When coordinated with music, dance can require both cognitive and physical engagement. It will help your muscles to develop and help with your coordination. Along with that, since you require to remember the movement, people with Parkinson's and other neuromuscular conditions can find a significant improvement in their memory and visuospatial processing.
Many studies have shown that Dance/Movement Therapy helps visual memory and attentiveness as well as neuroplasticity in older adults. Plus, there has been an improvement in cognitive functions of adults with mild cognitive problems after they go through a 40-week dance program. Randomized trials have also found out dance therapy can also help in improving executive processes like organizing, planning, etc.
Dancing helps in altering your brain structure by creating a few deep channels in your cerebral cortex. A review saw that dance intervention helps in changing the brain structure by increasing the volume of parahippocampal and hippocampal, that is, structures involved with memory. It increases grey matter volume as well in the precentral gyrus, which helps motor control. Plus, white matter in corpus callosum can help in improving communication and developing white matter integrity.
Dance/movement therapy can have a significant impact on your psyche and body. It shows how our body is not really alienated from our mind. They exist in harmony. Small movements can help us bring back revoked memory, engage our creative side, and help us fight depression.
QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: Generally, stress can lock us into liguistic patterns, when we find ourselves saying the same thing in response to stress. Use our Clean Sweep Clearing Spray to directly "reset" brain responses to give more space in which to calm and re-assess the situation.
7 Situations That Change Your Brain
Many situations change your brain. And we're not referring to strange or unusual situations but rather normal, everyday ones. The interesting thing about learning about these situations that change your brain is that it lets you adjust your lifestyle. Some habits make you smarter, while others cause damage.
1. Reading novels changes your brain - Research from Emory University established that reading a novel changes the connectivity of the brain. In another study published in Psychological Science, researchers asked a group of volunteers to read the work of Franza Kafka. After they did, their cerebral parameters changed. In other words, they became more intelligent.
2. Not getting good sleep - Not getting good sleep is another situation that changes your brain. At Harvard Medical School, scientists were able to prove that sleeping only four hours a night for just three days causes the death of certain neurons.
3. Physical pain - Physical pain causes important changes in your brain, even after your injury has healed. A study by Northwestern University proved that any pain that lasts for more than six months causes structural changes to your brain. You can see the most significant changes in the hippocampus, a brain structure related to learning and memory. This not only affects intellectual functioning but can hinder emotional control.
4. Learning something new - Learning something new generates changes in neural connections. When you acquire new knowledge, different areas of the brain activate. During that process, called myelinization, nerve impulses begin to travel faster, which increases neural activity.
5. Juggling - A study conducted at the University of Oxford found that the brain's white matter increases by 5% when you juggle. White matter influences the speed at which your brain can work. In this study, 24 volunteers juggled balls for 30 minutes a day. After a while, their brains manifested changes. Their peripheral vision and ability to rapidly notice stimuli particularly increased.
6. Gaining fat - Gaining fat is another situation that changes your brain in a negative way. Paul Thompson is a researcher at the University of California concluded that obesity reduces the size of the brain in older adults. Overweight people have a brain that is 16 years older than it should be according to their chronological age. Fat tends to clog arteries, which means that less oxygen reaches the brain.
7. Meditation - Research conducted by Dr. Sara Lazar of Massachusetts General Hospital proved that half an hour of meditation for eight weeks produces lasting effects on the brain. The clinical trials demonstrated that meditation increases the density of grey matter, the hippocampus, and other areas. In addition to this, it leads to higher learning capacity, less stress, more consciousness, and the capacity for introspection, among other things.
QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: All of our Meditation Elixirs were designed to augment brain function (whether you're actually meditating or not).
Time Paradoxes Are Actually No Big Deal
Unintended "Butterfly Effect"-style consequences of time travel might be a juicy problem in science fiction, but physicists now have reason to believe in a quantum landscape, tweaking history in this way shouldn't be a major problem.
Since going back to a previous moment in time is still in the "too hard" basket, a pair of physicists from the Los Alamos National Laboratory in the US went with the next best thing and created a simulation using an IBM-Q quantum computer.
"On a quantum computer, there is no problem simulating opposite-in-time evolution, or simulating running a process backwards into the past," says theoretical physicist Nikolai Sinitsyn. It's hardly as complex as a Universe of human actors and historical events, but a small stage made up of correlated quantum states is plenty for researchers to replay events with tiny changes to see how things play out.
"So we can actually see what happens with a complex quantum world if we travel back in time, add small damage, and return. We found that our world survives, which means there's no butterfly effect in quantum mechanics," says Sinitsyn.
The Butterfly Effect was made famous in Ray Bradbury's 1952 short story, "A Sound of Thunder", by having a character change the future by simply stepping on a butterfly. But, quantum states play by an entirely different set of rules, and up until now, no one was sure how the butterfly effect would play out in a quantum world.
"We found that even if an intruder performs state-damaging measurements on the strongly entangled state, we still can easily recover the useful information because this damage is not magnified by a decoding process," says Yan.
Turns out our twitching butterfly is meaningless in the quantum world. The researchers speculate that the qubit's tangled history isn't a delicate bunch of variables prone to disruption, but is instead exactly what preserves its future. The more complex its journey backwards in time, the more determined our time-travelling qubit is to return to the present with its information intact.
QUANTUM HEALTH TIP: There is a strong resiliance of the universe to return to a balanced state, which is what makes our Quantum Balance Crystal so powerful. It will re-align and equalize chaotic energies in the body.
Health & Healing Hack of the Week
Interesting Point of View
This is a great tool from Access Consciousness, especially useful when the monkey mind is jumping all over the place, usually in a crowd of people, where we tend to pick up all kinds of thoughts and attitudes that aren't ours. Some of them, we may actually really believe, and when you can catch yourself believing some judgment or conclusion about someone or something, say, "Interesting Point of View I have that Point of View." This sets up a "two-point" in consciousness and collapses the wave holding the fixed point of view in place. This is especially valuable in close relationships, where we are particularly susceptible to victim/perpetrator strategies. Fixed points of view will dissolve, revealing further possibilities. -- From 25 No Cost Health & Healing Hacks by Boyd Martin)
