mindfulness + the brain

our brains are all about connections. neural connections, that is.

our neural wiring guides our thoughts, speech, behavior + worldview.

our brains make new neural connections, growing + changing over time. aka neuroplasticity.

our thoughts drive these new connections, shaping our brains in ways helpful + harmful.

mindfulness allows us to choose the thoughts we want.

to design our minds.
