5 questions to ask yourself about your brain
Question everything, including our Brain
Since I have a very curious mind I felt confident to share these 5 questions to ask yourself about your brain. This is a bit of a Spring 2022 campaign for us to launch some practical exercises on mental health awareness and re-introduce the Socratic approach. These five free and simple questions can be asked anywhere, anytime. Self regulation always starts with awareness of how we think, feel and behave. Take a journey deeper into self reflection by starting with what our beautiful brains are and then the below portals as your companions.
Did you know are brains are...
Did you know our magnificent 1.4 kg (3 lbs.) BRAINs are responsible for keeping our bodies and mind running throughout the day. On average, our human brain hosts around 100 billion neurons and each neuron could be connected to up to 10,000 other neurons. Electronic signals pass through these neural networks and create over 1,000 trillion synapses. Every second of the day your BRAIN manages & processes internal communications as well as all your external behaviors and actions. We’re always in that similar cycle of: Discover, Think, Recall, Decide and so forth.
Stay aware of the Brain that is always changing
It is also super important to keep our awareness open while self reflecting on these self regulation questions. Be mindful and observe or discover our thoughts with curiosity – No judgment needed, please! We ain’t got no time for that in Mindfulness. During personal reflection or inquisition, try to create space between you and your thoughts and emotions so that you may observe them with more ease. Some answers may trigger your emotional responses. If so, try your best to not react but rather continue to observe and record your reactions. Everything is feedback and feedback helps us to better navigate.

During the past 2 years, we were all self-isolating, staying home and basically avoiding all unnecessary contact with others, including ourselves. Did you find yourself feeling overwhelmed and mentally exhausted?
…because everything just slowed down and you went into deeper thoughts and couldn’t process them as before?
All of us are trying to figure out what’s true and what to ignore. To tell you the TRUTH: It’s exhausting. But at the same time, most of us are doing more because we are sitting in front of our computers and just keep taking in new information. Like I always say, it’s all about BALANCE.
In an era where ZOOM, TEAMS, SOCIAL MEDIA have become a big part of our lives, we’re all kind of required to do several things at once and forget to bring our attention to the present moment and bring stability to your exhaustion dealing with work and emotion.
So, what does that mean? OVERLOAD Your organizational and analytical processes cannot function properly. You will feel uncomfortable, irritable and very sensitive to your surroundings.
There’s too much going on and you can handle everything like you want to? Your brain is perfect, you don’t need a new one. The only thing you truly need is how to take care of it, polish it and be mindful.
