Without values, it’s challenging to create a long-term life plan. If you don’t know what’s most important to you, you can’t make choices based on integrity. Values are the compass that keeps you on the path to accomplishing your most meaningful goals and dreams. When you know what’s essential and meaningful, you can skillfully respond with choices …
 
Self-talk that creates self-judgement, comparison, and shame is not self-empowering. It’s downright unhealthy and damaging to your self-esteem! If you’ve truly done something wrong you feel guilt about, own up to it. However, if you’re struggling with something not going to plan — for example, how to make more money, get a better job, or why your b…
 
Ever since I was a little boy, I’ve dreamt small. I was a sickly child with severe ADHD. I had a learning disability that made it hard for me to read letters.

In neuroscience, the ACC is an acronym for the anterior cingulate cortex, the part of the brain commonly called the animal or mammalian brain. Most animals have basic needs like food, shelter, safety, and procreation. If those needs are met, the animal feels safe. If not, they feel higher levels of stress and threat. Humans have the same needs. The…

We are overwhelmed by the untenable problems in the world and have little capacity left to feel like we have the agency to make a difference.

We are a species connected by our shared humanity but we act ever-more separate due to the liberalism myth of individuality. We live in a paradoxical duality: Our humanity connects us, but it doesn’t necessarily protect us. This is especially true for LGBTQ+ people in Poland, Chechnya, and Russia. Dominant religious myths and political parties have…

Do you know what you want to accomplish and how to get those things done in ways that serve your wellbeing? Smartphones, apps, and social media all have their use.

Critical thinking is not about being judgemental of other people for their ideas or beliefs.

For example, not being self-deprecating when we don’t b…

Underlying my work is my philosophy of human-heartedness.

What Are Character Traits? A simple way of framing character traits is to think of an actor playing a character in a movie. The actor needs to embody the character’s attitude and personality for the viewer to believe how the actor is behaving. Character traits are what we use to describe who we are and how we act. For example, you can describe some…
