How To Overcome Feelings Of Anxiety And Depression

Posted on 12th June 2023

Did you know that, as adults, we continue to produce new neurons in the brain?

๐Ÿง  This process is called neurogenesis; it helps us to form new connections and plays a key role in:

โ–ถ๏ธ Retaining new information and recalling it later on

โ–ถ๏ธ Forming new neural pathways, improving our ability to process information and make decisions

โ–ถ๏ธ Boosting our mood and reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety

Moreover, studies have shown that adults who engage in activities that promote neurogenesis, such as exercise and cognitive training, have a ๐—น๐—ผ๐˜„๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ธ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ผ๐—ฝ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜…๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐˜๐˜† ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜€.

So itโ€™s worth investing a little but ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—ป๐˜€๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜ ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ด๐˜† ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—บ๐—ผ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ด๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜€๐—ถ๐˜€. Hereโ€™s how:

What you might not have considered before, though, is the direct impact that these highly recommended practices can have on your ability to ๐—น๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ป, ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ, ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐—ฒ ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป๐˜€, ๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐—ผ๐˜€๐˜ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—บ๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ฑ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ๐˜‚๐—ฐ๐—ฒ ๐˜€๐˜†๐—บ๐—ฝ๐˜๐—ผ๐—บ๐˜€ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜…๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐˜๐˜†.

So if you're lost, stuck in your career or in crisis with important business decisions, add more neurogenesis-promoting activities to your daily routines and ๐˜„๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ฐ๐—ต ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ฏ๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—น๐—ผ๐—ด๐˜† ๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ฝ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ด๐—ฒ๐˜ ๐˜‚๐—ป๐˜€๐˜๐˜‚๐—ฐ๐—ธ.

So what little practices can you add (or replace) to your routine to promote your neurogenesis?
