Since this is so directly tied to the Psychological aspects of the last episode – we wanted to address this one quickly. We talk about how we relate to our emotions, the struggle to be honest with ourselves, and how we recognize our positive efforts to practice this dimension of self-care.
We chat about the status of mental and intellectual self-care and the multitude of effects on other dimensions. Chock full of good advice, and more than a few psychotic breaks – you know, just for fun!
We deep dive on the first of our dimensions of self-care -what does it mean to attend to your physical self?
Bo, our emotional crash dummy for this season, has a bit of what you might call a motivation problem – can getting off his ass help? How might he go about it, and what are the pitfalls? Is there more to it than a gym membership? Come find out!
This week we are introducing the topic of self-actualization, as well as introducing the last four of our Two Smokes Dimensions of Self-Care.
We chat about the differences between habits and routines, and introduce the concept of self-awareness before introducing the first four of our dimensions of self-care.
We introduce and try to lock down some definitions of the self – including the long history of attempts to define and then improve it. We then explore how these attempts have blossomed into a full-blown industry, and how that might look as it progresses over time.
That’s right, we came back for another season of asshattery! This episode resets the bit for out returning listeners and serves as a warning for any noobs that may wander by.
This season we are focusing on the idea of self-help, toxic altruism, and aspects of self care that, just might have, gotten a bit out of control.
We look at happiness, what is it, how do we know we are feeling it?
In the search for our own happiness, we made the executive decision to end Season 5 a few episodes early. there is just a lot going on and if your hobby starts to feel like work – maybe it’s time to take a breather. See you again soon!
We look at charitable contributions in the US. Who, how much, and what for are all up for grabs.
End of the year-itis had set in by the time we sat down to record, so we basically do a game of “hey remember when this happened?” The number of things that we’d forgotten about due to the OMGScaryPandemic. Happy New Year!
