EPISODE 317 Bad vs. Good. The age-long saga continues, but you might not have realized it is occurring in your brain. Neuroscience has taught us that negative thinking far outweighs positive thoughts. While negativity bias and threat state thinking improved the odds of your hunter-gather ancestor’s survival, it may not be serving you well in your daily professional and personal life. Negativity bias can exaggerate a threat and hijack your thinking to catastrophize an event or situation that may not be as terrible as you think. Dr. Bray shares the science behind threat and reward state and provides practical, easy to implement tools to overcome negativity bias. This podcast can be life-changing if you find your brain focuses more on negative and the bad, then positive.
