Podcast Episode: Emotional Awareness: Check in with Yourself and Boost Your financial Well-Being

April 19, 2021
Financial wellness is like a fitness plan to improve your relationship with money, no matter what your financial situation is.
 
Understandably, all of us have money worries now and again. But just like how eating healthily and exercising makes us feel good in our bodies, positive money habits help us feel financially well.
 
Like a fitness plan, financial wellness covers routines and behaviors that make you feel more satisfied with your financial situation: whether feeling secure in your financial future or paying bills on time. And, of course, being able to afford things you enjoy, from holidays to the occasional shopping binge.
 
Tomorrow we welcome Lawrence Sprung. Lawrence is a wealth advisor and the founder of Mitlin Financial.
 
Lawrence and his firm prioritize clients first. He and the team consistently help clients make healthy financial decisions and offer a tremendous client experience that leverages today’s top tools and technology.
 
Jake and Lawrence the importance of checking in on your life from time to time to evaluate where you are in your life. This habit of emotional awareness provides you with a strong foundation to make healthy decisions within your life.

Podcast Episode: Are We Moving Towards a Better Society or Regressing?

Podcast Episode: Are We Moving Towards a Better Society or Regressing?

April 5, 2021
Man is considered the most intelligent amongst all animals. Hence, human beings are not only superior but also evolved, and civilized. Civilisation has seen a stark evolution over many decades now for us to stand where we are today. How we perceive "today" and being "evolved" is very subjective.
 
Looking around in our own vicinity, with the rise of crime, our immediate environment compromised for selfish motives, spoilt habits and unnecessarily luxurious lifestyles, also living with societal prejudices about gender, religion, and caste, are we really as evolved as we think we are?
 
We are joined by Donald Conte who is a Professor Emeritus, Department of Earth Sciences, California University of Pennsylvania. A consultant, a author and researcher. He also runs a blog called http://thisisnotyourpracticelife.com/

Podcast Episode: Understanding Emotions Part V: Fear and Surprise

Podcast Episode: Understanding Emotions Part V: Fear and Surprise

March 29, 2021
Facial expression recognition is mediated by a distributed neural system in humans that involves multiple, bilateral regions. There are six basic facial expressions that may be recognized in humans (fear, sadness, surprise, happiness, anger, and disgust); however, fearful faces and surprised faces are easily confused in rapid presentation.
 
In today's episode, Jake explains how the concept of surprise and fear is relevant to many aspects of human behavior. It also affects beliefs about other events. When a person takes an unexpected stance that violates his or her self-interest, the person’s arguments are surprising and quite often more persuasive.

Podcast Episode: Understanding Emotions Part IV: Disgust and Contempt

Podcast Episode: Understanding Emotions Part IV: Disgust and Contempt

March 22, 2021
Today, Jake breaks down the 4th part of Understanding Emotions. He discusses Disgust and Contempt.
 
Analyzing the contempt as an intergroup emotion, we suggest that contempt and anger are not built upon each other, whereas disgust seems to be the most elementary and specific basic-emotional antecedent of contempt.
 
Want to enjoy positive work relationships, healthy relationships with friends, family and partners? Dump the contempt. Listen well. And pump up the positivity! When those more vulnerable feelings are explored in safety and grieved dyadically, a corrective emotional experience may occur. You can’t build a temple of appreciation without fully excavating the building site.

Podcast Episode: Part III: Guilt and Shame

Podcast Episode: Part III: Guilt and Shame

March 15, 2021
In today's episode Jake discusses potentially the unhealthy cycles of shame and guilt. We encourage you to think of instances in your life where you may be requiring deed based performances from people in order for you to extend forgiveness, and ask yourself are these deeds really necessary for you to forgive them?
 
Similar to respect and trust, it is up to us to extend these to people. Is it really necessary for us to require people to ‘earn’ these things from us with an arbitrary deed? On the flip side, maybe you think certain people in your life are requiring too much from you. Jake gives everyday examples of where this may occur and delves deeper into forgiveness and the emotions of shame and guilt.

Podcast Episode: Are Dating Apps Worth It?

Podcast Episode: Are Dating Apps Worth It?

February 15, 2021
Dating is a funny old business. Add in the wide range of dating apps and the whole process becomes a lot more complicated. Tinder, Bumble, Hinge, there are now so many social networking options where you can meet and talk to new people, that you can whizz through hundreds of new faces without even thinking about it. It’s like speed dating on steroids.
 
Dating apps have spent the last decade persuading us to date online, wiping away the stigma that clung to the practice from its origins in the original dot-com era. Couples are now more likely to form a relationship through online dating than any other avenue, according to a 2019 Stanford study. Talking up someone at a bar let alone finding someone through friends, family or work can seem as quaint as a love sonnet or waiting for marriage to have sex.
 
On today's episode we welcome Adam Sikorski & Angel Littlefield who have a conversation about their experiences in the dating world through the different dating apps. They share what they have encountered and communicate what impact it has brought up in their own lives.

Podcast Episode: Overcoming Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Podcast Episode: Overcoming Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

February 1, 2021
For some people, merely recalling a traumatic event feels just like going through it all over again. Psychotherapy and some other strategies can help.
 
At some time in life, at least half of us will live through a terrifying event in which we experience, are threatened by, or witness grave physical harm. The stress of a life-threatening trauma takes time to ease, whether it arises from a car accident, assault, rape, terrorist attack, combat, or a natural disaster, such as the Asian tsunami and its aftermath.
 
Most people recover with the support of family and friends, but some develop post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), an anxiety disorder that may last a lifetime if appropriate help is not available.
 
In today's episode we welcome Eddie Davenport who is a clinical social worker student. Eddie speaks to us about his journey of overcoming his PTSD.
