09 Oct Being Well Podcast: When Others are Undependable
Today we have a special episode for you concluding the strength of Intimacy. This episode is taken from my online Foundations of Well-Being program and focuses on a key component of Intimacy that we alluded to during our previous episode on Unilateral Virtue: when others are undependable in our relationships.
We have a natural desire to trust a reliable world – but life happens, and no person or organization is perfectly dependable. So, we often under- or over-react to undependability, harming ourselves and others.
During this talk, I focus on how we can face undependability squarely and cultivate the inner resources that help us cope with it.
2:00: Our expectations of dependability.
5:00: The undependability of experience.
7:30: The inevitability of disappointment.
12:30: Centering amidst disappointment.
17:00: Seeing what IS dependable.
Dr. Rick Hanson offers 57 brief practices that strengthen the neural networks of deep well-being and resilience.
This program gives you just one thing to focus on each day to gradually change your brain for the better so you can handle the stresses and challenges of everyday life with greater ease, inner strength, and confidence.
Each practice is grounded in modern neuroscience and ancient wisdom, and Rick’s background in the very real world of business and raising a family.
Practices include a 1-2 minute video explaining the importance of the practice and how to do it, a recap, reflection, and suggestion for integrating it into your daily life, weekly emails with inspiration, support, and encouragement, an audio download, transcription, and printable handout.
They’re quick and easy to do, and each repetition strengthens key neural circuits – just like building a muscle in the gym. It’s the law of little things: a small thing repeated each day adds up to big results. Just one thing… that could change your life.
