53: Why Mindfulness is NOT Enough with Dr. Caroline Leaf


Very special episode with Dr. Caroline Leaf.  Since the early 1980s she has researched the mind-brain connection, the nature of mental health, and the formation of memory. She was one of the first in her field to study how the brain can change (neuroplasticity) with directed mind input. Dr. Leaf is also the bestselling author of Switch on Your Brain, Think Learn Succeed, Think and Eat Yourself Smart, and many more. She also has a podcast with over 7 million downloads called Cleaning Up the Mental Mess. 

She’s been featured in Forbes, TED, INC. The Oprah Magazine, GLAMOUR and BUSTLE. 

We chat about the Neuroscience behind thoughts and what effect they have on the physical world, cleaning up brain fog, and practical advice on how to close the gap between knowledge and application. You may need a notepad to take notes on this one.
