How Is This Strange Time Affecting You? – TPS427

In this episode I share some thoughts about what each of us can do to overcome feelings of aloneness and powerlessness that are affecting a lot of people during this difficult time.

I’m trying to identify the emotions, both comfortable and uncomfortable, that I’m experiencing now.
Because I like to solve problems, not knowing how to help leads me to feel powerless.
I have no power to change what’s going on outside of me. I can only change what’s going on inside of me.
The people in power don’t understand what ordinary people have to go through.
What can each of us do – what actions can we take – to help lift the burden that so many are feeling.
Although there’s a lot of aloneness going on, we have the opportunity to reach out and connect to others.
It’s important to reach out to others and be authentic about how you are feeling and what you are dealing with.
If we share our feelings with others, both up and down, we can feel more whole.
Who might you reach out to just to ask How are you doing?
How can you re-perceive the current situation?
We need to connect to and support others.
We have to look beyond the past and into the future. And, you have the right to imagine a positive future.
Try to imagine positive solutions and results of what has been happening.
How can you look into the future and see a positive story?

THE HAPPY BRAIN PODCAST is a frank conversation between Loretta Breuning and a real reader of her book, Habits of a Happy Brain: Retrain your brain to boost your serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin and endorphin levels. Read the book and send your questions to Dr. Breuning on the contact form at the Inner Mammal Institute at: You may be a guest on the show yourself!

The brain chemicals that make us feel good are inherited from earlier mammals. They evolved to do a job, not to make you feel good all the time. When you know the job each chemical does in the state of nature, your ups and downs make sense. More important, you can re-wire yourself to enjoy more of them in sustainable ways.

It’s not easy, alas. Our brain is designed to release happy chemicals when you take steps that promote survival. But our brain defines survival in a quirky way: it cares about the survival of your genes and it relies on neural pathways built in youth. To make things even harder, our brain habituates to the rewards it has so you always have to do more to get more happy chemicals.

We are not born with survival skills like our animal ancestors. Each newborn human wires itself from its own early experience. Happy chemicals are like paving on your neural pathways, wiring you to repeat behaviors that made you feel good before. This is why our urgent motivations don’t make sense to our verbal brain. It’s not easy being mammal!

When you know how your brain works, you can find healthier ways to enjoy happy chemicals and relieve unhappy chemicals. You can build new neural pathways by feeding your brain new experiences. But you have to design the new experiences carefully and repeat them— a lot!

The Inner Mammal Institute has free resources to help you make peace with your inner mammal: videos, blogs, infographics, and podcasts. Dr. Breuning’s manyt books illuminate the big picture and help you plot your course. You can feel good in new ways, no matter where you are right now. Get the details at

Dealing with Mid-COVID stress

me to look at the funky weird state we’re in mid-COVID and its bearing
on our mental wellness.

Do you feel like your super over COVID even though we’re not over COVID?
Are you tired, frustrated, and in need of a self-care recharge?

The reality is that it’s ok to not feel ok, that you may be desperately missing normalcy or having a sense of uncertainty with your social, personal, and work-life when it comes to COVID.

We have teachers uncertain about what their classroom is going to look like. There are parents on edge about how to respond with the upcoming school year. The countless struggling with heightened anxiety and depression with the impending uncertainty of what to expect with work, traveling, socializing, and simply dealing with everyday life.

Trevor and I chat on ways to identify when we’re not in a good place and look at ways to strengthen our mental wellness and get in a flow that works for us.
