The human brain is the most complex organ in the human body and probably the most complex creation present on this universe. It is evident that, the world’s greatest man made wonders are a result of the human brain making it the most amazing feature in a human being. The human brain with its complexity acts like a storage device which holds safely a person’s most cherished memories. A person’s personality is by far influenced by the brain as well as generation of human consciousness which gives a person passion, motion and emotion. A command center for the central nervous system, the brain serves human beings with ample physical and cognitive abilities. This are just a few vital roles that the human brain performs but the most amazing thing about the human brain are the many facts that are less known by many people with a fully functional brain.
Tell your brain it is excited not anxious – it sounds simple but repeatedly telling the brain that it is excited changes how it will perform. Cortisol is produced whether you’re feeling stressed or pumped-up. But how the mind reacts alters whether the hormone is beneficial or detrimental. Trying to persuade the brain that it is calm will never work.
Deep breaths – breathing in slowly for five seconds then out for six actually changes the chemistry in the brain. It’s like taking a natural anti-anxiety drug
Power posture – adopting a superhero pose also tricks the brain into feeling more confident. Pumping the chest out and standing up tall triggers the ‘fight’ rather than ‘flight’ emotion, boosting capability.
Squeeze your right hand – squeezing you hand shut for 45 seconds, opening it for 15 then closing again for 45 seconds switches on the left side of the brain to put you in a ‘challenge’ frame of mind, lessoning anxiety, and improving performance.
