Episode 27: Meet Your Brains

January 19, 2019

Jessica Croker

I have found it so incredibly helpful to understand the distinction between my lower, animal brain and my higher creative, conscious brain.  For example,when I'm craving chocolate I know that my lower brain is just seeking a dopamine response.  Even though I really feel like I NEED that chocolate or the world will end, I know it's just my lower brain trying to drive the show.  We'll talk about 5 of our neurotransmitters, what they do for us, and how to trigger them in healthy ways.

This week's resource:  Habits of a Happy Brain by Loretta Graziano Breuning, PhD

This week's self-care tip:  Trigger your happy brain chemicals by getting a massage, full-on belly laughing, and realizing that stress is not a problem.
