Finding Meaning, Analyzing Past Failures, Socratic Questioning, Meditation and Sex, Art Therapy
In this episode, I share studies on how meaning and purpose can combat financial stress, why we should analyze our past failures, why focusing too much on “I” is a sign of negativity, the importance of “socratic questioning” to challenge our beliefs, how meditation improves sex, and how taking art classes is good for your mental health.
Self-Defeating Humor, Materialism and Marriage, Pessimism, Favorite Songs, Holding Hands, Nostalgia
In this second episode of “Talking to Myself,” I share some new studies on self-defeating humor and psychological well-being, how materialism hurts marriages, empathizing with positive emotions, the benefits of pessimistic thinking, why you should listen to your favorite song over and over, how holding hands can sync brainwaves, how nostalgia can help with loneliness, and why turning 30 can be a motivating time.
Nature, Body Image, Writing and Sleeping, Saunas, Mindfulness and Kindness, Social Anxiety
In this first episode of "Talking to Myself," I share some big announcements about my new book deal, as well as some interesting studies on nature and body image, writing and sleeping, sauna bathing, mindfulness and kindness, and the relationship between volunteering and self-esteem. I also answer some of your guys questions on Twitter, including questions on social media and social skills, how to manage an anxiety episode, the effect of pornography on our minds, how to get "revenge" on people who hurt you, forgiving others, and the difference between psychology and neuroscience.

Entrepreneurship, Side Hustles, and Getting Noticed in a Crowded World (Dorie Clark)
Dorie Clark is a marketing strategy consultant, professional speaker, contributor to Harvard Business Review, and the author of the new book "Entrepreneurial You." In this chat, we discuss how anyone can become an entrepreneur in their own way, the importance of having side projects, how to identify ways you can add value to people's lives, and how to cut through the noise and competition to get noticed in the real world. We also talk about the difference between selling products/services vs. asking for donations, how technology and automation will change the job market, and why "soft skills" like creativity and social skills are less replaceable than pure technical expertise.

Make Kindness Cool Again: Practical Ways to Build a Newer, Nicer World (Tara Cousineau)
Tara Cousineau is a clinical psychologist and author of the book "The Kindness Cure." In this chat, we discuss the current state of kindness (and cruelty) in our world and practical ways we can make kindness cool again. One big factor is how the internet and social media shape what we see in the world (with an emphasis on negative news) - this can lead to a "cool to be cruel" mentality. We also talk about the importance of both mindfulness and forgiveness when overriding our old impulses and instincts, and how this relates to being a kinder and nicer person in the future.
