In this episode, Dr. Chris sits down with Ph.D. Loretta Breuning to discuss how our animal brains work and how we can retrain them to release the "happy chemicals" that help us experience life at a higher level. If you want more of those feel-good hormones in your life, then listen up and you won't be disappointed!

Dr. Loretta Breuning is Founder of the Inner Mammal Institute and author of Habits of a Happy Brain: Retrain your brain to boost your serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin, and endorphin. As Professor of Management at California State University, and as a parent, Loretta lost faith in prevailing theories of human motivation. Then she studied the brain chemistry we’ve inherited from earlier mammals, and everything made sense. So she founded the Inner Mammal Institute and started creating resources that help people build power over their mammalian brain chemistry. The Inner Mammal Institute offers free media in every form: videos, blogs, podcasts, slideshows, infographics, and a 5-Day Happy-Chemical Jumpstart. Find details on the Inner Mammal Institute Training Certification and all of Dr. Breuning’s books. Her books have translated into Spanish, Russian, Chinese, Arabic, French, Turkish, and German. Her latest book is Tame Your Anxiety: Rewiring Your Brain for Happiness.
