Proof That You Suck

It’s incredibly easy to believe that you suck.  Perhaps you’ve looked in the mirror and actually said those words to yourself.  But where did that unhealthy core belief come from? And what is a core belief anyway?

In this episode, Greg takes a page from the Cognitive Behavioral Therapy rulebook to explain the difference between healthy and unhealthy core beliefs, as well as how to counteract negative core beliefs by evaluating positive evidence from your life.

Does Meditation Really Help Mental Health?

I’ve never really liked the idea of just plain meditation, in part because I never really understood why I should meditate on nothing, and in another part because whenever I meditated on nothing, I ended up either thinking of more items for my to do list, or I ended up just complaining to God.

That changed earlier this year, though, when I learned an incredibly simplified method of meditation that is not new age-y or overly distractive.

So in this episode I share with you a simple way to find more calm in just 5-10 minutes each day.

But I also want to share with you some of my own tricks for deeper prayer, because studies show that both meditation and prayer provide benefits to your brain.

Beth Schrader and Caring For Your Spouse

Throughout their years of marriage, Beth Schrader’s husband has struggled with depression, anxiety and ADHD.  After hearing us discuss Greg’s mental health issues on our “The Hidden Battle” podcast, Beth started to put the pieces together that her husband’s battles were not just occasional, but every day battles that become smaller but never quite go away.   

Not knowing how best to help her husband, Beth began battling shame and worry that, fortunately, lead to more positive conversations and approaches and mental health within their home.

Beth courageously volunteered to share her story as the spouse of someone suffering from mental health issues and joins Greg to discuss the difficulties of loving someone who is in such pain.
