Unlearn

Learning is the process of acquiring new information or skills. When you learn something new, your brain strengthens the pathways between neurons to store that information. The more you practice or repeat something, the stronger those connections become. Unlearning is about letting go of existing knowledge or behaviors. It is about weakening or dismantling those established connections in your brain.

Attitude has the following components: Thoughts (cognition): The belief system you hold about the object of your attitude.

Internal migration, movement within a country, is more common type of migration globally. People migrate for a complex mix of reasons, a combination of pushing factors and pulling factors. Push factors make people feel forced to leave their homes. These can include: Economic hardship : Lack of jobs, low wages, or natural disasters that destroy livelihoods can drive people to seek opportunity elsewhere.

Environmental factors : Droughts, floods, and other climate change effects can threaten people's access to food, water, and safety. Pull factors are the things that attract people to a new location.
