Episode #71: Why is change so hard? + Tips to help train your brain to deal with, and love, change + how to know when change is good & worth the effort

March 18, 2019

An overwhelming majority fear and avoid change, yet change is one of the best things for mental, spiritual, emotional, and physical development. Even if we are one of those rare people who like change, it is often becuase we are more in love with the idea of change than the process itself. If it is so good why do we hate change? In this episode I discuss why we avoid change, how to train your brain to embrace and love change, and how to know when change is good and worth the effort.

Mindfulness is a very hot topic now. And there are many benefits to being mindful through prayer or meditation.

About the 2019 Mental Health Initiative:

I am making 2019 the year of mental health! Each month I will tackle a specific problem, issue, and concept related to mental ill health. I will be discussing major issues in the current mental health system AND how to find healing for yourself or a loved one.

I’m excited to announce that for the February and March Mental Health Initiative we are going to be doing another book club! Over the next eight weeks we will be going through my latest book, Think Learn Succeed!

I decided to spread the book over two months because there is just so much to unpack and discuss. Like the January Perfect You book club, there will be weekly YouTube Live sessions that go over the assigned chapters as well as blogs and podcasts related to topics and concepts in Think Learn Succeed.

How you understand and use your mind is predictive of how successful you will be. Nothing will work unless you get your mind right first. Think Learn Succeed is all about helping you make that switch to a life well-lived, filled with meaningful success.

So how do you join the book club?

1. Get the book! You can order it online from my website and get 20% off with coupon code TLS20: https://store.drleaf.com/collections/frontpage/products/think-learn-succeed-book

2. You can also order the book on Amazon or pick it up wherever books are sold: https://www.amazon.com/Think-Learn-Succeed-Understanding-Workplace-ebook/dp/B07933HG86/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1548440607&sr=8-1&keywords=think+learn+succeed+by+dr+caroline+leaf

3. I highly encourage getting the DVD and workbook as this will really help you understand this book so much more, and it makes a great companion to the weekly YouTube sessions! The DVD and workbook are designed for groups or individuals, and are like bible study guides. You can purchase the Think Learn Succeed Study Pack here: https://store.drleaf.com/collections/group-studies/products/think-learn-succeed-curriculum-kit

4. You can also get the book on Kindle, and get the audiobook on Amazon's Audible.

5. The YouTube Live Schedule (copy this and keep it somewhere you can see each week!):

February 8th 5pm CT: Introduction and Chapters 1 & 2: https://youtu.be/V9fzKitEsGU
February 13th 7pm CT: Chapters 3 & 4
February 22nd 5pm CT: Chapters 5-7
February 28th 5pm CT: Chapters 8-10
March 8th 5pm CT: Chapters 11-13
March 15th 5pm CT: Chapters 14-16
March 21st 5pm CT: Chapters 17-18
March 29th 5pm CT: Chapters 19-20

*Chapters 21 & 22 are more on the science of my research and work and are optional readings.

**Be sure to read the assigned chapters BEFORE the Youtube Live as this will really help you understand the book better. In the YouTube live sessions I give a recap of the assigned chapters for that week, and go into some explanations of the concepts. I also give practical application tips.

This is also a great book for students, teachers, and parents of students as it deals a lot with learning, memory, and learning difficulties!
