Using 10% of your brain???

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).


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% if we wanted. BUT we have specific patterns/habits/ rituals that we go through everyday that allows us to ‘save’ energy and not have to think as much.

Also we have a left and right sides- 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 exercises you can do to stimulate brain function and learning ability.
