Relationships and the Brain

Can your brain determine how likely you are to be faithful in your relationships?

It turns out that there is a part of your brain called the Pre-Frontal Cortex (PFC) which acts as the supervising boss in your brain and
is responsible for making thoughtful and conscious decisions. What this means is that if you have low PFC activity you will be more likely
to act on your impulses and not really think about the consequences.BrainImage1

The good news is that the PFC can be balanced to help you make better decisions and think before you act. Having a balance PFC is key
for a healthy relationship not only because it will diminish the likelihood of being unfaithful but also prevent partners from saying things
they don’t mean or things that could lead to an unnecessary argument. A balanced PFC also contributes to paying more attention (listening),
improved concentration and planning skills. You can read more about the low PFC symptoms and the natural ways to optimize your PFC here.

The reality is that your brain is largely responsible for how you think, behave, experience life and interpret reality. A healthy brain can ultimately
mean better relationships, better health and a better life.

Do you believe that how is someone’s brain wired can determine how likely they will be faithful in a relationship? Do you think that changing your brain (natural ways) can improve the quality of your relationships and life overall?
