  • How to Stop Anxiety Related Approval/Status Seeking with Loretta Breuning, Ph.D.

    in Psychology

    Have you ever wondered why humans we compare themselves to others and are addicted to approval seeking? The short answer is, we’ve inherited the brain of mammals who behaved that way. 
    Despite their best intentions, people care about status.The survival value of status in the state of nature helps us understand our intense emotions about status today. Beneath your verbal brain, you have a brain common to all mammals. It rewards you with pleasure hormones when you see yourself in a position of strength, and it alarms you with stress hormones when you see yourself in a position of weakness.
    The problem with constant striving for status and approval is that it can be anxiety-provoking and joy-stealing. Nothing feels like enough to our mammal brain.
    In today's special guest Dr. Loretta G. Breuning's book, Status Games: Why We Play and How to Stop, she shines a light on the brain processes that encourage us to seek higher status. She teaches us how to rewire those connections for more contentment and less stress. No more worrying about keeping up with the Joneses. Your new way of thinking will blaze new trails to your happy hormones and you will relax.
    Loretta Graziano Breuning, PhD isa globally renowned brain chemistry expert. She is founder of the Inner Mammal Institute and Professor Emerita of Management at California State University, East Bay. Her many prior books on mammalian brain chemistry have been translated into ten languages and cited in major media. She has helped thousands of enthusiastic fans to make peace with their inner mammal.
