MindWhale Podcast Episode 1: Serotonin Meditation

In this very first episode, learn briefly about the neurotransmitter serotonin, how it affects your mood, and how your thoughts can increase its functioning in your brain. I also walk you through a meditation designed to improve serotonin functioning for a more pleasant mood and disposition.

This information is largely inspired by Rick Hanson’s excellent audiobook Stress-Proof Your Mind (great for laypeople and practitioners) and Paul Gilbert’s The Compassionate Mind (this one is more practitioner-level because it’s soooooo long). Both are highly recommended. (The serotonin aspect is tied in from my biochemistry background.)
