If you tell someone you’re feeling depressed, they will probably assume there must be an external cause and ask, “why?”. According to Alex Korb, this isn’t the right question! Instead, we need to look toward the complicated configuration of the human brain.
Today’s big idea comes from Alex Korb and his insightful book, ‘The Upward Spiral’. The book has the subtitle ‘Using neuroscience to reverse the cause of depression, one small change at a time’ and is, in its essence, a guide on how to defend yourself against depression and anxiety.
In the book we learn that when a person becomes depressed, it happens due to a communication dysfunction in the brain! Thoughts and emotions start spinning out of control, creating a downward spiral – pulling you into a vortex of sadness, fatigue, and apathy.
The good news is that recent science confirms that the brain, like the rest of the body, can be restored and improved through dedication and practice. Through incremental positive adjustments, you can trigger neurochemicals in your brain that counter stress, reduce anxiety, and put you back on an upward spiral.
We hope you will enjoy our animated summary of the book; you can watch it here:
