Have you ever missed out on an opportunity, because you were afraid?
Fear is an insidious obstacle.
It used to keep us alive, back in the cave days. When large, predatory animals were roaming around our territory, a keen awareness saved lives.
Nowadays, there just aren’t as many real threats to our survival.
Inside your brain, however, you have the same fear circuit that your cave-dwelling ancestors had.
Instead of acting up when a tiger is nearby, your fear circuit responds to modern terrors like public-speaking, heights, being rejected, or failing a test.
The trigger is different, but the fear response is the same and your nonconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between something that is real or something that is being imagined.
Luckily, you’re the boss — not your brain.Read More >

How reliable are memories?
According to neuroscience, not so much.
When we store memories we often miss details, and when we recall memories, we distort them a little each time. Once a memory's in there, it becomes nearly impossible to distinguish between reality, and the bits our brain fabricated.
Multiple studies have even shown how simple it is to implant a “false memory” in someone’s head. It appears that the same brain regions light up whether you’re actually witnessing something, or you’re visualizing something in your mind’s eye. If you can remember seeing something, you believe it — even if you only “saw” it in your brain.
Why is this so interesting?Read More >

Extreme times, extreme measures...
Does that resonate with your weight loss journey at all?

Or eaten so many unseasoned chicken breasts, even the thought of that flavorless meat makes you gag a little?
Maybe you tried zumba, spin class, hot yoga, bootcamp…?

Have you ever dieted, lost weight, and then gained it all back?
