I am a self-help/self-awareness junkie.

Someone who really loves the mechanics of the brain and is fascinated with our emotions and how we can control them.

 If you are nodding your head in agreement to all of the above, then you must watch Disney Pixar’s Inside Out.

The movie features 11 year old Riley’s brain where each character is an emotion - joy, sadness, fear, disgust, and anger. If you haven’t already watched it, I highly recommend the movie because it is a great illustration of what is happening inside our mind!

Our brains are actually programmed for negativity, which means happiness is truly a muscle we all need to exercise.

The realization that you have control over quieting or hearing certain voices in your head is truly empowering and liberating.

Watch the movie, learn to become more in tuned with your "Joy" and start listening to her the most!
