Wherever you’re at in the present, that’s what’s determining how you view your past.” [20:03] “I think commitment is kind of the jumping point from courage. You know, however committed you are too something, that’s how courageous you can be, and however courageous you can be, that’s what ultimately leads you to developing flexibility, developing competencies, trying things you’ve never done and that’s how confidence is built.” [41:07] FOLLOW BENJAMIN: Website: benjaminhardy.com Twitter: twitter.com/benjaminphardy Facebook: facebook.com/benjamin.hardy.18 Instagram: instagram.com/benjamin_hardy_phd

#146 - Guy Winch, Ph.D.: Emotional first aid and how to treat psychological injuries
Guy Winch is a psychologist, author, and co-host of the Dear Therapist podcast. In this episode, Guy speaks to the commonality of the human condition with relatable stories from his decades of therapy sessions as well as his own experience with incessant rumination in the early days of his private practice. He shares insights on what he sees as an epidemic of rumination that leads to career burnout, the consequences of social comparison heightened by social media, and the psychological impact of not recognizing success. He emphasizes the need for a “psychological medicine cabinet” and provides concrete and practical tools for treating emotional injuries. He concludes with a discussion about the widespread impact of the coronavirus pandemic on emotional health and how we can use experienced psychologists in a time when it’s especially needed. We discuss: * The unique format and impetus for Guy’s podcast with Lori Gottlieb (3:00); * How Guy pieced together the many different schools of thought in psychology to develop his own unique approach (7:45); * The most important component of successful therapy, and why it sometimes makes sense to “break the rules” (19:30); * Insights extracted from Guy’s own battle with extreme stress and anxiety around finishing his education and starting his private practice (28:15); * The epidemic of rumination, burnout, and the inability to psychologically leave work (34:15); * Antidotes to incessant rumination, and tips for transitioning from work to home to avoid burnout (41:15); * The psychology of complaining: The hidden cost of complaining incorrectly and benefits of learning how and when to complain (52:30); * The consequences of social comparison, and the impact of “failure” on emotional health (1:02:15); * How Guy helps people who struggle to acknowledge any level of success (1:07:30); * Emotional first aid: The importance of a psychological medicine cabinet for treating emotional injuries (1:19:00); * The role of therapists in normalizing the discussion of emotional injuries and illuminating the commonality of feelings (1:27:45); * The widespread impact of the coronavirus pandemic on emotional health (1:35:15); * How to properly use affirmations—a tool for treating psychological injuries (1:42:00); * The importance of nuanced language and the stories we tell ourselves (1:47:30); * Peter’s favorite episode of the Dear Therapist Podcast (1:53:15); and * More.

Alexi Pappas on Overcoming Depression and Improving Mental Health
This week’s conversation is with Alexi Pappas, an Olympic runner and an award-winning actor and writer. A Greek-American, Alexi is the Greek national record holder in the 10,000 meters. She graduated magna cum laude from Dartmouth College and also ran for the University of Oregon as a 5th year, leading the team to two NCAA victories. Alexi has been profiled on the cover of the New York Times Sports Page, in Rolling Stone, on NPR's All Things Considered, and was also featured on the cover of Runner's World Magazine's 50th anniversary issu, named as one of the two faces of the "new boom" in running. Her memoir-in-essays, "Bravey," with a foreword by Maya Rudolph was just released – and it’s the reason I wanted to have this conversation. Now more than ever – mental health is at the forefront of what so many of us are dealing with. My hope is that Alexi’s story – one of overcoming depression and seeing a grander version of what her future could look like can help you or a loved one get through any challenges of your own. This is not an easy time... but maybe… this conversation inspires you, that you have more inside you, and reminds you that you’re not alone in this. ----- Please support our partners!
