This pod cast is the 4 part to 10 seconds to happy How Do We Start Feeling Better? If you have not listened to part 1 through 3 please do that now so you aren’t lost.
Whenever you take 10 seconds to focus on something that is good and rewarding your brain will excrete those beloved chemicals of dopamine, oxytocin and serotonin. (DOS) Normally when anything positive happens your brain simply notices it, but it is no more than a blip on your radar.
Typically Dopamine,Oxytocin and Serotonin are reserved for experiences like a raise, a new car, sex, new boyfriend or girlfriend or being on vacation. But you are going to learn to retrain your brain to be aware of EVERY positive experience.. And you will surprised to see just how many amazing wonderful things surround you everyday. This new focus will start lifting your spirits in a matter of seconds, which will also lift your overall mood.
This is not positive self talk, it is different from what you have read in self-help books, and is different from therapy, or medication. Because thoughts by themselves are no match for feelings that are under the control of adrenaline and cortisol. That’s like asking a drunk to repeat the phrase “I am sober” and over and over expecting him up sober up!

At the top of her field as a motivational speaker, addiction specialist, and co-producing the David Toma show, Spironhi’s world suddenly fell apart when she was diagnosed with rapid-cycling bipolar depression. For the next six years, her journey in and out of hospitals left her tired and hopeless. But in 1996, just before giving up, she was miraculously healed of all mood swings and the bi-polar disorder disappeared. Her profound experience propelled her to discover how this could happen and if there was any scientific explanation for it. That year, neuroplasticity was confirmed, proving that the brain can change and heal itself.
Spironhi has a gift for explaining technical scientific details and getting to the heart of what holds people back from the changes they desire. She works year round doing workshops, one-on-one sessions, and speaking engagements.
