Our brains are hardwired to scan for bad news.
Blame the circuitry, I suppose.
But maybe there are equal helpings of good news out there that we flat out miss?
We’re so attuned to:
- Picking a side
Our own native algorithms feed off the frenzy, and like me trying to stop eating peanut m&m’s, the cycle is predictable.
But perhaps, if we get present, look for a small signal, listen closely, take a walk, have a conversation, put down our device, and tune out a big dose of the blaring junk food for our brains…
We can create some new pathways to see the good.
It’s out there.
We just flat out miss it most of the time.
Not because we’re bad.
We just need some rewiring.
