The Eplerian Philosophy is a modern-day life philosophy based on brain science defined as “know who you are moment by moment.” This means know your brain region. Learn to stay out of the bad regions and move to the good. It's a new healthy way of life for controlling stress, and for high energy, creativity and enjoyment.
Science has shown there are several different independent brain regions not communicating with each other, and people can only think from one specialized brain region at a time. Thinking from some regions like the prefrontal cortex, creative center and positive relationship center result in a healthy and productive outcome. Two others, the amygdala anger center and the cingulate self-thinking region, result in poor health, decreased productivity, lack of innovation, and disconnection from the community.
Applications of the Eplerian philosophy include a healthy posture and healthy nutrition moment by moment.
Additional applications include learning how to eliminate the harmful effects of stress by managing anger, fear, sadness, worry and anxiety.
The philosophy will help manage the many types of self-centered thinking including self-criticism, self-pity, resentment, jealously, revenge, judgment and blame.
The philosophy is a business model for breakthrough leadership, increased productivity and innovation for executives, managers and employees.
The Eplerian philosophy is for people to live their best lives at home, at work and in the community.
