221: How to Train Your Thoughts & Tame the Hidden Dragons with Dr. Daniel Amen
Can you train your thoughts for a positive mind? Your brain is always eavesdropping on your self-talk. And “now more than ever,” according to today’s incredible guest, Dr. Daniel Amen, “we need a manual for our mind.” The incidents of depression have increased more than 3 times since the start of the pandemic, while self-harming behaviors among teenagers have quadrupled. Dr. Amen is here to discuss the mental health crisis and shed some light on the power of your thoughts. He is a 12-time New York Times bestselling author, psychiatrist, neuroscientist, brain imaging expert, and the founder of Amen Clinics. In this episode, Daniel teaches us that thoughts come from chemical reactions, the food you eat, memories you focus on, and what happened to your ancestors written in your genetic code. Listen as he shares the power of training your thoughts with “positivity bias training” and discusses his phenomenal new book, Your Brain is Always Listening: Tame the Hidden Dragons that Control Your Happiness, Habits, and Hang-Ups. *** Do you want to stay up to date with every new episode and get my brand new Kwik Brain Accelerator Program?
