Is the rise in depression, anxiety and suicide amongst our kids really just because we are talking more about it? This episode lays it out so well. It's hard to admit it but it's partly us. Us as society have forgotten to give kids free range and are increasingly coddling them unintentionally. This episode made me take a good look at how I am as a caregiver and someone that works closely with kids.
This sent chills down my spine because it honestly is my worse nightmare. The tips from this is SO useful. Knowledge is power and when someone is in an unfortunate incident like this, it is so important to be able to tap into this knowledge and survive. I loved how they talked about how we are the only creatures who don't run when we sense fear. Such a great reminder to listen to your instincts.
Thanks for the recommendation @aliceko! What a great reminder of how our thoughts become our beliefs, our consciousness, and our unconsciousness. And this becomes our behaviour and how we carry ourselves in the external world. Loved this, "Manage your mind like it's the most important job you have."
I loved this because it serves as such a great reminder: "Some of the people that achieve the most are the ones that struggle with negativity or struggle with extraordinary challenges. Extraordinary challenges happen to those meant for an extraordinary destiny. " Because like she says, some of the most successful people who we remember in the world today like Gandhi and Oprah have gone through extraordinary challenges.
Now, I need to start at episode #1!
Wow. The takeaway: both apologizing and not apologizing is good for self-esteem. People who don't apologize take it as a form of shame and humiliating rather than restoration or repair. Listen to hear her tips on how to make a sincere apology.
This episode was captivating from the beginning and how it referred to the anti-vax debate. It was really great to hear all sides of the debate on facts and why they can't always change minds.
One takeaway: When using emotion, fear doesn't always work because it actually stops people from doing the action desired. I loved the hospital example the interviewee used.
Also, the example at the end with stomach ulcers and how the doctor experimented on himself. Pretty cool that he went against science and what the physicians believed. Great example of how social groups play a HUGE role in what we believe as true.
