AMAZING! How Neuroscience Affects Your Daily Life

Neuroscience is amazing!

Neuroscience is basically the science of the brain, how it communicates to itself and how it makes our body work. One of the most fascinating observations about the brain is this… The quality of your thoughts πŸ€” has a huge impact on the quality of your LIFE. 🌞

Science says we think somewhere around 50,000 thoughts DAILY. And many of those thoughts are how we feel about ourselves. πŸ’­

That’s a lot of thoughts!!

So. If we’re gonna think that much, let’s give our brain thoughts that are nurturing, healthy and encouraging! 😁

What’s The Definition of Insanity?

Definition of insanity: Doing the same thing over and over yet expecting different results.

You can’t stay the same and expect things to change. Albert Einstein said it best… “Nothing happens until something moves.” Ask yourself:

Are you moving?
Are you growing?
Are you doing something different to make a difference?

What you think of yourself and how you envision things to be is a great starting point. Yes! However… Wishing for things to change is not the same as DOING something to make those changes happen.

Don’t just think different… Take bold, scary, positive actions to BE different.

Sending you positive vibes!

Spark Dance Competition 2013

A few shots from the semi finals of Spark Show Production’s dance talent contest at Market Village in Markham. My Toronto dance studio Byfield Dance Experience is one of the prestigious sponsors for the event, and I’m one of the judges for the competition.

The finals are Saturday December 7th (TOMORROW) at CNTV Theatre, and the event is huge. How huge?

One of the prizes is a 5 day cruise in the Bahamas. That huge. Check out Spark Dance Competition on facebook to see behind the scenes video. And below are some shots from official photographer Paul Yang.

Sending positive energy, focus and determination to all the participants. Such a great dance event to start the holidays!
