Our Sprout — The Joy Submerged in Uncharted waters
By Fiona Macgill
Exploring the uncharted territories of trying new things has always been a tantalizing journey for the curious mind. Beyond the thrill of discovery and the enrichment of our life experiences, trying something new offers a plethora of benefits for the brain, enriching our cognitive toolkit in profound ways.
First and foremost, novelty activates our brain’s reward centres. When we embark on unfamiliar paths, our brain releases dopamine, the feel-good neurotransmitter. This not only infuses us with a sense of excitement but also strengthens memory formation. Every new experience becomes a mental bookmark, etching itself vividly into our memory.
Trying something new also challenges our cognitive agility. Whether it’s learning a new language, picking up a musical instrument, or venturing into a new hobby, these endeavours demand mental flexibility and adaptability. Our brain’s plasticity, its remarkable ability to rewire itself, gets a workout, fostering improved problem-solving skills and creativity.
Stepping out of our comfort zone also nurtures resilience. It teaches us that setbacks and failures are an important path to growth. This attitude shift is a cognitive bonus, as it enhances our capacity to handle stress and adversity with grace.
In the realm of social interactions, trying new things broadens our horizons. Meeting new people, encountering diverse perspectives, and navigating unfamiliar social situations stimulate the brain’s social cognition networks. This, in turn, boosts our empathy and emotional intelligence.
Ultimately, embracing novelty is a lifelong investment in brain health. It keeps our cognitive functions sharp, enhances our adaptability, and fosters a zest for lifelong learning. So, whether it’s embarking on a new travel adventure, sampling exotic cuisine, or simply picking up a fresh book genre, the brain revels in the joy of exploration, benefiting not only from the journey itself but from the long term enhancements it bestows upon our cognitive well-being.
Which Liquid Room services have you been wanting to try but holding back from?
Just a 10 minute MORNING RITUAL can help you stock up your energy and increase your capacity to function for the rest of the day!
– Have natural sunlight for at least 10 minutes
– Choose movements that you enjoy as soon as you wake up
– Hydrate well to cleanse and aid digestion (opens appetite too)
– Journal. (can’t stress this enough) A simple 10 minute brain dump. Write anything, even if it is gossip you’ve heard or the food you’ve eaten or what you want to do today but won’t get to. Just brain dump.
Take care of yourself with little things and watch the ripple effect.
What’s with the pose – Crow Pose
Crow Pose fosters inner focus and concentration in the present. This pose is a symbol for justice and longevity. It strengthens the sacral chakra as well as the wrist, forearms, and abdomen while stretching your upper back.
Mastering Crow builds your yoga confidence and opens the door to many more poses involving arm balance. It can also improve proprioception and enhance your body control.
