27 Sep Being Well Podcast: Self-Help’s Biggest Misconceptions, Part 2: No Pain No Gain, Hedonic Adaptation, and Meditation
In the second of two episodes, Dr. Rick and Forrest Hanson explore common self-help myths and misconceptions, including ones related to hedonic adaptation, “no pain no gain,” and meditation.
2:30: Misconception #1: People can’t really change in lasting ways/Hedonic adaptation stops people from becoming happier.
17:00: Misconception #2: No pain, no gain. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
27:50: Misconception #3: You can only meditate by sitting quietly on a cushion.
41:15: Misconception #4: I can heal myself all on my own. Relying on a therapist means something is “wrong” with me.
50:00: Misconception #5: All therapy is talk therapy. It’s really cognitive and top-down.
