Evolutionary psychologist, Doug Lisle, PhD and social scientist, Jen Howk, PhD discuss the following listener question: Why do people love formulaic media and entertainment? Most of the pop music that dominates the charts is nearly identical. It uses the same four chords in the same progression with similar melodies and lyrical themes. Most of the blockbuster films that gross massive amounts of money tell variations on the same story with similar effects, music, and actors. This seems even more pronounced in the era when massive franchises like Marvel and Star Wars reboot and re-hash the same stories/characters over and over… and over. Even content on TikTok or instagram tends to be made from a formula— the influencers tend to look the same, use the same music, and say/do the same things. Whether in music, film, TV, or social media, we seem to be stuck in a rut where very little “original” art rises to the surface. I know there is a pleasure trap aspect to this, but I am curious why the majority of our human brains find this type of content so appealing to begin with. Why do we seem to get so much enjoyment from reliving the same experiences? Why do we find these particular types of media so fascinating?

In this episode, I talk to DryBar founder and best-selling author Alli Webb about finding joy when your life is a mess, how to find yourself again after a crisis, dealing with imposter syndrome, and so much more! When Drybar and its world-famous blowouts took off seemingly overnight, she found herself surrounded by celebrity clients like Zooey Deschanel, Jennifer Garner, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Julia Roberts. She was named to multiple prestigious business lists, published a New York Times bestselling book—all before she turned forty. But it wasn't until her marriage fell apart, her teenage son entered rehab unexpectedly, and she no longer found meaning in the wildly successful business she had built that Alli realized she was spiraling into deep depression. She'd lost sight of what made her happy in favor of an aimless push to succeed above all. Something had to give. Piece by piece, Alli began to reinvent her personal and professional life with the goal of accepting her messy truth. She learned how to embrace the honest in lieu of the perfect and realized that most of life happens somewhere in the middle, between the laughter and the tears.

Welcome back to rediscover, fam! This month's episode covers a full spectrum of topics, from fun and exciting life updates and travel plans to an in-depth examination of how to abandon societal norms, expectations, and timelines for a life filled with happiness and contentment in the here and now. On the fun and exciting end of the spectrum, we're chatting about the highly anticipated release of 1989 (Taylor's Version)!!! We're taking it back to the 1989 era and the album's initial relase in 2014, reminiscing and rediscovering where we were and what was going on in our lives at the time. It's incredible how much that album shaped our experiences by simply playing in the background of our lives almost a decade ago, and the milestones moments that will forever be tied to those songs. And speaking of milestone moments, Jess and Steven are about to embark on PHASE 2 of nomad life, and you won't BELIEVE where their world travel adventures are taking them next! As always, Jess has insight, inspiration, tips and advice to share as they get ready to head back out into the great wide somewhere. It's going to be pure magic, so don't miss it! As we plunge deeper into our conversation and round out the episode, we're examining closely the words and language we use to describe our circumstances, and how shifting our perspectives and diminishing both negativity and systemic fear can help us to find joy and fulfillment in every season. We're learning how to block out the "shoulds," pave our own path, and remind ourselves that no matter where we are on our journey, we're exactly where we're meant to be. That's something to contemplate as the holiday season approaches, and we hope that our experiences and all that we've learned and discovered (or rediscovered) about ourselves will help you to embody your fullest, most authentic self in every context that you find yourself in. So if you're at Thanksgiving dinner and you notice the conversation steering itself in your direction, we're with you in solidarity and in spirit - you've got this! Happy Thanksgiving from our little rediscover fam to you and yours - we're so thankful to be on this wild and wonderful journey with you!

Evolutionary psychologist, Doug Lisle, PhD and social scientist, Jen Howk, PhD discuss the following listener questions: 1. If I am understanding what you have said in the past about decision making and free will, the main thing that changes/influences our behavior is new information. So, we really don't have "free will" in our decision making like we think? If this is true, does it mean that -- if we want to have more control or positive results in our decision making -- rather than "trying harder" or "thinking more clearly" we should fastidiously study the situation and accumulate the most information possible. Then we kind of sit back and see what our computer-brain-cost/benefit/analyzer ultimately decides -- even though we like to think WE are making the decision? Maybe I have this wrong. Can you elaborate? 2. I love learning about evolutionary psychology because everything makes so much sense. However, this knowledge often makes me sad because I now realize how many things I can't change, specifically I can't make my disagreeable husband nicer. Do the doctors ever feel this way? Any tips for not feeling defeated? 3. Generally advice givers tend to give big picture advice. However, from listening to the doctors I see much more attention paid to the little minute to minute and hour to hour processes of any meaningful goal. For example, the whole concept of running experiments is to change conditions at the granular level to see if they result in a meaningful difference in affect that supports the general direction someone wants to move in. Why is it that people tend to ignore the small details of change? Is it because they are not very interesting I.e they don't really sell books? 4. Which political system is best aligned with human nature? And if we could click our fingers and make it happen, what would that look like in reality?

If I could delete a belief that limits change and happiness in people's lives I think it would be all or nothing. When we think we have to do it all, we often end up doing nothing, because it isn't possible to do it all, especially all at once. In this episode I‘ll share some insights on the results I have witnessed from all or none thinking and how both thoughts usually land us in the same place. More importantly, I'll offer you the one belief that will not only set you free from the vicious cycle of all or none thinking, but it will give you the support you need to transform your life.

Social scientist, Jen Howk, PhD discuss the following topics: I loved your last podcast about Buddhism and other perspectives in psychology. I'd love to hear more of your perspectives on spirituality such as how you would describe the personality profiles of popular gurus Byron Katie and Eckhart Tolle. They both claim to have been in close to catatonic states of misery/depression, suicidal and then overnight, woke up enlightened. If it's not enlightenment, what are they experiencing? I'd also like to hear your views on other personality profiles such as influencers who end up being con artist and other weird, modern day criminals. Can all personality types be equally happy if they apply diligent effort to worthwhile goals? ie all other things being equal, would a low conscientiousness individual be as happy as a high conscientiousness individual if they both applied their version of diligent effort and equally felt they hadn't left 'anything on the table' (despite those levels of effort and results being very different) I am curious how you would define a “sentient” organism. Does sentience even exist? If we are simply a system of electrical signals that indicates our next action based on a pre-programmed reward/punishment function, then are we truly more “sentient” than the AI personalities currently being built by OpenAI and Google, etc? How and where do we draw the line between an organism or machine that is sentient and one that is not? Do you think this should any implications for the construction and ownership of AI personalities and computer-based neural networks?

EPISODE SUMMARY: We're going on a rich educational journey with Dr. Adam Gower, a seasoned professional in the realms of real estate and finance. With more than 30 years of experience under his belt, Dr. Gower charts his unconventional route into the industry, from knocking on doors in Southern California to becoming a successful real estate mogul. He also shares some intriguing insights into the evolution of real estate capital raising, painting a vivid picture of how the process has changed from the pre-internet days to the present digital era. The conversation takes a fascinating turn when we examine the impacts of regulatory changes brought by the Jobs Act of 2012 and the Securities Act of 1933 on digital marketing in commercial real estate. These regulations, which were originally designed to stimulate market liquidity and provide access to cash for startups, had unexpected outcomes. Dr. Gower weighs in on these changes and their ripple effects on the industry, illuminating how his experiences raising capital in the 80s and 90s have been affected by this evolving landscape. In the final stretch of our chat, we delve into the philosophical side of life and discuss the elusive pursuit of happiness. With reference to studies conducted by Lord Richard Layer, we explore the idea that our happiness level is often influenced by how we compare ourselves to others. This comparison can lead to a relentless cycle of desire for more. Our discussion extends to the importance of finding contentment in what we have and the impact of social media on our emotions. We also touch on understanding investment risk, the best strategies for investing during a downturn, and the importance of patience and diversification in investments. So, tune in and embark on this enlightening journey with us and Dr. Gower. You'll surely come away with a wealth of knowledge and insights that will enrich both your real estate pursuits and overall life experience. ADAM'S BIO: Adam Gower Ph.D. is a 30+ year real estate veteran with over $1.5 billion of CRE investment and finance experience who today builds digital marketing systems for real estate professionals who want to raise equity capital online (aka ‘crowdfunding') and he has taught over 4,500 individuals how to build wealth, preserve capital, and earn passive income from investing in real estate. He has over $7 billion of experience transacting distressed real estate for major institutions and banks.

In this episode, Baylor shares two powerful lessons he has learned. Firstly, while waiting at the vet's office with his puppy, he observes a three-legged dog in the waiting room that is happy and playful, despite its missing leg. Baylor reflects on how we can learn from this dog's attitude towards perceived weaknesses and embrace our own uniqueness. Secondly, Baylor recounts his experience visiting Haiti, where impoverished children find joy and happiness through playing soccer with a deflated ball. He questions the concept of poverty and emphasizes the importance of believing in one's own happiness. Baylor encourages listeners to not believe everything they think, especially negative thoughts or insecurities, and to focus on their strengths rather than perceived weaknesses.
Disney star Alyson Stoner joins me on the podcast this week to talk about their own personal journey with anxiety and what they are doing now to help youth overcome anxiety and mental health struggles. Behind the scenes, Alyson suffered from a variety of health conditions that affected every area of their life. Their personal healing journey led them to their truest passion, studying the mind-body connection and creating tools alongside experts that help people heal and empower themselves. Alyson Stoner is a multi-disciplinary artist known for their on-screen acting, dancing, singing work in 200+ TV shows, movies, and music videos, and as an online content creator and health advocate. Appearing in franchises such as Step Up and Camp Rock to dancing with the likes of Missy Elliott and Eminem, Alyson has been producing their own content since their late teens, including the Simplexity podcast and mental health platform Movement Genius, building a growing online community of 5.2m+ folks. Much of Alyson's passion is invested in advocating for improved mental health resources and long-term prevention strategies for youth and underrepresented communities. They're currently working on concrete solutions that support artists and entertainers who face unique psychological, physical, professional, financial, and social challenges. Their "Toddler-to-Trainwreck" video is an introduction to a much larger and urgent conversation that they hope to address in Dear Hollywood. Dear Hollywood is a tell-all podcast about the “toddler-to-trainwreck” pipeline that young artists face in the entertainment industry. Following their viral op-ed, host Alyson unpacks the cultural phenomenon of child stardom from the most comprehensive, illuminating vantage point ever offered. Incorporating expertise from child development specialists, artist-to-artist conversations with famous child performers, and Alyson's own never-been-shared stories, the audience is invited into a powerful and proactive conversation around high-performing children, while simultaneously gaining deep insight and wisdom for their own journey towards healing and self-empowerment.

It seems as though 2020 was the impetus for division and global tensions: racial, political, health-related and more. We were faced with an unprecedented virus, and a reckoning with racial injustices that paved the way for more open-minded discussions and understanding. And yet, the uncomfortable weight of not knowing the right thing to say—or saying the wrong thing—hasn't quite lifted. Political correctness reigns supreme and cancel culture is still a very real threat. So what do we do when we're afraid to speak up? Darlene Brock and Julie Bender unpack this worry and how to overcome the paralysis as women of faith. They also offer practical mindset tips for being vocal about what you believe in a world that believes the contrary. Quote of the episode: “Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak. Courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen." —Winston Churchill Resources Related Content: —How Do We Embrace Truth in a Radically Shifting Culture? – 215 —Our Duty to Celebrate Racial Diversity as Women of Faith – 207 —Finding Happiness with a Scary Future Ahead – 190 —How Do I Raise My Kids when the Culture and Bible Collide? with Dr. Jim Denison – 177 Follow Us on Social Media!

Evolutionary psychologist, Doug Lisle, PhD discusses the following listener questions: 1. I have read "Blueprint" many times and am still learning so much from that book. It is obvious to me how much of who we are and what we do is heritable. So, what do you do when no one else gets that? Or knows that? Recently I was having coffee with good friends and they were discussing a mother of one of them who is a serious hoarder. The conversation went on forever while they tried to decide why she is like that...bad childhood, loves collecting stuff, mean husband, etc. Finally, I suggested "genetics" and they all stopped, looked at me in horror, and went right back into all their own opinions. Finally, to avoid getting frustrated with everyone, I had to leave. This kind of thing happens all the time as people talk openly about their kids, husbands, friends, etc. I feel like I can't have an interesting or intelligent conversation with anyone, anymore. 2. I believe that a lot of my problems stem from the fact that my cost-benefit mechanism is faulty! I can never decide on a course of action and tend to miss out on things because I can't come to a decision as to which option is best. I've jumped from job to job throughout my life, I'm now 50, but have never achieved anything career wise due to indecision and the feeling the grass is always greener on the other side. This spills over into every aspect of life as I'm constantly comparing myself to others and their achievements and feel I'm a failure in comparison. Is it too late to do something about my over analysing of everything and is there a way to make my internal machinery stop going around in circles and finally reach some sort of a conclusion? Thanks very much from someone who thought they'd never make sense of humanity until discovering evolutionary psychology! 3. How do you find the balance between “trying” (gritting through something), or alternatively focusing on changing an environmental variable or circumstance. Based on carefully listening to the Drs discussing motivational dilemmas and procrastination it all comes down to a C/B analysis (most of which in unconscious). Therefore what rule of thumb or questions do you ask yourself to know when it is a good idea to potentially grit something out so you can “go up a learning” curve or instead focus your energy on changing something in the environment? To put this into context, I find my job boring… really boring… I can barely focus on the subject matter without my brain wondering, I can also see that if I focused for a few weeks or so and was diligent I would do better and start receiving positive feedback which could change how I feel i.e chane the C/B. So what's the procedure here? How can I tell if I should be gritting it out or changing some variable in my environment. 4. Do men only love their children for as long as they love their mother? I'm a divorced single mom with two small children. I live in Florida while my ex lives in Colorado and he never comes to visit his children and rarely even calls them. He seemed like a loving father when we were together. When our marriage was falling apart, he seemed to care less about the children. Even though he says he loves them, his actions don't show it. I have sacrificed so much for these children and love them more than I love my own life, while he's happy just paying child support and sitting on the sidelines while I do all the work. I'm not complaining at all, I actually prefer it this way, I'm just baffled at how men who claim to love their children can spend years without seeing them. I have many divorced friends in this same situation. It seems to me that men only love their children for as long as they love the mother. Is this true? Is a man's love for his children dependent upon how much he loves the mother? Even King Henry VIII was an example of this.

Welcome Back No-Problem Parents! Are you or your teen at your wit's end? Is stress, anxiety, depression, anger, regret, self-doubt, or mind-chatter, ruining your life? Is it holding you back, destroying your happiness, or impacting your health, sleep, relationships, or work?

Meet Julian Robus: Your Guide to Finding Happiness and Healing Julian Robus knows the depths of despair and the journey to recovery intimately. At the age of 45, in December 2008, he found himself on the brink of hopelessness. In a world rife with quick fixes and distractions, Julian took a different path. He never believed in the crutches of alcohol, or drugs, and didn't find success in therapy. So he embarked on a quest to discover a natural way out of his anguish. Julian knew there had to be an alternative, a lifeline that didn't require pharmaceuticals or traditional counseling. He cast a wide net, exploring various avenues for healing – from NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) to EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques), from Life Coaching to Reiki, and even venturing into the world of hypnosis. But it wasn't until 2010 that he stumbled upon what he would call "proper, real meditation." Meditation became the cornerstone of his transformation, the key that unlocked the door to a brighter future. The positive impact was so profound that Julian was inspired to share his newfound knowledge with others. However, he was steadfast in his commitment to only teach when he had achieved a place of genuine well-being himself. Seven years later, while on a walk with his loyal canine companion, Julian's empathetic nature shone through. A neighbor confided that his wife was grappling with mental health issues, and without hesitation, Julian extended a helping hand. Through just nine happiness recovery sessions, this woman experienced a remarkable turnaround, reclaiming her joy and resilience. Now, Julian Robus is on a mission to empower struggling adults and teens with the life-changing techniques that brought him back from the brink. As a stress reduction, mindfulness, and meditation instructor, he guides individuals toward instant relief, the clarity to banish negativity, and the restoration of happiness. Julian's promise is clear: "You'll START FEELING BETTER in 5 minutes – or it's FREE." Julian Robus embodies the belief that within each of us lies the power to overcome, heal, and find joy once more. His journey from despair to enlightenment serves as an inspiring testament to the transformative potential of holistic approaches to well-being. Julian is here to show you that there is indeed another way – a way that leads to a life filled with happiness, hope, and renewed purpose. Julian founded Happy Onion Living which helps you to: Quickly quiete your racing or negative mind. Understand what negative thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and behaviours really are.

Brad Chandler is a devoted father who was determined to find help for his son's anxiety. In his quest for answers, Brad found himself on a life-changing Zoom call with a woman recommended by a friend. Within just five minutes, she identified a tick in Brad's behavior, pointing out that he blinked excessively when discussing his childhood. This astute observation led to a revelation: Brad might have unresolved childhood trauma that was contributing to his son's anxiety.Eager to do whatever it took to help his son, Brad eagerly accepted an invitation to travel to Park City and work with Mike's Navy Seal husband and the woman he had connected with. Little did he know that a mere three-hour session with the Navy Seal would transform every aspect of his life.During their time together, Brad and the Navy Seal delved into events from Brad's childhood that had caused him immense stress and a sense of helplessness. The experience allowed Brad to realize that he had been carrying unresolved issues from his past, which in turn affected his son's anxiety.Motivated by the newfound understanding, Brad dedicated himself to healing and gaining control over his life. This transformative journey not only empowered Brad to become the rock his son needed but also inspired him to help others facing similar challenges.Today, Brad Chandler is a beacon of hope for families dealing with anxiety and unresolved trauma. Through his own experiences and the knowledge gained from his transformational session, he works tirelessly to support and guide individuals towards healing and resilience. Brad's story serves as a testament to the power of confronting and overcoming our past, ultimately leading to a brighter future for ourselves and our loved ones.Connect with Brad Chandler: https://www.bradchandler.com/Primary Topics Covered:1.

This Stoic philosopher believes that our reactions and attitudes, more than the events themselves, determine our emotional and mental states. An event in itself is neutral; it's the interpretation we give it that makes it positive or negative. This philosophy encourages personal responsibility, self-reflection, and emotional control, teaching us to focus on altering our perspectives rather than trying to change uncontrollable external circumstances. Actionable Item: Identify a recent event that you perceived negatively. Try reframing it and looking at it from a different perspective. How does changing your perception of the event alter your emotional response to it? Journaling Prompt: Think about a significant event in your life. How did your perspective on this event affect your feelings and reactions? If you could change your view of it now, how would that change your experience? Engage with Stoic philosophy through "Finding Happiness in the Present," a guided meditation for transcendence. Built upon Seneca's wisdom, this journey guides you towards a deep appreciation and enjoyment of the present, free from anxious dependence on the future. Transcend worldly concerns and cultivate inner peace by truly living in the now.

Most of us have that thing that can transport us out of our current state of being and to happiness, whether it's a smell, taste, song, etc. But what happens when you can't seem to find those things to help you find your happiness? This week my guest Sean Douglas and I discuss his own experience with deep depression and suicide attempt. Through the help of those around him, he was able to start to change his mindset, pull himself out of the dark, and in turn, create a space where he can help others who may find themselves in a similar situation. Sean is The Founder of The Success Corps, a U.S. Air Force Veteran, a TEDx speaker, a Master Resilience Implementer & Suicide Awareness Trainer, a Business Positioning Strategist, an International Radio Show Host of Life Transformation Radio, and an International Bestselling Author. Sean works with entrepreneurs, speakers, and business owners to improve their positioning in the market, increasing profitability while decreasing their anxiety and stress so their business thrives. While their businesses thrive they boost their own overall happiness. We'll touch on: [3:38] What does happiness mean to Sean? [5:45] How to hunt for the good by asking in every scenario, “But what is great about this?” [8:45] How we can build a habit of seeing more positive or negative thoughts by focusing on what we want to see. [13:13] Looking for your own confirmation bias. [18:05] Revisiting a time before Sean had the tools to process emotions and hard times. [19:44] Sean's own experience with suicide ideation. [22:47] Pressure to perform how we feel we should. [26:07] How people can begin to find hope and help if they are feeling isolated. [32:50] How can someone create a little more happiness each day starting today Resources: Podcast Resources: https://www.simonacostantini.com/resources Apply to be a podcast guest: https://forms.gle/WtXHsqZmiEhCwTAk6 Connect with Simona www.instagram.com/simona__costantini www.instagram.com/costantiniproductions www.instagram.com/happinesshappenspodcast https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXtOxOAuXxW7c5cYKdAEfWg https://twitter.com/simona_cos https://www.facebook.com/costantiniproductions https://www.facebook.com/happinesshappenspodcast/ www.simonacostantini.com Connect with Sean https://www.thesuccesscorps.com/

Is it possible to leave a stable job, to chase your dreams, and find happiness? This episode chronicles a remarkable journey that started from a FedEx office to pursuing passions and dreams. Tune in as I share the exhilarating yet terrifying story of leaving the security of a job at FedEx behind to embrace the unknown and follow my heart. Hear about the overwhelming opportunities, the intoxicating freedom, and the struggle to stay present amidst past trauma. Finding joy in the journey, not just the destination, is key as we explore the notion that success can't be measured against the progress of others. I share my personal experiences of the bumpy road to realizing my dreams, including the inevitable failures and the importance of accepting them as a part of the growth process. In a significant career leap, I transition from FedEx to a gig in social media, with all its inherent challenges and blessings. Additionally, I express the need for support, whether it's subscribing to the podcast, following our Instagram, or leaving reviews. Join me as I navigate this transformative phase of life, and hopefully inspire you to chase your dreams too. https://linktr.ee/Thehassleofhair
Finding Happiness in a Complex World Navigating the complexities of life, particularly regarding moral and ethical choices, can be challenging. In this talk, we explore the personal benefits of making healthy, kind, and "correct" choices because we benefit from positive, stress-reducing decisions. New Happiness Podcast episode with Dr. Robert Puff, Newport Beach Psychologist
We spend a lot of time thinking about happiness. Wondering if we are truly happy, and how we could get there. We try to predict what will make us happy in the future, or what might lead to misery down the road. We chase success, money, and love. We work hard or maybe move from place to place to find fulfillment. But what actually brings us contentment is often very different from what we thought, and researchers are trying to quantify what leads to that lasting sense of well-being.On this episode, we'll explore happiness - and how we can find more of it. We'll hear about the longest-running study on the subject, find out if money is really a game-changer, and talk to a therapist who says we need to stop obsessing over happiness.
