Making Sense of That Voice Inside Your Head & How to Create Great Meetings
I’m sure you’ve seen construction crews sandblasting. Next time you see that - run!. This episode begins with a discussion on the problem with being around sandblasting. And it is a serious problem. Source: Dr. Paul Blanc author of “How Everyday Products Make People Sick” (https://amzn.to/3iug5Me) You know that voice inside your head? It tells you all kinds of things both good and bad. It can be a coach or a critic. Where does that voice come from? How can you use that voice to help steer your life in a positive direction? Joining me to discuss this is award-winning psychologist Ethan Kross. He’s a professor at the University of Michigan and author of the book Chatter: The Voice in Our Head, Why It Matters, and How to Harness It (https://amzn.to/38XXEwa) Meetings are often described as a “necessary evil” at work. A lot of us dread them because they often don’t seem to accomplish much and waste a lot of time. But maybe it doesn’t have to be that way. That’s certainly the view of my guest Mamie Kanfer Stewart. She is founder of a company called Meeteor (www.meeteor.com) which helps companies improve the quality of meetings and she is co author of the book Momentum: Creating Effective, Engaging and Enjoyable Meetings (https://amzn.to/2XXL2yT). Listen as she offers some great strategies to make your meeting more productive and engaging. When was the last time you checked your tires? Your tires can lose about half their pressure before they even start to look flat. Having underinflated tires can cause all kinds of problems and cost a lot of money. Listen as I explain how often you should check and how much air to put in them.

Tara Brach | Wisdom For Anxious Times
My guest today, Tara Brach, has been one of my teachers for years, though she never knew it. Back in the early days of podcasting, I stumbled upon her weekly dharma talks or Buddhist teachings and meditations that she’d offer at her Insight Meditation Center in DC, record, then air as podcasts, and the blend of her gentle presence, her deep wisdom that was clearly not just studied, but also lived, her humility, real-world sensibility, and humor drew me in. Tara’s teachings blend Western psychology, she’s also a clinical psychologist, along wtih Eastern spiritual practices, mindful attention to our inner life, and a full, compassionate engagement with our world. The result is a distinctive voice in Western Buddhism, one that offers a wise and caring approach to freeing ourselves and society from suffering. She is kindness and insight embodied, and I’ve learned so much from both her offerings and also the way she seems to move through life over the years. Which is why I was so excited to be able to spend some time going deep into not just certain pivotal moments in Tara’s path, but also the powerful tools and practices she’s developed in the name of allowing us to breathe more easily into whatever comes our way, at the core of which is something Tara shorthands with the acronym RAIN, which is transformational and we explore how it can move into our lives, especially in the context of compassion, acceptance, and what’s been going on in society these days.  You can find Tara Brach at: Website : https://www.tarabrach.com/ Instagram : https://www.instagram.com/tarabrach/ Check out our offerings & partners:  Freshly: Each Freshly meal is perfectly sized for 1 person to enjoy at 1 sitting.
