    Retraining our Plastic Brains

    Have you ever wondered if it's possible to teach an old brain new tricks? Well, it turns out that our brains have an amazing capacity to reorganize themselves by forming new neural connections. That's right – our brains are capable of change, no matter our age or circumstances.

    To illustrate this concept, imagine you're a taxi driver in London. To pass the grueling "Knowledge" exam, you have to memorize the city's complex street map, including over 25,000 streets and 20,000 landmarks. Sounds daunting, right?

    Well, here's the amazing part: as you study and practice, your brain begins to form new neural connections and pathways, making it easier to remember the information. In fact, studies have shown that the hippocampus, the part of the brain responsible for spatial memory, is significantly larger in London taxi drivers than in the general population.

    So, what does this mean for you? It means that you can apply the same principles of neuroplasticity to change your own habits and behaviors. Whether you want to eat healthier, exercise more, or reduce stress levels, you can start by breaking down your goals into small, achievable steps.

    For example, if you want to start eating healthier, you can start by incorporating more fruits and vegetables into your diet or swapping out soda for water. These small changes may seem insignificant, but they can lead to bigger changes over time as your brain adapts and you form new habits.

    It's also important to practice self-compassion throughout the process of rewiring your brain. Sure, it's easy to be hard on yourself when you fall short of your goals, but this only creates a negative cycle that's hard to break. Instead, you should practice self-compassion and be gentle with yourself as you navigate the ups and downs of creating new habits.

    Imagine for a moment that you're a college student. You’re struggling to keep up with your coursework and have fallen behind on a paper. Naturally, you feel overwhelmed and anxious about the situation.

    In this scenario, you have two options. You can either beat yourself up for falling behind and add more stress and pressure to the situation, or you can practice self-compassion and give yourself the space and understanding you need to catch up.

    To do so, you could take a few deep breaths and remind yourself that it's normal to struggle sometimes. You could give yourself permission to take a break and come back to the paper with a fresh perspective. You could also remind yourself of past successes and accomplishments to boost your confidence and motivation.

    By practicing self-compassion in this way, you're not only reducing your stress levels and improving your mood, but you're also creating new neural connections in your brain that support positive self-talk and self-care.

    Ich bin begeistert. Ich liebe Bücher aber durch zwei kleine Kinder komme ich einfach nicht zum Lesen. Und ja, viele Bücher haben viel bla bla und die Quintessenz ist eigentlich ein Bruchteil.

    Genau dafür ist Blinkist total genial! Es wird auf das Wesentliche reduziert, die Blinks sind gut verständlich, gut zusammengefasst und auch hörbar! Das ist super. 80 Euro für ein ganzes Jahr klingt viel, aber dafür unbegrenzt Zugriff auf 3000 Bücher. Und dieses Wissen und die Zeitersparnis ist unbezahlbar.

    Extrem empfehlenswert. Statt sinnlos im Facebook zu scrollen höre ich jetzt täglich zwischen 3-4 "Bücher". Bei manchen wird schnelle klar, dass der Kauf unnötig ist, da schon das wichtigste zusammen gefasst wurde..bei anderen macht es Lust doch das Buch selbständig zu lesen. Wirklich toll
