Forging new circuits in the brain takes massive action.
- Our brains tend to gravitate towards the lowest possible setting for energy consumption.
- With this comes a drive towards stabilization of behavior. Of avoiding tasks that are too stressing. Because it takes massive energy to rewire the brain.
- It turns out that learning a new language does indeed rewire the brain. And this behavior requires massive action, but it pays back great dividends.
Here’s how learning a new language helps to protect and grow the brain:
