Practicing good habits for the health of neurons

 Our brain is made up of hundreds of billions of neurons. And these neurons are connected to each other and exchange information, so that we can continue our normal activities.

 The ‘neuronal connections’ that we have in our brain are constantly changing, enlarging and reorganizing. 

This process is called neuroplasticity. A person's neuroplasticity occurs by establishing new connections of neurons in the brain by adapting to the various problems and environmental conditions that arise in individual life.

Earlier neuroscientists thought that this neuroplasticity develops only in childhood. But studies have shown that many of these occur in adulthood. 

If someone is under stress for a long time, this neuroplasticity is disrupted. It affects not only our thoughts and memories, but can also cause a variety of mental problems, such as depression, anxiety, mood disorders, etc.

In order to maintain neuroplasticity, we need to be involved in some work. It is important to develop some habits:

Physical exercise:

 Exercise 10 to 15 minutes every day. Oxygen supply to the brain will increase and you will get a lot of energy physically and mentally. This will create a neuron-friendly environment.

Acquiring new skills:

 The role of acquiring new skills in maintaining neuroplasticity is immense. Such as learning different languages, swimming, drawing, cycling, driving, dancing, singing, etc.

Quality sleep:

 Adults need seven to eight hours of sleep. Quality sleep plays a very effective role in neuroplasticity.

Stress Management: 

Neuroplasticity is hampered by prolonged stress. So keep the brain active and make life beautiful through proper management of stress. There are many ways to manage stress. One of these is to give yourself time. Give yourself at least five minutes each day. Do the work that matches your peace of mind at that time.

Reading and writing books: 

Read at least some time every day. Through reading and writing books, you can reconnect neurons in the brain. 

Avoiding Negative Thoughts: 

Most of the time we nurture negative thoughts and ideas. And it becomes a barrier to neuroplasticity. So instead of focusing on the negative aspects of any unforeseen event, think about what you learned from it. If you have an achievement there, no matter how small, reward yourself for it. This will increase your confidence and self-esteem.
