Re-Train the Negative Brain By Dr. Randy Borum Article first appears in Black Belt Magazine, January, 2008, pp. 48-50)
What generates the strongest feelings for you – the thrill of victory or the agony of defeat? According to brain scientists, the human brain is essentially "hard wired" to be negative. Numerous studies have shown that the electrical (neural) connections in your brain are stronger and faster when they are responding to something unpleasant than when responding to something neutral or pleasant.
Might this provide a scientific explanation for why "an idle mind is the devil's workshop"? And why does the brain behave like that? And can we do anything about it? All very reasonable questions. Science provides some insights and possibilities. 

You can read the entire article HERE, if you're interested.

In the past ten years of training I have watched class sizes consistently drop in November and December and pick back up a couple weeks after New Years. This is a great article to put things into perspective going into the stress of the holidays. I posted it on my forum as well. Thanks for sharing.
