    This is amazing in so many ways! I am going through rehabilitation due to a complex background of mental diseases and disabilities and I really want to work in the psychiatry. Just learning about how agitation is a biological normal process when it comes to learning is very relieving and it's really pushing me forward. I sent an email regarding studies to the lady helping me after watching that part. Now I'm waiting for a meeting to get started. I feel ready to embrace it instead of giving up. Thank you!
    This also gives me more things to think about and more tools to keep in my toolbox. I love it!

    Herpes is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases, prompting many to wonder how to get rid of herpes naturally....Do anyone still doubt natural herbs? We all know that herpes is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases, prompting many to wonder how to get rid of herpes naturally. Unfortunately, they did not find a definite solution to herpes but today I have brought you the great opportunity we all have been waiting for because I've seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people's lives. I wonder why people still spend their money on surgery, injections and drugs each time they are sick or diagnosed. Natural herbs can cure all kinds of illness including herpes, diabetics, asthma, HIV, hepatitis, etc. I've seen it with my own eyes. I was cured of Herpes and my aunt and her husband were cured of HIV by Dr. Tokubo using natural herbs to cure different kinds of illness. Even Dr. Sebi and Dr. Tokubo has proven to the whole world that natural herbs can cure all diseases and it cured countless people using natural herbs. I know it is hard to believe but am a living testimony. There is no harm in trying herbs. He is also a spell caster, he can cast a spell to restore your marriage back to normal, a good luck spell to prosper in life and excel in whatever you do in life. Contact or email Dr. tokubo on: (phone/whatsapp no): +2349037990322

    I truly enjoyed this podcast. Everything that is spoken of is all in my experience. Ive learnt how to control my chemistry. Meditation is how I achieved this state. Becoming sensible to my lifes energy is what helped me become more aware and conscious. I realized emdr at a young age. Flow state is an amazing way to experience life which I acheive with counscious breathing. Everytime I take a counscious breath I produce goosebumps. Love your work 👍

    There is so much to process here, I will have to watch this SO many times to grasp and absorb the many levels in which this applies to my life! That is how my brain works. In 1990, at the age of 20, my life changed forever. 13 trips to the ER and being told I was JUST an “emotional” young woman. I KNEW something wasn’t right, but man, being patted on the head and released full of shame and embarrassed over and over again is so awful. Even my family started thinking the same. Fast forward, a doc finally paid attention and found out I had 2 blood clots that could have killed me: DVT’s, mitral valve prolapse, and a digestive issue that weakened my breathing. Weeks in the hospital at that age, going from feeling invincible to people joining hands and praying over me; PTSD, anxiety, panic disorder, sprinkled with a little agoraphobia and claustrophobia. I was labeled a victim and I have OWNED that ever since. I am working on it but I now recognize how much that feeling of desperation changed the trajectory of my life. Mental health was NOT TALKED about then. Now I have to unlearn and recognize that fear has been the most prevalent guiding force in my life. It’s just a mess! At my age it is so difficult, I just instinctively want to fall into what I was “told” was my role in the world. Long way to go!!!!

    Flow Experience Explained in 2 minutes (and norepinephrine has nothing to do with it)
    It has recently been demonstrated (link below) that reward uncertainty or novelty can enhance the sensory experience of high value reward. In other words, popcorn actually tastes better when we are watching exciting movies, and tastes worse when we are watching paint dry. This is due to what are called dopamine-opioid interactions, or the fact that dopamine activity (elicited by positive novel events, and responsible for a state of arousal, but not pleasure) interacts with our pleasures (as reflected by opioid activity), and can actually stimulate opioid activity, which is reflected in self-reports of greater pleasure.
    Opioid release occurs when we are consuming food and drink, but it also occurs when our musculature is in a state of inactivity or rest, which is why relaxation feels good. Thus it follows that any behaviors which have a lot of positive reward uncertainty (creating art, climbing mountains, etc.) will stimulate naturally occurring opioid activity in concurrent resting states, with subsequent self-reports of high arousal and pleasure, which precisely describes all flow experiences. In other words, flow is simply opioid-dopamine interactions due to pursuing positive novel events during a state of rest. Furthermore, as dopamine release scales with the salience of the activity, so will the resulting flow experience. We also see this for flow experiences, where the pleasure and arousal scales with the importance of the task. Thus a rock climber who is risking his life would have a more intense experience than if he were attached to a tether that would break his fall.
    A longer explanation from affective neuroscience is provided on pp. 80-85 in the open-source book on the psychology of rest linked below, as well as a simple procedure on pp. 48-50 to induce and sustain the positive affect characteristic of flow. The book is based on the work of the distinguished affective neuroscientist Kent Berridge, who was kind to review for accuracy and endorse the work.

    I agree to the uncomfortableness occurs. I used to call them character building moments. Not what I truly may enjoy but neccesary to grow. Oddly changes to a positive moment. This has helped me to truly think about things and be more aware of my difficult moments and my resistance and procrastination . It is helping me reduce that and actively using tools to help me.

      I am no expert but I'd likely say that not sleeping will interfere greatly with your ability to be in control, and sleep will greatly enhance it. Perhaps seek professional help if this is a deep phobia, but like said in the video, lean into that fear and try do the thing anyway. Maybe after sleeping you realise you didn't lose what you fear.

    I wonder if anyone can relate or has insight into my curiosity regarding a certain aspect of neuroeponephrine/stress as being fundamental to creating new neuropathways. I have, like many fellow neurotics, chronic stress and agitation that manifests in ill health like gastritis and atrial fibrillation and thus am eager to avoid overstimulation and stress in general but am also eager to reinvent myself in early adulthood and utilize this information as it seems like established neurology.
    I wonder if one who is already predisposed to stress and agitation has enough of a constant undercurrent of epinephrine, in their relative unagitated state, that it is only necessary to apply focus and not be too concerned with building a sense of urgency; or if it is that one needs to induce moderate stress or low stress relative to their usual state to mimic what a less neurotic mindset would create and somehow train the body to tolerate it without symptoms of ones stress induced or exacerbated illness. Or maybe I have it all wrong and one can release epinephrine in a way that doesn't mimic "fight or flight" type responses or manifest agitation.
    What if the new neuropathways your trying to create are oriented towards being less agitated and neurotic or less stressed?
