From Science to Aesthetics: Exploring Embryonic Stem Cells in the Cosmetic Industry Part 2

I thoroughly enjoyed the second part of my interview with life and behaviour philosopher, science guru extraordinaire, and all-round awesome dude, Dean Kilby. And I know you will love listening, too. If you haven’t listened to the first part of my interview with Dean, please do so now. Click to Listen Part 1

In the second part, we discuss the importance of our mind set, our thinking patterns and how to get to that higher and healthier level of thinking.

The good news is, it’s not difficult at all and with just a few reminders like these below, I’ve been on my way to higher level thinking since recording the episode.

  • Prioritise opportunities to talk out ideas with other people, as real thinking often happens in conversation.
  • Consider incorporating environmental stimuli that facilitate high levels of thinking, such as going for a walk in nature or spending time in silence.
  • Utilise tools like a whiteboard to help facilitate brain dumps and visual organisation of thoughts.

These actions can help facilitate deeper thinking and greater creativity, which can be difficult to achieve when solely relying on internal thought processes. By prioritising these strategies, we can all increase our capacity for generating innovative ideas and solutions.

The Power of Mindful Decision-Making

Making impulsive decisions based on our internal state can often result in negative consequences. This is especially true when we are feeling unhappy or stressed. In these situations, we are more likely to make rash decisions that can create even more problems, leading to further stress and dissatisfaction with life.

However, it's not just the immediate decision that can cause problems. It's the accumulation of issues that can make us feel overwhelmed and helpless, as if we are trapped between a rock and a hard place. This can lead to feelings of resignation and cynicism, leaving us wondering how we got to this point.

I created my Unique Beauty Affirmation cards as a gentle reminder for creating better mindsets and healthier and happier lives.  

Finally, listen here to find out how our gut microbiome makes us behave in a certain way.

Dean and I discuss a fascinating recent development around stool transplants. The idea that your gut is your second brain, is certainly gaining traction through scientific proof.

Another indicator why your overall health in important in helping you make decisions that will make you happier and healthier.
