If you’ve ever wanted to change your state of consciousness and awareness, to live an ecstatic life, then do we have the Peak Brain show for you. Today I’ll be talking with Dr. Andrew Hill hold a pHD in Cognitive Neuroscience From UCLA, and continues to do research on attention and cognition. He’s also a leading peak performance coach. Dr. Andrew Hill’s specialty is helping people rewire their minds for more happiness, and brain power—think a more positive emotional state with greater focus, concentration and memory! And (Dad if you’re listening!) at any age! He call’s it ecstatic living or peak brain performance! So today we’ll talk about accessing this state, and how what he calls “shift happens”, or how you can literally change and rewire the mind, with tips you can begin today. Dr. Hill talks about how we’re constantly rewiring our minds, in all that we do. We can rewire to strengthen the mind, weaken the mind, to dwell on the negatives, or learn how to focus on the positives. In today’s show we look at ways to strengthen the mind for greater happiness and vitality; think more energy, more positive emotions, and greater motivation to get things done. And think more vibrancy in your life, from creativity, music, dance and more. Plus we talk about diets for the brain, how to sleep better, brain training you can begin today, and tips for kids too, especially those with ADHD.
