How Are You Rewarding Your Brain?

How Are You Rewarding Your Brain?

Have you ever signed up for a “rewards program” with your favorite retail store, gas station, or credit card company?

If you have, you know that this is a fantastic way to get rewarded for things you do anyway such as fuel up your car or buy an occasional coffee. In the simplest form, a rewards program is a gift you choose to give yourself.  It’s basically your commitment to participate.

Did you know you can participate in a built-in rewards program EVERY DAY for the stuff you do and the types of thoughts you form?

Your brain produces a chemical (amongst many others) called “dopamine” when it perceives pleasure, or that you’ve done something good for it.

One of the main feedback systems built into your brain’s operating system is the dopamine reward system. This system allows each and every one of us to recognize potential rewards and gives us the feeling of hope to act out the steps to receive the reward.

Even simply closing your eyes and envisioning yourself being happy can produce a dopaminergic reward, and deliver a chemical rush of pleasure. Repeat episodes of happiness actually train your brain to repeat the patterns of behavior with more ease.

Dale Partridge, Author of People Over Profit, can be quoted saying

“Pattern is powerful.”

If you havn’t heard this yet, one important job your brain works on at all times is to build comfortable patterns within your environment.

Simply stated: give a brain a reward and a brain will repeat, because it’s comfortable.

WHY SHOULD YOU CARE ABOUT THESE PATTERNS?

Because you have the ability to control them.

Humans are capable of consciously pointing their focus on creating good patterns which help keep you and your family healthy.  “Taking some time” for yourself to establish an educated plan can be a barrier for some people.

That’s where I come in to solve this problem with house calls. 

What may seem like a barrier could be the key to using your brain to easily enter that healthy reward program once and for always.

There are millions of people in the world right now who may not be able to control their own healthcare environment.  The message here today simply says:

TAKE ADVANTAGE THAT FACT THAT YOU CAN!
