neuro - music vs anxiety

How to Use Music to Boost Motivation, Mood & Improve Learning | Huberman Lab Podcast - YouTube

"... your brain and body are fundamentally wired to perceive and respond to music and how those responses can be leveraged to improve your mood, allow for processing sad emotions and enhance learning and performance. 
... the data showing how music can increase motivation for cognitive or physical work, what specific music has been shown to enhance cognitive performance, and whether silence or music is more effective in enhancing focus while studying. 
...specific musical pieces can rapidly reduce anxiety, as well as certain prescription medications. 
... listening to certain types of music can improve various health metrics (e.g., heart rate). 
... music helps to enhance neuroplasticity (rewiring of brain connections), thereby improving learning and memory."

" there are data that have explored whether or not specific musical stimuli
can be used to significantly reduce anxiety in particular

one published out of the University of Pennsylvania
shows that people that listen to a particular song
experience up to 65 percent reductions in their anxiety

that's a significant reduction in anxiety
was accomplished with just three minutes of listening to this one particular song:"

The Mindful Body: Thinking Our Way to Chronic Health: Langer, Ellen J.: 9780593497944: Books

Mindful = "Actively noticing"
adopt mindset for uncertainty: everything is constantly changing

Ellen Langer - Wikipedia

The Mindful Body by Ellen J. Langer: 9780593497944 | Books

"In The Mindful Body, Dr. Langer unpacks her assumption-busting findings and outlines her bold new theory of mind-body unity, along the way clearly demonstrating how our thoughts and perspectives have the potential to profoundly shape our well-being. Whether it is hotel chambermaids who lost weight when they simply came to see that their work constituted exercise, or patients whose wounds healed faster in rooms with accelerated clocks, she shows how influential our thoughts are to the state of our bodies. Her work has likewise proven that discouraging health news can have negative effects. Learning you are prediabetic, for example—even if your blood sugar reading is only a fraction away from “normal”—may actually play a part in the development of the disease. A paradigm-shifting book by one of the great psychologists of the twenty-first century, The Mindful Body returns the control over our bodies back to us and reveals that a true understanding of health begins with our minds."

"science-based protocols to set and achieve your goals in a way that maximizes the likelihood of reaching them.

3 Ways Your Words Change Your Habits and Your Life - YouTube
by Dr. Benjamin Hardy

summary by ChatGPT:

The book "The Three Laws of Performance" introduces a groundbreaking concept: the idea of a "default future." This default future is not the one we desire or hope for but rather the one we expect deep down. Neuroscientists describe the brain as a prediction machine, constantly anticipating the most likely future. In this video, Dr. Benjamin Hardy, an organizational psychologist and author, explores how language influences our lives in three significant ways.

  1. Shaping Your Future: Language plays a pivotal role in shaping our expectations and perceptions of the future. This is known as generative language. For instance, Dr. Hardy discusses how tying habits to existing routines, as suggested by B.J. Fogg in "Tiny Habits," can change one's outlook on the day ahead. By saying, "It's going to be a great day" every morning when getting out of bed, he sets a positive tone, altering his expectations and influencing his behavior throughout the day. Therefore, the words we use help determine our default future.

  2. Defining Your Identity: Language doesn't just influence our future; it also shapes our identity. The way we describe ourselves and others has a profound impact on our self-perception. Dr. Hardy emphasizes the importance of using generative language when defining oneself, focusing on personal growth and potential rather than limitations. The language we use to describe ourselves and those around us contributes to our identity and influences our actions.

  3. Influencing Your Actions and Habits: Your thoughts become words, words become actions, actions become habits, and habits become your character and destiny. By thinking positively and generatively, you can set the stage for constructive actions and habits. Dr. Hardy encourages the shift from avoidance motivation to approach motivation. Instead of fixating on what we want to avoid, we should concentrate on what we want to achieve, as this change in focus can lead to proactive behaviors.

Furthermore, he highlights the power of language in reshaping our past and future selves. By consciously crafting the narrative of our past and future, we can redefine ourselves and work toward our desired future. Dr. Hardy encourages readers to be mindful of the words they use, both internally and externally, as these words play a pivotal role in shaping our perception, identity, actions, and habits.

In summary, the language we use has a profound impact on our lives. It shapes our expectations, influences our identity, and drives our actions and habits. By adopting generative language and focusing on what we want rather than what we want to avoid, we can actively work toward a future that aligns with our desires and aspirations. Language is a powerful tool that allows us to shape our own destinies.
