EP. 175 — Managing Your Mind with Dr. Caroline Leaf

Cognitive neuroscientist Dr. Caroline Leaf joins Jameela this week to discuss how we can use our minds to detox and grow our brains. We discover we have the ability to manage our minds and by isolating ourselves from triggers, we’re masking our own resilience. They discuss the scale of trauma terminology and microaggressions, the mind-body connection and much more.
