Tricking Your Brain Into Liking The Things That Are Good For You
The neural pathways in your brain are responsible for determining the things you like and the things you dislike.
You may find yourself fearing things that are good for you and liking things that are not good for you.
This happens because our brains evolved to store experiences, not to delete them. But the pathways built by past experiences can be quite misleading. They can prevent us from the things that hurt us in the past and lead us to things that helped in the past.
If your math teacher made fun of you in class, for instance, you might develop a deep dislike for the subject. Or, you might have developed a taste for chocolate cookies because they remind you of a kind grand parent.
But it is possible to rewire old circuits in your brain. You can enjoy math and resist the cookie.
How Can You Build New Pathways In Your Brain?
Building new circuits in an adult brain is as difficult as slashing your way through a dense rainforest.
Each step requires huge effort. And the new pathway disappears if you don’t use it repetitively.
When creating a new behavior, your neurons have difficulty sending down electricity down a path which has not been activated before. But each time a pathway is activated, it fires more easily than the previous time it was engaged.
Repetition is the solution to develop a neural pathway. Just like a dirt road hardens after years of use, you can also build new pathways over time.
Select new experiences that stimulate happy chemicals in your body. And repeat them until they surge with electricity.
You will soon feel good in ways that are good for you.
