They breakdown what parts of the brain are responsible for this low performance and how to change this performance for the better.Dr. Amy says that it’s not that we are a bad person but that our instincts for survival are very strong and that it is important that we understand how this side of us works so that we will have more knowledge for driving our successes. Dopamine is released when we perceive pleasure, which directly impacts our memory and learning centers (hippocampus, amygdala) and perpetuates the cycle.Eric shares that at a high level the brain is like an iceberg with that above the surface our consciousness and that larger mass below our unconscious, which includes the limbic system.They then share how the OPT2LIV pillars and coaches can set you up for success and a healthy life.Opt2Liv Virtual Wellness is a family owned business that spans three generations with over 100 years combined experience in health and wellness. We design personal and customized plans to help you along your journey toward optimal living based off of the FOUR principles of Opt2Liv: Breath, Eat, Move, and SleepWhether you are old or young, extremely active or ready for a change, we have solutions to help you live life to the fullest.

    Holiday Prep Stress Buster

    Holiday Prep Stress Buster

    Doug and Eric talk about how to prepare for the stresses of the Holiday Season, and the importance of keeping your glass over half full or overflowing.For survival purposes the brain is intrigued with fear. It is our job as conscious human beings to realize the difference between real fear and perceived fear. Real fear is usually an acute occurrence and our brain is wired to fight or flee. In this state the brain instructs the body to release chemicals, so that it is ready for either state. Once this state has passed the body returns to normal and we go on with our day. Perceived fear, if not recognized and managed, can keep the brain in a state of fight or flight for extended periods of time, which is not normal and can lead to chronic fatigue and/or chronic conditions.Doug and Eric share that science has proven that the brain is plastic and that we have the opportunity to change how it perceives and works. They share some techniques for shifting the nervous system from the fight or flight to the calm digestive healing mode, so that we can begin the process of seeing life full of peace, joy, and love.Opt2Liv Virtual Wellness is a family owned business that spans three generations with over 100 years combined experience in health and wellness. We design personal and customized plans to help you along your journey toward optimal living based off of the FOUR principles of Opt2Liv: Breath, Eat, Move, and SleepWhether you are old or young, extremely active or ready for a change, we have solutions to help you live life to the fullest.
