Can understanding your brain type unlock the secret to happiness?

When it comes to brain health, happiness is a profoundly important topic. But what exactly is happiness? And what does your brain type have to do with finding it?

To dive deeper into this topic, we’re thrilled to have Dr. Daniel Amen back on our show. Dr. Amen is a physician, double-board certified psychiatrist, and founder of Amen Clinics and BrainMD.
