Powered by RedCircle

You are a Purpose Chaser… but you might also be a Purpose Chaser with a busy brain! Today’s episode is all about understanding and tackling burnout, stress, and the infamous “busy brain,” and I’ve brought in my amazing real-life friend, the incredible Dr. Romie, to guide us through it all. 

Dr. Romie Mushtaq is a board-certified physician, award-winning wellness speaker, and the founder of brainSHIFT. She brings together over 20 years of authority in neurology, integrative medicine, and mindfulness to deliver programs and create cultural change. Through her high-energy, interactive talks and work as a corporate wellness consultant, she has inspired more than 1.1 million people to lead healthier, more fulfilling lives.

We’re diving even deeper into the world of mindfulness, exploring how to cure our busy brains and prevent them from sabotaging our purpose. In her recent book, The Busy Brain Cure, she unpacks the concept of stress and why wearing it as a badge of honor might not be serving us. We explore the symptoms of a busy brain, like ADHD and anxiety, and Dr. Romie provides insights into adult onset ADHD, a topic not widely understood until recent years. Plus, she introduces the SHIFT acronym, breaking down the crucial elements – Sleep, Hormones, Inflammation, Food, and Technology – that play a pivotal role in calming our busy brains. Join us as we navigate through nightly rituals, the impact of technology on our attention, and powerful reminders for your well-being and mindfulness.
