The Ship Inside Your Head
Three Brains, Not One
We all experience those frustrating mismatches between what we think, feel and do:
- Wanting to plan something but lacking focus and overview.
- Being unable to make a simple decision
- Telling yourself things you don’t really believe.
- Believing things you know aren’t true.
- Being angry and scared at the same time, and berating yourself for feeling that way.
- Indulging in food, drink and other diversions when you know you shouldn’t…
…the list goes on and on.
The reason for those mismatches becomes clearer when you realise that every person has THREE brains, not just one. Each of these brains has their own tasks and responsibilities to keep our body functional. Just like the Crew of Ship:
Each brain – each Crew Member – has their own qualities, weaknesses, and their own way to interpret and respond to the world around us. When working together, these three unique voices define our personality.
When Your Crew Doesn’t Work Together…
Different as they are, our Crew doesn’t always get along. When they fight one another, our thoughts, feelings and behaviour contradict each other. Instead of confident and determined, we become frustrated, anxious, and disappointed. In short, we experience stress.
Stress is a inevitable part of life, but left unresolved and unaddressed, it can begin to fester. Over time, prolonged stress can cause anxiety, depression, and worse.
The bottom of this funnel is where I spent 20 years of my life, and I know from experience that even that hopeless situation can turn around!
