    The Art and Science of Listening | Kate Murphy

    The Art and Science of Listening | Kate Murphy

    Kate Murphy is a Houston, TX-based reporter whose writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Economist, Agence France-Presse, and Texas Monthly. Her book, You're Not Listening is equal parts cultural observation, scientific exploration, and a rousing call to action that's full of practical advice. Murphy explains why we’re not listening, what it’s doing to us, and how we can reverse the trend. She makes accessible the psychology, neuroscience, and sociology of listening while also introducing us to some of the best listeners out there (including a CIA agent, focus group moderator, bartender, radio producer, and top furniture salesman). It’s time to stop talking and start listening.

    20 Tools to Tame Anxiety | Emiliya Zhivotovskaya

    20 Tools to Tame Anxiety | Emiliya Zhivotovskaya

    Anxiety is at an all-time high right now, and there are valid reasons for concern. At the same time, most of us have more control over how we experience this moment, psychologically and emotionally, than we realize. There are many practical, accessible ways to reduce anxiety and move away from panic.

    This is why we asked longtime collaborator and wellbeing advisor, Emiliya Zhivotovskaya, to help us better understand anxiety, and walk us through 20 highly-specific tools and techniques to reduce anxiety and bring yourself back to a place of relative ease and calm, no matter how groundless or anxiety-provoking the world around you may feel in this moment.

    Emiliya is the CEO and founder of The Flourishing Center, a New York City-based, B-Corp dedicated to increasing the flourishing of individuals, organizations, and communities. She is the creator of the Certification in Applied Positive Psychology, the Bounce Back Better® training on resilience, Positive Psychology Coaching Certification, the Flourishing Skills Group, and is the co-founder of the Positive Educator Certification™ Program. Emiliya holds a Master’s Degree from the University of Pennsylvania in Positive Psychology and is currently pursuing her Ph.D. in Mind-Body Medicine and is also an adjunct faculty member.  

    As always, these tools and techniques can be incredibly useful, but we are not in a position to make specific medical or mental health recommendations for any one individual, we strongly suggest consulting a qualified mental health professional to better understand the most appropriate actions to take for your unique needs. 

    Last quick note. Our whole team wants you to know that we so appreciate you, we will continue producing this show to the best of our abilities (though we are moving to a remote recording format in order to honor the need for safety), we love you and look forward to continuing to be of service as we all move through this challenging time together. 

    Here is a link to the references we mentioned in this episode.
