How much do you care about the home you live in?

Does it matter a little or a lot if it’s clean and safe with nice amenities? Of course.
Likewise every day we wake up to live inside our brain. Like your home, you have control over the quality and state of your brain.
Much more control than you have over your outside circumstances, actually, yet we don’t tend to function from this perspective, but instead tend to live as if our brain is concrete and hardwired.
Dr. Caroline Leaf has made it her life’s work to debunk and disprove this and show us how our brain can be our servant instead of the other way around.
As a communication pathologist and cognitive neuroscientist specializing in cognitive and metacognitive neuropsychology she has worked since the early 1980s researching the mind-brain connection, the nature of mental health, and the formation of memory.
She was one of the first in her field to study how the brain can change (neuroplasticity) with directed mind input. Dr. Leaf is the bestselling author of Switch on Your Brain, Think Learn Succeed, and coming soon, Cleaning Up The Mental Mess, which is the title of her top ranked health and wellness podcast.
In this show we go through what led her into the field, how her faith overlaps with her vocational mission, and key aspects of the control we actually have and can employ regarding our brain.

Life can be overwhelming. When your body and mind are stressed you can’t focus on what matters – such as your wellness, which is why I’m introducing you to Focal, Plant-powered wellness for all-natural support, day or night. 

FOCL took something remarkable, Premium Hemp CBD, and made it even better. Premium CBD + stress-fighting adaptogens and ancient botanicals to help you perform during the day and rest at night. This is Modern Mother Nature. 

FOCL plant-powered wellness uses nature’s best ingredients to help you focus during the day and sleep at night.

I’m taking FOCL Day, and Focal Night.

FOCL Day is a one-of-a kind CBD wellness stack. I take 2 capsules each day for calm, focused energy and brain-boosting support. 

Then I take FOCL Night to help calm my busy mind and help me fall and stay asleep so Iwake up refreshed and rested ready to take on a great day.

FOCL Night gives none of the grogginess or “knocked out” feeling of pharmaceuticals, just all-natural, deeper sleep. 

I’m an  admitted sleep nazi and I track how long and how well I sleep.

Focal is Vegan and non-GMO which is a must for me, and I greatly appreciate their confidence in offering a 60-day money back guarantee. Love it or pay $0!
