Clinical psychologist, author and Co-Leader of The BrainHealth Project, Ian Robertson, PhD, engages in an inspiring conversation about the intricacies of the human mind with hosts of the Let's Talk Brain Health podcast, Jonathan Artz, MD, and Krystal L. Culler, DBH.Cautioning listeners not to become overwhelmed by feelings of stress, Dr. Robertson shares an approach to perspective-taking that helps process and understand feelings that can lead to anxiety and the brain's capacity for resilience and adaptation. By cultivating confidence through action, individuals can nurture brain health and build understanding over how to maintain a healthy response to stress and avoid anxiety.


"Simple psychological practices like self-affirmation of values, that is, going back and saying - what are my values, what do I stand for? Taking a little time just to write for a couple of minutes can reduce stress. The more we can exercise the frontal lobe of our brain the more we can gain control over our emotions." – Dr. Ian Robertson
