Our brain is a powerful thing. It is responsible for many tasks and is always finding ways to make our life easier. One way it does this is by neural chunking. Around 98% of our day is lived out of habit. We go on “auto pilot” a lot and our brain works as quick as it can to create habits, because the faster we can make something autonomous, the less our brain has to dedicate to that specific task. This allows us to free up space to do more “executive” functions. Here’s a simple exercise to explain how neural chunking works.
