In the last decade or so, neuroscientists have discovered that the human brain is a much more flexible organ than previously believed. It was previously thought that our brains, after childhood, remained fixed and set. However, it has now been demonstrated through in-depth research using MRI scans that the brain can be “rewired” right into adulthood. Our neural pathways can, through repeated thoughts, feelings and behaviours, literally be rewired! This is the concept of neuroplasticity and is incredibly positive news for people who suffer from anxiety or depression and for those of us who wish to change unhealthy habits. It is empowering to know that we really do have the ability, through the power of our minds, to take control and reach our full potential.
