Daily Habits That Power Up & Change Your Brain

Daniel Amen, M.D.

Here’s exactly what to do every single day—for the next year—to keep your brain sharp and rock your life.


In this Episode of The Human Upgrade™...

Daniel Amen, M.D., shares the most effective daily habits you can do to improve the way your brain works, based on his 40 years of clinical practice.

In this discussion and in his new book, “Change Your Brain Every Day: Simple Daily Practices to Strengthen Your Mind, Memory, Moods, Focus, Energy, Habits, and Relationships,” he delivers a year’s worth of habits to you in short info bits and daily actions.

Incorporating Dr. Amen’s tiny habits and practices will help you:

  • Manage your mind to support your happiness, inner peace, and success
  • Develop lifelong strategies for dealing with whatever stresses come your way
  • Create an ongoing sense of purpose in a way that informs your daily actions
  • Learn major life lessons Dr. Amen has gleaned from studying hundreds of thousands of brain scans

As a psychiatrist and clinical neuroscientist, Dr. Amen has collected the world’s largest database of brain scans for psychiatry. This totals more than 210,000 SPECT scans on patients from 155 countries. This has been key to going beyond what he learned as a psychiatrist. Actually observing “the organ” in question has been a game changer for his mission to end mental illness by creating a revolution in brain health.

This is Dr. Amen’s sixth time on the podcast and he doesn’t disappoint. He teaches you how your gut affects your thinking, how mental health is really brain health, and how measuring brain function is tied to mitochondrial function.

A key innovator in the world of brain health, Dr. Amen completely shifts the paradigm of understanding what’s happening in your brain. His new book is a must-have for anyone who values both their brain function and mental health.

“There is nowhere in school where school teaches you to manage your mind. Nowhere. And that's insane.”
