Rewire Your Brain for Greater Happiness
July 12, 2012
Hosted by Dr. Susan Allison
How would you like to feel greater resilience and inner strength to cope with the roller coaster of life? Rick Hanson, co-author of Buddha’s Brain, the Practical Neuroscience of happiness, love & Wisdom, will tell us how. On today’s show, Rick will share ways to “stress-proof” our brains, by learning simple step-by-step exercises. He will also offer methods to help us feel less irritable, sad and defensive. Hanson will help us understand that although we were wired to overreact to threatening situations, we can now reverse the brain’s bias toward unhappiness and negativity, and become happier, more content, caring and creative. In terms of love and relationships Rick will share how we can develop more love, compassion and empathy in our hearts, “feed the wolf of love, and starve the wolf of hate.” During the show Hanson will talk about mindfulness and lead an exercise to help us become more centered and peaceful, even when stressed.
