#052 Meet Caroline Leaf
Caroline Leaf is a cognitive neuroscientist who has spent more than 30 years studying the brain. Her research has found that changing the way you think and changing the way you approach problems can physically alter your brain.
She’s the host of the popular podcast called Cleaning Up the Mental Mess. And she’s written several books on stress, happiness, and mind management.
Now, she has a new book called Cleaning Up Your Mental Mess, in which she outlines a 5-step process that can transform your brain. Her research has found that this method can reduce anxiety and depression by 81%.
Some of the things Dr. Leaf and I talk about:
“Our mind is how we think, feel and choose.”
“Everything you say and do isn’t just some random event. It actually comes from a thought that you have built into your brain.”
“Any kind of reaction that’s toxic creates a mess inside the brain.”
“We can manage our minds. Our minds are malleable. It’s a skill that we can actually learn. It’s not a therapy technique. It’s not a little magic trick. This is hardcore science.”
