Did you know that there are Brain Traps that hold us back from believing in ourselves, creates more negativity, and get in the way of achieving long term goals? In this episode of the Steven de Cuba’s Podcast, Dr. Adina McGarr-Knabke covers the 3 brain traps that keep individuals from being actionable.

Dr. Adina McGarr-Knabke is a licensed clinical psychologist in private practice in Santa Barbara, California. She specializes in anxiety, eating disorders, and addiction, but has a particular interest in helping busy professional women become more empowered to live their valued life, without being burdened by anxiety, unhealthy coping mechanisms, or negative mindsets. She has presented on The Neurophysiological Aspects of Addiction, Eating Disorders, Body Dysmorphic Disorders, and Affect Regulation.

Let me offer you a brilliant piece of advice, (if I do say so myself).  If you want to feel inspired, shift your mindset, experience more gratitude, be more positive, or an iteration of any of these, there is something you must do AND it’s incredibly simple.  Fill your mind with inspiring content, plain and simple.  Whether that is in the form of podcasts, social media, magazines, books, blog articles, etc.  The format doesn’t matter, but the content does.  

Unfortunately, there isn’t a shortage of stress, fear, bad news, worries, violence, hardship, etc.  AND, like a train wreck, our attention is naturally drawn to it.   With this in mind, be a critical consumer of your media diet and be intentional about filling yourself with information that will enliven you.

Speaking of, I’m so honored and grateful to be part of and to write for a new community, myself, called OneTribe.  It is a personal development magazine dedicated to transforming the way we see ourselves and the world around us. If you’re interested in mind, body, and soul, join the tribe!   Check out my newest article here.
