A few years back I read a book on neuroplasticity. It was a great read, although possibly aimed slightly above my knowledge on the subject (zero). From memory, this was what I took away:

• you can change the way you think. It takes a lot of effort, time, and motivation - but it’s within reach. Small improvements lead to bigger ones over time.

• diet, excersize and good sleep are all involved. You can’t eat junk food, sleep poorly, and expect to see much of a difference.

• making good decisions is a large part of the process. Eat well. Sleep well. Put yourself in the right situations. Don’t put yourself in the wrong ones. If you’re afraid of speaking in public, speak in public. If you need to be more organised, buy a planner (app?) that will help you with your organisation. Etc

To me, a lot of it seemed to be grounded in common sense. Seems to be well regarded/reviewed too, for anyone interested: https://www.amazon.com/Rewire-Your-Brain-Think-Better/dp/047...
