Change your brain April 24, 2023

This was an interview on a podcast I watched recently. I think it needs to be re-watched to get the most out of it, maybe even more than once or twice, and I’m planning on it.

I’ve also downloaded the doctor’s book.It looks like it will be a helpful tool in learning how to have a healthy brain.

First the book.

Change Your Brain Every Day: Simple Daily Practices to Strengthen Your Mind, Memory, Moods, Focus, Energy, Habits, and Relationships 

366 Days to a Better Brain, Mind, and Life!

In Change Your Brain Every Day psychiatrist and clinical neuroscientist Daniel Amen, MD, draws on over 40 years’ clinical practice with tens of thousands of patients to give you the most effective daily habits he has seen that can help you improve your brain, master your mind, boost your memory, and make you feel happier, healthier, and more connected to those you love.

Incorporating Dr. Amen’s tiny habits and practices over the course of a year will help you:

  • Manage your mind to support your happiness, inner peace, and success
  • Develop lifelong strategies for dealing with whatever stresses come your way
  • Create an ongoing sense of purpose in a way that informs your daily actions
  • Learn major life lessons Dr. Amen has gleaned from studying hundreds of thousands of brain scans

Imagine what you could learn by spending every day for a year on a psychiatrist’s couch. In the pages of Change Your Brain Every Day, you’ll get a year’s worth of life-changing daily wisdom from Dr. Amen, one of the world’s most prominent psychiatrists.

Today is the day to start changing the trajectory of your life, one tiny step at a time.


I’m going to start a journal, taking notes and keeping track of my thoughts as I work my way through the steps listed for us.

And now the video


Who knew:

An unexpected side effect of reading this book and doing the steps is the emergence of a progress report on how far I/ we’ve already come in relation to our brain and thought life. It’s encouraging actually, to think we aren’t just spinning our wheels here.

Maybe our focus wasn’t on the brain but somewhere else and yet it was still affected by whatever we were doing. I find that encouraging too. Good or bad, our body and mind is a package deal. In this day and age of compartmentalization we tend to forget that important point.
