I Goofed!

Drinking water copy

Last evening was the first time I facilitated training in the evening in a very long time and I goofed! You see, I carried a daytime habit over into the evening. I drank water the whole time. The funny thing is, we were talking about the old brain and the new brain and the difference between the two according to Dr. William Glasser’s Choice Theory.

The old brain is the lower part of the brain located at the top of the spinal column and is responsible for our survival, food, water, air and reproduction to name a few. It is what keeps us alive and is the last part of us to die.

The new brain is the much larger part of the brain called the Cerebral Cortex and this holds our psychological needs of love and belonging, power, fun and freedom but the two brains are in constant communication with each other but I digress.

What was my goof? I drank water all evening. Why is that so bad? I was up in the night no less than three times. My old brain let me know that I needed to be up. Our discussion last evening was timely.

We talked about the implications of the old and new brain in relation to our relationships, in relation to problems with addiction and over eating. We watched a wonderful video with Lynn Sumida as she explained the Choice Theory chart and what it means to have the negative feedback loop.

Yes, there was lots of learning and lots of fun and even though I drank water all evening, it was a wonderful time full of “ ah ha” moments. Our next training session is coming up starting October 10, 2018 and registration will close October 3.
