OCTOBER 4 DR. KRISSY DOYLE-THOMAS – VIDEO 🧠

Your ONE MINUTE with Dr. Krissy. Neuroscientist and Professor 🧠

Today’s Topic: ‘Don’t give up!’✨✨

When we experience a WIN, our brain releases endorphins, dopamine and serotonin, which encourages us to engage in a task again.

When we experience a FAILURE, our brain releases cortisol and leaves us with feelings of rejection and vulnerability.

The activation of cortisol fuels our fight/ flight/ freeze/ or fawn response. Fawning is a trauma response where a person develops people-pleasing behaviors to avoid conflict and to establish a sense of safety.

However, failure can help the BRAIN GROW.

So here are some tips to dealing with failure:

👉🏽 Be kind to yourself
👉🏽 Allow yourself to feel
👉🏽 Recognize that failing is normal
👉🏽 Learn from the experience
👉🏽 Don’t give up!

Remember Failure is Success in Progress
