. As we evolved we upgraded our brains, but we still run a very primitive brain, the original part of our brain that is structurally very similar to other animals. .
. This brain only operates within the very primitive parameters of anxiety, anger and depression and often a mix of all three. .
.How do you know if you’re in your primitive brain? If you find yourself going from zero to disaster in less than 5 seconds, chances are, this part of your brain is in control. That was fine when we lived in jungles and caves but not great for living your life now.
