The Neuroscience of Mindfulness
Our Emotional Sixth Sense Neuroscientific studies are finding that our brain circuits for emotions are just as tangible as circuits for our other five senses. Advanced imaging techniques can now observe this. Recent fascination with colouring -in for adults joins a long list of techniques that have been employed by humans to calm the brain and help us with our emotions. Our ways of dealing with this intuitively have included tasks with some return for our time and effort. Tasks such as knitting and gardening. However, we now enter a world where these tasks are redundant for many of us. We employ gardeners and buy scarves. The discoveries of focused activities which take our minds away from the emotions of day to day living are returning again but in new formats such as colouring-in books and even lego building blocks for adults. In this book, Dr Rodski explores the science behind these activities and many others which we humans crave for to help us through our emotional world. The world of mindfulness, the world of our 6th sense.
