The Brain Chemicals of Positivity

Joining me on the next episode of the Braveheart Podcast is Dr. Loretta Breuning. The author of Habits of a Happy Brain and The Science of Positivity.

She is also the Founder of the Inner Mammal Institute and Professor Emerita of Management at California State University, East Bay.

Join me on this spectacular episode of the #Perspectives podcast with Dr. Loretta Breuning as we sit down for a conversation about what’s going on chemically inside of us and how you have to commit to creating happiness for yourself irrespective of your surroundings.

Together we unpack...

- Creating your own happiness whether or not the rest of the herd chooses happiness.

- How dopamine is about getting needs met and the attachment theory.

- Awareness and observations around endorphins and our experiences

In the podcast we explore together:

12:25 How you have to commit to creating happiness for yourself?

14:58 Why do we want dopamine and how it works for us?

19:07 How do extrinsic and intrinsic rewards work for us?

25:13 The theory of cynicism

28:14 Our oxytocin is wired by our own past experiences

40:40 What are the ways of getting serotonin?

1:01:33 How we get to self-regulation could be harmful or helpful?

1:17:35 Where there is rigidity, there is dysfunction because there is a lack of adaptability
