Show Notes

Guest: Daniel Amen, M.D., psychiatrist, author, founder of Amen Clinics

Globally, mental health issues are on the rise. A new poll from the American Psychological Association found that a large majority of Americans are reporting high stress levels due to financial concerns, inflation, the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Russian invasion of Ukraine. 

Stress and mental health are important topics anytime, but especially now, with so much uncertainty happening in our world, this time-relevant episode will give you valuable suggestions and direction for these times.

High-profile athletes and celebrities, including Simone Biles, Michael Phelps, Naomi Osaka, and Prince Harry, have courageously gone public about their own mental health challenges, making it more acceptable for any of us to seek help.

Our Add Heart® Podcast guest, Dr. Daniel Amen, talks about mental health during these times and how we can take charge of our brain health. Dr. Amen is a physician, psychiatrist, professor, and 12-time New York Times bestselling author. He is a double board-certified child and adult psychiatrist and founder of Amen Clinics, Inc., with ten clinics across the country. Dr. Amen’s latest book is titled You, Happier and was released just before this podcast aired.

Dr. Amen and podcast host Deborah Rozman, Ph.D., also discuss the dynamic heart-brain connection in this episode and simple strategies to reduce and prevent stress and increase happiness. Health care professionals and individuals alike can benefit from the brain tools that Dr. Amen recommends—and the heart tools developed at HeartMath® to improve mental and emotional health. 

This episode closes with a heart-focused meditation to get our heart and brain in sync to help release stress and connect with what’s important to you to support your mental and emotional well-being.
