    Episode 199: Burnout

    In 1974 Herbert Freudenberger came up with a term that he defined as “the extinction of motivation or incentive, especially where one's devotion to a cause or relationship fails to produce the desired results.” He called it "Burnout" and is a different sort of stress to what we might normally think of.

    Episode 197: Worrying & Acceptance

    Episode 197: Worrying & Acceptance

    I've talked a lot in the past about the need to control thoughts using distractions and deliberate, forced thinking in order to create a more positive mindset. But I think it's crucial to recognise the importance of accepting our thoughts too.  Humans tend to gravitate towards the things we fear and if we fear our own thoughts then a part of us deep inside might even feel the need to focus more on them. It's as if the more we think about something the more we understand it. And the more we understand it the more control we have over it. Which is probably true if it's a tiger in the jungle but not when the thing we fear is internal, our own anxiety for example. Worrying about what makes us anxious rarely gives us any extra understanding of it. So sometimes we do need to accept our thoughts, just with a better perspective.

So helpful!

This guy’s podcast is uplifting and concise with helpful information in understanding myself and others. I start the day with my coffee and one of his past episodes to catch up to date.
He has motivated me to make small changes in my life that has made me more content and joyful.
