Train Your Mind Like You Would Train a Puppy

It’s amazing to me that we don’t teach kids how to think. We teach them how to solve academic problems but nowhere in school or in kids early years does anyone teach them how to solve conflicts, manage emotions or change the way they think about events in their lives. This misstep is indicative in […]

Underneath all anxiety – no matter what type of anxiety it is – is an undercurrent of fear.

Default Worries and What They Do for the Brain

Default worries is a term I came up with several years ago when I had kids returning to my office with the same fears they had months, even years before. They would come in fearing death, getting sick, getting old, failing out of school, not getting into college, etc. They had seemingly moved past those fears […]
