In this podcast I talk about the benefits of snoozing! This is a replay of a Neurolive webinar I did on my app. For the full webinar AD-free, please see neurocycle.app. We have been told hitting the snooze button is a bad habit. But is it? Recently, I read an article in Scientific American that talk about how snoozing can actually be good for us! A growing body of recent research says that snoozing is not the be all and end all that we have been told it is. In some research, there is actually no difference in health outcomes for chronic snoozers and non-snoozers! 🚨Get 15% OFF Brain-Ee bundle here: ⁠⁠⁠⁠https://drleaf.com  📲Get 20% off my brain detox app with code NEUROCYCLE20 (only for first-time web subscriptions): ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠https://web.neurocycle.app/AuthSplash ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠ 💡OFFERS FROM OUR SPONSORS:   -Birch: If you’re looking to upgrade your sleep, it’s the perfect time to check out Birch Living.

In this podcast I talk to bestselling author and top podcast host Mel Robbins about her book The High 5 Habit, the brain-mind-body connection, building self-confidence, and so much more! The high 5 habit is a simple yet profound tool that can change your attitude, your mindset, and behavior. It can help you dig yourself out of a mental hole when you are feeling down or depressed. All you have to do, when standing in front of a mirror in the morning, is give your reflection a high 5, no matter how you feel in the moment. Instead of berating your reflection, or turning away from it, this little action helps shift your mind in a different direction. It helps break apart decides of subconscious programming and helps your brain create new programming that helps your brain change how you see yourself and what you are capable of.  🚨Get 15% OFF Brain-Ee bundle here: ⁠⁠⁠⁠https://drleaf.com  📲Get 20% off my brain detox app with code NEUROCYCLE20 (only for first-time web subscriptions): ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠https://web.neurocycle.app/AuthSplash ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠ 💡OFFERS FROM OUR SPONSORS:   Qualia Senolytic: Resist aging at the cellular level, try Qualia Senolytic.

In this podcast I talk about the importance of friendships, and how they can impact our mental health. Friendships are a beautiful part of life that contribute so much value to our lives, in so many wonderful ways. However, in recent years, researchers have noticed a decline in people’s social circles and number of friends. They have attributed this decline to many reasons, including the recent COVID pandemic, which left us more isolated and disconnected, and the higher cost of living, which means that more and more of use spend less time hanging out with loved ones and more time working to survive.

In this podcast I talk about the importance of step 5 in my Neurocycle process: the active reach. This is a replay of a Neurolive webinar I did on my app. For the full AD-FREE episode please see neurocycle.app. In case you haven’t listened to any of my other podcasts or read any of my books or research, the Neurocycle is a way to harness our thinking power that I have developed and researched over the past three decades (I discuss this in detail in my book Cleaning Up Your Mental Mess and my app Neurocycle). It has 5 steps. The first step is to 1. gather awareness of how we feel mentally and physically and our perspective when we are dealing with a past wound. The second step is to 2. reflect on how we feel. Then we 3. write down our reflections to help organize our thinking. The fourth step is to 4. recheck: think about what our thoughts and feelings are trying to tell us. What does it say about what happened to us? What is our “antidote”— how will we work through how our thoughts are affecting us? Lastly, do the 5. active reach. This is a thought or action we need to practice daily to help us reconceptualize what we thought about in the previous step. What we are going to do each day to give ourselves the time and mental space needed to deal with what is bothering us and turn our destructive thoughts into a constructive future?  🚨Get 15% OFF Brain-Ee bundle here: ⁠⁠⁠⁠https://drleaf.com  📲Get 20% off my brain detox app with code NEUROCYCLE20 (only for first-time web subscriptions): ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠https://web.neurocycle.app/AuthSplash ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠ 💡OFFERS FROM OUR SPONSORS:   -Oneskin: No matter the season, you can keep your skin looking and feeling healthy with OneSkin.

In this podcast I talk about how to manage being the “villain” in someone else’s story. It is impossible to always be the “good guy” in life. You may not see yourself as the villain, but someone else might. This is often the case with people you have had a more intense relationship with, which may have ended badly, or is in the process of ending. It can be incredibly frustrating process, and hard to deal with, especially if it’s a close friend or family member.  🚨Get 15% OFF Brain-Ee bundle here: ⁠⁠⁠⁠https://drleaf.com📲Get 20% off my brain detox app with code NEUROCYCLE20 (only for first-time web subscriptions): ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠https://web.neurocycle.app/AuthSplash⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠ OFFERS FROM OUR SPONSORS:   ButcherBox: ButcherBox is offering our listeners their choice of a weeknight meal essential—3 lbs of chicken thighs, 2 lbs of ground beef, or 1 lb of premium steak tips—for free in every order for a whole year. Plus, get $20 off your first order.

In this podcast I talk about the problem with the phrase “time heals all”.  There are so many phrases that we use without really thinking of their impact until it hits us—we are in a place where we experience first-hand the pain that a blithe statement, meant as comfort, can cause, even something as simple as “time heals all”. So why does the phrase “time heals all wounds” feel so frustrating and untrue at certain times in our lives? 🚨Get 15% OFF Brain-Ee bundle here: ⁠⁠⁠⁠https://drleaf.com📲Get 20% off my brain detox app with code NEUROCYCLE20 (only for first-time web subscriptions): ⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠https://web.neurocycle.app/AuthSplash⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠⁠ OFFERS FROM OUR SPONSORS:   -Betterhelp: Become your own soulmate, whether you’re looking for one or not.

referring to my last comment! it was my device settings! Dr Leaf sounded like she was on speed 🤣. The settings must have accidentally shifted. all corrected now 😁

Has this podcast been sped up? it was unusually fast speech. may just be my devise but I'm wondering if it was a recording fault. only mentioning because it made it very difficult to listen to. 🤔

thank God for the fast forward! basically a giant infomercial with a few bits of somewhat useful information. geeze. almost not worth listening to. Definitely not worth it if you cannot fast forward.

How wonderful that I can now see what I've learned from you in practise! I listen with more deliberation and I can actually visualise the process of thinking, feeling and choosing. I am still an infant in this process so I am so excited at how much more enriched and stronger I will be as I become more practiced at neurocycling. Thank you so much, from me, my family and my friends because we are all gaining from me learning. ❤

Power is internal, silent inner knowing and claiming self. People will not be treated by you unless they have an issue in themselves. They will be drawn to you instead.

I was in an emotionally abusive relationship during my college years. In the beginning I also thought well he has never hit me physically but, that's the insidious nature of such relationships, they manipulate you, make you feel guilty and sudden outbursts of anger and breaking objects. It was a very traumatic experience of my life, I lost my self esteem and confidence. I'm on a healing journey.

the information provided on this podcast is so valuable, some people do not have access to mental health services at least not at such depth and understanding. It's very helpful, thank you

I think if Doctor let speakers finish their sentence and then she starts that's better...

Thank you for your wise words. Your honest, knowledgeable and heartfelt approach to managing the mind is the most helpful guide I have happened across in my years of trying to understand myself, my family and friends. Jacqui 😊

Thank you Caroline and Nicole. I have just discovered both of you after listening to Dr Will Cole's podcast. I have purchased Nicole's book and have just started to do the work. I have witnessed how the brain can change when you nurture your mind by consistently practising gratitude and focused breath work (that I started during covid restrictions in 2020 that left me open and vulnerable to 'stuff' that came up). I am so hopeful that by continuing my personal work I will be able to lead my fullest life and be the parent I need to be rather than the parent who, despite trying really hard, has become a version of her own parents (good and bad!). I think your approaches share commonalities and are complimentary. I can't wait to work through both books and am excited for being able to report back to you. Thank you for YOUR work. 😊 Jacqui
