This episode is all about how your brain functions in survival mode, and how survival brain actually changes your thinking.
The idea from the podcast was from a clip on Youtube by Jacob Ham called "Learning Brain vs Survival Brain." So since it's back to school time, I thought about how these survival states even affect our ability to learn.
In survival brain you do not like ambiguities and are prone to black and white thinking. You have a hard time seeing another perspective and you are afraid to make mistakes.
In learning brain you are able to see the big picture, and accept nuances in thinking. There is more receptivity, creativity and ability to connect.
And learning brain is the parasympathetic/calm state which is the "rest and repair" state for your body- where it performs at ultimate health.
So check out this episode for more about detecting survival brain and how to get to the learning brain state more often!
