http://TenSecondsToHappy.podbean.com/e/motivation-from-brain/ When we were growing up everything we experienced was molding and shaping our likes, dislikes, what we deemed pleasurable and not so pleasurable, for better or for worse. How that molding took place is one of the most amazing new understandings Neuroscience has revealed in the last 5 years. Neuroscientists have speculated, hypothesized, guessed, […]

It’s Monday, and although it’s beautiful out you may not be feeling it. Retraining your brain to see all the good in your life takes just a few weeks but if you are still struggling here is a great exercise. It is especially helpful on days when some problem is looming, obscuring your view. The following tool can be invaluable to break through and see your life and world through the eyes of another person. But who should that imaginary person be? Well, believe it or not, it should be you! I will show you how to go back in time to when you were just a kid and then allow the present version of yourself to come and show you all the amazing things you will have in your life. Things you take for granted, such as your home, loved ones, past achievements, and the way others perceive you. But now you will be able to see everything in your life with fresh eyes. When you stand as that younger version of yourself listening to all of the wonderful things you will have in your future, it will be easy to see how far you have come in your life and in your development.
This exercise is particularly helpful if you are struggling with a lot of anxiety because this mental separation disengages all of the judgment filters that you normally force all information through. Until these filters are dissolved, it can be difficult some days to see your life in a positive light. It is as though you are standing in a courtroom trying to convince a jury that your life has some great things in it when the prosecutor suddenly jumps up and yells, “Objection, Your Honor; this is hearsay and can’t be proven!” Yeah, we all have that guy in our head from time to time.
This practice will allow you to be as receptive as a wide-eyed child. Your brain underestimates your past accomplishments and achievements just as it does with many of your present ones. But this method of having someone else tell you about your achievements will allow you to revisit these facts and feel how monumental they really are. Make sure that you hear and see this imaginary version of you; make it as real as you can, and take your time.
Back in Time Exercise:
Kissing. We can look forward it, dread it, crave it or just tolerate it right?
Did you know that the first kiss can determine the future of your relationship? How does a kiss determine if you go to second base or not? This kiss, the kind written about in love songs for hundreds of years, can tell us everything we need to know, about how we are really feeling about another person and how genetically compatible they are for us.
The kiss is truly the litmus test for every relationship, because it is much more than two lips touching. It is like plugging into the central database of another persons brain.

This pod cast is the 4 part to 10 seconds to happy How Do We Start Feeling Better? If you have not listened to part 1 through 3 please do that now so you aren’t lost.
Whenever you take 10 seconds to focus on something that is good and rewarding your brain will excrete those beloved chemicals of dopamine, oxytocin and serotonin. (DOS) Normally when anything positive happens your brain simply notices it, but it is no more than a blip on your radar.
Typically Dopamine,Oxytocin and Serotonin are reserved for experiences like a raise, a new car, sex, new boyfriend or girlfriend or being on vacation. But you are going to learn to retrain your brain to be aware of EVERY positive experience.. And you will surprised to see just how many amazing wonderful things surround you everyday. This new focus will start lifting your spirits in a matter of seconds, which will also lift your overall mood.
This is not positive self talk, it is different from what you have read in self-help books, and is different from therapy, or medication. Because thoughts by themselves are no match for feelings that are under the control of adrenaline and cortisol. That’s like asking a drunk to repeat the phrase “I am sober” and over and over expecting him up sober up!
