EP 151 - The Source: Secrets of the Universe, Science of the Brain
As we become more connected digitally, we’re less connected emotionally and socially.

We’re constantly switched on and inundated with information, which elevates our stress levels. That can leave people feeling defeated. Without mastering your emotions, connecting to your body and your intuition, and staying motivated, you will start to feel like a victim of your own life rather than having agency over it. 

Dr. Tara Swart discusses her book, which touches on the six languages your brain uses to create resilience and the four-step process for rewiring your brain to become more resilient. Through focused attention, action boards, deliberate practice and accountability, individuals can create a more agile brain with leads to the manifestation of their goals. 

Listen as Dr. Swart joins Dr. Taz to discuss resilience and brain health.
