This week’s phenomenal guest is Dr. Sarah McKay.
Sarah is an Oxford University-educated neuroscientist, educator, presenter, media commentator, director of The Neuroscience Academy, and author of The Women’s Brain Book: The neuroscience of health, hormones, and happiness.
I had been a fan of Sarah’s work and her reading book was incredibly inspiring. I had to get her on the show to share her expansive knowledge with you as she breaks down life from the lens of neuroscience.
In this conversation, we talk about:
The power of thoughts + how to disrupt negative thoughts with new stimuli
Processing- and the brain’s role as a predictive machine craving certainty.
How to soothe the brain during times of high-stress
The female lifespan through neuroscience from puberty, adolescence, pregnancy, and menopause.
The large influence of socialization on our mood (overpowering hormonal influence)
Key components to prioritize to cultivate optimal health: sleep + socialization
I’m honored to have Sarah on the show and cannot recommend her work enough.
