Here is the thing, stress and the fight, flight or freeze response are part of our everyday life.
Understanding stress and leveraging stress to your advantage can crucially impact your overall quality of life.
We tap into the expertise and experience of our guests as we discuss how performance is related to fear, anxiety, struggle and pressure.
You will learn how you can influence your nervous system as Dr. Huberman highlights the science behind stress responses.
We also study the difference between peak states and optimal performance - as well as the habits that you can implement to improve your daily performance.
In this episode, you will learn about:
Andrew D. Huberman (born in 1975 in Palo Alto, California) is an American neuroscientist and tenured associate professor in the Department of Neurobiology at the Stanford University School of Medicine.
He has made numerous important contributions to the fields of brain development, brain plasticity, and neural regeneration and repair.
A large amount of that work focused on the visual system, including the mechanisms that control light-mediated activation of the circadian and autonomic arousal centers in the brain, as well as the brain control over conscious vision or sight.
Rich Diviney lives to discover, inspire, and accelerate the potential of human beings.
Rich draws upon 20+ years of experience as a Navy SEAL Officer to give participants the foundational understanding and tools to unlock their greatest potential.
Since his retirement from the military in 2016, Rich has worked with Simon and his team to help leaders and organizations create environments where people feel valued and free to explore their potential. He speaks about the qualities of high performing teams and how to build them, as well as the important relationship between trust and performance.
