Can You Trust Your Memory?

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? (more…)

Anxiety affects approximately 40 million Americans. For some, anxiety causes some slight discomfort and distress.

If you or a loved one has ever dealt with the irritating, often incapacitating, effects of anxiety; take heart.

Why “Dieting” Makes You Fat (According to Neuroscience)

Have you gone sugar free, meat free, fat free, juice cleanses (food free??) … Or eaten so many unseasoned chicken breasts, even the thought of that flavorless meat makes you gag a little?

How To Make a Healthy Meal
(No Matter What You Eat)

    Have you ever dieted, lost weight, and then gained it all back? (Going off of statistics, I’m guessing the answer’s “yes”) The diet scene is a little controversial. With thousands of diets to choose from, it’s tough to know what’s “healthy.” For making the best choice,  we say the right diet begins with having the right mindset. When you're thinking about your body, and food in positive way, it's easier to know what to eat. When your food mindset is all about health (rather than looking good, or fitting in), you're much more likely to lose weight. When you make a meal, think about how your food will affect your body. Appreciate your body for everything it lets you do, and understand that what you put in is tied to what you get out. If you build your meals according to these 4 steps, you’ll feel happy, healthy, and as a result: lighter on the scale! (more…)

11 Wildly Successful Entrepreneurs Who Failed First

(And How You Can Learn From Them)

The word “failure” just sounds bad, right? Failing a test, or a class, or a failed marriage… That blows. What about a failed business? (Probably not much fun either.) Here’s the good news: “failures” are great opportunities to learn. No matter what you try, your chances of getting it right the first time are slim. Think about a sport or game you play. If you play against great players, you’ll lose a lot at first. If you keep playing with them, you’ll improve to their level. Leveling up is almost always uncomfortable, and necessary.

[Article] Setting Goals with the S + T + T Process

It is wonderful to have goals and dreams, which we all do, but without a plan of action, 98% of us will have just that: goals and dreams, rather than accomplishments.

I want to share a very important process that helped me to achieve my own ambitions, called the S+T+T process. (more…)

Can You Commit to Having It All?

Lewis Carroll says, “any road will get you there, if you don’t know where you are going.”

Research conducted by Dr. Gail Matthews of the Dominican University of California [1]shows that people who wrote down their goals, shared this information with a friend, and sent weekly updates to that friend were on average 33% more successful in accomplishing their stated goals than those who merely formulated goals.

The Audacious Power of Following Your Dreams.

You know in your heart what it is: that dream you cherished and nurtured as a child. Were you going to be a star quarterback, a news anchor, an astronaut?

I've kept the embers of a quiet but steady flame for the writer's life burning in my belly for decades. I knew I was born to write ever since I first wrote my name. Sure, the 'J' was backwards--but I saw that letters and words had meaning and the power to move the tides of the human heart, and I was smitten. (more…)

Neurons That Fire Together, Wire Together: The New Science of Neuroplasticity

Throughout your life, as you grow and learn, the neural circuits (“wiring”) in your brain change and adapt to novelty and variation in your environment, relationships and experiences. Scientists refer to the ability of the human brain to alter itself in response to a person’s needs, as they evolve over time, as Neuroplasticity. “Neuro” means “related to the brain,” and “plasticity” means “adaptability” or “flexibility.” What does this mean for you?

Geologically speaking, humans have moved from flinging poop at each other through the treetops to flinging scientific instruments through (and beyond) the solar system, in the blink of an eye.

There was a time when our gravest concerns were biological; our main concern was to find food, stay warm, and compete for social status and that special gentleman or lady.

Cut Out Your Inner Critic in 3 Easy Steps!

You know the critics that reside, rent-free, in your head? Sure, you do! They probably have a few different voices--your mother-in-law, the mutant 6th-grader who bullied you when you were in 4th grade, a snarky neighbor or co-worker, your ex-wife or anybody else who ever uttered words of disapproval that got seriously stuck under your skin. These are the voices murmuring things like:
  • “You’re not good enough.”
  • “You’re not smart enough.”
  • “You’re not skinny enough.
  • “You don’t deserve any success in life!”

Is the glass half empty or half full?

Many people will answer this question without really thinking about it, so let me help. The answer depends on which of your 5 senses and intellectual functions your are using. Allow me to explain: Water (H2O) is made up of 2 molecules of Hydrogen, and one molecule of Oxygen, right? Air is made up of Nitrogen (78.09%), Oxygen (20.95%) Argon (0.93%), Carbon Dioxide (0.039%) and other trace gases (0.003%). So what does this really mean? It means that the glass is made up of 50% Water and 50% Air--and is 100% FULL, all at the same time! (more…)

Detox Your Life by Ditching these 2 Personality Types

There are four main principles considered by aeronautical engineers when designing an aircraft: lift, thrust, weight, and drag. Life, and the other people we get to know along the way, is a lot like that: some people lift us up and inspire us; some people motivate and push us to be our best; some of them are like a lead weight around your neck, discouraging you and pulling you down with more and more demands; and some people are just plain drags--negative, never happy, always with some sad story, expecting you to solve their problems.

Juice Up Your Motivation-and-Reward Circuits for Life’s Sweetest Reward

Novelty and Pleasure are the Keys to Motivation

What motivates any mammalian brain to take action? Novelty! Anything new in the environment that is not perceived as a threat will stimulate the pleasure centers of the brain, releasing dopamine and increasing your conscious desire to achieve more goals. If you want to increase your motivation, make a list of all the activities that have recently given you pleasure – even the tiniest ones – and make sure you do at least one of them each hour as you focus on achieving a specific goal.

Made an Oopsie? 5 Quick-Comeback Upcycles for Regrettable Behavior

The Neuroscience of Rejection You can trust somebody for years, but the moment they exclude you or ignore you, or express any form of negativity toward you, the social awareness circuits in your limbic brain (midbrain, cingulate cortex, and insula) are triggered. When people are placed in brain scanners, we see that even a momentary hurt can permanently undermine trust. If you want to be a leader - at work or at home - you have to become exquisitely sensitive to these neurological trust mechanisms. This means that you have to re-frame any anger or disappointment in a way that will be perceived by the listener as kind, compassionate, and caring.  (more…)

Get Spicy: 15 Natural Prescriptions for Health

Maintaining your health and optimum weight is a life-long project--one that is easier for some of us than others.  If you're not using the right herbs and spices in your fight against fat or physical pain, you are missing out!  Too often, they are relegated to attractively-labeled but rarely-used bottles on dusty spice racks. That's a serious bummer, because using the right blend of these taste enhancers produces delicious, low-calorie dishes that will make it easier to stick with your new weight-loss-friendly eating habits.

Even better, many herbs and spices contain antioxidants, minerals, vitamins and unique medicinal properties.  So if you're trying to lose a few (or more) pounds, consider adding high-quality supplements of some of the following to your diet, and being very generous when adding them to your food.

The Blueprint for Building A Fearless You

The longer you ruminate on imaginary fears, the more your brain believes they are true. You’ll feel more anxiety, which then convinces your creative mind that your fears have greater validity. If your brain thinks the fear is real, it takes immediate action to get you out of harm's way. So the next time you catch yourself worrying, just look around you. Is there a real threat in your environment?  If not, just smile at that illusory memory and push it away with a warm compassionate hug! After all, most of your worries are based on memories you've pulled up from the past and projected on the future. It's not based on who you are, what your skills are, or what you are capable of. Nor is it based on what is happening in the present moment. So why do you give those worries so much power? (more…)

Here's something that you've probably never even thought about, yet it has a massive effect on your physiology, both health and body composition--the LENGTH OF THE DAY. What do I mean by that? Every day the sun rises and falls, and the length of the day is controlled by these external events.  When the sun rises, it's light outside, and this signals our brain that it's daytime. When the sun sets, there's no more light, and the darkness signals to our brain that it's nighttime. Right? (more…)

Not Your Mom’s Success Story: How to Write Your Own

Anyone who has experienced the miracles and mishaps of child-rearing will be aware that each baby to arrive on planet Earth does so with their own little personality quite intact, obvious in character and uniquely set apart from his or her siblings, right from the start.  From what I have read about in the science of personality, nothing is locked in from the start, but there are trends, and trends become habits, which become characteristics. It is important to teach a child to trust in that which they know to be true, of themselves.  Children aren't born to carry on anybody else's legacy, or finish what mom or dad could or would not; they are here to carve their own path, to make their own way.  And, surprisingly often, if not always, they have pretty strong ideas of just how they want to do that, right from the get-go.  (more…)

Record Your Wins, Delete the Fails

We’ve all been given evaluation forms after attending a class, workshop, or seminars, but did you know that the human brain appears to be programmed to first look at the negative experiences from any interaction that just took place? And yet, many brain-scan studies show that when you reflect on what you didn't get from a program or discussion with another colleague (or when you ruminate on what you wished you would have gotten from the program or discussion), it literally wipes out all the insights and benefits that actually occurred.

Can Being Bored Make You Fat?

Hey friends!
I had a fascinating conversation with a flight attendant on a trip I went on a few weeks ago, and I thought I'd tell you about it. I think you might get some 'AHA!' moments from reading this... The flight attendant sometimes works on flights where people have to pay to purchase soda (but water is free) and sometimes works on flights where people can get both soda and water for free. So I asked her if she noticed any difference in frequency of ordering soda when they charge a dollar for it, versus it being free. She replied "Oh yeah.... huge difference! When we charge for it, very few people get it and the majority drink water. When it's free, most people order soda." So why is this significant? (more…)

Can You Really ‘Manifest’ Abundance?

The universe is full of wonder.  There are quasars and iPhones and Elon Musk; with all of that going on, who says there isn't enough for you to get your slice? Of course, the size of your slice of the pie may initially have a lot to do with blind luck--but a lot of lucky winning babies in the game of "Hooray, I got awesome, educated, rich parents!" still manage to fritter away their share, while many not-so-lucky babies grow up and refuse to make excuses. A grown-up is a person who is accountable to themselves, for themselves (and, usually, others).  People manifest abundance when they build up their knowledge and skills and maintain an attitude that is expectant of good fortune--and when the right opportunity arrives, they are ready.  Whatever your score on the luck-o-meter was at birth, there's plenty you can do today and moving forward to encourage blessings and abundance to flow forth from the universe, straight into your wallet--ahem, heart. Okay, both. (more…)

Crystallized intelligence helps us answer those general knowledge questions on game shows, for instance, or remember how to drive whenever we get into a car.

This 4th of July, why not declare your own independence from the junk and processed foods that are preventing you from achieving your health and fitness goals? Believe it or not, once upon a time, sugar was billed as a low-calorie "diet aid" that prevented people from consuming more fat. More recent research has suggested that all but a few types of fats are important nutrients that are vitals to brain and tissue health and proper functioning. The real culprits in the obesity epidemic, as it turns out, are sugars and other simple carbohydrates that are the result of excess processing. Why going through tons of extra convolutions in a factory makes food cheaper we will never know, but there is no question of the value of whole, unprocessed foods if you are trying to lose weight.
