Are brains are powerful and they can be trained through various mental exercises.
Like any ‘muscle’ they need to be exercised.
Do you wish you had more positive thoughts flowing through your brain?
Do you secretly hope that most if not all your negatives thoughts would disappear?
Do you understand that the positive of positive thinking is good for your physical body?
Our brain is not designed to create happiness, as much as we wish it were so. Our brain evolved to promote survival. It saves the happy chemicals (dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin) for opportunities to meet a survival need, and only releases them in short spurts which are quickly metabolized. This motivates us to keep taking steps that stimulate our happy chemicals.
