Rewiring for Motivation - Overcoming Your Primitive Brain


Have you ever wondered why it is so hard to press stop at the end of a cliffhanger Netflix episode and why it is so easy to click next and watch another hour when you know you should go to bed? 

Or why it is so hard to stop scrolling your phone when you know you should be doing something much more productive or meaningful? 

Or perhaps, why you often reach for the sweet treat in the afternoon rather than have the carrots and hummus in the fridge? 

It comes down to our motivation and our primitive brain’s desire to move towards pleasure, avoid pain and conserve energy, otherwise known as the Motivational Triad

In today’s podcast, I’m going to be sharing:

  • How we can overcome our primitive brain and find new strategies to increase motivation
  • The role dopamine plays in motivation and how to find ‘good’ dopamine releases 
  • Insights into how to find long-term happiness rather than short-term pleasure
  • How my husband James had a huge motivational shift 
  • How you can find easy ways to do hard things 
  • And so much more…

If you are wanting to feel more motivated and overcome procrastination or unwanted distractions, dive in and take a listen.
