EPISODE 334 Our early ancestors were forced to develop a strong sense of cognitive caution to keep them out of danger. This fight or flight trait that once kept cavemen and women alive can now have a negative impact on our lives. While our survival is no longer a daily concern, our emotional and mental health is in threat. Much of our suffering can be linked to our minds and how we think and react to everyday stressors. In today’s podcast, Dr. Bray will share how to control our emotional and mental reactions better when things aren’t going well.
