When You Think You Know What you Don’t Know

Have you ever looked back in a time of your life where you thought you knew more than you actually knew? This can pertain to prejudices, judgments, and unsubstantiated thoughts that place barriers for growth and connection. This can be devastating on so many levels, but it doesn’t have to be.
Today’s episode I read an excerpt from my book, Conversations for Good, where I share a personal wake up call I experienced on a layover in Bahrain. Lessons learned and insight gained.

Undercover Kindness

The simple act of kindness has both physical and emotional benefits. It impacts our mindset, increases energy, lowers blood pressure, and can even have cardiovascular benefits.

We’ve heard about the act of kindness, but what about pursuing undercover kindness? The pursuit of encouraging and spreading kind actions to others without them knowing who was on the other end? This no strings attached pursuit has the ability to strengthen our mental wellness, physical state, and mindset.

Dealing with Mid-COVID stress

Trevor Steinhauser, the host of the Stigmatized Podcast, joins
me to look at the funky weird state we’re in mid-COVID and its bearing
on our mental wellness.

Do you feel like your super over COVID even though we’re not over COVID?
Are you tired, frustrated, and in need of a self-care recharge?

The reality is that it’s ok to not feel ok, that you may be desperately missing normalcy or having a sense of uncertainty with your social, personal, and work-life when it comes to COVID.

We have teachers uncertain about what their classroom is going to look like. There are parents on edge about how to respond with the upcoming school year. The countless struggling with heightened anxiety and depression with the impending uncertainty of what to expect with work, traveling, socializing, and simply dealing with everyday life.

Trevor and I chat on ways to identify when we’re not in a good place and look at ways to strengthen our mental wellness and get in a flow that works for us.

Listening & Learning from Others: Conversations from India, Indonesia & Israel

This week’s pod is about pursuing a willingness to pause and listen to the life experiences of people different from ourselves. It’s valuing the views and outlook of people beyond our little bubble; whether they live in our own town or halfway around the world this pursuit can help us reach that place of peace and community with our neighbors that we are all craving deep down.
Listening, learning, and gaining insight can allow us to grow. We don’t have to agree on everything…or even most things, but just listening, with a humble heart, is a way to give back to our fellow humans.
