    #119 Shhh - I'm Meditating "10% Happier" By Dan Harris

    #119 Shhh - I'm Meditating "10% Happier" By Dan Harris

    www.feelgoodenglish.com 
    To start this episode, let me ask you something. Do you have a voice inside your head? Like, do you have “something” inside of you that speaks to you? As weird as that sounds, I bet you do.
    And I’m not talking about “hearing voices” in your head, like a crazy person might, but just that self-talk we all have that guides us, or at least tries really hard to guide us. It’s that voice inside us that starts having a conversation as soon as we open our eyes in the morning. The voice is obsessed with the past, and also obsessed with the future.
    So is that voice us? Is that who we are? Or is it just part of us? And is there a way to tame this voice? To not be blindly controlled by it?
    I recently read a book that was recommended by one of my students. The book is called “10% Happier” by Dan Harris. This book attempts to convince skeptics on the benefits of meditation, by taking a very practical approach to the science behind this mindfulness practice, and showing you how and why letting go of your ego is important for living a stress-free life.
    So that voice in your head, we can refer to that as the ego. E-G-O. I’ve talked about the ego before. It can get in your way, make you do dumb things, and keep you from connecting with others on a deeper level.
    And the author of this book talks a lot about the experiences that led him to discover the benefits of meditation, but I’ll just sum it up so we can focus more on what meditation is and how you can start doing it, if you don’t meditate that is.

    #118 How to Actually Live a Better Life - "A Guide to the Good Life"

    #118 How to Actually Live a Better Life - "A Guide to the Good Life"

    Get the transcript at www.feelgoodenglish.com
    Today I’m going to teach you a lesson from a book called “A Guide to the Good Life: The Ancient Art of Stoic Joy” by William Braxton Irvine. In this book, Irvine offers a refreshing presentation of Stoicism, showing how this ancient philosophy can still direct us toward a better life.
    I’m only going to share one lesson from this book, a lesson on how to
    get through the grocery store checkout line much faster, just kidding,
    but one very valuable lesson which will show you how the teachings of
    Stoicism can help us be little more grounded in today’s crazy world.
    Before I get into that, if you’re new here, or aren’t that new but still only put Feel Good English in your ears, I also have something for your eyes.

    Something to read, as I send out weekly emails that contain short
    interesting thoughts to thousands of interested English learners. If you
    want to receive those weekly emails, go to feelgoodenglish.com and
    look for the bear. The bear will be waiting for you on my website to help you sign up. The bear works for me for free, and the email is free too!
    Isn’t that nice? Now enough bear talk, let’s get into the lesson.

    #117 The Dumb Things We All Do - "Predictably Irrational" by Dan Ariely

    #117 The Dumb Things We All Do - "Predictably Irrational" by Dan Ariely

    Today I have some ideas from a very interesting book called “Predictably Irrational” by Dan Ariely. And the main point in this book, the overall message is that much of our behavior is misguided, irrational. Through research and study, the author has found that a lot of this irrational behavior is also predictable, which means there are very human, and natural reasons we behave this way.

    #116 How to Be Yourself - "Psycho-Cybernetics" by Maxwell Maltz

    #116 How to Be Yourself - "Psycho-Cybernetics" by Maxwell Maltz

    Get the transcript at www.feelgoodenglish.com/go
    To get started with today’s topic, I got a question for you. What kind of person are you? Are you motivated? Are you lazy? Are you always running late? Are you a leader or a follower? Are you good at sports? And where did those beliefs come from? A former teacher, your friends who have labeled you a certain way, or maybe simply from yourself?
    We all have an image of the type of person we are. Some of these images are positive, but some are detrimental to moving forward and making positive changes. We use stories to understand the world, but sometimes we can make ourselves the villain without thinking twice about the consequences of that narrative.
    For example, if you think of yourself as a failure, you’ll quite likely fail. Conversely, if you consider yourself successful, you’ll find ways to succeed. If you think you’re bad at learning languages, well, you might subconsciously resist becoming a great English speaker. That’s dangerous.
    And that’s the basic idea from the book I recently read, how our self image dictates our behavior. The book is called “Psycho-Cybernetics” by Maxwell Maltz. It was published in 1960, so it’s been around a few years, but the book is great. I read a lot, obviously, and i read a lot of regurgitated ideas. People take some basic self-help ideas and write their own book about them. Put their name on them. Nothing really special there. But this book, even though it’s from many decades ago, I found plenty of interesting ideas I hadn’t thought of or read about before.
    I’m going to focus on one chapter in this book; keep it simple. The ideas in this chapter stuck out to me the most and I want to share them with you because I think they’re so relevant to not just life in general, but to speaking a foreign language. Here I go again, connecting life lessons with English learning. You ready?
