Listening to Dr. Judson Brewer, author of The Craving Mind, yesterday was life changing. You can also look him up on TED.

He was talking about how our brains are “thinking machines” (an evolutionary survival strategy) always on autopilot, taking us hostage! Hmmm, we have a choice…🙃

Worry is a mask for fear and becomes a habit that results in anxiety. It is an evolutionary problem solving effort to predict the future. By detaching and mindfulness we can stop, observe our thoughts with compassion, and feel more calm.

Change your mind with your mind” (another great book on brain science).

It’s working – ahhhh 💓
