    Episode 32: Bridging the political divide with dialectical thinking
    (By Dayna Mason)

    Political issues are rarely simple. Polarized thinking keeps us from seeing these issues as they often are: complex and nuanced. Thinking in extremes, an all-or-nothing, black-or-white mindset, doesn’t allow us to find the middle ground. When we seek to understand another’s viewpoint, we bridge the gap between our opposing positions. This not only brings peace to a contentious interaction but can lead to the discovery of an alternative view that we hadn’t even considered.

    Episode 31: Gratitude: Complaint free approach to life
    (By Dayna Mason)

    Our thoughts produce our beliefs, and our beliefs determine our behavior. When we repeatedly complain or engage in gossip, we wire our brains for negativity. Negativity becomes a habit that not only dampens our mood but prevents us from seeing the good even when it’s right in front of us. Gratitude highlights the good that is already in our lives and promotes confidence in more good things to come.

    Episode 30: Is fear getting in the way of your best life?
    (By Dayna Mason)

    Whether it’s the outcome of the upcoming presidential election, the projections of the pandemic on our economy, or anticipating the consequences of a mistake we’ve made, the feeling is the same: We are not safe. When we’re fueled by fear, we are motivated to take action or employ avoidance to feel safe again, which inhibits optimal decision-making. This keeps us from living our best life.

    Episode 29: Good riddance to the handshake
    (By Dayna Mason)

    I’ve never enjoyed shaking hands and I hope after the pandemic is over it doesn’t make a comeback. The handshake is an often disingenuous and oddly intimate gesture for an initial engagement with someone you don’t know.

    Episode 28: Humane communication: How to have more productive conversations
    (By Dayna Mason)

    Much of what passes as conversation today is simply monologue. We may take turns talking, but no one is actually listening. I say what I want to say and while you’re talking, instead of seeking to understand, I’m thinking about what I want to say next. Productive conversation requires dialogue—the process of understanding and reasoning.

    When we are telling, we are not listening. If all we do is tell, we learn nothing. Conversations that inspire and transform require curiosity and respect.

    Episode 27: Racial Injustice: It's time for accountability and appreciation
    (By Dayna Mason)

    I’m white. I have black friends. We talk about the same things all friends talk about, relationships, children, goals, etc. We’ve never talked about racism. Until now. This week I have learned more about racism in America and in the personal lives of my friends than I’ve learned in my entire life. My heart is breaking.
