Well, yes. Anything we do rewires the brain, but the real question is: is it rewiring it in a way we want it? Because remember, neuroplasticity and rewiring and reshaping and remapping of our brain networks and our body neurological networks can happen in ways we don’t like. We can rewire ourselves to become more anxious or more depressed, or more stuck or to be in more pain.
So exercise can rewire our body and brain for the better or for the worse. I think it’s not about whether or not exercise is rewiring our brains. It’s about things like:
- Is this helpful for me?
- Is this workable for me?
- What is my intention?
- What is my emotional state?
And to get really clear physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually on which neural networks we want to build and support, and how you’re going to do that. That is the basis of the Rock Steady program for healing using neuroplasticity and a holistic intentional approach.
