Todd’s Sunday Read

For the past two years I have been working in retail and I rarely get a Sunday morning off. Today was one of those rare days off without travel or other plans so I’m enjoying my idea of a perfect Sunday morning complete with good coffee and rye toast (breakfast of eggs and sausage coming up soon).

With all due respect to my friend David Amerland, here’s my version of perfect content for a Sunday Morning!

After reading David Amerland’s Sunday Read, listening to The One You Feed and Tara Brach, I’m usually looking for some lighter fare — that’s when Sarah von Bargen’s Web Time Wasters fits in! Follow the link:

So proud to call Ilhan Omar one of Minnesota’s own! Fellow Minnesotans: remember to vote in the primary on Tuesday! Here’s everything you need to know about the candidates and races.  How was your week, friends? I crossed ‘hammock camping’ off my New Things List and was surprised to discover I liked it!

Jusdon Brewer: The Craving Mind via @oneyoufeed

Judson Brewer MD PhD is widely considered an expert in the areas of habit change, the “science of self-mastery” and mindfulness training for addiction. He has published a number of peer-reviewed articles and book chapters, he has trained US Olympic coaches, and his work has been featured on 60 Minutes, TEDMED, Time, Forbes, BBC, NPR, Businessweek and others. So – you get the idea…this guy knows what he’s talking about and what he’s talking about is fascinating. It’s a very different approach to ridding yourself of addiction and it works. it works much better than even currently accepted “gold standard programs” and it’s something you can learn how to do today. In fact, you can learn how to do it by listening to this episode. Go to the source: Jusdon Brewer: The Craving Mind – The One You Feed

The Neuroscience of Romance shows that we are as hardwired to fall out of love as into it: Romance

Do follow the link and read, not only David’s article but consume every article and video he refers to. I warn you — it may take over an hour — but, every single article is worthy of your attention. David is to me the most amazing of human beings; he is smart, articulate AND kind. While you might sometimes find two of the three someone like David does not come along often and for what it’s worth, I want to share his thinking with you…

Here’s a list of all the articles to which he refers:

It made me tired just to create this list. Thank you, David, for your work…

What Neuroscience Tells Us About Being in Love

“How on earth are you ever going to explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love?—Albert Einstein

Einstein was correct—science will never clinically sterilize the wonderment of love (first or otherwise). But I think he’d also agree that it’s a mistake to confuse increased understanding with diminished meaning. No matter what we learn about love, it will continue to be one of the most meaningful and powerful forces on the planet, as it should be. With that disclaimer, let’s jump in and discover what we’ve learned so far: What Neuroscience Tells Us About Being in Love | Psychology Today

The Neuroscience of Love

The Neuroscience of Love

Love’s been around a long time. As an evolutionary anthropologist Dr Machin is fascinated by what makes us fall in love and what keeps us there. In this talk she will use the results of cutting edge research in the fields of neuroscience, genetics, evolutionary theory and psychology to explain what happens in our brains when we fall in love and how this affects how we feel and behave when we are in love: King’s College London – The Neuroscience of Love
