In this episode of the Align Podcast, Dr. Amen and I discuss the stigma towards mental illness and how it makes those who are suffering feel ashamed, which can worsen their symptoms and conditions. While most doctors might look at mental illness as a simple diagnosis, Dr. Amen was thought to think of people going through these health conditions not as someone with a diagnosis, but as a whole by considering the four circles of life; biological, psychological, social, and spiritual.

Plus, we also talk about how to deal with negative thoughts and a negative mindset. The first thing is to be able to detach ourselves from our thoughts, so we can deeply question them. Then, it is important to live with the end, meaning death, in mind. This way, we are much more likely to be present and take advantage of the now.
