Tracey Maxfield–Escaping the Rabbit Hole (Bullying)

In Tracey Maxfield’s words: “Tracey Maxfield is a retired nurse with over 36 years’ experience in gerontology, mental health, and dementia care. In 2017-19, she was a regular guest on well-known author and radio host Peter Rosenberger’s show Hope For the Caregiver on Sirius radio. Tracey has written articles on dementia care, medical research and mental illness/bullying in teenagers. She is the Purple Angel Dementia Ambassador for the Okanagan. B.C. and NAASCA Ambassador for B.C., Canada.

Tracey experienced her first episode of clinical depression in her twenties and lived with chronic depression ever since. However, nothing prepared her for the acute depressive episode she experienced in 2015. After enduring years of intense workplace stress, harassment and bullying, she plummeted into an abyss of darkness, hopelessness and despair the likes of which she had never experienced before.

Encouraged by a psychologist, Tracey started a Blog, Escaping the Rabbit Hole: my life with depression, to better help her friends understand her depression. Over time, Tracey began to heal and found that out of the darkness and despair, there is hope, there is life after depression.

Escaping the Rabbit Hole: my journey through depression is Tracey’s first book and has received international rave reviews. Since the release of her book, Tracey has become a staunch advocate for Mental Illness and Mental Health Awareness and Bullying and completed the course, Bringing Mental Health to Schools. She has met with children, teenagers and young adults to talk about bullying and mental illness and was one of the ‘Break Out’ presenters at the TEACH 2019 Conference in Jacksonville, Florida.

Her website www.traceymaxfield.com was recently awarded the silver medal for Best Author Website 2019 at the eLit Awards and her book was a top 10 finalist in the Non-Fiction category at the Author Academy Awards. Tracey has appeared on ABC, NBC and FOX TV morning shows, live radio and over 60 podcasts in the USA, Canada, New Zealand and UK. She recently returned from the UK where she gave a presentation about bullying in the workplace at a Hospital in Somerset.

Tracey has her own You Tube channel: Engage Educate Empower and posts weekly videos and blog posts about mental illness and bullying. In December 2019 she released her first on-line course about mental illness, suicide and bullying in children and teenagers. Her philosophy is to Engage children and teenagers, to Educate them about mental illness and bullying and to Empower them to develop confidence and skills to continue to move ahead in their own life journey.

Your Inner Cow!

My guest, April Ockerman, manages cows and teaches people how to manage them. I love hearing her view of animal behavior.

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: InnerMammalInstitute.org. 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 InnerMammalInstitute.org.
