Mirror Neurons: Cells that Read Minds

Mirror Neurons: Cells that Read Minds | Positive Psychology | Scoop.it

Humans, it turns out, have mirror neurons that are far smarter, more flexible and more highly evolved than any of those found in monkeys, a fact that scientists say reflects the evolution of humans' sophisticated social abilities.

 

The human brain has multiple mirror neuron systems that specialize in carrying out and understanding not just the actions of others but their intentions, the social meaning of their behavior and their emotions.

 

"We are exquisitely social creatures," Dr. Rizzolatti said. "Our survival depends on understanding the actions, intentions and emotions of others."

Forget calorie-counting, portion control, 'Eat Right for Your Blood Group' and other fad diets.

 

The NLP Diet is the only way to lose weight - and keep it off - because it is the only diet designed to change your thinking, not the contents of your fridge.

 

Using the highly practical tools of NLP, the world's most effective self-coaching and visualisation method, you will be able not just to set yourself realistic weight-loss goals, but also to meet them.

 

You will learn all the strategies and re-programming techniques you need to change your relationship not just with food, but with yourself, rediscovering how you feel about yourself, your body, and the reasons you eat.

 

This is the only diet guaranteed to change you from the inside out, and keep the weight off for good - so what are you waiting for?
