Hi and welcome to Practical neuroscience, a course of over 30 exercises that can change your brain, your mind, your life. My name is Ina Ilie and my mission is to develop thinking skills by means of exercises.

Theory can help us understand why some things work for us and others don't, but the only way we can improve and change our brains and our lives is through our own practice, hands-on experience.

I find working out the mind one of the most important things we can do for ourselves and my purpose in this course is to give you exercises you can do even in a few minutes a day that can help you grow a better mind. Of course, you can exercise longer if you will, but even a few minutes a day can help you open up a different perspective, develop new thinking skills and bring new insights on what you can do with your personal mind. It can give you control of your own neuroplasticity, which is the ability of the brain to change and improve.

There are also techniques that help you deal with strong emotions and stress because the mind processes emotions too and because stress as a biological mechanism that can stop us from thinking clearly. You don't need to think too much when you are running from a lion, so to speak. Therefore, in order to have a better mind, clear thinking, focus and take good decisions, we need to move in two directions: 1. control stress and strong emotions, and 2. work out the thinking skills. And we have practices for both areas in this course.

The exercises that I am suggesting you are fun, challenging, short and can give you an insight on the many, amazing possibilities in which we can grow better minds. What I selected for this course, out of many, have all been tested, through research and practice, and they are all able to produce impressive results, therefore I strongly suggest you to try all the exercises in this course at least once.

There are also some very possible side effects of this course. Some of you may become so convinced and attached, or impressed with one or more of these techniques, that you may turn them into daily practice. And this is good, because this is how we build new skills and new thinking habits. But it is up to you to decide what works best and what you want to turn into daily practice.

We are all unique, in different moments of our lives, with different cognitive needs, that is why I have prepared for you this set of over 30 varied exercises so that you could choose what fits you best, helps you more right now. What grows your mind this very moment, with the time you have at your disposal today.

Thank you for taking interest in this course and that you want to become a better version of yourself every day! Every change we make in our thinking can count immensely for our life, and I am glad you are taking this step today! This course gives you access to our online community. Once inside, you can ask me questions, get in touch with the others, share concerns and progress. I am here to help you enjoy the best mind exploring experience possible, with 30 days money-back guarantee. See you inside!
