Try something new today

To re-wire our brains 🧠 most efficiently, we need to make the process new and interesting. In trying out new things, we stimulate the parts of our brains 🧠 that can enhance our learning. For babies, everything is new. Like Liam here in the picture: he is trying a solid food for the first time in his life, yammy potatoe pure‼️😊

Babies progress very quickly in learning new skills. We’ve been gradually losing this ability as we were growing older. To go back a little bit to being like a baby, let’s try to use a trick. Let’s approach things in novel ways. 💡

Motivation centres in our brain 🧠 get stimulated by things that are new, interesting, different, rewarding. Relaxation is an essential ingredient for learning and solving problems. Let’s try to relax in a new and unusual way.


To bring yourself quickly into relaxation mode, try yawning. Believe it it not, yawning is the fastest way to reach a deeply relaxed state of mindful awareness and remove excess neural stress.

Start with a few deep breaths. Breathe in and as you breathe out, imagine you’re blowing candles on your birthday cake 🎂 Slowly extinguish all the candles and repeat until you feel calm and relaxed.

Now try to yawn 🥱 If a yawn doesn’t come, just fake it until you make it. Try to yawn mindfully, fully immersed in the present moment, observing where the yawn starts, how it develops, when it ends. Do a few mindful yawns and observe the shifts in your mind towards a more relaxed state.

In this deeply relaxed state of mindful awareness ask your intuition to reveal to you a suggestion about a problem you’re trying to solve, an answer to a question you’ve been scratching your head about and see what comes to mind. Using novel approaches, your brain 🧠 may respond differently from its habitual ways. Explore new strategies and try new avenues while also taking care of your brain 🧠 by providing new stimulation.

NeuroCoaching approaches things differently, in novel ways.

NeuroCoaching is based on experiential learning. Unlike other forms of personal development and business coaching, which are primarily anchored in traditional, psychological, cognitive, or metaphysical theories, NeuroCoaching involves new forms of mindful communication and intuitive problem-solving that have emerged from the collaborative brain-scan research of Andrew Newberg (Jefferson University), Mark Waldman, and Chris Manning (both from Loyola Marymount University). 

These brain-based, evidence-based, and mindfulness-based strategies have been shown to alter specific brain networks in ways that instantly enhance one’s intuitive ability to calmly find creative solutions to virtually any obstacle or problem: in the workplace and at home, in personal relationships and social situations, and for reducing stress, anxiety, and emotional trauma. It is an experiential process using a unique form of mutual dialog that gives the client new tools that can easily be integrated into one’s daily life.

You know how some people get bullied in the workplace? And sometimes flashbacks from the past are haunting them even years after they left that situation? Well, what I do is to help them remove the emotional charge from their traumatic experiences and find their path to freedom.
