Does stress consume your life?
Are you constantly thinking about what could go wrong? Are you unable to enjoy moments of peace, happiness, or fun because your mind only focuses on the negative?
In these unprecedented times, it’s easier than ever to let stress consume us. Whether it’s stress about politics, COVID-19, or just daily life, it has the ability to rob us of joy and make us victims of our own lives. The mind is powerful, and when we get stuck in negative thought loops and patterns, it can not only impact our mental health but our physical health as well.
Thankfully, there are some simple ways we can begin to relieve stress every day! Calming breathing techniques, yoga, and mediation are just a few examples that can reduce negative stress. And when we understand what stress truly is, we can learn how to control it and use it to our advantage.
Today on The School of Greatness, I’m bringing back an expert to share his wisdom about the science behind stress, how we can release negative stress, and unlock the power of our minds! I’m happy to reintroduce Dr. Andrew Huberman back on the show!
Andrew Huberman is a neuroscientist at Stanford University who 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. In his career, Andrew has made many important contributions to the fields of brain development, brain plasticity, and neural regeneration, and repair.
He’s received numerous awards and recognitions for his research and publications, including the McKnight Foundation Neuroscience Scholar Award, the Biomedical Scholar Award from the Pew Charitable Trusts, and the Cogan Award for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology.
In addition to being a tenured professor of neurobiology and ophthalmology at Stanford University, Dr. Andrew is a brilliant neuroscientist and teacher — he excellently explains complicated concepts in a way that everyday people can understand them and use neuroscience to improve their lives!
Andrew’s goal is to understand how the brain allows us to sense, evaluate, and respond to the world around us. He’s actively working on methods to re-wire and repair eye-to-brain connections for people who suffer from blinding diseases, as well as investigating emotions and how they drive human behavior.
Dr. Andrew is clearly an expert on how the human brain works — I can’t wait for him to share his wisdom with you today!
