  • The Power of Micro-habits for Brain Improvement

Things to Remember

“Parenting starts with showing radical self-compassion to yourself first.”

“Sometimes as children, intuitively, we know what’s going to happen in the future.”  

“We can love what we’re doing and still have mental health challenges and burnout.”

“Diet is a four-letter curse word in a brain shift community.”

“A child of any age can sense your anxiety.”  

“Your brain is not broken, your mind is not a mess, and your spirit did not depart your soul. Just take our hand, and let’s brain shift together.”

― Dr. Romie
