3 BRAIN HACKS to Control Your Thoughts & Emotions

Develop the skills to Master your mind & emotions

Lewis engages in a discussion with three notable guests: Andrew Huberman, a neuroscientist from Stanford University, Dr. Susan David, an award-winning Harvard medical school psychologist, and Rainn Wilson, who shares personal insights on healing from early childhood trauma. The episode delves into understanding the human mind and unlocking its power, particularly during stressful situations.

Andrew Huberman is a neuroscientist at Stanford University. He also runs the Huberman Lab, which studies how the brain functions, how it changes through experiences, and how to repair the brain after injury or disease. Andrew and I dive deeper into understanding the amazing human mind. We talk about how to unlock its power — particularly during really stressful situations.

Dr. Susan David is one of the world’s leading management thinkers and an award-winning Harvard medical school psychologist. She’s the author of the bestselling book, Emotional Agility, which describes the psychological skills critical to thriving in times of complexity and change.

Rainn Wilson shares how he healed from early childhood trauma and shares his insights on how self-awareness and the ability to manage emotions can lead to better decision-making and stronger relationships. We explore practical strategies for understanding and regulating one’s emotions, emphasizing the importance of mindfulness and self-reflection. Buy Rainn’s book, Soul Boom.
