In this episode, I talk with Staci Danford about the transformative power of forgiveness and the importance of incorporating it into our daily lives. Staci, a joyful mix of positivity and neuroscience, holds a master’s degree in mind brain education and speaks publicly on gratitude, including for ABC’s “Good Morning Texas.” With over 25 years of teaching and communication experience, Staci runs the Grateful Brain, using neuroscience to promote understanding of our brain power.
Staci’s education in brain science makes her the ideal person to talk about the science of forgiveness and its effects on the mind and body. She describes how our brains create negative self-patterns that release cortisol, harming our bodies. Staci shares practical strategies to interrupt these patterns, like using your name to refocus or positive self-talk to retrain your brain.
We cannot hate ourselves into a version that we love.
During our discussion, Staci emphasizes that gratitude is about experiencing the emotion, not just saying thanks. She provides six quick ways to spark joy, including finding one good thing and describing it thoroughly.
This episode is essential for anyone seeking to unlock forgiveness and self-love. Whether you struggle with self-loathing, past trauma, or want to improve overall wellness, Staci’s insights and tips will inspire and guide your happier, healthier life journey.
Consistency is key, lasting change takes time. We have the power and we can mix a new cocktail.
