    It's ok not to be ok!

    It's ok not to be ok!

    In this podcast I talk about the 100% happiness fallacy, and why learning how how to embrace your pain and rewrite your story is an important part of being truly happy. This is a replay of a Neurolive webinar I did on my app. For the full webinar AD-free, please see Neurocycle.app or look for Neurocycle on the App Store or Google Play.



    Does it feel to you like you must be happy all the time? Often, it feels like happiness and being positive is touted as the wonder drug to solve our problems. It is easy to feel like there is something wrong with you if you are not as happy as other people seem to be! Yes, being happy and optimistic ways can have a positive impact on our mind, brain and body, but thinking happy thoughts doesn't just eliminate whatever we are going through.

    Confronting the “good girl” trap with Elise Loehnen

    Confronting the “good girl” trap with Elise Loehnen

    Elise is also the author of the New York Times bestseller On Our Best Behavior: The Seven Deadly Sins and the Price Women Pay to Be Good. This incredible book “weaves together history, memoir, and cultural criticism to explore the ways patriarchy lands in the bodies of women and embeds itself in our consciousness—and what we then police in ourselves and in each other”.  It is about the way we as women are programmed by culture and society to adhere to certain ideas about “goodness”. in many ways, women, from young are programmed to be on their best behavior, while men are programmed to be powerful, which affects all parts of a woman’s life.

    Screen time is not as bad as we think

    Screen time is not as bad as we think

    In this podcast I talk about screen time, sleep and what the research really tells us about technology use before bed. This is a replay of a Neurolive webinar I did on my app. For the full webinar AD-free, please see Neurocycle.app look for Neurocycle on the App Store or Google Play.



    As technology advances, our sleep duration decreases. Or, so we have been told. But, are these two phenomena directly connected? And does this apply to all age groups? When it comes to our circadian rhythm, is screen time always a bad thing?

Dr Leaf

I learn so much from you. Thanks Dr Leaf, also you are so amazing at interviewing people & bring out the best. It’s truly a gift in you. You also are such a gift to all of us. Thanks Caron

Ears and heart wide open ,

Light bulb moment !!

I dip in and out of Dr Leaf’s podcast as stuff comes up in my life, there will always be an episode that resonates. This show was exactly what I needed to unlock a recent encounter with intrusive thoughts around imposter syndrome, feeling like I wasn’t good enough, smart enough, incapable of putting my coaching business online. Thank you Dr Leaf, this episode has given me a new set of tools to unpack and reconstruct my intrusive thoughts that were totally paralyzing me. Loved it😘

Too Much

I am sure this lady knows a lot but her podcasts are annoying. She talks so much about herself with a multitude of anecdotal side items that do nothing to improve my knowledge and understanding regarding the subject matter. It’s highly irritating and also time-wasting. Let the guests get to the point and save the chitchat for coffee after the show. We are all busy people.
