Who wants to buy a new Brain?
Sometimes it is all just a little too much and my brain feels overwhelmed, overused and screaming for a reboot or shutdown. Do you get this as well? I will have literally just had a coffee and still, a few bodily motions short of a faint, I would fall with gravity to the bed, or chair, or yoga mat and just breathe myself to sleep. Thankfully, my brain comes back online with a routine sub program somewhere but I will admit that I have been late once or twice becasue of overmeditating. Lol.
Wouldn’t you love to be able to just go on amazon prime and get a new replacement brain delivered with one-day shipping when that stuff happens? Lol. Well, I actually love my brain so I’m not on the Bezos train for that item. Nor will I make plans to pull a Walt Disney and put my brain on ice or even consider the sci-fi concept of a virtual UPLOAD like on the show from Amazon Prime. My values align more with recycling then shopaholicism. So eventhough i may not want to buy a new brain for myself, I absolutely do want to grow myself a new brain.
We can GROW new Brains!
Back to buying new brains. No, we cannot buy a new brain and hopefully you wouldn’t want to either. We only have one body, with one brain, in this lifetime to chauffeur our soul around so please, be kind to your mind. Treat is like a prized possession that you would keep close to your heart. Like something that has the potential to fill you with such intense joy or peace. Or like a magical amulet, imbued with glorious power, waiting to be harnessed. Yes, these are all suitable descriptions to better understand our brain in reference.
The good news is we can GROW new brains… or at least new neurons within our brain. And neurons are what make the magic happen behind all the smoke and mirrors. Through the scientific process of neuroplasticity, we beautiful human beings can affect change in our bodies at a molecular level. Within reason, of course, but how awesome is it to know that we have gathered enough empirical evidence to state that there are, indeed, things we can aim for that will help us target better brains.
What is neuroplasticity?
Neuroplasticity can be understood as simply the brain’s ability to change, both in structure and function, all throughout its existence. I say “it’s” because technically our brain is not our body and it could, in my view, continue to exhibit neuroplastic responses to external stimuli even after the consciousness has gone. And if you think I am lying, well, have a google on the recent reanimating of dead pig brains. Lol. Sci-fi eventually comes to pass. Honestly, I couldn’t even make this up if I tried. But I digress, back to what we can do in practical terms to grow us a healthier brain through the process of neuroplasticity:
Self regulation practices to grow a new brain:
- Micro Meditations
- Outside in Nature
- Brain Training
Supplements to use to grow a new brain:

- Vitamin D
Practical snacks I make for myself to grow a new brain:
Lastly, here are a few practical snacks I make for myself to keep my brain from running on empty:

Enough about me. What do you think of me and my perspectives? Lol.😉Please, let me know your feedback or questions by using the comments on our social media channel of your choice.
Much love, light and self regulation.
