How to Cope with Anxiety and Other Unpleasant Feelings with Dr. Joan Rosenberg

All this week we are sharing special episodes (some old, some new) to help our community navigate these challenging times.Today's episode is a modified version of a past episode with Dr. Joan Rosenberg on the topic of how to cope with anxiety and other unpleasant feelings.Here are the original show notes from the episode:What often blocks most people from success and feeling capable in life is the ability to experience, move through, and handle unpleasant feelings, such as sadness, shame, helplessness, anger, embarrassment, disappointment, frustration, and vulnerability.Knowing how to deal with intense, overwhelming, or uncomfortable feelings is essential to building confidence, emotional strength, and resilience. Yet when we distract or disconnect from these feelings, we move away from confidence, health, and our desired pursuits, ultimately undermining our ability to fully realize our ambitions.On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru, talks to Dr. Joan Rosenberg, a psycho...

#98: A Radical New Way to Treat All Chronic Autoimmune Conditions with Dr. Terry Wahls

ELike many physicians, Dr. Terry Wahls focused on treating her patients’ ailments with drugs or surgical procedures—until she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2000. Within three years, her back and stomach muscles had weakened to the point where she needed a reclined wheelchair. Conventional medical treatments were failing her, and she feared that she would be bedridden for the rest of her life.Dr. Wahls began studying the latest research on autoimmune disease and brain biology and decided to get her vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and essential fatty acids from the food she ate rather than pills and supplements. To do this, she adopted the nutrient-rich Paleo diet, gradually refining and integrating it into a regimen of neuromuscular stimulation. First, she walked slowly, then steadily, and then she biked eighteen miles in a single day. In November 2011, Dr. Wahls shared her remarkable recovery in a TEDx talk that immediately went viral.On today’s Broken Brain Podc...

5 Critical Life Questions to Ask During Self-Quarantine

Welcome to Big Idea Tuesday!On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru Purohit talks about why it’s a great time to slow down and reflect and five critical life questions to ask during self-quarantine.Are you constantly worrying about letting others down?Is it extremely hard for you to speak up about what you want and don’t want?Do you feel guilty pursuing your goals and dreams?Do you please others to avoid short-term pain, but underestimate the pain of living a life of regret?Does the critical inner voice in your head prevent you from even starting?At some point in your life, you come to a crossroads where you have to ask yourself, "Whose life am I living?"Am I living a life true to me? Or am I suppressing my goals and dreams to appease my parents, my boss, society, or some authority figure?Living a life true to you is scary. It usually requires you to set boundaries and remind those around you that your life is your own to live.Easier said than done, of course. Setting bou...

#97: Heal Your Mind, Strengthen Your Body, and Live a Genius Life with Max Lugavere

The human body was formed and refined under conditions that no longer exist. The modern world has changed dramatically since our days as hunter-gatherers, and it has caused widespread anxiety, stress, and disease, leaving our brains in despair. But science proves that the body and brain can be healed with lifestyle protocols that help us regain our cognitive birthright.On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru, talks to Max Lugavere, a filmmaker, health and science journalist, and the author of the New York Times bestselling book Genius Foods: Become Smarter, Happier, and More Productive While Protecting Your Brain for Life.

The Power of Quitting and Letting Go

Welcome to Big Idea Tuesday!On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru Purohit talks about the power of quitting and letting go.When’s the right time to let go of something? A relationship, a project, an investment?Seasoned investors have this great question for determining whether or not they should hold onto an investment. The question goes a little something like this: “If I wasn’t already invested in this business, would I invest in it today, knowing what I know?” Feel free to replace business with relationship, project or friendship.The beauty of this question is that it cuts through the rationalization tactics that our mind uses to deal with our fear of loss. Sometimes we’re so scared of losing something, or admitting that it isn’t working, that it’s easier to pretend that it isn’t an issue than it is to deal with it.The challenge with pretending is that it just prolongs the inevitable pain and, more importantly, makes it harder to genuinely turn things around.Wh...

#96: Why Women Are Twice As Likely to Develop Alzheimer’s and What They Can Do About It with Dr. Lisa Mosconi

EAlzheimer’s is not a disease of old age. We tend to associate it with the elderly because that’s when the clinical symptoms become manifest, but in reality, Alzheimer’s begins with negative changes in the brain at least a decade prior. More often than not, in middle age.Two out of every three Alzheimer’s patients are women. Today, Alzheimer’s is as real a threat to women's health as breast cancer is. A 45-year-old woman has a one in five chance of developing Alzheimer’s during her remaining life, while a man of the same age only has a one in ten chance. What happens to women and not to men, in midlife, that could potentially trigger an Alzheimer’s predisposition, and that could potentially initiate Alzheimer’s?On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru, talks to Dr. Lisa Mosconi, the director of the Women's Brain Initiative and associate director of the Alzheimer's Prevention Clinic at Weill Cornell Medical College, where she serves as an associate professor of neurosc...

How to Stop Overthinking and Step Into Your Purpose

Welcome to Big Idea Tuesday!On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, our host, Dhru Purohit talks about how to stop holding back and step into your purpose.From the beginning of time people have questioned their place on the planet. Our ancestors stared up at the same stars, and asked themselves the same questions we ask ourselves today.Do I matter? Why am I here? Will my life leave a mark? What’s my purpose?These are important questions, but their answers can’t be rushed. Because the answers are layers deep, we need to go through life lessons and experiences for them to show up. Those experiences take time.If we put too much pressure on these questions we’ll drive ourselves into feeling stuck. We’ll hold off building new things and taking new risks. All because we’re waiting to “understand” ourselves before we start. All because we feel we need to know our purpose before we give life our all.There have been so many times that our lives have been touched by the work of others. And y...
