    Podcast Summary

    • Understanding the Types of Suffering and How to Alleviate Unnecessary PainBy recognizing the difference between necessary and optional suffering, we can minimize our own contribution to unnecessary hardships and find ways to alleviate mental illnesses, leading to a happier and more fulfilled life.

      There is both necessary and optional suffering in life. Dr. Robert Waldinger, a psychiatrist and Zen priest, explains that while we cannot escape pain and uncontrollable hardships, we often contribute to our own suffering through the stories we tell ourselves and unnecessary worries. He emphasizes the importance of recognizing the difference between the two types of suffering. As a psychiatrist, he works to alleviate mental illnesses and provides help through medication and talk therapy. Additionally, Dr. Waldinger discusses the Harvard Study Of Adult Development, which is the longest study of human life ever conducted. The aim of the study was to understand what conditions allow people to thrive and be happy throughout their adult lives.

    • The Longest Study of Happiness and HealthOur relationships are essential for our happiness and well-being, challenging the belief that work and achievement are the sole keys to happiness. Introspection and self-reflection can help us discover what truly brings us happiness in different areas of life.

      The study aimed to understand what makes us happy and keeps us healthy in various aspects of life. It has been the longest study of humans ever conducted, spanning over 85 years. The study has evolved over time, using different methods such as DNA testing and brain scans that were unimaginable when it began. One significant finding from the study is that our relationships play a crucial role in our happiness and well-being. This realization has personally changed the director of the study, making them more intentional about nurturing their relationships. It challenges the notion that constant work and achievement are the keys to happiness. Additionally, the conversation suggests that many of us may not know what truly brings us happiness in different areas of our lives, and we can benefit from introspection and self-reflection.

    • The Importance of Meaningful Connections in Pursuit of HappinessGenuine connections and relationships bring true happiness, surpassing the temporary satisfaction of fame and material possessions.

      Our understanding of what will make us happy is often misguided. We tend to believe that fame, wealth, and achievements will bring us happiness, as these are the messages constantly reinforced by our culture. However, research and studies show that these external markers of success do not actually lead to true happiness. Meaningful connections and relationships, on the other hand, have a greater impact on our happiness and well-being. Engaging in small conversations with strangers or even acquaintances can be surprisingly energizing and fulfilling. We have a natural yearning to be seen and understood, and showing genuine curiosity and interest in others provides them with a sense of belonging and connection. The pursuit of fame and material possessions may offer temporary satisfaction, but it is the depth and quality of our relationships that truly bring us joy and contentment.

    • Finding Peace through Letting Go: Embracing the Present MomentLetting go of comparisons and embracing the present moment can lead to a sense of peace and understanding, freeing ourselves from the constant need for achievements and recognition.

      Our search for a fixed and permanent sense of self can lead to suffering and constant comparison. Driven by a fear that we will be forgotten, we strive for achievements and recognition to make ourselves feel more real. However, this desire for permanence only brings us suffering and dissatisfaction. By letting go of comparisons and focusing on the present moment, we can find a sense of peace and equanimity. Just like birds in the animal world, we can free ourselves from the constant worry about our appearance or achievements. Embracing this mindset, even if not always attainable, can bring relief and a greater understanding of ourselves and our brain's functioning.

    • Navigating the Changing World: Countering the Digital Distractions and Embracing Real-Time Connections with DisciplineIn order to find happiness in the changing world, it is essential to intentionally resist digital distractions, prioritize real-time interactions, be present with emotions, understand the value of time, and practice discipline.

      The world we live in has changed in ways that can make us unhappy. Our brains have evolved in certain ways that require correctives to navigate this changing world. Similarly, the digital world has evolved to grab our attention and exploit our brains. In order to counteract this, we need to be intentional about turning away from digital software when necessary and focusing on real-time contact with others. This requires discipline and the ability to resist the constant distractions and temptations around us. We often seek to change our state through various means like gambling or indulging in sugary treats, but these temporary fixes can be replaced by being present with our emotions and allowing them to pass naturally. Understanding the importance of time and our mortality is also crucial in managing our time effectively. However, all the time management techniques in the world won't work without discipline.

    • The Importance of Positive Alternatives and Relationships in Disciplining OneselfDiscipline involves more than just saying no; it requires having positive alternatives and supportive relationships in place to prevent harmful habits and maintain overall well-being.

      Discipline is not simply about saying no, but about finding positive alternatives to turn towards. It is important to have something in place of a harmful habit or behavior, such as a supportive social network or engaging activities. Having connections and relationships, whether they are romantic or not, plays a crucial role in our overall health and well-being. It is not just about having a partner, but about having at least one person to whom we feel securely attached. Good relationships help us manage stress and negative emotions, allowing our bodies to return to equilibrium. Conversely, loneliness and isolation can keep us in a state of heightened stress, leading to various health issues.

    • The Negative Effects of Social Isolation and Loneliness on HealthLoneliness can lead to stress, poor coping mechanisms, and a decline in social capital. Men, in particular, may struggle to seek support due to societal expectations. Building and maintaining supportive relationships is crucial to combat loneliness and its detrimental effects.

      Social isolation and loneliness have significant negative effects on our health. Stress, poor nutrition, and unhealthy coping mechanisms, such as gambling or making short-term decisions, are often associated with loneliness. Men, in particular, are less likely to open up and seek support during arguments, leading to increased stress levels. The societal expectation for men to be stoic and not show vulnerability contributes to this behavior. Additionally, the introduction of technology and digital media has further isolated individuals, resulting in a decline in social capital. Loneliness has been linked to various health issues, including Alzheimer's disease and early cognitive decline. It is essential to prioritize building and maintaining supportive relationships to combat the detrimental effects of loneliness.

    • The Power of Relationships in Brain Stimulation and Well-BeingGood relationships play a vital role in keeping our minds healthy, but it's important to discern and navigate toxic relationships to maintain overall well-being.

      Relationships play a crucial role in stimulating our brains and can have a significant impact on our overall well-being. Loneliness is linked to a higher risk of developing Alzheimer's disease, highlighting the importance of social connections in keeping our minds healthy. Despite the unpredictability and challenges that come with relationships, they provide the necessary stimulation for our brain circuits. While many of us tend to take relationships for granted, research shows that good relationships have powerful effects on our lives. Being able to be authentic and allowing each other to change over time are key factors in maintaining successful relationships. However, discernment is crucial when it comes to toxic relationships, considering the stakes involved and assessing if there are ways to work through conflicts. Ultimately, nurturing and cultivating relationships throughout life is essential for our well-being.

    • Nurturing Relationships through Acceptance, Support, and GratitudeLetting go of unrealistic expectations, practicing gratitude, and being fully present are essential in fostering growth, happiness, and fulfillment in relationships.

      Successful relationships require acceptance, support, and intentional adjustment of our expectations. Dr. Waldinger emphasizes the importance of being able to embrace the changes and explore new things together. He points out that unrealistic expectations hinder the growth and happiness in relationships. Instead, he suggests focusing on gratitude and catching each other being good, rather than dwelling on annoyances. Practicing gratitude helps us appreciate the positive aspects of our partnership, even during mundane or irritating moments. Furthermore, the conversation highlights the significance of being present in our current activities and avoiding multitasking. Being fully engaged in the present leads to greater happiness and fulfillment.

    • The Power of Focus and Social Connections in Increasing Productivity and HappinessMultitasking hampers productivity, while focusing on one task at a time and entering a flow state can dramatically boost engagement and efficiency. Furthermore, cultivating friendships and socializing at work leads to greater job satisfaction and productivity.

      Multitasking is inefficient and a waste of energy for our brains. Our brains take time to switch back and forth between tasks, which hinders our productivity. Instead of trying to juggle multiple tasks at once, it is better to focus on one activity at a time and enter a flow state. A flow state is a state of complete absorption and engagement in an activity that makes time fly by effortlessly. It can be achieved through various activities such as meditation, playing music, painting, or even running. Additionally, having friendships and socializing at work is not a distraction, but rather a powerful factor for increasing productivity and overall happiness in the workplace. Having a best friend at work leads to higher engagement and job satisfaction.

    • The Importance of Fostering Social Connections in the WorkplaceCreating social connections within the workplace is crucial for employee satisfaction and well-being. Both in-person and virtual environments require intentional efforts from leaders to foster a culture of social connection.

      Fostering social connections within the workplace is crucial for employee satisfaction, engagement, and overall well-being. Dr. Robert Waldinger emphasizes the importance of creating active communities outside of the office, such as sports teams or reading clubs, as these connections spill over into the work itself. Despite the rise of remote working post-pandemic, the impact of in-person human connection cannot be ignored. While some aspects of remote work have proven to be effective, there is still much to learn about the potential filtering out of emotional communication. CEO's and leaders must take the lead in fostering a culture of social connection and be intentional in structuring it, even in virtual environments. By prioritizing social connections, companies can create a more fulfilling and inclusive work experience for their employees.

    • Building Connections and Prioritizing Autonomy in Remote WorkMeaningful connections in the workplace are crucial, particularly in remote settings. Prioritizing autonomy and control can enhance happiness and well-being, while empathy and authenticity are essential for effective interactions.

      Developing meaningful connections in the workplace, especially in remote work settings, requires finding ways to know each other better, just as we used to when working in physical offices. Dr. Waldinger emphasizes the importance of autonomy and control in predicting happiness and overall well-being. The lack of control and autonomy can lead to physiological consequences and increased susceptibility to diseases. Additionally, a recurring struggle for many individuals is the constant self-criticism and feeling of not being enough. Dr. Waldinger's approach as a psychiatrist involves creating a space for individuals to express their concerns and unburden themselves, normalizing their experiences and providing understanding and support. It is important to remember that we often compare our inner struggles to the curated lives we see on social media, emphasizing the need for empathy and authenticity in our interactions.

    • Acknowledging and Addressing Our Struggles: A Path to Personal GrowthUnderstanding and empathy towards others' struggles fosters personal growth and strengthens relationships.

      It is important for us to understand that everyone has their own struggles and difficulties in life, even if they don't openly express it. As a psychiatrist, Dr. Robert Waldinger highlights the importance of acknowledging and addressing our pain and losses, as it is a normal part of being human. He emphasizes that the ones who can be helped are those who are willing to look inward and take responsibility for their own role in their difficulties. Additionally, he explains that some people may resist this self-reflection because it can be uncomfortable and threatening to their self-esteem. Ultimately, the key takeaway is that understanding and empathy towards the struggles of others can help build stronger relationships and foster personal growth.

    • Sharing Valuable Scientific Knowledge for Meaningful LivesDr. Waldinger believes in making scientific knowledge accessible and applicable to alleviate suffering and find meaning in life, prioritizing relationships and engaging conversations, and investing in children for long-term well-being.

      Dr. Robert Waldinger emphasizes the importance of sharing valuable scientific knowledge with the broader world. He believes that it is crucial to bring this information to people in an understandable and applicable manner, rather than keeping it confined to complex scientific papers. By doing so, he aims to alleviate suffering and find meaning in his own life. Dr. Waldinger also highlights the significance of relationships and prioritizes them, acknowledging that we matter to each other for the present moment. He admits that he has made mistakes, including worrying too much about others' opinions and pursuing prestigious achievements that ultimately did not bring him fulfillment. Instead, he finds more satisfaction in engaging conversations and focusing on what truly matters. Additionally, Dr. Waldinger emphasizes the importance of investing in children and those who care for them for long-term societal well-being and self-sufficiency.

    • Investing in Early Childhood Development and Nurturing Relationships for a Better FutureInvesting in early childhood development and nurturing relationships can lead to long-term benefits, preventing future issues and promoting overall well-being and success.

      Investing in early childhood development yields significant long-term benefits. Allocating resources towards children in their formative years can prevent future issues such as poverty, substance abuse, and general unhappiness. Dr. Waldinger emphasizes that while supporting individuals in other age groups is important, focusing on young children and child care can lead to a substantial reduction in societal problems down the line. Additionally, on an individual level, the key to a fulfilling life lies in investing in relationships. Even peripheral connections can provide valuable opportunities, such as job prospects, through their wide networks. Therefore, it is essential to nurture both close and casual relationships, recognizing the value they bring to one's overall well-being and success.

    • The Loss of Social Fabric and the Importance of Kindness in Today's SocietyPrioritizing social connections and practicing kindness can help rebuild the social fabric and promote positive growth in individuals and communities.

      There is a growing concern about the loss of social fabric and social roles in today's society. With people leaving their communities to seek economic opportunities elsewhere, the sense of community and support is diminishing. The conversation highlights the difficulty of knitting these social fabrics back together once they are torn, as people's lives become more isolated and focused on other priorities. While there may be evidence that experiencing pain can bring about change, there is a prevailing influence that prioritizes other things over nurturing social connections. The conversation also emphasizes the importance of kindness as a default setting, as it has the power to nourish healthy seeds and promote positive growth in individuals and communities.

    Moment 165: This Exercise Enhances Mood, Memory & Concentration: David Raichlen

    Moment 165: This Exercise Enhances Mood, Memory & Concentration: David Raichlen
    In this moment, leading professor of evolutionary biology, David Raichlen discusses how to boost the brain benefits that come from exercise. Most people know that exercise can improve cognitive function, but don’t realise that different sort of exercise, like cardio or strength training, can provide different types of neurological benefits. David says that whilst all exercise is beneficial to the brain, research shows that the best sort of physical activity is a combination of physical and cognitive challenges. This helps the brain function as it copies how humans evolved to find food and survive. So this could mean that the next time you go for a run, choose the great outdoors over the treadmill and try different routes you haven’t taken before.

    Moment 164: AVOID These 3 Phone Habits That Are Killing Your Brain! The Mental Health Doctor: Dr Aditi Nerurkar
    In this moment, the world renowned expert in stress, Dr Aditi Nerurkar discusses how the majority of people in the modern world suffer from ‘Popcorn Brain’. According to Dr Aditi ‘Popcorn Brain’ comes from our excessive use of smartphones and social media. This is a real biological phenomenon where your brain circuitry ‘pops’ due to overstimulation and spending too much time online. Your brain never really gets a moment of rest, as being online means it it receives a nonstop stream of information. ‘Popcorn Brain’ is different to the psychological disorder that is internet addiction, as internet addiction seriously affects your ability to live your life, whereas Popcorn Brain defines modern life with everyone being constantly distracted. One of the ways that you can overcome ‘Popcorn Brain’ and improve our mental health is by reducing your reliance on your phone, making sure that you create healthy digital boundaries, so that you give yourself the mental space to live your life.

    2644 Putting the Puzzle Pieces Together

    2644 Putting the Puzzle Pieces Together
    Unlocking your health mystery takes time and persistence. However, you can solve the puzzle and reset your health by putting the puzzle pieces together. One step at a time leads to miles of greatness! ~ Kristianne Wargo Desire to be supported and encouraged by other like-minded women? Join us at http://bit.ly/WomenofIMPACT. http://bit.ly/WomenofIMPACT But unfortunately, society has trained us that if we can take away your symptoms, why can't you still live however you desire? No restrictions. No exercise. Pure joy. Or is it truly pure joy? I have been battling a couple of different viruses since the beginning of the new year. Usually, I'm pretty healthy, not getting sick. But this season has not faired in my favor.  So it got me thinking even more. Since going through perimenopause and now on the other side, plus having gut issues my entire life, maybe I really need to take a hard look at what my body needs.  I know I'm not the average person which diets or fitness regimens are created for. A 1200-1500 calorie day does not work for me at all. And please do not flood my inbox as to what I might be missing. I've done the research and am currently studying real-time as to how my body responds and reacts to food, movement, vitamins, supplements, and so forth. Like any good detective, you've gotta put the puzzle pieces together to understand the whole picture. The K.I.S.S. ~ Put the puzzle pieces together! If you are struggling with your health, I want to encourage you not to give up. You can figure out what is happening and what needs to change. One thing I've been researching is the Paleo Diet. This diet is a whole-foods diet that includes only the most nutritionally dense and sustainable foods. (The Paleo Approach, https://ThePaleoMom.com, Pg. 9) Now, you have heard me say that the food all of us should be eating follows one rule: If God made it, I can eat it. But that's in it's natural state.  For example, God did not make bread. He made grains. So how those grains are prepared and eaten does affect the nutrient density of the food along with how it is absorbed within a person's body. If you are struggling with your health or weight, this might be a good alternative for you to try. As I said, I am taking you on my health journey in discovering all my quirks and likenesses.  You get to decide what you would like to try. This by no means substitutes for personal medical advice. 
    - What are you eating that is real? This is the most natural state of the foods you eat.
    - What are you eating that is processed? If it's not one ingredient, it is processed.
    - How can you integrate more nutrient-dense foods? 
    One thing I want to caution you on. You do not have to define how you eat to anyone.  I have been asked several times, "What program are you doing?" My answer (and it should be yours, too) -- I'm eating what my body requires.  Because you might be a blend of Keto and Paleo. And there is nothing wrong with that. Don't fall into the trap that you must have a definitive cookie-cutter answer.  Your body is uniquely made. So treat it with the respect it deserves by putting together all the puzzle pieces. Now, I am currently working in the preparation stage gearing up to change my body's nutritional menu. I am taking detailed notes as to how my body responds to the "junk food". Then, I'll be able to see exactly how good food affects my body. It's going to be a long process, but I know we'll both learn so many things to benefit us in the long-run.  Hope you're ready to construct your puzzle. "Train for life.

    2941 More of We

    2941 More of We

    Life can get in the way of loving those closest to us, especially our spouses. So instead of hiding in our busyness and floundering more in someone else's highlight reel, make a commitment to more of we.

    How much time do you spend with your spouse?

    Desire to be supported and encouraged by other like-minded women? Join us at Women of IMPACT. https://createyournow.mn.co

    And would you say that you spend less time together now than when you got married?

    Most of us have to really stop and think when we see our sweethearts. And as for the time, what time is it again?

    The number one relationship, if you're married, is your spouse. 

    But very quickly, we find other ways to occupy our time, distract our attention, and lead us down a rabbit hole in our own homes. 

    It just does not seem fair to anyone!

    Yet you live it every day. You get up and do YOUR thing and forget that there's someONE in your life. You take care of the children, because you have to. But the rest is left to fend for themselves. 

    How can any marriage be awesome if that's a typical every day?

    What if you would make time for each other?

    What if there was more of we?

    The K.I.S.S. ~ More of WE!

    My goal here is to get you thinking about how you spend TIME with your spouse.

    Are you showing up with your best self, or is your spouse getting the leftovers?

    "Leftovers are great for food, not so much for love!" ~ Kristianne Wargo

    You get out what you put into your marriage. So why not show up with enthusiasm? Why not give more when you don't receive? Why not have compassion during challenges in life? Why not be together more than you are apart?

    It's hard to build a strong foundation in marriage if you're not together. Logistics do matter. 

    I want to encourage you to analyze your time with your spouse. 

    1. How much time do you spend together in bed?
    2. How much time do you spend as a couple awake and interacting?
    3. How much time do you spend talking about life, not just kids and career?

    Then from there, you'll be able to see what is happening regarding time.

    Is time on your side?

    Assuming that you fall into "most of us," then you can make some tweaks to how you hang out together. The way you spend your time together matters!

    QUESTION: What can you do differently to add time to love?

    "Be present. Be incredible. Be YOU!!!"

    3164 Show Me The Way

    3164 Show Me The Way
    Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life. ~ Psalm 143:8 In the midst of life's storms, we can often find ourselves feeling lost, searching for guidance and reassurance. Desire to be supported and encouraged by other like-minded women? Join us at Women of IMPACT. https://createyournow.mn.co  Even David, a man after God's own heart, sought daily affirmation of God's love and direction. Like him, you too can turn to your Heavenly Father, seeking His divine path in moments of doubt and uncertainty. So, as you embark on this journey, remember the powerful prayer and cry out, "God, show me the way." This plea is not a passive request, but an active declaration of your dependence on God. It signifies your willingness to act, to make decisions, and to move forward in the direction that He points to. Just as David found comfort and strength in perceiving God's love as the morning light that breaks through the darkest night, you too desire to experience His love at the start of each day. In looking at Psalm 143:8, let the words resonate deeply within your soul, reminding you of the need for God's constant love and guidance. By seeking God's love in the morning, you embody His presence, regardless of the challenges you may face. Imagine God's love as a guiding force, a compass pointing you in the right direction. With His love as your True North, you can navigate the uncertainties of life with confidence and peace. Whether you are struggling with personal setbacks, facing difficult decisions, or feeling overwhelmed by the weight of the world, God's love is ever-present, ready to illuminate the path before you. The K.I.S.S. ~ Show me the way! When you acknowledge your dependence on God and actively seek His guidance, you open yourself up to what God has in store for you.  His love is not merely a source of comfort but a catalyst for growth, transformation, and purpose. God has placed a call on your life. As you submit yourself to His will, you'll discover that His plans for you are far greater than anything we could ever imagine. In times of darkness, doubt, or pain, hold fast to David's prayer and make it your own. Just as he trusted in God's unfailing love, so too can you embrace HIs divine gift of love and grace as you follow His lead.  Start each day by whispering, "Lord, show me the way." Let His love be the beacon that guides you, the compass that steers you, and the pillar of strength that sustains you. In this surrender, you find freedom, purpose, and an unbreakable connection with your risen Lord and Savior. Embrace His love, for it is the key that unlocks the doors of your heart and leads you on the journey He has planned for you. "Be present. Be incredible. Be YOU!!!"   #SweetSpirit #CreateYourNow #SoulfulSunday 🔔 Desire to be supported and encouraged by other like-minded women?

    1910 How Do You Balance Life's Demands?

    Life can give you lemons; busyness, stress, and exhaustion. Out of control seems like the new normal. How do you balance life's demands when you can't escape your living room?

    Maybe you've been running laps around the coffee table and knocked a few things over. Maybe you've decided that less is more.

    But only if you could get less hanging out and more peace in the house.

    Children of all ages can stir up so much energy. Yet the challenge is having this energy in one place ALWAYS! At least before, you could change the environment.

    Now, you are stuck. Not because you want to be, but because you have to be.

    Finding a balance in your own life is one thing. But creating it with the family is another.

    So you gotta put first things first.

    The K.I.S.S. ~ Put first things first!

    Yes, the kiddos matter. But if you don't keep your head on, a lot more can go wrong.

    So take a deep breath. Put first things first!

    1. Create an escape moment. This is a way to give yourself space for personal accountability. Run in such a way that you might win. (1 Corinthians 9:24) You may not be able to leave the area, but you can find a moment where you can gain a sense of peace.
    2. Energize with hope. Do something that switches the focus on the positive, not the negative. Dance. Laugh.
    3. Play Hide 'n Seek. You make the rules. Even the little ones can play. You can even play with doubles. Choose a base and you've got this. Just beware! The cat might give you away.

    How you feel will be multiplied by the children. They can sense when you are feeling stressed, relaxed, or even nervous. Do your best to project what you want them to feed off of.

    "Train for life. Love your journey!!!"
