Getting Your Brain on Your Side

Course #: 6056060508
Course Description:

Wouldn’t it be nice if we got an owner’s manual with our brains? We don’t, but if we pay attention to what neuroscience is revealing about how our brain’s function, we can get those little gray cells working for us instead of against us. We’ll explore surprisingly easy ways to get your brain on your side. You’ll get a grounding in the brain’s fundamental operating principles and learn how to make the most of neuroplasticity – our brain’s ability to grow and change throughout our lives. You’ll learn why we all experience negative self-talk and how to talk back. You’ll learn how to increase your willpower and how to use the power of habit to improve your life. You’ll also learn how to have more insights, how sleep, exercise, happiness, and generosity affect your cognitive abilities, and more. Each class contains information presented in a lively fashion with workshop exercises and discussion. There is no required reading, but the instructor will offer suggestions for relevant books.
