    Ep 15 Taking Action

    Nancy ends up trapped in her car at the bottom of the ocean floor. What she does to get out will astound you.

    There are two types of action you can be taking toward your goals and dreams: massive action and passive action. In this episode, I talk about what the difference is and what that might look like for teens. I also go over the unpleasant feelings that stop us from taking action.

    Ep 14 Us vs. Them

    Ep 14 Us vs. Them

    Our brain wants to separate things into simple, clear containers. So, oftentimes when there is a complicated issue (or even a not-so-complicated one) our brain will paint an "Us vs. Them" picture. In this episode Joey talks to teens about what that perception might be doing in their lives and how to change it, if they want to.

    Ep 13 Black and Blue

    Ep 13 Black and Blue

    I process the world around me by writing. I wrote this in response to the civil unrest and chaos going on in America right now.

    My next episode will go into the symbolism and meaning of the poem. Though, hopefully like any good literary work, you can derive your own meanings from it.

    Ep 11 Negative Narrative

    Ep 11 Negative Narrative

    Life is rarely a clear cut story with all the details neatly filled in. Our brains naturally bridge the gaps of what isn't clear with narrative about other people's motives, our position in the world, and what the future will be. Teens' brains, along with the rest of us, sometimes choose to write negative narrative to fill in those blank pages. That negative narrative changes the way we feel and ultimately show up in the world.

Priceless!

Joey is absolutely right about the value of the mind management and health for our children! As an educator with over 30 years of experience I am also concerned about how little we teach our kids and teens about the power of their brain! They are our Future that doesn’t know what it is capable of. Thank you, Joey, for your work! And best of luck!

My mom made me do it

I’m going to try and make the best of these. Fighting with my brothers and sisters and driving my mom crazy won’t make this time fun so if it helps. Ok moms ig shg2000co
