155: Nick Onken – Taking Out Your Mind Trash
“It’s that monkey brain chatter of worry, fear, and anxiety, and all the thoughts that come from worrying about the future and regretting the past.”
To stay healthy, we make sure we eat the right foods and keep hydrated. To stay clean, we brush our teeth and wash ourselves. Why should taking care of our mind be any different?
Today on NION Radio, we’re talking about taking out our mind trash, which could be keeping us from becoming our best selves and taking charge of our own lives. Listen in as we talk about how to boost your productivity, reduce stress and anxiety, and change your brain chemistry through meditation.
