Our Troublesome Brains

Lecture no. 2 from the course: The Science of Mindfulness: A Research-Based Path to Well-Being

Our Troublesome Brains

Taught by Professor Ronald D. Siegel | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Health,Fitness & Nutrition Courses

Here, discover how our brains are actually predisposed, evolutionarily, to psychological distress. Learn about the human “negativity bias,” and how our tendency to both anticipate and try to avoid pain leads to problems. Consider what mindfulness teaches us about the mind, and what challenges might arise in practicing mindfulness—beginning with awareness of breath.
