What is Nurture?

Nurture refers to the environmental influence on an individual's character. This includes the way they are treated by their parents and those around them (how much they are loved, taken care of, etc.) and the way they are taught to behave, as well as aspects of the physical environment around them.

The way in which a child is nurtured is believed to affect their future personality and behaviour. Psychologists use the term "tabula rasa", meaning blank slate, to describe this idea. A newborn child is yet unaffected by nurture, and therefore has no determined personality. The child's personality is shaped by all that it encounters. Every element of their nurture adds character to their "slate", and helps them to develop their own unique personality and behaviour.

On the other hand, nature refers to a person's predetermined genetic traits. Many believe that an individual's behaviour is based exclusively on their genes. There is a longstanding debate about what factors contribute to forming each human being's identity. Some argue that genes singlehandedly determine our identity, while others claim that our environment does so. Although psychologists regard some combination of these two factors (i.e. nature and nurture) as what shapes us, there is little consensus on the issue.

How can GBP help an individual be nurtured?

Every child is special in their own unique ways. Conventional teaching styles and methodologies en masse, do not work on all children. It is essential that we help children nurture their Whole Brain by making learning interesting and effective; for this, it is imperative to decode their learning styles, motivating factors, processing styles and their unique combination of intelligences. Every child has an inborn talent to excel in certain areas, and at the same time they struggle to cope with their weaker zones. Those areas must be identified and nurtured by activities and approaches that suit their profile. The positive results of such Nurturing are obvious when it is done below 12 years as neuroplasticity (the brain's ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life) is maximum during this period of life. MiDNA Certified Life Coaches help in Designing activities, considering various aspects like Learning styles, Learning domains, Processing styles, Adaptiveness and personality type of each child based on their Genetic Brain Profile - Comprehensive Report.

How does yoga help to nurture your brain?

Yoga practitioners showed more gray matter volume in their brains-which has been linked to better mental function, particularly during aging-and more cortical thickness, another plus when it comes to brain structure since it’s linked to higher intelligence. The preliminary studies which we reviewed demonstrates a positive effect of yoga practice on the hippocampus, amygdala, cingulate cortex, and prefrontal cortex. These are regions of the brain that are responsible for memory and information processing, as well as emotional regulation.
