Decision making bias: risk aversion
The fear of failure, judgement or rejection, guilt, uncertainty can create unpleasant sensations that we are legitimately inclined to avoid.
80% of our brain activity is unconscious. Our unconscious brain perceives elements of our environment that we don’t identify consciously. Billions of neurones select, classify, memorise and categorize the experiences we live into “positive” ones that should be done again and “negative” ones, to be avoided.
Meditate to fight the loss of grey matter
It’s been a few years since we know that the regular practice of meditation reduces significantly stress, anxiety and depressive disorders. Chronic stress is particularly toxic for the neuronal activity because of the excessive concentration of a hormone, the cortisol, it generates in our body. However, more recent researches bring an additional information about the practice of meditation.
The brain: precursor of selection sort
Our brain does a lot of selection sort: it tends to see or hear more the information that reinforce our convictions and to ignore the ones that question or discredit our believes.
Avoiding unnecessary comparisons
There is nothing to brag about but when we earn more than our neighbour or when we get a better pay rise than our colleague, the reward pathways are activating in our brain and produce a dopamine discharge, the “happy” hormone.
