain. 

 

One of his comments that I found fascinating is "Heart health is good for brain health."   Everything is connected so if your heart is healthy and blood is flowing, everything is open and flowing to the brain.  Makes sense.  But wouldn't it also be true that all other body organs are healthy, too.  

 

Some of the quotes that I found interesting,

  • "The brain is an energy hog." 
  • "You're born with more neurons then when you're older."   
  • "The human brain in kids goes through a pruning process." 
  • "Diversity of experiences is good for you as it lets kids have the wider array of neurons."   

 

A well rounded physical exposure for kids to physical activity is good for them in so many ways.   As a former coach, I definitely subscribe to this theory.  Movement and that psychology can't be stressed enough for physical and mental well-being.  

 

When a child goes through the process of learning a sport, gaining knowledge, and becoming effective at that sport, they achieve a level of satisfaction.  That child knows they can effectively play in that sport.  That's an increase in endorphins, serotonin and all of the feel good chemicals in a brain!

 

Exercise forces your body to work and be more efficient.  No matter what kind of exercise you do, it should leave you feeling refreshed, rejuvenated. 

 

On a positive note, the one amazing thing about exercise is that "strut" you get after working out and starting the day.  There's nothing like it, unless of course you sell a big beautiful home! 

 

The final interview questions at the end of this interview were very insightful.  Drl Jandial was asked, "what are 3 lessons you'd leave behind after you're gone?"  His answers:

 

  • "Life is short, art is forever."
  • "The meaning of life is that it ends. "
  • "If you're fortunate to find true love, take care of it."
  •  

Such a great interview to invoke thoughts of our own mortality and to leave behind meaningful experiences between the "dash!

 

Dr Jandial has a new book out, "Life on a Knife's Edge."

Hi Jan- very interesting information!  I totally believe in the "use it or lose it" saying which is why I'm still doing my best to post every day. And, I believe that continuing to get out and walk every day even during the 2020 stay-at-home days kept both my husband and myself healthy.

Jan I've told you the story about Dr "Feelgood", I'm sure!  He just couldn't understand why I was in such a great mood......he finally got it.  Positive thoughts make all the difference for all of us. Have a great weekend!

For me, one avenue to positive thinking is gratitude. We have SO much to be grateful for, and yet far too many people focus only on what's wrong/ what want and they don't have / what they can't do.

Good morning Jan - there are plenty of take aways here.  The way to nurture those brain neurons is so important to me.  I work with my wife to keep her stimulated because her condition, PSP, has to do with that.

Grant Schneider , I'm so sorry about your wife's condition.  I had to look that one up.  That is very sad.  I'm sure you can teach a thing or two on this topic. 

Kathy Booth, Setting the Stage it sure is!  I love to get a good walk or hike going. The rewards are many!  Thank you for commenting!

Yes the brain is beyond fascinating. I read years ago that the chess match between Fischer and I believe a Russian created immense energy. Both individuals lost weight each day because the brain was consuming so much energy. Thinking is hard and why the brain which is about 2% of our body weight consumers 20% of all calories. Thank you for the reminder.
