When we learn and laught, we feel better
The facts are simple: Your brain is like a muscle, and it needs exercise. Its substance may be different, but plain and simple, like any muscle, it needs exercise to stay healthy. But how do you accomplish this? From this point on, think about strengthening your brain. Your brain needs a workout, and you may be surprised to learn that the best way for this to occur is information! Yes, plain old information. It's any kind of information which activates the neurons (…).
The more this occurs, the better we feel, and the neurons are more likely to increase.
This is how we change and grow.
When we learn and when we problem-solve, we feel better. It may come as a surprise to you to know that humor is a great way to stretch your brain. Humor can feed your brain in the same way that complex information does. In fact, the more you laugh or the funnier the information, the more neurons are activated. Singer Reba McIntyre likes to repeat an old saying: "To succeed in life you need three things: a wishbone, a backbone, and a funny bone." Think back over the times in your life when you experienced a momentary discouraging setback. All seemed bleak as you counted up your losses. Bouncing back didn't seem like a viable option. Then, in the midst of the dark season, something struck you as funny. You heard a hilarious joke or watched a gut-splitting comedy, or just enjoyed a fun dinner out with really good friends where laughter was the main course of the evening. Suddenly, you felt better! For no apparent reason, your entire outlook changed, yet your circumstances were still the same.
Yet, certainly, the wise learn many things from their enemies; for caution preserves all things. From a friend you could not learn this, but your foe immediately obliges you to learn it. For example, the states have learned from enemies, and not from friends, to build lofty walls, and to possess ships of war. And this lesson preserves children, house, and possessions.
The present theory then must be considered to be a suggested program or framework for future research and must stand ...
It’s saying no.
That’s your first hint that something’s alive. It says no. That’s how you know a baby is starting to turn into a person. They run around saying no all day, throwing their aliveness at everything to see what it’ll stick to. You can’t say no if you don’t have desires and opinions and wants of your own. You wouldn’t even want to.
No is the heart of thinking.
