Tip o’ the Morning to Ya – The Brain

Rich Habits Word of the Day

Intuition – Subconscious, hidden.  Tom knew that in order for his intuition to work to his advantage he needed good, positive thoughts, emotions and daily habits.

Rich Habits Fact of the Day

The brain is composed of three parts: Brain Stem, Limbic System and Neocortex. The brain stem is the oldest part of the brain. It controls vital bodily functions, such as breathing, organ functions and heart rate. It is also where the fight or flight response resides. The limbic system is the next oldest. It is where our emotions come from and where short-term memory resides. The neocortex is the most recent part of the brain. This is where our intellect, decision making and higher reasoning are found. The neocortex is also known as the cerebellum, which includes the basal ganglia, where habits are stored.

Rich Habits Lesson of the Day

Our conscious (neocortex) and subconscious (brain stem and limbic system) need to work together in harmony in order  to live a happy, successful life. Positive or negative emotions and positive or negative thinking are programmed into our subconscious, and good or bad habits are stored in our conscious. Positive emotions, positive thinking and good habits lead to a happy, successful life. Negative emotions, negating thinking and bad habits lead to an unhappy, unsuccessful life. Our brain is very much like a computer. It can be programmed for happiness or unhappiness and success or failure by our emotions, thoughts and habits.
