My guests are pioneers in retraining the inner mammal. I love learning from them! Listen in and subscribe so you can turn on your happy chemicals in healthy new ways.Your host, Loretta Breuning PhD, is founder of the Inner Mammal Institute and author of "Habits of a Happy Brain: Retrain your brain to boost your serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin and endorphin levels.” Details at: https://innermammalinstitute.orgLife is more peaceful and satisfying when you understand the brain we've inherited from earlier mammals. Your mammal brain controls the chemicals that make you feel good: dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and endorphin. These chemicals are released for reasons that don't make sense to our verbal human brain. When you know what these chemicals do in animals, your ups and downs make sense!Our happy chemicals evolved to reward survival behavior, not to make you feel good all the time. Each happy chemical has a special job. When it turns on, it paves neural pathways that turn it on more easily in the future. That's why we repeat behaviors that we'd rather do without. Fortunately, you can re-wire yourself to stimulate them in sustainable ways.But it's hard. It's like learning a foreign language: it takes a lot of repetition. Yet people do it every day. You can be one of them! You can design a new path to your happy chemicals and repeat it until it's strong enough to turn on easily. The Inner Mammal Institute shows you how.The Inner Mammal Institute has free resources to help you make peace with your inner mammal: videos, blogs, infographics, and podcasts. Dr. Breuning's books explain the big picture and help you plot your course step by step. No matter where you are right now, you can enjoy more happy chemicals in healthy ways.

Let's Keep Talking with Braxton Gilbert
Today I want to talk about why I am officially stopping watching pornography, and more broadly about any and all forms of easy-access dopamine and how it can reel havoc in your life when it comes to trying to stay disciplined, organized, and responsible. Dopamine is like an Easter egg. Running around, climbing up trees, looking in bushes are all difficult challenging things to do. They require effort. If you went out looking for candy filled / or money filled eggs, and you didn't find any, you would stop pretty quickly, and the game would be over. But if you found one after a little searching you would feel excitement to keep looking, and then finding another would still make you want to keep playing. Essentially, the eggs are a reward for playing the game, for participating in the hunt. They keep you engaged and interested in playing. This is how your brain works with dopamine. There are things that are beneficial for you to do, eating, sex, exercise, yoga, etc. So your brain hides a little candy filled egg on the other side of completing these tasks! You do the task you get the egg.With technological innovation, we have been able to find ways to get Easter eggs without any work at all.

Decode Your Burnout (formerly Optimize Your Life)
Welcome to Decode Your Burnout! In this episode, we're joined by Dan Lieberman, a distinguished psychologist and author, to explore the role of dopamine in our motivation and sense of reward, and how it impacts our well-being. Dopamine is often associated with pleasure and reward, but Lieberman debunks the common myths surrounding this neurotransmitter and explains how it can contribute to burnout. By understanding the role of dopamine in our brain's reward system, we can develop effective strategies to prevent burnout and improve our self-care routine. Our discussion covers a range of topics, including: - The difference between pain and suffering - The desire circuit versus the control circuit, and - The importance of mental time travel and dream incubation. Lieberman also provides insights on how to manage dopamine levels and come out of dopamine-induced burnout. Additionally, we explore the value of criticism and how we can reframe negative feedback to our advantage. By cultivating a growth mindset and learning from our mistakes, we can enhance our sense of reward and motivation.

Dr. Kevin Most of Northwestern Medicine drops by The Steve Cochran Show for his weekly roundup of medical news to help you live a happier, healthier life. This week, he talks about FDA finally approving the second omicron booster for people over the age of 65, early signs of Parkinson's, and Narcan vending machines becoming more common. Narcan vending machines – becoming more common 2,000 overdose deaths in Cook County in 2022, to put this in perspective there were 3,700 overdose deaths in Illinois, in all of 2021 Historically Narcan was used in Emergency Rooms for potential overdoses, in 2010 this drug was given to police officers to use as first responders Narcan is a nasal spray that can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose and save lives Narcan was made available without a prescription in 2021, you could buy from the pharmacist Narcan recently was approved for OTC status, meaning you would no longer need to talk to a pharmacist to purchase. Chicago recently placed a Narcan vending Machine on CTA Red Line Stop at 95th street This is not novel as Narcan is available in vending machines across the country including Las Vegas, New York, Detroit, West Virginia and many other sites Many college campuses have Narcan Vending machines on campus. The vast majority are free vend machines, requiring no money Included with the prescription is information on quitting and support groups The second Omicron Booster has finally been approved We discussed in the past how the UK and Canada had approved a second shot of the Omicron booster. This was based on the premise that the immunity wanes after 4-6 months since the last booster. Many received their first booster in the late fall and have been waiting for this recommendation FDA announced last Monday that a bivalent Omicron booster 2nd shot is now approved for those over the age of 65 and at least 4 months after your first booster It is also approved for immunocompromised 2 months after their initial bivalent booster FDA shows the immunity does wane, as shown by many studies, but this booster restores it The bivalent more accurate vaccine has now replaced the original vaccine For those who are completely unvaccinated a single shot of the Bivalent vaccine is now recommended, rater than the multiple doses of the original vaccine FDA will meet again in June to decide on next vaccine recommendations April is Parkinson's Awareness Month- New test for early diagnosis from Michael J Fox Foundation “Make the most of the advantage you get from being underestimated” This comment is from Michael J Fox, when asked about “his celebrity charity” Celebrities with Parkinson's Muhammad Ali Alan Alda Neil Diamond George Bush Rev Jesse Jackson Every 6 minutes a new patient will be diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease, 8.5 million people have Parkinson's First identified by Dr James Parkinson's in 1817- for years you were diagnosed by physical exam and then rated 1-5 We now have MRI tests that can support the diagnosis, but again the diagnosis is made after symptoms have started Parkinson's is a neuro degenerative disease that impacts a specific part of the brain Symptoms develop slowly over years and diagnosis is not made often until much later in the illness Common symptoms include tremor, slow movement, stiff limbs, gait and balance problems Unfortunately individuals with Parkinson's may also have depression, anxiety, sleep disorders and blood pressure issues We still do not know the cause, although there appears to be a genetic portion as well as some environmental causes We currently have no cure, but we have treatments including exercise, medications, brain stimulators Dopamine based drugs are the first line as individuals with PD have low levels of Dopamine, meds either increase dopamine or make it more efficient Unfortunately by the time individuals have motor symptoms, it is late in the disease and 60-80% of the specific neurons have been damaged. Big push now is to find a test that can identify this disease earlier, find it years before any symptoms and perhaps we can slow it. Last week, research out of the Michael J Fox Foundation have identified a protein in spinal fluid of people with PD as well as those with a high risk of developing PD This study showed the “Parkinson's Protein” ( alpha Syn -SAA) this is the first time they have identified this in a live PD patient. This abnormal protein was present in 93% of those tested who had PD, for reference point very few tests for neurologic illness are over 90% Also important was the False Positive rate was under 5%, meaning an individual who had a positive result in fact does not have the illness This test will identify patients well before they have any symptoms Knowing this is present, may lead to earlier diagnosis, it may also increase targeted treatment options, including more effective drugs Next steps are to see if this can lead to a less invasive way to test like a blood test or nasal swab As has been said before, you can build a high speed train but without tracks for it, you only have a high speed train, where is this headed next? The tracks are being laid Early signs of Parkinson's Tremor in finger, thumb or hand. This is often a tremor while at rest Small Handwriting, are the letters smaller, are the words crowded together Loss of smell Trouble sleeping- do you thrash around in bed Trouble walking- have you noticed your arms don't swing like they used to Stiffness or pain in the shoulder, hips Soft low voice, have people told you there has been a change in your voice Have you been told you have a serious or depressed look on your face even when not in a bad mood Dizziness or fainting- low blood pressure can be linked to Parkinson's Do your feet feel stuck to the floor, does the stiffness not resolve after moving.

Experts believe that there are two primary types of fat cells humans produce and store: brown fat and white fat. Brown fat has many more benefits and is the “healthy fat” that helps us regulate body temperature, burn more calories, and improve our metabolism whereas white fat is the fat most of us are trying to avoid gaining too much of. In this episode I cover: What is brown fat? Brown fat vs white fat The benefits of brown fat How to gain brown fat As always thank you for listening!

Today, let's discuss an issue that affects the entire planet, not just the entrepreneurial sector. The folks you are trying to help are actually being crushed by the subject that we'll be discussing today. I don't know if you're one of the many entrepreneurs who are being crushed by this epidemic, but you'll be able to tell in a moment. I know I have been one of them in the past, and I'm actively working to avoid becoming a victim of this dopamine addiction epidemic. In today's society, this is something that is quite obvious. “It's certainly something that has definitely contributed to a lot of my success where a lot of people are out there and they're just, do do do do do. It's like do this, do that, do this, do that. And they end up burned out stressed. Sometimes there's no success, sometimes they do have success.” Keynotes Do the activity that you're overthinking.

What's going on everybody, welcome back to another episode of The One Percent Podcast. Today I have Cameron Rosin who has accumulated over 500k followers on Instagram and TikTok. He has taken social media by storm with his philosophies, advice, and inspiration within his short clips. In this episode, we dive into being mindful of your thought patterns from the previous, present, and potential future. How we can put a hold on it so it doesn't affect us or others around us. This also ties into another big topic that is discussed in regard to monitoring self-talk and how we show up for ourselves, and to ourselves. Breaking the dichotomy of feeling confident when we may feel unconfident, and maneuvering through positive self-talk while acknowledging that the negative is still there. Monitoring our dopamine intake from social media and our phones to ensure we're productive in our everyday lives. Not allowing comparison or "hustle culture" to control our beings. Lastly, we dive into intention and how our intention can perpetually affect our attention being mindful of where our attention goes because our energy will flow in that direction. We uncover that and so much more, as always thank you guys for being here and showing love on every single episode. Hope you guys enjoy and as always, make sure you're growing today!!!

My guests are pioneers in retraining the inner mammal. I love learning from them! Listen in and subscribe so you can turn on your happy chemicals in healthy new ways.Your host, Loretta Breuning PhD, is founder of the Inner Mammal Institute and author of "Habits of a Happy Brain: Retrain your brain to boost your serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin and endorphin levels.” Details at: https://innermammalinstitute.orgLife is more peaceful and satisfying when you understand the brain we've inherited from earlier mammals. Your mammal brain controls the chemicals that make you feel good: dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and endorphin. These chemicals are released for reasons that don't make sense to our verbal human brain. When you know what these chemicals do in animals, your ups and downs make sense!Our happy chemicals evolved to reward survival behavior, not to make you feel good all the time. Each happy chemical has a special job. When it turns on, it paves neural pathways that turn it on more easily in the future. That's why we repeat behaviors that we'd rather do without. Fortunately, you can re-wire yourself to stimulate them in sustainable ways.But it's hard. It's like learning a foreign language: it takes a lot of repetition. Yet people do it every day. You can be one of them! You can design a new path to your happy chemicals and repeat it until it's strong enough to turn on easily.

SELDI Podcast with Tony Williams
Greetings, Leaders. Rejoice! Again, I say rejoice! This is a new season for our growth as leaders. Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Joy flows from our hearts and our thoughts. Your thought process affects your feelings, and feelings produce behaviors. "As a person thinks in their heart, so they are." Joy! This one emotion enormously impacts a person's ability to endure, gain new strength, and develop the power to overcome all life's challenges. "A joyful heart does good like a medicine." gives insight into the value of cultivating a joyful heart. Our heart condition is directly proportional to our effectiveness in leading ourselves and others. "How to Rediscover Joy at Work." is an excellent Harvard Business Review Webinar that shares critical insights for igniting your joy. Authenticity is one contributing factor to a joyful heart. "A joy that's shared is a joy made double." Proverb. Their sharing lifts everyone's mood, boosts their energy, and brings smiles to their faces! Neuroscience calls this the Dopamine effect, known as the feel-good neurotransmitter, a chemical that ferries information between neurons. The brain releases it when we experience joy. Sharing joy helps regulate movement, learning, and emotional responses to life's challenges. The connective power of joy is visible in sports. When a team performs at its best, overcoming its challenges, every player — indeed, the entire arena — experiences an overflow of joy that lifts the team even higher. Joy is a multiplier in our ability to endure and the strength to perform. Please try this exercise. Close your eyes and deeply breathe while smiling for sixty seconds. Think about what comes to your mind. A person, a scene, an image, or a word may come to you. What does it look like for you? I recall words highlighting the effects of joy "... for the joy set before him he endured," and "the joy of the LORD is your strength." "You will go out with joy and be led forth with peace." Gratitude can ignite our joy. Being grateful creates a mindset for resiliency, strength, and victory. Counting our blessings cultivates, stirs our emotions, and positions us to win the battles of life and career. "The king rejoices in Your strength. How great is his joy in the victories you give!" King David Everyone in every walk of life can be a force for good through their response of gratitude with joy! How can we cultivate the emotion of joy for life and career and experience endurance, strength, and victories? Start each day by writing down several things you are most grateful for in your life and career. Think about them for a few minutes. Let your mind replay them throughout the day and replenish your joy. Keep asking for joy, seeking it, knocking on the door, and you will find it! Research indicates that cultivating this habit of dispositional gratitude increases our state of joy over time. "A joyful life is made up of joyful moments gracefully strung together." Brene Brown Please remember to share your joy with others in your journey. Joy is contagious! We will reap what we sow and more than we sow. Count it all, joy! Victory!
Can a Christian be demon possessed? I walk through theology and experience on that matter. In this UU shotgun I also discuss tolerance, cell phone culture's effects on the brain, how the transgender movement is being challenged, Budweiser marketing ploys, and how Christian parents ought to evaluate movies for their kids. In the second half of the show I work through, at a 2K' macro level, what "in the world but not of" it means. To top off that theme I note three dominant positions the Church has taken vis-a-vis culture in the Modern era. Let's probe more deeply into our faith.

Pain sucks. Chronic pain sucks even more. And for many stroke survivors, this is now their life. Actress, artist, documentarian, and stroke survivor Maggie Whittum explored the world of chronic pain with us in episode 38 and with Barbie dolls filled with nails or covered in suffocating clay. Other survivors have talked about living with pain, even when there is nothing "wrong" with the limb. View this post on Instagram A post shared by Maggie Whittum (@maggiewhittum) //www.instagram.com/embed.js And once you've lived with pain for several months you don't become accustomed to it. In fact, the nervous system increases your response to pain. So what's going on here? The brain damage from stroke drives chronic pain in many survivors through a perfect storm of symptoms: Decrease in sensory filtering Increase in sensitivity Homuncular changes in the mind-body connection In this conversation, Physiotherapist and pain specialist Brendon Haslam joins us to talk about the nature of post stroke pain, how clinicians may treat it, why some medication work while others don't, and how, after stroke, we may no longer know just how big or small our hand is. If you don't see the audio player below, visit the original article page here. Click here for an AI-generated transcript Who is Brendon Haslam? Brendon is a physiotherapist and current PhD candidate with the University of Melbourne. Brendon has a particular interest in pain following stroke, and his PhD is focusing on identifying contributions to upper limb pain in stroke, and understanding possible neural networks involved in the pain experience. The aim of this research is to increase understanding of pain following stroke, and subsequently develop effective interventions to manage the significant problem of chronic pain in stroke. What is chronic pain? Once someone experiences a pain for 3 months, it's considered chronic pain. The nature of chronic pain after stroke goes deeper, though. For one thing, we normally think of pain as resulting from tissue damage or injury. While sometimes joint injury, shoulder subluxation, tendonitis, and other conditions may be a factor, they don't tell the whole story. For example, lightly touching an affected limb may be extremely painful. Applying the exact same stimulus to and unaffected limb and an affected limb may feel like nothing on one side and extremely painful on the other, even if there is no physical difference in the stimuli. A stroke affected limb may just hurt for no obvious reason. And that can be what the survivor just has to live with. Over the last 20-25 years, as Brendon explains, our understanding of pain has evolved quite a bit. We no longer think of it as coming from specific pain receptors. Rather, it a broader sense of safety or danger to the body. And the more someone lives with chronic pain, the more sensitive the nerves at the spine will become to those sensations. Rather than learning to ignore the pain, we can become even more sensitive to it. One of the biggest challenges with stroke recovery is how the brain sometimes loses the ability to inhibit or disregard signals and data. In the case of chronic pain, the brain fails to disregard those signals as the spinal cord in effect raises the volume. In the case of tone and spasticity, as we learned from Dr. Wayne Feng, the brain loses the ability to inhibit signals from the spine to the affected limbs that drive tone. For some survivors, like artist Seth Ian Shearer and NeuroNerd Joe Borges, the stroke reduced the ability of their brains to filter out or inhibit external sensory input. The go out and about with sunglasses and earphones to navigate the world. Stroke is as much about the brain no longer stopping things as it is about the brain no longer being able to do things. And chronic pain falls right into these challenges. The Study I wanted to speak with Brendon after reading a study published in the journal Brain Sciences called “My Hand Is Different”: Altered Body Perception in Stroke Survivors with Chronic Pain. It's a fascinating look at how stroke survivors with chronic pain develop a false image of the affected hand. Our results support the hypothesis that individuals with sub-acute and chronic stroke who experience chronic pain are more likely to report changes in body perception (as indicated by presence of alterations in perceived hand size) than those without pain. Further, the frequency of altered body perception of the hand, and strength of the association were greater when the region included the hand. We've talked about the homunculus in previous episodes, and you can read more about the idea of the homunculus in this Strokecast article. Basically, the homunculus is a representation of the amount of neuronal real estate taken up by different body parts based on how much we use them and how we use them. For example, the thumb will occupy more space in the brain that the elbow. After stroke, our homunculus can undergo changes based on the injury and our new use patterns for our body. And among those changes are how we feel pain. This study provides useful information in understanding that those changes take place. It reinforces the idea that pain is related to homuncular perceptions. And it further supports the perfect storm of chronic pain causes that we discussed in the episode. Hack of the Week Brendon's hack is to get into meaningful activities that bring you joy. Sort of like how Tawnie in the previous episode got into Mermaiding. There are lots of reasons to focus on activities like this -- whether that's volunteering in a community, playing a sport, creating art, developing a podcast or something else. Doing something deliberate and planning it gives us something to look forward to. Having a reason to get out of bed is super important, not only for stroke recovery, but for life in general. Making progress, striving, or even just doing something to improve your life and mood -- to bring joy is a powerful motivator to keep going. And for some folks, that means to just get to the next day. For other folks it's a way to change the world. Pursuing activities that bring genuine joy is a good thing in and of itself. But as Brendon points out, it has biological implications, too. It opens the proverbial "drug cabinet" in our brains to drive increased dopamine. This drives learning, which is the essence of stroke recovery -- teaching the brain to do the functions the dead brain cells used to do. Dopamine also drives the production of Gaba. And Gaba works to turn down the body's sensitivity to irrelevant information. Essentially, it helps the body inhibit some of the sensations that cause problems after stroke. Pursuing activities that drive joy addresses the challenges of stroke on multiple levels. Links Where do we go from here?

All human beings have an animal brain inside us, and those brains get wired by our experiences - good or bad. We're pre-programmed by how we're wired in childhood and puberty, and it can be really difficult to rewire them - whether we're trying to learn new habits or integrate past trauma. How do we retrain our brains the right way? Is the pursuit of constant joy a recipe for misery? In this episode, founder of the Inner Mammal Institute, Dr. Loretta Bruening shares how the brain works and how we can change the way we think and behave by tapping into our inner mammal. Your neurons are not connected when you're born, they connect from experience. -Dr. Loretta Bruening Three Things We Learned - You're not designed to always be in a state of pure joyAre human beings creating more misery by having unrealistic expectations about our emotions? - How to learn a new language as an adultCan we learn something from dog trainers? - The truth about our deeply-rooted behaviorsAre we pre-programmed with the survival instincts of your ancestors? Guest Bio Loretta G. Breuning, PhD, is the founder of the Inner Mammal Institute and Professor Emerita of Management at California State University, East Bay. She is the author of many personal development books, including Habits of a Happy Brain: Retrain Your Brain to Boost Your Serotonin, Dopamine, Oxytocin and Endorphin Levels. As a teacher and a parent, she was not convinced by prevailing theories of human motivation. Then she learned about the brain chemistry we share with earlier mammals and everything made sense. She began creating resources that have helped thousands of people make peace with their inner mammal. Dr. Breuning's work has been translated into twelve languages and is cited in major media. Before teaching, she worked for the United Nations in Africa. Loretta gives zoo tours on animal behavior, after serving as a Docent at the Oakland Zoo. She is a graduate of Cornell University and Tufts. The Inner Mammal Institute offers videos, podcasts, books, blogs, multimedia, a training program, and a free five-day happy-chemical jumpstart.

On this episode of the MalloryBros. podcast, the guys start with a conversation about manifestation and whether it's an empty saying or waste of time. They then debate whether somebody can or cannot love Unconditionally. This leads to Terrell's dissertation on Dopamine and the addiction that has been heightened by Social Media, and the guys speak to the effects. The guys then discuss the death of Rapper BTB Savage and speak to Vlad and the public's role, in adding fuel to the fire that would very quickly burn. Terrance speaks to the rising impact of Womens Basketball, and the guys give their thoughts on the Iowa/LSU game and all the controversy that came after it. They then speak to Quinta Brunsons Saturday Night Live Special and Terrance calls back to his point of view with Black People and changing how we "win". There's some Course of Action and More!
This week, Felix Salmon, Emily Peck, and Elizabeth Spiers are joined by Kevin Delaney, co-founder of Charter. They discuss the layoffs that have swept across multiple industries, and if letting workers go actually solve the issues CEOs say they are. They also take a look at how work has changed during the pandemic, digging into how middle managers have the worst jobs, and how having too many meetings sucks.
