Today’s episode is without question one of the most IMPORTANT ones I’ve done to date. No joke. You’ve heard me say “GET YOUR MIND RIGHT” for a long-time. Well, today, we have one of the deepest, and most fascinating conversations with leading brain researcher (and “stress expert”) Dr. Heidi Hanna. It’s guaranteed to get your MIND and your BRAIN right!
In the show, Heidi talks in-depth about mental health, anxiety, the “Fab 5” for life, the 3-ways for stress-mastery, brain health, and even getting a “beach brain” philosophy during stressful times. Additionally, Heidi gets personal and gives insight to her own mental health. WOW–I’m telling you, this one is going to make your jaw drop.
You are going to laugh, cry, think deeply, and you will be way better equipped to “win the battle” between your ears after you listen to this one. You will leave feeling refreshed, recalibrated, rejuvenated and your MIND will be RIGHT. Without further ado, let’s get the show started with the one & only Dr. Heidi Hanna.
