1057. Dr. Daniel Amen On How To Become 30% Happier

Mental health empowerment is one of the biggest reasons why I started this show and I’m so excited I could connect with Dr. David Amen, a leader in the psychology field. Dr. Amen recently came out with his book, Change Your Brain Every Day, and in our conversation, he lays out the daily habits for improving brain function and overall mental health. 

Dr. Amen shares the real prescription for happiness, which is a lot more simple than you might think. We talk about how to combat loneliness and digital addictions, two epidemics that are severely affecting people of every generation. Dr. Amen also shares his tips for reframing negative thoughts and increasing focus as an entrepreneur.
