    Jay and His Wife Radhi ON: Knowing Your Strengths, Respecting Each Other’s Boundaries & Growing as a Couple

    Jay and His Wife Radhi ON: Knowing Your Strengths, Respecting Each Other’s Boundaries & Growing as a Couple

    Radhi and Jay Shetty sit down to talk about a very special project they have been working on together for the past 18 months, their ‘quarantine baby’ - Sama Tea! In Sanskrit, Sama means to be fully balanced. It can also mean togetherness, equality, and oneness. Because, ultimately, a life in the present is a more balanced life, a more connected life, and a happier one too. 

    Together they share how Sama was conceptualized, the different teams that worked together to help create the brand, the potions and ingredients that went through several stages and taste-testing to find the best blends, and how Sama is made to help anyone live in the moment and in-tune with their surroundings.

    Sama Tea is now available! Go to http://samatea.com/onpurpose to order a box of Sama now and get access to our free live monthly tea parties, be the first to try out new tea flavors and receive a free exclusive download that shows my personal routine and rituals.

    3 Personality Types In Relationships and How To Create A Powerful Connection With Someone

    3 Personality Types In Relationships and How To Create A Powerful Connection With Someone

    Who do you identify as in your relationship? Are you often in the “I need to fix this” mode? Or do you prefer to be taken care of or to be told what to do most of the time? Perhaps, you are more of a supporting pillar to your partner, always there to offer help in any way possible. 

    Our actions and reactions to situations and instances may differ on who you are with, but our personality will always be the same. And this trait that we have might help us work out our relationships or break them because of differences.    

    In this episode of On Purpose, Jay Shetty discusses the three personality types that are common in most relationships and what it means for you and your partner.

    Sama Tea is now available! Go to http://samatea.com/onpurpose to order a box of Sama now and get access to our free live monthly tea parties, be the first to try out new tea flavors and receive a free exclusive download that shows my personal routine and rituals.

    03:29 The three role type we play in a relationship

    06:43 Personality #2: The Fragile
    07:42 Personality #3: The Partner
    08:56 How will you know that you’re a fixer?
    14:32 Detach from your fixer tendencies
    16:15 Are you the fragile type?
    20:13 Here’s how to get out of the fragile mentality

    Dr. Nicole LePera ON: Why You Feel Stuck in Your Past & Finding the Self-Awareness to Heal From Trauma

    Dr. Nicole LePera chats with Jay Shetty to talk about trauma as the root of all mental health problems. They discuss how one can utilize their own environment to self heal, why people are stuck with the same adaptive mechanism that doesn’t help them change, and taking many small steps on our way to complete healing.

    Dr. Nicole, a trained clinical psychologist, created the SelfHealers Circle to allow people to go on their own journey and create who they want to become. Dr. Nicole lives in Los Angeles, California and loves anywhere that involves the stillness (and quiet) of nature. She currently hosts the SelfHealers Soundboard podcast with Jenna Weakland focused on recognizing patterns, healing from the past, and creating oneself.

    9 Ways To Get Comfortable Doing Uncomfortable Things and Growing Through It

    9 Ways To Get Comfortable Doing Uncomfortable Things and Growing Through It

    Perhaps, it is easier to tell someone to be brave and to do something they haven’t done before. It’s easier to be that encouraging voice on the side cheering for them. But it isn’t as easy when you’re at the receiving end, when you’re the one being encouraged to do something you’re uncomfortable doing.

    It takes courage and an open mind to do something you’re hesitant to do because it’s outside of your comfort zone, especially when it’s something you never thought of doing out of fear of failing or getting rejected. 

    In this episode of On Purpose, Jay Shetty talks about how doing small uncomfortable things can gradually lead you to embracing changes and improving yourself. 

    Go to http://samatea.com/onpurpose to get on the list for early access + receive a free 5-Minute Wellness Journal made to help guide you through your wellness journey and daily routine

    Key Takeaways:
    00:00 Intro
    02:49 How to become comfortable with the uncomfortable?
    06:05 Principle #1: Start small, do not go for the big things right away
    08:29 Principle #2: Slow down, pause and reflect
    12:11 Principle #3: Do one uncomfortable thing yearly
    14:15 Principle #4: Surround yourself with people that do uncomfortable things
    15:57 Principle #5: Know that it’s okay to fail
    17:56 Principle #6: Measure the miniscule improvement
    20:06 Principle #7: Say you don’t know anything when you only know a little

Learning about who am I for real🙏🏻

I started listening to your podcast about 9 months ago bcoz I was facing some issues in my marriage. Though their is no answer to how to come to a solution or conclusion but your podcasts gives me strength and peace. It just takes my mind away from everything I am dealing with. I wish if you could help me to cross that thin line between make up or break up, as that the toughest one. I wish you all the best and thank you for these podcast which is like a ray of hope for people like me who needs motivation on a day to day basis.
