Neuroplasticity is the brain’s innate ability to open your personal fuse box and rewire its electrical connections and output.

Research has proven that the brain is malleable, able to repair, strengthen, adapt and perform more efficiently with practice. We can influence our brain development and performance when we challenge our body, mind, and soul.

May is the National Mental Health Awareness Month. A great time to reflect on your Mental health, and overall well-being.

Now how do I rewire my brain and overcome self-limiting beliefs? You might be asking.

Here’re 5 exercises to realign your thoughts, rewrite your story and leave behind the stories that longer serve you.

Identify Your Self-Limiting Belief:

Going back into your brain’s circuit board, identify what in your brain is holding you back, note your unhealthy self-limiting thoughts, don’t get caught up in them, observe and question them, and practice compassion.

Becoming aware of Self-limiting beliefs such as “I’m such a loser, no one likes me”, and adopting a new healthy belief is key to preventing them from becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy and breaking the vicious negative loop.

It’s important to differentiate your healthy core beliefs from your self-limiting beliefs that are guiding your decisions. Unhealthy limiting beliefs take a toll on your emotional and mental wellbeing.

Talk to yourself as the person you want to become, follow the bright, pure white light shining at the end of the tunnel, and trust yourself to find a path to overcome your self-limiting beliefs.

Physical Activity:

Physical activity strengthens the physical vessel (the body), and your emotions, and strengthens your brain muscles too!

Especially taking up aerobic sports and long-distance running, for example, is like a windmill of oxygen rhythmically being fed through your mouth or nose, which circulates through your blood. This releases the floodgates of serotonin throughout your body and all the happy hormones.

Physical activity is also beneficial for cognitive abilities, creating meaningful relationships and aids with memory. Neuroplasticity helps uplift the shadows of depression when regularly engaging in exercise.

Neurofeedback Training:

Neurofeedback training uses the power of neuroplasticity the brain’s ability to change itself to improve well-being.

To many people, this might seem like a daunting task, science has shown that the brain has the ability to learn and change with practice, just like the muscles.

For example, an Olympic weightlifter trains daily to master the skill, the more they practice their cell muscles are being trained to lift weight easier, and the muscle changes, both in structure and strength.

So does the brain, as you practice neurofeedback training your brain cells (Neurons) learn how to quickly return to calm, help you to easily reframe your unhealthy limiting beliefs, and improve your wellness and life's satisfaction.


Practicing gratitude helps you feel grounded and centered! It creates a peaceful shift that anchors your day, and your relationships and makes it easier to focus on what is important. Research has associated gratitude with greater happiness, positive emotions, and improved health and wellbeing.

Here are some easy ways to practice gratitude:

  • Establish a gratitude practice: Keep a gratitude journal, practicing daily is encouraged, choosing a system that works for you, what time of day, and how many times you’ll write in your journal improves self-efficacy. Offer yourself grace and compassion when you forget to practice. Start small.

  • Write in the morning or at the end of the day 2 to 3 things that you are grateful for.

  • Commit: Use reminders to help you remember to practice. Leave a post on the mirror to give yourself and the people around you the gift of gratitude.


A visualization is a powerful tool that allows you to reframe and redirect your unhealthy thoughts into a positive mindset. It helps you craft and designs your aspirations based on how you want to feel and show up.

As the artist holding the paintbrush and designing what your reality will look like. Creating the framework and being ready to step through the portal of what you know is possible.

Visualization helps you tap into the freedom of the subconscious mind to shape the present moment here and now.

In Conclusion:

The brain has the ability to rewire itself through neuroplasticity and start creating positive outcomes in your life using the power of neurofeedback.

Utilizing these 5 exercises will help your inner light shine brighter, eliminating unhealthy self-limiting beliefs and living harmoniously with your authentic vision of self.
