8 Simple, Easy Ways to Ensure Your Brain's Peak Performance: Surprise yourself with just how powerful your supercomputer brain really is
You've heard the adage: "We're only using 10% of our brain", presumably leaving the remaining 90% idle, useless, not acting in our favor. But is this true?
No! While media, culture, Hollywood has run away with this idea (which came from 1980's research that suggested only 10% of our brain was conscious and therefore leaving 90% subconscious), in actual fact you are using 100% of your brain all the time. Every neuron can be conceptualized as having something I call 'neuronal FOMO' and it resembles this: if a neuron isn't actively part of a neural network in use, it misses out on food, water, cleanliness, excitement, usefulness, friends, and ultimately, survival. SO, every neuron, each with a will to survive, tethers itself to as many neural networks as possible, in an attempt to hedge its bets against potential obsolescence. Accordingly, your whole brain is indeed in use, all the time.
Today, we go one step further and discuss how to increase your brain's performance even further: what do we need to do to increase the functionality and performance of all 100% of our brain to its maximum?
