Join Sarah Saffari and Louisa Nicola on the very first episode of the Hidden Potential podcast! Sarah and Louisa have a really interesting conversation about neuroscience and its impact on our daily tasks, everyday performance and overall well being. For anyone aspiring to be a better professional and expand your business, you will learn practical habits and tasks that will help immensely with your work. In addition, concepts like quality of sleep, nutrition, movement, and exercising, are all examples of things you can implement in your day in order to improve your mental health.
“We’ve all got depression inside of us and if we don’t do certain things on a daily basis, we’re going to activate that depression.” – Louisa Nicola
Louisa gives us an overview about visualization as well as how to actually engage our senses, feelings and intentions in order to trick our brain and visualize immediate success. She dives into the difference between visualization (make believe), meditation (relaxation) and the whole functionality of the motivation molecule known as dopamine. According to Louisa, dopamine is essential in our body and is, in fact, released before exercise as well as during exercise.
