The Neuro-Bucket Method: Reprogram Yourself for Success

The Neuro-Bucket Method: Reprogram Yourself for Success

Well, this turned out to be quite an incredible webinar!

If you want to achieve your goals, be more focused and motivated, increase your confidence, and reduce overwhelm, then I highly recommend you watch it right now (scroll down to see the recording).

In order to get the most out of this workshop, I recommend you do the following:

  • Follow my instructions and do the exercises:  your results will be MUCH better if  you feel the neuro-chemicals while I’m talking about them.
  • Set the speed to 75% because (I admit) I got excited and talked faster than usual!  You can do that by clicking on the settings icon on the bottom right and selecting 75% for the speed.
  • Watch one section… take a break… and then move on to the next one.  You will find the list of sections right below the video.  Taking the time to internalize one piece at a time will allow your brain to be reprogrammed without much effort on your part.
  • Leave me feedback below this video.  I would love to know what you liked so I can do more of it in the future.

    I wanted to say thank you for sharing your vast knowledge and experience and sourcing, even more knowledge from other experts, to deliver to us on the neurochemicals webinar.

    It was brilliant.

    So much great information!

    I will have to listen to the webinar several times to really get those nuggets you shared and understand the techniques and triggers.

    Unfortunately, I couldn’t attend live as it ran 4am Sydney time.

    I am also grateful for the recording!!

      I’m so glad you liked it Michelle. This is a passion of mine and I’ll definitely be writing more about it.

    Hi Sara

    I totally loved your webinar and thank you!

    In so many ways you did not tell me anything that I had not learned in medical school but this way of looking at it is so radically different and I love it and I am so excited as it is a total game changer

    As you know I am now studying Integrative Health which is about blending the art of healing with the science of medicine

    When I think of the best things I have learned so far that on the fellowship they can all be explained by the neurochemical theory that you presented ( gratitutude journaling, heart chakra meditation, 478 breath, etc etc)

    My kids go to an IB school and live by the learner profile which can also be explained by your theory

    If I can help in anyway I would be delighted!

    Meantime I am off to live it, share it with patients and use it with my kids!

    Thank you thank you!

      Wow, I would definitely love that. Let’s talk 🙂

    Hi Sara – Thanks for putting this excellent webinar together. Much appreciated.

    Quick question – What neurochemical helps with improving memory and recall and how can I create more of it?

      by Sara Young

      Cortisol negatively affects memory, so following the neuro-bucket technique should help with that too 🙂

      Other than that, memory and recall are actually specific interests of mine and I do plan to do more research on the topic. I’ll let you know when I’ve got something interesting!

        Hi Sara,

        There is a gentleman by the name of “Jim Kwik” of “Kwik Learning” has a program called “Kwik Recall and one called “Kwik Reading”. He will be able to help you with learning more about memory and recall topics. (You might have heard of him, but just in case….)


    I wonder why sometimes I feel more empathy when Im in a depressive mood.

      by Sara Young

      Maybe when you are depressed you are looking for things to be negative about? Not sure…. but I would definitely rather feel empathy because I’ve got oxytocin in my brain than because I’m depressed. It feels much better!

    I so badly want to get the information of your webinar, but I can’t follow what you are saying. I catch only about one in three words. Your words are very unclear. Isn’t it possible to put this in writing. The only way I can get an idea of what you are saying, is by the text on the screen.

      by Sara Young

      Thanks for your feedback. I’m so sorry you can’t follow what I’m saying. Will definitely put it in writing (might take me some time to get this done, though!). In the meantime, have you tried changing the speed to 0.75? Click on the gear on the bottom right of the video, select speed, and then select 0.75


    Thanks Sara,

    Really helpful thank you so much 🙂

      by Sara Young

      Glad you liked it. Thanks for letting me know.

    Kristine Fletcher-Wode

    Thanks so much Sara – very helpful info…you mentioned a book, would you please be able to provide your Amazon link? Many thanks.

      by Sara Young

      Thanks for reminding me Kristine. I’ve added links to books to the bottom of the post.


    I absolutely loved attending the webinar. I’ve got to work on Seratonin. I think I hold myself back because I’m afraid of disappointing others. So off to go build up my feeling of authority.

      by Sara Young

      Definitely! I know how you feel because I also used to hold myself back… mostly for lack of self-confidence. It can be changed.

    Lady Yvette

    Hi Sara,

    Thank you so much for sending me the replay, the slides and additional information links to this well-presented webinar.

    I have always been inspired by the scientific between us and our Universe, and how amazing the body is.

    I’m going to see if I can get this transferred into a mp3 format so I can listen to it again and again on my daily walks.

    Thank you again for your kindness.


    I really think it can be a life changer if it’s used on a constant basis.

    I took copious notes, and the only thing I have to do is apply what I’ve learned to get my daily boost of these vital neurochemicals.

    I believe that the timing is right as I’m waiting for my first sales on Amazon after launching my new website and writing 15 articles.

    Everything I’ve learned on the webinar will definitely help me become more patient, focused, and happy as I’m waiting for my first serious results.

    I’m very grateful and indebted to you for the information you’ve shared with us.
