Mirror Neurons and why you should surround yourself with positive people.
THis is the second time I’ve started this post. Accidentally deleted the last one. Bastard. Anyway, the title is a bit clever sounding isn’t it. Oooooooh. Mirror neurons. Check you out and you fancy patter. What the fuck is a mirror neuron.
Good question. I’m not going to go in to all the science behind it but apparently mirror neurons are part of the secret of how humans learn from others so easily. How it works on a basic level is say for example you watch someone lift up a bottle of beer. Well as you watch this action mirror neutrons are fired in your brain similar to the ones of the person who is doing the action. Does that make sense so far? Good. AS well as simple actions mirror neurons work with emotions. For example if you are with someone who is very negative then your brain might fire similar neurons and you might feel negative as well. Of course there are ways to overcome these things however you are more likely to feel negative if you are around negative people as a result of these mad neurons. In a similar way if you are around positive and happy people you are more likely to have your positive and happy neurons firing in a similar way.Bellow is an example how this works. watch this and notice how you mirror neurons make you laugh as well.
and then there is this one. These mad babies will drive your neurons nuts.
Anyway the whole point of this post it to say ” Surround your self with positive people because it is scientifically proven that you are more likely to feel positive if you are surrounded by positive people.
At the moment I work 3 or 4 days in a warehouse. The job is quite mind numbing. The people I work with are great but because of the job a lot of people are walking about with negative body language and miserable faces. I’ts very hard for this not to have an effect on you. Although there are ways to do this and I can overcome it sometimes . I feel like a lot of the time I am fighting against the shitey neurons getting fired in my brain. If that was all I did I would probably go nuts.
Outside of work I have recently made an effort to get out and about to meet more positive people by going along to things like Toastmasters and personal development seminars. These positive people are definitely having the desired effect :0
I’m now gradually reducing the amount of hours I have to work in the warehouse and moving in to doing my own thing full time. Being around more positive people and working on the new show The Fuck it list is definitely helping.
Come along to my show and be part of a room full of positive people having a laugh and getting your happy neurons fired to send happy chemical round your body.
