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 🤔 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. 💭

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! 😁

TEACHERS: Why A Little Encouragement Can Do Wonders

Shawn Byfield teaches the next generation of dancers.

Hey teachers, a little encouragement can go a long way!

Never underestimate the power of your words with your students. The words that come out of your mouth matter. I know sometimes it doesn’t feel like it… But some of it will *actually* stick!

Encouragement is always memorable. So try your best to make sure whatever you DO say, sticks for the right reasons.

Yes, it’s dance competition season. So train hard, show up focused, and commit to your team that you’ll do your best. But the most valuable prize is this: knowing you got out there and left your HEART on that stage. Dance with PASSION. When you start living like THAT, know what happens? Magic. Magic happens. And that’s a prize more fulfilling than ANY trophy.

Sending you energy and high-fives,

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!
