    When Your Happy Chemicals Droop

    in Social Sciences

    Happy chemicals naturally droop after they spurt. Questions about the “after the party” letdown feeling, about food obsessions, and about classical virtues.
    This podcast is a live call-in with Loretta Breuning, PhD, author of Habits of a Happy Brain: Retrain your brain to boost your serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin and endorphin levels. Questions? InnerMammalInstitute.org/podcast.
    Happiness is caused by four special brain chemicals: dopamine, serotonin, oxytocin, and endorphin. When you know how they work in animals, you can find your power over them in daily life.
    The happy chemicals are not designed to flow all the time for no reason. They evolved to reward behaviors that promote survival in the state of nature. They are only released in short spurts, so you always have to do more to get more. This makes life frustrating!
    Our chemicals are controlled by neural pathways built from life experience. Neurons connect when your happy chemicals flow, which wires you to repeat behaviors that felt good before. Fortunately, you can re-wire yourself, but it’s not easy. That’s why we keep discussing and asking questions.
    The Inner Mammal Institute has resources that help you make peace with your inner mammal: books, videos, blogs, graphics, and podcasts. You’ll find out what turns on your happy chemicals in the state of nature, and how you can turn them on today. InnerMammalInstitute.org

  • Sleeping with the enemy- Why indivduals murder their own family members

    in Social Sciences

    (Coming Soon)
    What is the root cause of individuals killing their very own family members?  What are signs and symptoms that go undetected?  Is there any validity in individuals just "snapping" or is this just a way for us to grasp at understanding the complexity of why someone would kill their own flesh and blood.  What is the emotional debris that is left behind for those who are left to pick up the pieces and put things back together?  It's hard to put your head around why someone would commit such a heinous act. Are we in denial about mental illness in our communities?  What impact does culture and religion have on our perceptions of mental illness?  Is it possible to commit such an act and not be mentally ill?  Come prepared to discuss, learn and explore the impact on such crimes on family, the community and society

    in Social Sciences

    (Coming Soon)
    It doesn't matter what form of media you follow or what the Media outlet of your choice is.  .  .  .  It's hard to escape the rise and escalation of violence on black men in and around our communities.  The pendulum as sifted from a primarily urban environment to academic, religious and suburban America.  It’s rampant in most every city in every state in the United States.  What is this rise in violence by law enforcement about?  Has it always been a systemic issue which went unnoticed and undetected or a symptom of the current state of the union? Why is the violence so prevalent at this time?  How do we contribute directly or indirectly to being perceived as violent?  How is it that the unjustified violence has now begun to be visited on women of color?   Let’s discuss what we can do individually, collectively and as a community to combat this violence?  This topic is sure to be a spirted discussion of the plethora of problems, contributing factors, solutions and recourse.

  • Criminal Mischief- Being Black in America

    in Social Sciences

    (Coming Soon)
    Everyday all over the country; there are calls to 911 reporting people of color for being Black in America.  It is the consensus of many Whites that we don’t have the right to engage in everyday activities in certain areas or under certain conditions.  We are presumed as being guilty of some criminal activity to for merely be parked, standing, dining or walking while Black in America.  What is at the root of this; not “fear”, but paranoia?  Why are we perceived as the ultimate threat? Even in circumstances where common sense should prevail; it seems common sense is abandoned and paranoia and insensitivity set in.  More importantly, when these call are made to 911 what gives the white accusers story validity when the facts suggest otherwise.  Let’s explore this new strategy being implemented in white America.  .  . What is the counter action to this new form of being Black in America?

    Cortisol, Mortality, and Legacy
