Adapt to Change, Good for your Brain
Brain elasticity is improving as we adapt to the recent Covid-19 upheaval.
‘Brain Elasticity’ is our ability to create new pathways of thinking. “In response to stimuli, the brain remodels itself by reorganising existing neurological circuits, by generating new neurological circuits, and by dendritic growth”*.
We’ve had to:
- remodel our lifestyles,
- reorganise our schedules,
- generate new habits,
- find ourselves working in new directions, with new technology, and
- branch out into new networks (dendritic growth).
Our pathways in the brain are being reformed to include this unprecedented experience for many. The most common reference point has been the “Spanish Flu” over a century ago.
We’re now in uncertain times, and our brain is working hard to keep us alive; thrive, survive.
We’ve seen the flight/fright response in impulse buying in supermarkets, and the unfortunate increase in anxiety due to the uncertainty of the impact the virus has on our lifestyle, school, events and employment.
This ‘survival mode’ response by our body and mind, also impacts our spiritual wellbeing. We have seen on social media supportive evidence that ‘we’re all in this together’ which is helpful in times like this knowing we’re not alone and we have a Tribe to which we belong.
Perhaps our day of judgement has arrived? This form of Armageddon is an adjustment to our lives. It’s revealing the truth of our existence, who we are, where we belong and what matters to us. And this is where I’d like to pause for a moment………
Herein lies the gem. The pearl of wisdom. The seed of innovation, adaptation and survival.
“Adapt and thrive” is a concept that leaders across the world instill in their plans for sustainability and future success. Alfred Russel Wallace and Charles Darwin identified the adaptation of the species essential for the evolution of the animal and plant world **
