EBD057 Bad Advice from Your Brain

Why do we find reasons to keep doing the same thing instead of making a change? Yep. Bad advice from your brain.

The safe, calm and happy storm continues on this week’s episode of Enlightened By Dogs! Kathy is loving the topic, and has decided to go deeper into the way we think about it and how badly we resist when we’re first exposed to new things!

Why do we automatically dismiss things that could be so helpful to us? Why do we find reasons to keep doing the same thing instead of making a change? She explores those questions and more as she unfolds the roles of the primitive mind, as well as the executive brain, and how they coexist to help us through the big decisions.

Tune in to find out why it’s important to both you and your dog to figure out how to make them feel safer, more calm, and happier…and how to stop taking bad advice from your brain!

In This Episode:

  • You are the observer and thinker of your thoughts.
  • What are your safe, calm and happy activities? Which are not?
  • What happens when your primitive brain takes over.
  • Which brain are you going to employ to change your life?
  • The lengths that Brilliant Partners go to make their dogs feel safe, calm and happy.
