Andrew Huberman, PhD runs a neurobiology lab at Stanford University and talks today with Joe De Sena about the brain science behind many of our moods and behaviors. How can you trigger the chemical releases, naturally with behaviors, that will help you sleep better, control stress, and achieve more? It turns out napping is great for memory, recovery, and health, that a simple breathing technique can immediately reduce stress, and dopamine can help you achieve your goals. Dive into what your brain chemicals are actually doing and how to control your internal reward mechanisms. This episode is full of invaluable tips!
