How Your Mind Affects Your Outlook on Life

"How much thought have you ever given to your thoughts? Do. You ever think about what you're thinking about. If you find yourself in A. Bad mood low mood emotionally. You feel like you're really getting. Down in the dumps getting discouraged. Why don't you take a few minutes and stop and think about what you're thinking about? And you'll find that. The way you feel is connected to the way you're thinking. Are you aware of how much your thoughts affect every area of your life. They affect the words you speak your moods, attitudes relationship with God, yourself and other people and every decision on every behavior that you make. And No. To, think whatever falls in your head. You can do your own. thinking. You can do your own. thinking. I'll go slow. You can do your own thinking. The. Reason why it's quiet is because this is something we never think about. We never think about how we think. You know we just wake up in the morning. The Devil says you're depressed. You. Just get right in agreement with him on depressed. Basically it's GonNa be a lousy day. You Get up the first thing you say to somebody who's just going to be lousy day. We have to. Learn to recognize. The lives of Satan. And to understand that more than any other thing, he uses our mind. He lies to US brings deception. into our lives. He tries to steal everything from us that Jesus came to give us. and. We can't just sit passively by and wish. We didn't feel this way and. Hope something happens. You know that kind of hope really isn't hope at all. Hope is expecting that something good is going to happen. He's not well, I hope God does something. You know the Bible says that the Kingdom of God has suffered violence and the violent. Take it by force. And I love that the Kingdom of God has suffered attack and the energetic. Take it by force. Is a better translation, and so we need to stop just thinking that everything good is just GonNa fall on us and we need to realize that God is giving us a a life plan. In the Bible. He, said I am the way and so you might say in here is the way to live. You can't vent it. Doesn't matter if you like it or not. God's not going to change his mind in here is the way to live and any problem that you have the answer to that problem is in this book. And so we learn what's in here and this takes time. You get better and better and better, but nobody's GonNa have total victory overnight. This is not a drive through breakthrough. Drive to get just about everything day, but you cannot get a drive through bright blue. You're going to have to go through to get the breakthroughs that you make. then. and changing our thinking learning how to let the Holy Spirit, show us when our thoughts are wrong learning how to recognize the lives of Satan and how to learn learning, but think the way that God thinks about every situation is the very basic foundational thing that has to take place for any kind of real transformation in our lives. And Sat beside there are many Christians just people who do love God that has never in their life. Her one message like I'm going to preach here tonight. I was in charge for years and years and years before I ever heard anything about my thoughts and I. Certainly didn't think I could do anything about them. How. Many of you know what I'm talking about? The ever feel like you're losing your mind. Well perhaps you are. Perhaps she's lost are given up the control of your thoughts. So really when we say I feel like I'm losing my mind. It's because we're letting the enemy are thinking far us. And he's filling is with worry and fear and anxiety and threats and every kind of torment. You say what I just don't know what to do. What can I do? Think something else. Thinks something. Good good always overcomes

When she was a kid, it happened during an episode of her new facebook. Watch show the UNFILTERED Jackson and Gabriel, glad. To do. Marrying checked or Or women that okay, the public only about three. Long term relationships that I've been in and they've been with men. I wouldn't consider myself bisexual because I've dated more than just minimum. Dated a man that her vagina. My Dad caught on pretty quick I think he just felt the energy, and he would like kind of tease me the same way that he would tease my brother's. Girlfriend. It's like restoring magazine woman too hard. You know you'd be like Oh you like her. What do you guys think about Paris? Being so open? Good for her. Go ahead go ahead. I was a positive and I'm going to be the negative Nancy over here. I'm still choking on my water now. I just think like first of all I mean. I haven't watched. Jackson too closely I think she's stunning, first and foremost, but I just feel like this goes with her whole vibe and her whole aura. She's GonNa live whatever truth she's GonNa live, and if it turns out that she wants to be with men and women more than men and women than I feel like she's going to be open about that I don't get a sensor vibe from her at all. Right percent and you know what I do love that she's being open about this because she can influence people to be open more open and more, you know open minded. But I also at the age of thirty two I regret being open. About are so open about my sexuality I wish I could take some of those things back in processing them. Go back and processing and then Kinda. Reveal what they were what they meant to me as an older person. Because I feel like you know when you just let it out that much, and you just let it out. It almost takes away from authenticity that that relationship or that experience was to you. Does that make any sense? I guess so, but then innocence. Sometimes it helps you process when you say things out loud, or when you have these honest conversations with the people who are close to you, and yes, she is saying it for the world to see but yeah, I feel like it kind of just helped her actualize what her truth is. In my opinion on IT I. Go ahead. Go ahead. No I just think people. Her Age ranges well like I think they're in a generation where they want to be as truthful and his open and honest about all of their experience as possible so i. just think it's almost you know that's just kind of what everyone does. When we were younger, it was like Oh. They're looking empowered. Group I wish I was confident when I was that age though their own the guests they are empowered group, but they're also a group of one uppers like Oh you having ninety. I have anxiety and.

Sue Bird on the WNBA's Plan for the 2020 Season

"I Su. High has gone. It's good, so sued the players voted. The WNBA is officially kicking off the two thousand twenty season in late July at IMG Academy in Bradenton Florida. How are you feeling about all this about basketball? Being played in two thousand twenty, you know I'm not gonNA lie. It's kind of mixed emotions. You know I think when it comes to just simply playing basketball lesson. That's an easy answer. There's something about it that will give us. A sense of purpose we love to play. It'll be able to do great things for the WB and this bubble, but then obviously with what's going on whether it's you know health and safety pandemic wise whether it's social justice wise just a lot to kind of process through. I do plan on going so that's not. That's not really what I'm trying to announce anything like that, but it's still like as the date approaches. You know it's still a lot going on I, think everybody said. Your VP of your union. What were some of the Union's biggest concerns? Guys came to an agreement on this. I mean first and foremost is definitely the health part of it all you know the safety part of it all and just kind of going through. You know what the protocol is GonNa. Be An he the frustrating part and it's nobody's fault. Is that because cove nineteen is obviously new? There's not tons information on it because we're trying to get this season going in. At the time it felt like in a you know three or four week period. We're trying to make all these decisions. A lot of doctors just didn't have concrete answers, so the frustrating part was wanting to hear just like exact answers, and really not getting them just being able to be told what kind of they hope things to be in what they plan for so again. It just brings a little bit anxiety, but I think now that we. We are getting closer. That is one thing that that got handled after that it was the money I'm not gonNA lie. You know when you pull to the table for negotiations. You never know what's going to happen, but luckily at the end of the day it took us a second to get there, but at the end of the day we got one hundred percent of our money, even though we're playing a little less in terms of games, but That was that was a good thing as well and then the third thing was the social justice aspect. WNBA is eighty percent black women. You know we're kind of at the intersection of so many things, and we need our league to stand for something and to support us, so those were kind of like the As you mentioned it's so hard to make these decisions when you're working with such imperfect information, especially scientifically, right? What was that like for you personally making that call? I don't know if there's going to be a great analogy, but because I've had so many surgeries and I've had to do. A lot with. Doctors and getting opinions, I've actually I've come to understand that. We've viewed doctors in this light of knowing everything and I've actually in my own way. I've come to understand that they they know a lot, and hopefully you know you have doctors. Luckily I do around you that you can trust, but there's a there's a limit to that. You know when they cut you open to perform surgery. There's always a percentage you know always a chance that it's not gonNA. Work out exactly how you want so for. For me I. Just tried to actually put myself back in that mindset like okay. They're giving us as much as they can. But there's obviously uncontrollables is well. I mean honestly the State of Florida.

How Does Stress Trigger Physiological Conditions?

"Hey guys welcome to not another anxiety show I'm your host Kelly Walker and joining me today as my co-host Erica late them. My, Darling. Good sweating just existing. It went from the dead of winter in a like distortion. What was that show that I never watch game of thrones like the white walkers are coming to the Sahara chocolates too Humid Sahara. If the Amazon. My hair is huge right now I've got some curly hair, so my friend was like. Why is your hair so curly? Did you check the humidity? It's like a thousand percent. That's what. Science! Science it can become a thousand I am drinking the air so. In such rated we'll. However you tell me everything. All besides that, you know just. Just hitting up the Instagram, where I saw an interesting, a really great question. Right like we have a great question. We got a great questions, but this one was. And I will read it to you any second now, but this one was something that we both went. Okay okay, we can talk about this like it's even beyond. Anxiety bites because it's sort of getting back to the basics of song. Yes, so. and. I think there's like you know I WANNA make sure. We sort of answering a no read it in a second here but I wanNA. Make sure we sort of answer the question, but there's a little more to it underneath the surface that I, also WanNa touch on, which is why it's not just like a simple anxiety bites because it was like sort of an evocative question for us and I definitely thought it was worth probably something we've touched on here and there, but never like dedicated an entire episode to so Yeah I think it's. It's definitely worth taking some time. Okay Ready. I understand that things like heart palpitations may lead one to think that they have a heart condition, which is not actually present. I'd like you to do a segment about how stress can trigger actual physiological conditions. Love. This thing I mean you remember this coaching? air-cooled heart palpitations, but I was like yeah, okay, thanks a lot for the vice. Mine's real. And, it's no less real, but. Yes. Yep Yep and so I WanNa make sure I answer this listeners question about stress, and how it, how it impacts our bodies, so I'll take a second to sorta like dive into a biology lesson, which is my favorite thing. Ever sorry Erica bear with me. There's going to be I listen. I love. The biology I just don't understand sixty two percent of it. To Hey. That's passing right on. Oh. Yes, that's passing. That's a New York it is. That's passing. So yeah, I do WANNA speak to to how stress can trigger actual physiological conditions I don't want to share them here, but she she sort of shared a few things that have arisen for her as the result of anxiety so. It is it is well researched documented that chronic stress is one factor keyword one factor of so many others that can contribute to the development or exasperation of physiological conditions. Right stress makes chronic pain worse. It makes gastric issues worse. It makes cardiovascular issues worse. It makes it really exacerbates everything because. Stress touches every single one of our system, so I mean it really does make sense since chronically elevated stress, hormones like cortisol disrupt so many of our body's metabolic functions, but let's hear Mon. that's the one I can remember cortisol. I. Bet you know more than you, thank. For years later. Okay so! I wish it was as simple. This a little more nuanced I wish it was a simple saying. Anxiety and stress caused sickness right, but. We've sort of touched on this or mentioned it in a few previous episodes Dr Kelly mcgonagall. She's a psychologist from Stanford and go watch Ted Talk She's. She's very. He has a Tedtalk But to like basically some up her ted talk on and her and her research She's focused on how. Our understanding, of. Stress. And how it affects the body so. Finding was that when we change our relationship distress, or whatever are currently ship is, we can change how stress affects our body. More, specifically yet right like it always feels like an end. She says this in her Ted Talk. She's like you know I came into practices as a psychologist demonizing stress, eliminate stress managed stress, control, stress, right, but so many of us in the anxiety. Psycho are well. Of how trying to control stress or anxiety goes tension rises, anxiety rises. It's not very effective and Her major finding was that when we change our relationship to stress, right, we change how stress affects our body more specifically when we relate to stress as a natural response that exists to prepare, motivate and protect us than we don't suffer the same negative health outcomes is someone who relates to trust to stress as something to be entirely. Avoid it when we relate to stress as the former, a completely different physiological response occurs different ratio of stress hormones in addition to protective hormones are released mitigating the effects of stress on our body.

You End Up Where You're Heading: The Hidden Dangers of Living a Safe Life with Jimmy Rex

"You know, we'll be talking about the hidden dangers of living a safe life because Jimmy's written a great new book called you end up where you're heading the hidden dangers of living that safe life. Is Kick it right off Jimi. Because what do you mean exactly when you say there hidden dangers of living a safe life I mean don't we just want to minimize? Our risk was to deal with us. And that's what's kind of funny as in the past when you know civilizations, reforming and everything else the whole purpose was the explorers had all the danger, the people that went out and did those things they left the sellers behind the settlers job was to build walls. to around those places that are already mapped out to kind of. Help. Make it predictable surprises destroy. Build walls Ford's till the fields reproduce all those things. And that was the safe life was to be the settler. All the explorers I mean even the good ones that we know about. You Know Marco Polo and others I mean they ended up getting killed on their expectations, but these settlers had kind of this safe life, and unfortunately it's kind of changed now with social and technological advances. We've wiped. Most the dangers of the frontier calories are cheap transportation safe. It's fast plagues, minus the Krona virus is pretty much been eradicated. You know but modern explorers They're the ones that get to venture out the high degree. They have a lot of uncertainty, but they kind of they're gonNA. Return in one piece You know there's you're not worried about getting. Having to sell the sees with unsmooth waters, not having to worry about. People thinking that you're doing witchcraft or here see and things like that, and so where the danger come in now is you know the reality is if you're the person that's sitting in settling just kind of? Staying in your safe place, you're going to have a lot of harsh conditions coming out of that, you're going to have you know. Forms of addiction, obesity, burnout, heart, disease, anxiety, depression, and for what so you can you know? Maybe get a little bit bigger house. You can have a mediocre relationship comfort. So for the whole idea of the book, the whole idea of the title and everything else is we think that leading a safe life is kind of camping in and and kind of building ourselves into this is a small world, but the real value of the real beauty of life is getting out and exploring. What's out there? It is really interesting because when you think about it, and you hear you know all those stories from the olden days you hear that phrase over and over again that you can see who the pioneers are because they have the arrows in their back there the people. That went like we're going West like. We're going to the Pacific and you never heard from them again. Because they went out, they went into native American country, were they? Just you know had exposure because of the rocky winters in. Different thing all those different things, so you know it's really interesting to hear that things have flipped because most people they choose what they perceived to be this quote, unquote safe life so beyond what you've already shared his. You've already kind of shared a little overview of what that happens. It's going to a couple specifics on why we as human beings do this, and maybe we shouldn't. If you picture, there's a map on a table and somebody's got their head over the map and they're looking. Looking at this map and they see that is their entire world, and they think okay. This is what I know. This is what I'm comfortable with. This is where I feel safe, but in most people live their whole lives with that map zoomed in, but if somebody were to come up and go, hey, pull the map back. Pull your head back and you notice. The map is one hundred times bigger than you ever thought. And this happened to me in my own life I was born. To believe one thing and I live that way for over thirty years, and then all of a sudden I had a couple of life experience. I started traveling the world I got to go. I've been over sixty eight countries now. And with my travels every single time I went, there was so much reward. There's so much joy there was so much beauty and these other worlds that existed as like I got to see so many different parts of life and so many different cultures and every time I went. I learned other things I started to realize that all these things I was uncomfortable with once. I got to know them. The discomfort went away and it actually became a much stronger love, so I'll give you one example. I was in Egypt a couple years ago and a good. Good friend of mine hit, invited me to go with him, and he, visiting his family in Egypt, and I've always had this fear, just being honest of Islamic people and his family was there, and they had this beautiful Islamic about thirty of them I was when I first got, there was so uncomfortable, and then all the sudden I saw the love and the way they took me into his mom came up to me, and she said I've been worried about my son in the united. States for twenty years and having met one of his best friends. All my fears gone away. I can see he has he's beautiful France, and it creates his atmosphere that creates these experiences life experiences, where you just truly get to step out of your old map and look at this new form of it, and it's so much more bigger and so much more

How to Meditate with Your Higher Brain

"Do. You ever wonder why when you sit down to meditate. It just doesn't seem to happen. Waves of worrying thoughts moved through our head, our anxiety and stress just doesn't seem to settle down after five minutes ten minutes or even minutes. Even, though we're sitting very still, and were watching our breath or trying to let thoughts go. Our mind just doesn't seem to let us meditate. There seems to be a battle in our head. We want to meditate, but we can't call the mind. Why is this? While I've heard many teachings from very learned meditation Masters throughout the years. What are the most cogent explanations came recently when I sat down with Dr. Albert Oviedo, the medical anthropologist and author of bestselling books including Shaman Healer Sage. We record the podcast at his mountain retreat center in Chile. On the PODCAST, Dr Viola explains how our brain health is crucial to our meditation, practice and spiritual development. You have a broken brain. You can't meditate, he explains. If your brain is producing stress molecules such as cortisol and adrenaline. It is going to be impossible to meditate. We have to have the physical substrate. We can't just will ourselves to meditate. So? How do we create this physical substrate to meditate? It has to do with what we eat. That's right what we eat. And importantly what we don't put in our stomachs impacts directly our ability to calm the mind to look inward, and to gain all the benefits. We know there is to receive from meditation. On the PODCAST. Dr Field explains what parts of the brains are active when we're stressed when our flight or fight modes are active, which are found in the Reptilian and Mammalian parts of the brain. But in order to meditate, he explains. We need to take up residence in the higher brain, the NEO CORTEX and prefrontal lobes where the bliss molecules are produced where we experienced the divine and transcendence. It is very clear on the podcast that what we eat directly impacts where our brain is firing. Hint here. It has something to do with Akito Diet. Dr Field or reveals to us the optimal nutrition for meditators and what we might want to avoid if we want to take our meditation practice to the next level. I hope you enjoy this fascinating interview and be on the lookout for the next episode where Albert Dough and Linda finch guide us in a morning breathing meditation to strengthen our luminous energy field, but for now sit back and enjoy my conversation with Dr Albert Veto. So welcome Alberto to the hey house meditation podcast. Thank you Matteo good to be with you I'm. Very interested to talk to you about our meditation practice and how our brain health. Relates to that meditation practice. A lot of us have a lot of challenges with. Meditation and I was fascinating in reading your work and listen to your lectures recently about how our brain health can support that meditation practice. So can you talk a little bit about that? Absolutely you if you have a broken brain? You cannot meditate. If your brain is producing only distress molecules which are Adrenalin Cortisol it's impossible to meditate. You can get angry or you're GONNA WANNA. Check your emails. So in order to be able to meditate, we need to access the higher brain, which is the brain that produces the bliss molecules because you need. The chemical substrate is not just a mental thing, not just a mind. We can't just will ourself into meditation. Will it many of us try just? To. Push through. That's kind of we call that. Be masochistic. Him So you mentioned the higher brain. What is that? Could you explain to our listeners exactly what that means? He's sort of four parts of the brain. We have four distinctly different brands Heinemann anatomically different brains that evolved during different periods in history. I rip dillion brain, which is in charge housekeeping, and we share that with all the reptiles snakes, the alligators, not particularly lovable, but that this brain no love. Knows body temperature, heart, rate, housekeeping autonomic functions. All the audit keeps his breathing for example. When we think about it, you know for example, dolphins don't have breathing programmed into their pillion brand, so they're part of an experiment where you had to breathe consciously. That's why only half their brains sleeps in any one time. But in top of the Brazilian brainers, the Mammalian brand that we share with all the mammals. And this is the brain of the emotions. And this is a brain that fuels itself with sugar. Run some sugar. So as long as you eating a lot of sugar, you're. You're going to be stuck in this brain fear. Of Feeding of not having enough of scarcity of fighting of needing to make yourself or someone else wrong and a predatory sexuality. So. Strong desire is is is in this mammalian brain. This is the brain that really long for intimacy, but cannot get. This matter how close you get, you cannot open yourself up to another person because you're going to be terrified of what they might

"Now I'm a stay and blessings welcome. And it really is a pleasure to have you with us. Thank you for joining in. People listening often send me different bits and pieces through the weeks poems and quotes and a lot of cartoons I'm thinking that. The community is trying to serve my deepest needs. Especially these last weeks I'll just share one that came and basically said. So far twenty twenty s is like looking both ways before crossing the street. And then getting hit by an airplane. Another was a shopper saying. I've decided return twenty twenty. It just didn't meet my expectations. and. Then, of course, there's been countless steaks on the restrictions of confines of being at home, sheltering at home and one then just showed a dog on us psychiatrist's couch and the psychiatrist saying so, when did you start seeing an invisible fence? So thank you for whatever you send to me. I enjoy these the background theme of course of all of them is the intensity. The trauma, the anxiety, the uncertainty of these times. And then with that, of course, for so many of us this continuing inquiry, which is so central, which is really. How can our hearts hold it happen we respond to. What's going on for ourselves and for others in our world in a way that serves. So a part of looking at this are as a way of looking at this. I want to start with a story and IT'S A. Kind of A. Classical teaching meth that you find in many different traditions, and it's one that I've always really loved. And so might sit back and listen. In the clouds of the distant past there was a monastery that had fallen upon difficult times there were conflicts and power struggles between the monks. There was disrespect and tension between monks and the nuns. Due to a drought, the vegetable garden it started going down now there was no effort to revive it. the the monks and nuns. Just they just weren't taking care of each other. Are The their land mini? The monks were elderly. It was it was really a dying water. So very dispirited. The Abbot went to seek guidance from a well-known say a wise woman who practised and lived in solitude and the deep woods and nature. And he asked her what might save them. What might save the Monastery? And they meditated together, and she said well I. Don't have any advice to give you. But what I can say is that the body sought full lives amongst you. Now just to say about decide for awaken being being with an awakened heart in the Awaken Hearts Cody Cheetah so abode thoughtful for lives amongst you. So he returned and hold amongst the nuns that there was no solution, but just to let them all know what she had said that the body sought for is amongst us. And interestingly in the days and weeks that followed they started pondering this and their spirit started lifting with a kind of fresh hope the way they were relating to each other changed like. Wow, maybe you're the body saga, so they became more. Respectful and carrying and curious like. Maybe there's something I can learn from you, so they started treating each other differently, and on the chance that maybe they were each vote for they started being kinder and more respectful and more attentive to their own inner processes. And it extended to the world around them. Knowing that body sophists have many different types of incarnations. They actually started treating the wildlife. The animals the gardens land with increasing care. Well people that came by started noticing the changing atmosphere, and felt drawn to the radiance and the vibrancy that was emanating from the monastery, and more and more of them wanted to move in, and be part of it and join, and within a few years at the monastery, became again a very thriving order filled with service to the wider community and celebration and love. So that's the story, and then we ask ourselves. What happened? You know the sage. Had reminded them of something and. What she had really done, was reminded them of their own potential of the the laid the love, and the potential for awakening each of them, and that gave. New meaning gave hope. That then led to creating the community that expressed that light in love.

How to calm anxiety when stepping back into the world after lockdown

"This week we're talking about how to calm the anxiety. Many of us are facing and returning to work or stepping back into the world. After the lockdown, and while some are eager to get back to work in a sense of normalcy structure, many have enjoyed the quiet time including US and more time with family and. In sometimes, that's that's tough to leave behind. Anxiety about getting sick or bringing illness home to loved ones, all kinds of things are showing up and there's a lot to consider and to be cautious about now. We find that it's helpful to examine our personal concerns and then focus on supporting those as they come up. Before we dive in even deeper. Got Back from a weekend away with my family and it's the first time we've done anything. Since covid nineteen popped up. And we went to a very. Very safe place as far as the numbers are concerned a not very populated. We went up to the upper peninsula of Michigan. and. We were very careful. But we. Did more. Over the weekend than we have in several months as far as going out. And being in a hotel room and being at a restaurant, those kinds of things. In it was a lovely experience, but it was also. A bit exhausting an ongoing by the time. I was so happy to get home. We loved the trip was wonderful. But. That being sure to have my masks do I sanitize it. I wash my hands. I touch this. I don't WanNA use a public restroom. How am I gonNA work around that. WanNa go to my favorite restaurant. Our the handling things. It. Most of what we did was outside in nature, but There was quite a bit that wasn't and it was been unsettling. I was grateful to know how to care for myself and my family. During that time we were extra extra careful, and I'm hopeful that everything's just fine. But boy! Oh, boy, if you're feeling this. We know that you're alone because this is a lot. Whether it's returning to work in an office environment which my husband did. Some weeks ago. Or whether it's getting back out into the world like what I just explained. It's perfectly normal if it feels like a bit too much right now. Yeah. And so much has changed, and so much feels different me when I'm out and about I can feel frustration. Sometimes from others who just want things to be normal and and get back to normal, just have it will be as it was because it starting to fill a bit inconvenient bit high maintenance and then. Others sing to be very concerned or even scared, and my heart really goes out to them I was on my daughter a few evenings ago, we spotted heroin so some people stopping with their cameras to photograph, the Love Bird, and an elderly gentleman, stopped a distance away from my daughter, and he said everyone looking at, and she said Oh there's a heroin. then. She pointed to the bud, but. It was towards him, so she pointed towards him a bit, and he startled and step back. and. She was fair distance from him. She wasn't too close, but she felt awful. Oh sure. She said I started that gentleman. I think he thought I was a bit to blow some, so we were just walking in and talking and saying this is really unusual. Way, you know you're out taking a walk, and you just go to point a burden. Somebody feels something's it because they're very wary about this awful illness and the potential. Impact of that on their life, so it's not like we're all in exactly the same boat. Some are feeling very anxious about illness and bringing on US home to their family. Understandably some feeling frustrated. They Wanna get back to normal. For. Some home isn't the happiest place on Earth, and they need to get back to work and be with Elvis. Some need structure and some more introvert. Just WanNa stay home.

Eric Ward on Racial Justice

"As. Our nation continues to grapple with the best ways to make progress on critical issues of racial justice. We here at people of the pod felt that we needed to hear from Eric. Award Eric is the Executive Director of the Western states center a civil. Rights Organization based in the Pacific Northwest Mountain states he is also a national voice, racial justice and a leader in the black community speaking up urgently. Urgently for the need to fight antisemitism, which he identifies as a leading driver of other forms of Bigotry Eric thank you so much for joining us I'm so glad to be here with you. All thanks for inviting me now as someone on the front lines of the Civil Rights Movement today, the first thing I want to ask is how are you? How are you doing this really busy, really crazy time. I think like everyone else I'm exhausted. I'm carrying a lot of weight. A lot of responsibility I'm not alone in that we are moving fast soaks at the community level has really mobilized around civil rights, and you know it's a responsibility to support that leadership as much as possible I think I'm both nervous and. We are watching kind of in a way, the end of one age a period of time, and the beginning of another, and we're kind of in this inbetween points, and so it feels a little chaotic can. We don't know what's next I. Don't know about the rest of folks, but that brings anxiety to me, but also joy Reid I watch folks every day across communities across religions, really coming together, trying to find one another struggling with one another and I think that bodes well so mile this chapter. The book is not ending particularly well. I think it tells us the story fact will. Yeah. We're clearly in something of a moment. Right? Historically politically. We're in a moment and I guess the question for someone like you and for anyone who wants to kind of be a part of making this elastic changes. How can we take a moment and turn it into something that really changes our society, so you know at the macro level I like wow, you know we are actually finally poised to acknowledge that everyone in our society are fully actualize human beings. That may not seem like a really kind of radical thing, but it's taken a lot of centuries for us to get to this point and I'm actually really excited to be here, right? Having a strong democracy. Means having strong participation, that participation doesn't happen if we only consider part of our society as fully human so at the macro level. I feel like. Wow you know. We are getting close to getting this right. And after ten thousand years you know or forty thousand years I think we finally earned the right to that right, so I want to own that and I. Hope folks own map for a second, and if it makes you feel good, good I so now here's what we should do. Its APP, we should get serious about some very specific things so. Twentieth Century. Policing has come to an end. It is a system that no longer works for the inclusive democracy that we are, and it is time for a twenty first century version of it that is grounded in community, safety, right, and the prosperity of our community them I think that that is exciting and I think we should be encouraging those conversations. We should be continuing to encourage folks to be dialogue with one another I. An I'll just be playing, right? We can't be a society that seals. It is okay to shoot and kill unarmed. Black people in our society are quite frankly folks were unarmed and running away. It is just not becoming a democracy so i. you know I think policing as. As a policy conversation is a topic of the day it will be the topic of the year will be the topic of next year, and we should not allow the sacrifices of those at the community level been working on these issues over the last three weeks or the last three decades to go to waste right now. So that's one. The second is look. We have to get a hold of the mission oriented hate crimes, and what I mean by mission oriented I. Don't mean the average hate crime. We experienced. You know that the random hate crime those have to be tackled, too, but untuckit about this rise of mission oriented targeting of vulnerable communities and their institutions whether we're talking about Anti Semitism. Racism. Talking about the targeted Latinos in El Paso or the targeting of Jews in Pittsburgh at a targeting a blacks in Charleston seeks in Wisconsin. It is time for our government institutions just step up and protect its citizens and its residents and A. We don't need new laws to do that. We need to actually start using the laws that are on the books. We have to bring transparency to those who seek to try to destroy democracy by terrorizing folks in our community. Those are the two things we could be right on top of right now.

Elijah McClain's mother says officers "murdered" my son

"Longer protesters and demonstrators and activists continue fighting for black lives. The more stories of police killings of black people seem to be coming to light and pressure is now mounting for a new investigation. Into the death of Elijah McCain. It happened after an encounter with three officers last August in Aurora, Colorado. Go to the family. The 23 year old was out buying ice tea when somebody called 911 claiming that MacLean was wearing a ski mask and quote acting weird. His family says, Yeah, he was wearing a mask, but it was to deal with social anxiety. Within 15 minutes, He was put in a chokehold and then injected with a powerful sedative. CBS's David Begnaud has the story. Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop. I have the right stuff because you're being suspicious. Rely on I'm going whole relax, or I'm going to have to change this situation. The district attorney investigating the case says that Elijah McClane dismissed the officers requests for him to stop. The 23 year olds family says he was just walking home. He was listening to music. When Aurora, Colorado police approached him last August, the D A. Says McLane was carrying a plastic bag when police tried to pat him down and he refused. He's then heard pleading with the police as they tackle him and use a choke hold on him. Paramedics later arrived at the scene. A medic gave McClane ketamine to sedate him. McLane was taken to the hospital. Three days later, he was pronounced brain dead. 10 months after McLane's death, more than two million people have signed a petition calling on Colorado officials to fire the three officers involved. So far, the Aurora Police Department has declined. CBS News is request for comment. Dave Young is the one who decided not to charge the officers were the actions of the officers justified legally. Yes, Mr Young. Do you believe there was a moment in this where the officers could have de escalated a situation? Absolutely. 100%. They could've done a 1,000,000 things different didn't need to die on and the fact that he died does not warrant the basis for criminal charges in the body camera video cops or heard saying that MacLean tried to take one of their guns. He went for his gun. Mari Newman represents McClain's family. Don't you think if you really had grab someone's gun, we would see fingerprints ended the lifted from the gun. Did you find any evidence that corroborates the officer who said he reached for the gun? I had no evidence to cut. Predict that Shin in McLean is Elijah's mother. They? They're bullies with badges. He wanted to help people. He was a massage therapist. He not only heal others that he killed himself. He was able to accept love give love various forms. According to the district attorney's report, the medical examiner was unable to determine a cause of death. It is important to note that walking around with a ski mask is not illegal, and when you go back to the 9 11 call, the caller didn't say that Elijah did anything illegal. He said. Hey, there's a guy wearing a mask. He kind of is waving his hand. Seems a little strange. You might want to check it out. He says He might be a good guy might be a bad guy. When the police responded instead of observing. Instead of watching hanging back for a bit, the police moved in immediately to stop him. And everything went self from there.

The role of a leader in removing anxiety.

Hacking Your Leadership

05:01 min | Last week

The role of a leader in removing anxiety.

"On Instagram at hacking your leadership and leave us review on itunes. Or for this week's episode I WanNa talk about leadership anxiety. Not, anxiety, from a diagnosis standpoint, rather a philosophical one. Virtually, no one can say they've never felt anxious. Anxiety is simply a realization that a person has free will. Because with free will comes the ability to make decisions that either get us closer to where we WANNA. Go or take us further away from where we WANNA go. We all know someone who seems to self sabotage. These people subconsciously eliminate their options because the very existence of options is too much to handle. If you only have one option, the anxiety of potentially making a wrong decision goes away. I once read that really great parents understand a core paradox of parenting that you are one hundred percent responsible for how your children turn out, and that you accomplish this by teaching them that they are one hundred percent responsible for how they turn out. And I really believe this applies to leadership to great leaders. Hold themselves one hundred percent responsible for the outcomes of their teams, while simultaneously feeling no responsibility for the choices made by their people. And I know what you're thinking. Really a great leader as someone who feels no responsibility for the choices made by their people absolutely, but you can't just take that second part by itself. It goes hand in hand with the first part, which is holding themselves one hundred percent responsible for the outcomes of their team. So think about what this means and why these people really feel any anxiety in their roles as leaders. I what does it mean to micromanage someone and mighty some leaders micromanage? Micromanaging leader is simply someone who tries to control every aspect of the job of someone reporting to them. These leaders incredibly high anxiety, many of them absolutely take one hundred percent responsibility for the outcomes of their teams, which is good, but they also take one hundred percent responsibility for the choices made by their people, and the surest way to reduce the anxiety that comes along with that is to make those decisions for their people, hence the micromanaging. Employees were micromanaged aren't typically happier engaged, but they also don't feel any anxiety over making the wrong decision because they don't really get to make any decision. The actions of their leader freeze them from any anxiety, but they're also deprived from any sort of growth or development. Conversely there are leaders were about as far from micromanaging. It gets they other people to take projects and run with them to feel empowered to feel trusted, and this works really well when things work well when the outcomes are good, but their lack of involvement in the choices made by their people allows them to feel no responsibility for the outcomes of their teams, these are the leaders that allow people to fail and then blame them for the failures. have. You ever seen a team in a corporate environment. Go from superstar status to virtually imploding in a very short period of time. Accolades and opportunities for everyone on the team riding high on fantastic outcomes, and then suddenly complete disengagement and high turnover. Look to the leadership. They undoubtedly allow their people to take the fall for a poor result rather than owning that outcome themselves. So how does the leader do both? How does the leader take one hundred percent responsibility for the outcomes of their team while simultaneously feeling no responsibility for the choices made by their people. It starts an acknowledgement of how people are motivated to make good choices. It isn't done with techniques exercises. It happens when leader show personal risk and vulnerability. The best way to know if you can trust, someone is to trust them, but nothing is as empowering was free to employees than the knowledge that they have the freedom to grow and to fail without significant personal risk to themselves. That you as their leader have decided to take on that responsibility for them, because the anxiety that comes with that responsibility can limit their potential. The feeling that they are responsible for the outcomes of the team is constraining, and it usually leads to a lack of risk-taking, no matter how thoughtful or planned, it might be. But when employees feel the freedom of being able to make their own choices combined with the knowledge that their leader is shouldering the responsibility of the outcome, the vast majority of employees earn it in their actions. They inherently fill the void left by you, taking the responsibility of the outcomes with an enormous sense of responsibility to you, their leader and a desire not to let you down. That's who people are. That's what people do when you're action. Show them their trusted. They earned the trust. You've already given them. Now here's where the anxiety part comes in think about the last time you thought responsible for a business outcome, a number on a scorecard, an important metric for increasing profitability. Think about what he felt like. Feel it for a minute. Now, think of the last time he felt responsible to another person to a relationship the last time he didn't WanNa, let a person down because you valued their opinion of you. How did that feel? Different right. The first one feels out of your hands like you're at the mercy of forces beyond your control, while still responsible for them, the second feels totally within your control, still a deep feeling of responsibility but one that leaves you knowing what you have to do. It might still be hard. You're in control of it. If your leader, people try to stop thinking of yourself as someone whose job it is to own the decisions of your people and instead focus on making sure your people are acutely aware of the freedom. They have to make their own decisions. The real growth that takes place, both in that employees as well as in your relationship with them happens in the moments when they fail, and they see you

So we're GONNA talk about those shortcuts 'cause like in the process of. Moving forward fast I can't. I for. Right 'cause. There's everything done. Like it's impossible so yet. Look for shortcuts and so one icing about this whole like I don't know. Maybe it's bad, but say for me. It's like I tried everything like. Prepaid. Plan I just.

How To Sleep Well

"Everyone and welcome chairman steals metro. Could it UK's mental health pod cost at the moment? We're doing things differently because of the epidemic, so which has into experts about ways that we can put a mental health and also find out about how things are going. To I'm going to be trusting Dr L. Stanley. He's asleep expert and the author of how to sleep well. We're going to be finding out how to get a good night's rest, and how to not like a Bro. In state for the last eight years, initially started working in St Elevation Medicine working alongside the World Air Force. Looking at things like hey. Like jet like shift shiftwork medicines, you can take than safely. Fly Medicines. You take a good night's sleep and safety fly the next day. I was involved in there for ten years, and I moved to the University of Savvy where we created and ran the world's largest trials slate aboard. He does a twenty four bed. Unit mainly looking at the effects of medication on sleep after about thirteen years that I became fame months. Oh, I travel the world now talking to people who listen about slaves, a mainly healthcare professionals, doctors nurses but I did talk to public and for various groups and charities. So that's that's my background so I've published thirty eight scientific publications with psychologists sites, geologists sleep. Scientists ECCENTRICITY but a board. Knowledge and experience of slave. I'm talking. During the coronavirus epidemic I'm so. A lot of people are struggling with their sleep at the moment. What kind of troubles do think we will be having? Troubles the people are having a sort of threefold. Rarely one is of course it's a time of stress. Anxiety for people and the thing about anxiety is some degree of anxiety. Good It's bodies early warning system it keeps US alum to threat, so we can stay safe, but of course once I caught his over. To a high degree of anxiety or stress, and that's going to keep your body in going in higher. And that's GONNA make getting to sleep a vastly more problematical. The second aspect of is just the lack of. Vitim moutain in our lives We don't have to get up to get the train to go to work. We don't have to commute home from work and therefore need our dinner when we've got a home so that lack of structure retain off what he's crazy team, but that lack may be affecting sleep and finally. Just, the the fact to the way lockdown the fact that we can't go out we. We may be snacking mall than eating. Papa meals were not necessarily getting access to you know a sufficient amount of bright light of sunlight. Keep US awake and you know the. We're drifting maybe but. We also can say this from another side. The actually this time of lockdown is actually maybe. Time to develop healthy habits to actually go to bed when you're sleeping. Because you can and wake up off the white man sleep V. A. N. Wake up naturally without an alarm clock because you don't have that commute into work of into schooling, your Home Office is just three feet away from your bed. Then why not trying to develop those healthy habits and for parent spend that time with your children in inducing a good healthy sleep patterns, so it's not all bad this this lockdown on not necessarily what about people who are finding it difficult just getting to sleep tool these days because of the stresses, the news or just generally work on around them. Well this is this is the big problem is essentially the the absolutely requisite full getting a good night's sleep folding asleep is you have to have a quiet mind if your mind is? Racing stressed you won't get to sleep so the biggest cause of sleep problems even before the pandemic was with stress was widely because people forgotten how to relax out to wind down of an evening. We most people bedtime routine is to switch the TV of have a P brush their teeth and to flop into bed, Vavra, expecting sleep to happen. It just doesn't so in order to get a good night's state. We need to have a quiet mind now how you caught in your mind. Well. That's individual. There's no one way of doing i. mean personally. I read every night before I go to bed, but that might not work for you so drinking camel multi doing mindfulness meditation. Doing Yoga listening to pink. Floyd vaguely loudly doesn't matter what you do. As long as you enjoy what you do and you're willing to do it each and every night, but you need to avoid watching the late night news avoid opening the gas pedal the mortgage bill, but before you go to bed and do something nice and calming and relaxing before we go to bed, say now maybe is the opportunity to instill that good habit in yourself.

Go and. It sounds so kind of. Oh, if wishy washy, but I created a little wiggle room. It creates ace, and it's the tightness that would get me like the tightness of I feel anxious and it still happens. I have to remind myself this weekend the day you called, and we haven't even talked this by the way because I've been so busy, but I had sort of sweaty anxious day, and it wasn't that bad. It was just one of those days where it was like, a, you know, a lot to do and I felt really rigid and tight and whatever and I didn't leave a ton of room until afterward. Why do I feel like this? And it was like oh. Everything my body's tight, I'm feeling overwhelmed, and this and this. I mean because really when we are rigid when it's a it's a really good way to explain why it doesn't work to be so rigid with our benchmarks. I need to go five miles today. Six miles tomorrow because there's a tightness there right with that rigidity. There's a tightness that perpetuates the anxiety that kind of feeds it, so that's why it can't feel really irresponsible. But that's why kind of letting up a little and moving toward not necessarily making it all about anxiety. Like, okay, I'm going to go to the movies to challenge my anxiety..

"Lost and so out of control but this podcast today is about tuning in in listening to our body in mind in making space for learning more about ourselves and and what we want you might feel that you need to get more peace to feel more peaceful when we allow space for polls instead of trying to push through when we try and push through with focused on not wanting to fill what we don't one and trying to do what we feel we need to do in in my experience that can become quite brutal i'm very taxing on your nerves so just creating that space to say okay i am suffering there is pain in may there's disturbance in may with anxiety with what i'm going through how can i just allow space to pause and regroup and loko what are might need than the year ahead the months ahead to help me support myself more and this is where we can review you how we feel about anxiety very often we feel that anxieties an invisible enemy aware under attack but it sin inside state anxieties within us i think just reframing mountain looking at anxieties a messenger and anxiety may be bringing us a hint that this something deep within us that wants to be nourished or heard that really is a different way of looking at anxiety that softens the edges and allow space for some selfreflection on healing and the the acceptance pieces well to accept what's going on in to know that we have the tools and resources and support we need to care for ourselves to actually put ourselves at the front of the line yeah is something that again is is when expectations coming we expect that we should coq we fill the others expect that we should cope others may well be expecting that we should be coping doing more failing differently but really that snow a reasonable expectation is still a healthy expectations so it is about just really softening the edges and looking into a selves and seeing how can i support myself more in the year ahead and we cannot knowledge and accept i don't like the situation and i don't like how it feels but when we fight tip anxiety pushes back home and resistance causes persistence it just makes the situation.
