The human brain is incredible.
It’s the most complex object in the known universe with over 100 billion neurons joined together and 100 trillion connections between them.
Used correctly, it can help you achieve your wildest dreams.
Today, we’re going to go over 10 incredible facts about how the brain works.
Prepared to be amazed.
1) For our brain, there’s no difference between reality and imagination
Our brains react to every thought and can’t tell fact from fantasy. That’s why people who see the world through rose-colored glasses tend to be happier.
2) Mental work doesn’t tire the brain
The feeling of mental fatigue is more emotional than it is physical. The actual blood flow to the brain remains unchanged during active work.
3) The brain works automatically
The brain often recycles thoughts from the past, which is why it’s so hard for chronic pessimists to change their attitude. They basically have to “clean” their brains by making themselves react to positive things more often.
4) We see what we’re thinking about
Ever notice how when you learn a new word, you suddenly start to see it everywhere? Or maybe you hear about a new band and suddenly you start hearing their music wherever you go. This is known in psychology as the Baader-Meinhof phenomenon.
5) Our brain needs training, just like our muscles
The brain is a muscle, and like every other muscle, it needs to be exercised and treated right. Challenge your brain by learning new things, traveling to new places, and eating a healthy diet.
