The human brain is 2% of our total body mass but yet uses 500 calories per day to function. We have 86 billion neurons (nerve cells) in our brains.
I am very unsure where the statement, ‘ we use only 10% of our brain,’ comes from in the research literature. In fact we can use ALL 100% of our brain if we wanted. BUT we have specific patterns/habits/ rituals that we go through everyday that allows our brain to ‘save’ energy and not have to think as much.
Also we have a left and right sides of the brain- Left- logic, Right- more emotional type thoughts and functions.
As Bruce Lipton an accomplished neurobiologist and spiritualist says in his video below: ‘Change your patterns to keep your brain functioning at its best.’
He even talks of brain exercises you can do to stimulate brain function and learning ability.
