Here’s Your Reminder That It’s Okay To Disconnect

Here’s Your Reminder That It’s Okay To Disconnect

René encourages you to review how you’re using electronics and take steps to minimize the feelings of frustration that can bubble up when you’re constantly available and bombarded with information 24/7.

Our guest-host shares what led her to change some of the settings on her phone and computer last year, and details her methods.

“I’ve found notifications to be a disruptive presence in my life to a certain extent. And so where I can I’ve limited them or shut them down a bit so I can have more space to be in the present moment,” René says in this episode.

It’s Not What Happens to You, It’s How You React that Matters

Finding happiness (or just being happy) while living through a pandemic can be challenging, even on a good day. Fortunately, Dr. H has some thoughts on how to find happy moments regardless of your situation.

He shares one of his favorite stories about the philosopher Epictetus that just might be what you need to hear to change your mindset. It’s a story he’s shared on the podcast before, but as Dr. H reminds us in this episode it’s important to, “find ways to direct your mind toward satisfying thoughts, ideas and activities, and away from the places of misery and complaint.” 

Get a copy of Dr. H’s newest book, ADHD 2.0 at DrHallowell.com or by clicking HERE. You can also find it wherever books are sold!
