Get going with the exercises in YOU ARE HERE, NEW THINKING and LOVE YOU (below). Are you ready to start? Let’s do this.
FEEL GOOD ABOUT YOU
Feel good about deciding
You did it. You started something new. You engaged your brain in a positive way to reduce worry and anxiety. In neuroscience speak it’s your pre frontal cortex, the boss of your brain, that’s responsible for making this decision. That’s the part of the brain that you’re going to exercise more on the path to a healthier you. For now, feel good about deciding.
Set your sights on positive
You’ve committed to making changes that will positively improve your life. Making decisions like this helps overcome the habits that can pull you toward negative impulses and routines. Making decisions like this puts you on a track with positive influences and habits. Habits are rooted in the dorsal striatum part of your brain. This is the part of your brain that controls habits—positive and negative. You’ll be exercising this part of your brain to create new habits that support a healthier you.
Power up, calm down
Making decisions is empowering. When you have power over the smaller things it affects life in big ways. Making decisions changes your perception of the world. Finding solutions to problems is empowering and has a calming effect. That calming feeling is your fronto-limbic system, the part of you that regulates your emotional state, chilling out and taking a breather. Throughout the program, you’ll be powering up to calm down.
