Looking Up with Dr. Deepika Chopra

Jul 27, 2020

Why is it that we recall negative memories so much more clearly than the good ones? Why do some of us prefer vanilla while others live for chocolate? And can modern science answer these questions on its own, or does ancient wisdom still play a role? These are just some of the questions featured in this episode of Looking Up with Dr. Deepika Chopra. Our guest, Dr. Rick Hanson, helps explore these questions, digging deep into the neuroscience of optimism and sharing his personal experience with mindfulness practices. We learn that no matter how bad the past or present is, we can always grow from the point we’re at now and the practical tools it takes to get there.
