    Mirror Neuron and Your Happy Chemicals

    in Social Sciences

    Your mirror neurons activate when you see someone else enjoy a reward or risk harm; thus, your happy circuits are influenced by those around you, and your happy circuits were shaped by those you mirrored in youth.
    This podcast is a live call-in with Loretta Breuning, PhD, author of Habits of a Happy Brain: Retrain your brain to boost your serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin and endorphin levels. Questions? InnerMammalInstitute.org/podcast.
    Happiness is caused by four special brain chemicals: dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and endorphin. When you know how they work in animals, you can find your power over them in daily life. The happy chemicals are not designed to flow all the time for no reason. They evolved to reward behaviors that promote survival in the state of nature. They are only released in short spurts, so you always have to do more to get more. This makes life frustrating!
    Our chemicals are controlled by neural pathways built from life experience. Neurons connect when your happy chemicals flow, which wires you to repeat behaviors that felt good before. Fortunately, you can re-wire yourself, but it’s not easy. That’s why we keep discussing and asking questions.
    The Inner Mammal Institute has resources that help you make peace with your inner mammal: books, videos, blogs, graphics, and podcasts. You’ll find out what turns on your happy chemicals in the state of nature, and how you can turn them on today. It’s not easy being mammal! But you can build your power over your mammalian brain chemicals.

    In commemoration of Save the Redwoods League’s 100th anniversary, Heyday is proud to present the book The Once and Future Forest: California’s Iconic Redwoods, that showcases both the grandeur of the redwood ecosystems that sustain California and the deep love they have engendered in scientists, writers, artists, and the general public. Sam Hodder, President and CEO of the Save the Redwoods League, joins Big Blend Radio's Nature Connection show, to share some of the history of the Save The Redwoods League and to discuss this beautiful book, of which he wrote the introduction. Over the last century, the League has protected more than 200,000 acres of redwood forests and helped 66 redwood parks and reserves. The organization has pioneered innovative, science-based forest-restoration work, and most importantly, has touched the lives of millions of people by connecting them to these towering wonders of nature. Featured music is ‘Loving the Land’ by singer-songwriter Wally Lawder. This episode was sponsored by nature photographer Margot Carrera.

Use Effective Communication verses Confrontation to Get Your wants and Needs Met Nobody likes to confront others when their feelings are hurt or they are misunderstood. However, if not taken care of it can burst out and appear as if you are angry. Todays show is about learning to use effective communication to get your needs and wants met.. The following effective communication skills was taken from https://www.diplateevo.com/effective-communication-healthy-confrontation/ Healthy confrontation doesn't attack people personally – Healthy confrontation seeks only to share how a specific act or words made you feel. It isn't riddled with name-calling, labeling, insulting, or other emotionally-driven attacks. If someone has a problem, healthy confrontation doesn't mean talking badly about someone to other people. Healthy confrontation is actively communicated, not passively hidden – Healthy confrontation doesn't hide feelings or emotions, it is an act of being open and honest with the other party about how you feel, even if the problem is on your end. Healthy confrontation seeks to resolve feelings and problems instead of hide or suppress them. Healthy confrontation doesn't seek revenge – Confrontation is not about seeking revenge, repayment, or even feelings of regret and sorrow. Confrontation is not about getting retribution. Healthy confrontation listens and understands – Healthy confrontation, although it is about being open and transparent about how you feel, also listens and understand what the other party has to say. Actually listening to another person's story and perspective shows that you actually care about the relationship.
