Manage episode 355473464 series 82237
In this episode of The Align Podcast, Louisa Nicola and I go deep into how we can enhance our cognitive function, our life longevity and the overall regulation of our nervous system. We discuss how important the mind-body connection is and how this can be strengthened through movement and other practices. We then tap into loneliness, how it plays a vital role in our emotional health and whether it could be the primary factor contributing to human happiness. Louisa also discusses the dangers of alcohol addiction, the concept of dopamine fasting and the benefits of journaling.
