Episode 422: Loretta Breuning talks about Status Games

It’s been nearly 6 years since I first had the pleasure of speaking with Loretta Breuning. This episode has been months in the making and I’m happy to have her back to chat about her book Status Games: Why We Play and How to Stop.

Loretta is a Professor Emerita of Management at California State University and the author of many personal development books including Habits of a Happy Brain: Retrain Your Brain to Boost Your Serotonin, Dopamine, Oxytocin, and Endorphin Levels and the aforementioned Status Games: Why We Play and How to Stop. She’s the founder of the Inner Mammal Institute and has helped thousands of people make peace with their inner mammal.

During our conversation, Loretta and I talked about the role happy brain chemicals play in your status and the biology behind it. We discussed the importance of stimulating your serotonin to achieve your highest productivity levels in life and in the workplace and about wiring in new choices towards your best step confidently and navigating a healthy serotonin mindset.

Loretta brings an interesting comparison of human and animal behaviour and how we can train our brains to boost these happy chemicals. 

It is a pleasure having her on the show once again. I hope you enjoy our latest conversation. I know I did.
