    Optimism as a Purposeful Act with Bill Burke

    Optimism as a Purposeful Act with Bill Burke

    On this episode of Go Help Yourself, Lisa and Misty are joined by special guest Bill Burke, founder of The Optimism Institute. This conversation covers all things optimism, including the relationship between dissatisfaction and optimism, how optimism contributes to personal resilience, and how (and why) to cultivate optimism as a purposeful act.
    About Bill:
    Bill Burke founded The Optimism Institute in 2022 after an extensive media and sports career as an executive, writer, and producer. Bill served as CEO of The Weather Channel Companies after several years at Time Warner/Turner Broadcasting System, where he was the founding general manager of Turner Classic Movies before going on to become president of TBS Superstation. 
    Additionally, for fifteen years he was the co-owner and chairman of the Portland Sea Dogs, the double-A Minor League Baseball affiliate of the Boston Red Sox.
    As a writer, Bill co-authored Ted Turner’s top-10 New YorkTimes Best-Selling autobiography Call Me Ted and later co-wrote/produced/directed “Live Another Day,” an award winning feature-length documentary on the bailout of the U.S. auto industry.
    Bill is a lifelong optimist (he has to be - he’s a Detroit Lions fan) and launched The Optimism Institute with a mission to inspire people with an optimistic, hopeful vision of the world and its future.
    To that end, Bill is also the host of the podcast Blue Sky, a weekly podcast featuring inspiring leaders, authors, researchers, and big thinkers who are taking on some of our world’s toughest challenges with an infectious sense of optimism.

    Energy Balancing Yoga Nidra Meditation with Nadine Dalati

    On this special episode of Go Help Yourself, friend of the podcast Nadine Dalati guides listeners through a soothing Yoga Nidra meditation.
    Yoga Nidra is a relaxation technique that combines guided mental imagery with the yoga pose "corpse pose" (Shavasana) while lying on your back. The goal is to achieve a deep state of relaxation that's different from sleep because you're still aware of your surroundings. It's also known as "yogic sleep" or "effortless relaxation."
    Benefits of Yoga Nidra include body and mind relaxation, reduced stress, improved sleep, and mental clarity.
    Nadine Dalati, with over three decades of life experience and extensive travel across the globe, has dedicated her journey to helping people heal. Specializing in holistic breath and bodywork, Nadine facilitates transformative one-on-one sessions and leads group practices that offer deep relief for physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
    Using a trauma-informed approach, Nadine expertly guides individuals to uncover the root of their pain, make peace with it, and transform it into a source of strength. Her compassionate and insightful guidance helps clients overcome their blocks and thrive.
    Nadine is passionate about sharing these powerful tools with those ready to embrace change and achieve a higher state of wellness.
    You can learn more about Nadine or book a healing bodywork session with her at her website or on her Yelp page.
