. BRAIN YOUR SUPREME ASSET CHANGES MOMENT BY MOMENT, a highly plastic and dynamic organ of the body. About one lac chemical reaction occurs per minute, to keep it functioning in a normal state. These reactions change moment by moment. The brain is a massive network of interconnected neurons, that fire all the time, transmitting messages from one neuron to another. They are mediated through neurochemicals known as neurotransmitters. It is the basis of our thought processes and can be altered by various other factors. Let us explore these. 

Thinking: It’s an activity that is mediated through the neurotransmitters acetylcholine, nor-epinephrine, and serotonin. Precursors of these are Amino acids, which are protein derivatives. So a good protein diet is necessary for proper thinking. For this reason, a protein-containing breakfast is necessary. 

Music Effect-Music stimulates both the right and left lobes of the brain. Vibrations by music increase the neurotransmitter Serotonin level, which optimizes emotions, moods, sleep, and appetite. It evokes positive mood, pleasure, and motivation by increasing neurotransmitter Dopamine levels. It saves us from Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease.  

Breathing effect. – Breathing has a profound effect on the brain and mood. Deep breathing causes the secretion of a feel-good and relaxation chemical neuropeptide from the respiratory center of the brain. 

Meditation effect clears the clutter in our brain and negative thinking. Makes it responsive rather than reactive. Intensifies activities in the Lt prefrontal lobe of the brain. This results in happiness and positive thinking. 

Conclusion: The brain is a highly neuroplastic (changing) and dynamic part of your body, It is the very existence of ourselves, so protect it and keep it healthy. It’s only 2 % of your body weight but requires 20% of energy to keep it going. It also says, “Use me or lose me.”                                                Satish Tripathi
