    The Meanest Voice You Know “Yourself” (How to Silence Your Harsh Critic)
    We've all got an inner voice, a constant companion whispering commentary on our every move. But for many of us, that voice has turned into a harsh critic, relentlessly judging and belittling us. This podcast, "The Meanest Voice You Know: Yourself (How to Silence Your Harsh Critic)," explores the origins of this self-sabotaging behavior and offers practical strategies for taming your inner judge.

    #489 The Pursuit of Peace (and Why My Brain Keeps Getting in the Way)

    The Pursuit of Peace (and Why My Brain Keeps Getting in the Way)
    We've all experienced the frustrating paradox: we know what habits and practices would bring us closer to emotional well-being, yet we often find ourselves doing the opposite. We understand the importance of mindfulness, healthy boundaries, or simply taking a break, but our brains seem to have other plans. This isn't simply a matter of willpower or laziness; there are complex psychological factors at play. Our brains are wired for survival, not necessarily happiness, and sometimes our deeply ingrained patterns and coping mechanisms steer us towards familiar discomfort. We may fear change, feel unworthy of peace, or simply be overwhelmed by the effort required to shift our habits. Understanding these barriers is the first step towards overcoming them and creating a life that aligns with our deepest desires for inner peace and happiness.

    #487 The Joy of Less: The Anticipation Trap

    #487 The Joy of Less: The Anticipation Trap

    The Joy of Less: The Anticipation Trap
    Expectations are a double-edged sword. While they can motivate us to achieve our goals, they can also lead to disappointment and dissatisfaction if they are not met. Often, when our expectations are met, we merely feel like we've broken even, rather than exceeded anything. This is due to our tendency to adapt to new levels of pleasure or success, and the constant comparison we make to others. 
    However, by understanding the nature of expectations, setting realistic goals,and embracing a "good enough" mindset, we can free ourselves from the trap of constantly chasing after the next thing and find more contentment in the present moment. By managing expectations and focusing on the journey, not just the destination, we open ourselves up to the possibility of exceeding our own expectations and those of others, leading to even greater rewards and satisfaction.

This podcast is truly amazing and beneficial! Listening to Dr. Puff helps me to alleviate my anxiety every time. I find it comparable to a mini-therapy session that offers me support during challenging times.

Silver lining

One step at a time, one breath at a time, has become my mantra in my toughest moments.
I can’t be enough thankful to Dr, Puff. The podcast’s teachings illuminate my path from million miles away. Each episode of the podcast has a profound eye-opening impact on my life. Thank you Dr, Puff.

BlickenrayTheP ,

Game changer

I’m a big fan of eckhart tolle and his books the power of now and a new earth. Dr Puff’s podcast is like listening to those books in small real world practical chunks. After getting tired of listening to the same audiobook over and over, these fresh podcasts keep me interested and reminded of how to be present and maintain my mental health. This podcast has reduced my need for 1:1 therapy/counseling sessions as well as it is always available 24/7. Thank you Dr Puff you have changed my life!
