The Brain & Anxiety: 3 Ways to Change Your Brain (Literally!)

Can we change the way we think about things to change our brain to be less anxious? Absolutely! Until recently we thought that the brain is fully developed (and therefore unchangeable) by the end of childhood. Recent brain research though has shown that the brain actually possesses a remarkable capacity to reorganize pathways, create new connections and, in some cases, even create new neurons.

  • Do something new. 
  • Do something scary. 
  • Learn how to think about things differently.
