Toxic thoughts, depression, anxiety—our mental mess is frequently aggravated by a chaotic world and sustained by an inability to manage our runaway thoughts. While we can’t control the events and circumstances of life, we can learn to control our reactions, which help us deal with and manage the many challenges we face and will face in our life. So, how exactly do we do that?
On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, I talk to Dr. Caroline Leaf about her five-step mind-management process, called Neurocycle, and how it helps to find and eliminate the root of anxiety, depression, and intrusive thoughts. We discuss how to apply mind-management to unwire toxic habits and trauma. We also talk about how the way we manage our mind and our emotional state impacts our telomeres.

This episode is brought to you by the Pegan Shake.
How you start your morning sets the tone for the day. I’m a huge fan of morning routines because I think they can transform your ability to focus, sleep well, and get the most out of your day, especially in this busy, modern world.
What I’ve found is that the best way to begin your day is to feed your body the right information or the right nutrients. That’s why Dr. Hyman and I created the Pegan Shake. It’s a nutritionally packed morning blend designed to support healthy blood sugar, energy, and brainpower.
It contains some of my most favorite brain-boosting foods like MCT and avocado. It also features acacia fiber for healthy gut function and collagen, pumpkin, and pea protein to support muscle synthesis. Check it out at getfarmacy.com/peganshake.
