    Clinical psychologist and couples therapist, Michaela Thomas, talks to us about how to build a healthy relationship, why our relationship with ourself is the cornerstone of true connection and how to navigate the pressure for perfection.

    Controlling the inner critic

    Controlling the inner critic

    We talk to psychologist Ethan Kross – a world expert on controlling the conscious mind – on how we can harness the ongoing chatter in our heads, the ongoing internal conversation, to silence streams of self-doubt from our inner critic. From how ruminating on negative thoughts impacts on our relationships, work, physical health and stress levels; to why venting our emotions isn’t the answer and the tools we need to stop ruminating on negativity and catastrophising.

    Finding Healthy Routines with Dr Chatterjee

    We talk to Dr Rangan Chatterjee on finding healthy habits, why we need to move away from quick fixes and why we need to look after ourselves as a whole; from finding a healthy weight and stopping yo-yo dieting to the role of sleep and bedtime routines, moving our bodies, morning rituals, getting outside and the impact of stress.

    Why do we see the bad more often than the good?

    Why do we see the bad more often than the good?

    Why do we respond more to the negative over the positive; to criticism more than praise? Why do we worry so much? How can we stop our negative thought patterns? Science shows this negative thinking is innate, it’s our negativity bias and it explains why negative events and emotions affect us more strongly than positive ones. Our guests today, John Tierney and Roy Baumeister, explain why our brains work in this way and how we can recognise the negativity effect and break destructive patterns.

Just the best!

This podcast was literally one of my best discoveries last year. Honest, informative, well-researched content delivered in a way which doesn't discriminate or cast judgement. Ella in particular is a beautiful soul who's manner of speaking is gentle and filled passion. The world needs more content like this, as we say in NZ, kai pai to the Mills!
