How Our Social Circle Assist to Create a Healthy Brain

You lose your job. A loved one’s death occurs. You get an illness. Any one of  these life situations can be chaotic and brain-bending. What do you do? If you are part of any social network, if you have some friends, if you have some family members – you’re probably going to be at an advantage over those who have meager social or familial circles. Consider these life-changing situations and strategies to cope with them. Extensive psycho-social studies have proven that a suddenly “disenfranchised” person – made so by a move, loss of a job, the death of a loved one, or the onset of illness – can re-determine their self-worth and their usefulness, their “lovability”, in a pretty cruel world, with the help of family and friends. Moving City/Country Moving is a wrench in anybody’s life, no matter how well planned. New...

Does Coffee Really Wake You Up?

You probably know the feeling, your alarm goes off and the first order of business is getting that cup of coffee or tea into your system. For over 1,000 years now, millions of people have been dependent on their caffeine fix in the morning and often all throughout the day, in order to remain functional and stay alert. But recent studies have shown that caffeine may not actually do anything to wake you up or keep you alert, and the sense of feeling more awake may simply be your body responding to getting its fix and reversing the withdrawal symptoms.

The reason for this is simply that your body...

How To Improve Neural Intergration

We tend to think of the brain encased in our skulls as our only brain but did you know that your body has a least two locations that contain a collection of neural cells just like the brain in the skull?  The heart and the gut are the locations of two other brains we have.  Neural integration is the way these brains connect and communicate.  And yet, so many of us go through our days and our lives unaware of this connection and how much less energy it takes to use three brain instead of one. Mindfulness, Resilience and Self-Regulation are key strategies in connecting our three brains.   Using only one third of our intelligence is like playing baseball with only three people on the field; there’s no way to compete.  So how do we self-regulate to gain access to our full suite of intelligence?The most recent research on mindfulness and...
