Are the world’s most successful people born smarter than everyone else?
That simple question that led me on a journey to change the lives of millions.
Why millions? Becasue without even knowing it, two recent research discoveries have made it very clear that your brain is in danger. An eye-opening study in Seoul, Korea, as well as research at UCLA revealed some alarming information about our brain development in a mobile universe. Did you know that people are spending an average of 7 hours a day attached to their iPads, smartphones, computers and
The impact is “brain damage” like we’ve never seen before. “Digital Dementia,” a term coined by top German neuroscientist Manfred Spitzer, describes how our reliance on technology is actually play a role in a de-evolution of the mind. Our memories are becoming worse. Or focus is dwindling. Anxiety and stress is rising. And there are scary similarities in brain patterns that show how our reliance on technology is resulting in cognitive breakdown that mirrors that seen in people with head injuries or those with psychiatric illness.
Relying on technology for capabilities that your memory was designed to manage can cause breakdowns in brain performance on all levels. And it’s the simplest things we stop learning that can have the biggest impact. While many people grew up remembering phone numbers and other key information simply by memorizing it, most just relying on phones, apps, and tools.
This over-reliance on technology is creating a brain imbalance. While your left side of the brain—the one that deals with fact-finding—can still develop, your right side becomes under-developed, which typically manages your intuitive, emotional, and imaginative potential.
The result? You struggle to focus and memorize information. Your learning process is slowed. And possibly worst of all, these brain deficits can trigger more stress, anxiety, and mental disease—such as depression—which continues to increase in frequency.
