Not me! How DARE you think I was talking about myself!
Ok, here’s the deal. I’ll admit it. I’m unhappy sometimes. I really try (and I mean really REALLY try) to remain positive, but sometimes our brain just doesn’t want to play along. I’m talking about at the most basic level: Neurons and synapses and other such craziness.
The problem we’re confronted with at that point is pretty straightforward: How can we train our brain to be more positive? Can we? Well, yes, actually. My geeky self sometimes watches TED talks while I eat lunch (or dinner…or a snack) and I came across a gem today. It’s 12 minutes long, but totally worth it. And, it’s funny!
The greatest take-away from this video? We have the power to persuade our own brains to be more positive. How cool is that?!
The speaker challenges us to think of 3 things each day that we’re thankful for. My 3 for today are weekends, my readers, and Annie’s Asian Sesame salad dressing. Seriously, the stuff is SO delicious.
You all are delicious, too. Just in a different way.
