Celebrate Kids Podcast with Dr. Kathy
Many are taking note of the rise in loneliness and it's correlation to mental health issues in teens. Dr. Kathy considers what some are calling a medical pandemic of loneliness, and how parents and caretakers to notice concerns in teens and how we can equip them to face loneliness and other concerns.
A Response to the Epidemic of Loneliness | Darren Rouanzoin This Sunday, Pastor Darren shared a message with us about the value, necessity and implications of Biblical Community. We learn about our responsibility in the alleviation of the worlds oldest problem, loneliness.
We assume, because of our modern loneliness epidemic, that being alone is bad, not realizing that there are healthy forms of loneliness and unhealthy forms. The legendary John Prine wrote a powerful song entitled The Speed of The Sound of Loneliness. His lyric lends insight into a common reality for leaders, “you've broken the speed of the sound of loneliness, you're out there runnin' just to be on the run.” After launching, incubating, or purchasing a business, the owner or founder begins running at a speed that very few can or will match in the remaining days, years, and decades of the business. For many, it is a hyper-speed, superhuman pace, unsustainable over time. There is a sound to loneliness, a narrative, a rhythm that can be of great value to the leader, but for most, they ignore and blast right through the speed of the sound of loneliness and they continue running at a superhuman pace because it is the only way to give momentary satisfaction for our obsession of productivity. We make excuses and say that we really do care about “quality” or “customer service”, when in reality what we really care about is that this “perfect” business we grew has no spot or blemish when placed into the care of others. Loneliness forces us to see the warts, the blemishes, the imperfections. Loneliness forces us to reckon with our own humanity… our limitations. Loneliness offers an opportunity to find joy in the imperfections, or to deny that imperfections can exist and pick up the speed of our running so that we can “feel like we're doing something”. A dear mentor of mine told me in November of 2015, “My favorite thing about you is not your productivity”. It stung. I am well known and regarded precisely for my productivity and affinity for systems and processes, and my friend to a surgeon's scalpel to the thing that I embraced the most. His encouragement felt like rebuke, and it was needed. It would have never been heard without time and space for relationship…an ironic twist on solitude. There is healthy loneliness and unhealthy loneliness. There are healthy relationships and unhealthy relationships. If you are to be an executive leader of impact, then you will make time for solitude. Recalling the story of how Nike wooed Michael Jordan as its game-changing endorsement personality Sonny Vacarro was shocked when Nike founder Phil Knight decided to change his mind and commit the entirety of the Nike basketball endorsement money to one player. Originally against the unprecedented idea, Vacarro asked Knight, “What changed?” Knight's response? “I went for a run.” The story may not be true… but the principle is. A portion of that solitude will be committed to a few, meaningful, sincere, and intentional relationships. Relationships with people in person, and with people in publication. Nearly one out of every two adults has not read a book in the last 12 months. That is not an option for an Executive Leader. If Executive Leadership is creating proximity to motivate a team to pursue the named future you see, then part of the proximity you create are towards relationships that can provide mutual sourcing for motivation and vision. Rarely does a person develop a vision from nothing. We all generate vision from a body of source material, experiences, and inputs. Leaders need curated input, but too often we crank up the volume of the masses in the search for a non-caloric “silver bullet” instead of eagerly pursuing the small, subtle voice of wisdom that is dripping with sustenance. How do we know if our time is being devoted to wise solitude, whether alone or with someone, or to noisy isolation as we infinite-scroll the doomsday logs at the ready in our feeds? The Solitude Matrix helps us to understand where we can make time for solitude; both alone and with others. Imagine a quadrant where your horizontal axis on the top is devoted to substance and on the left and surface on the right. The vertical axis on the left side is devoted to solitary at the top and social at the bottom. When a leader devotes themselves to surface-level conversation in a solitary surrounding (top right) it leads to the hopelessness of unchecked voices in our minds, a belief that what you see is always because perspective has no access, and solutions are fabricated many times to problems that don't exist (or at least are not significant). When a leader devotes themselves to surface-level conversation in a social surrounding (bottom right) it leads to an interaction that feels fake. Not a relationship, but instead an obligation. In these fake interactions, we find ourselves obsessed with “who's got it more together”, and wanting to become the highest “spender” so we can steal the show. Fake conversations leave us empty as we leave hoping that our social standing improved during the interaction. When a leader devotes themselves to substance-level conversation in a social surrounding (bottom left) they are actively building relationships. There is a focus on connecting with a healthy mix of emotion and empathy. A relationship interaction from a leader is comfortable with awkward silence because simple presence is valued, and there is a shared decor (SWAG, music, food, or event) that is meaningful. When a leader devotes themselves to substance-level conversation in a solitary surrounding (top left) they achieve the hallmark of leadership; wisdom and vision. Healthy solitude allows for active listening by reading or thinking, writing to capture what they hear, thoughtful planning to map out clarity, and intentional reflection to celebrate wins and mourn losses. Sherry Turkle defines healthy solitude as “the time you become familiar and comfortable with yourself...Without solitude, we cannot construct a stable sense of self.” (Turkle pg.. 61). Solitude with distraction robs us of that, leaving us confused and setting us up to hurt other people. This leads to the myth of the modern brainstorming sessions to be our primary mode of breeding helpful bouts of creativity. Turkle (pg. 62) goes on to say that “Our brains are most productive when there is no demand that they be reactive...new ideas are more likely to emerge from people thinking on their own. Solitude is where we can learn to trust our imagination.” Solitude is the healthy version of being alone On the other hand, the philosopher and theologian Paul Tillich says, “Language...has created the word ‘loneliness' to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word ‘solitude' to express the glory of being alone.” Loneliness is painful because it allows the space for shame to be revealed. Shame in our past, shame in our present. When we medicate with the substance of busy-ness then we ensure that shame remains safely swept under the rug. Loneliness is not the same as solitude. Picasso said, “Without great solitude, no serious work is possible”. The human spirit NEEDS healthy alone time.

Applying to college in the U.S. is an multi-step, often emotional process. It can be challenging to write personal essays that construct neat narratives. And while we often try our best to get accepted to universities we like and can afford, for many of us, the college application process involves our first explicit experience of rejection and reframing of back-up options as opportunities. In this episode, teens from This Teenage Life talk about their experiences of the college application process, and contributors in college talk about their transition from high school to college. This episode is sponsored by the XQ institute. Check them out at xqsuperschool.org. If you're a student, or even a teacher who may be listening to better understand your students, you can join the conversation at XQ America on social.

“The loneliness crisis was created by Covid isolation, increased social media use, remote workspaces, automated transactions & overall lack of personal interaction,” tweeted Dr. Nicole Saphier. “This is manmade and only we can make it better.” Dr. Nicole Saphier is a board-certified radiologist with advanced fellowship training in breast and oncologic imaging. She is a frequent contributor on Fox News, Fox Business, and MSNBC. “I'm not sure who needs to hear this but, opposing vaccine mandates is not equivalent to opposing vaccines,” Dr. Saphier posted. She has spoken widely about the government's response to the COVID-19 pandemic, focussing on the topic in her 2021 book “Panic Attack“. In Panic Attack, she uncovers the hypocrisy and hysteria that have characterized so much of the American Pandemic response.

We're in the midst of a serious teen mental health crisis. The number of teenagers and young adults with clinical depression more than doubled between 2011 and 2021. The suicide rate for teenagers nearly doubled from 2007 to 2019, and tripled for 10- to 14-year- olds in particular. According to the C.D.C., nearly 25 percent of teenage girls made a suicide plan in 2021. What's going on in the lives of teenagers that has produced such a startling uptick?Jean Twenge, a research psychologist and author of the books “iGen” and “Generations,” has spent years poring over mental health statistics and survey data trying to answer this question. In her view, the story in the data is clear: Our teenage mental health crisis is the direct product of the rise of smartphones and social media.So I wanted to have Twenge on the show to elicit and interrogate her argument. What is the actual evidence for the smartphone thesis? How do we account for the fact that teenage girls and liberals are having far worse outcomes than boys and conservatives? What about alternate explanations for this crisis, like meritocratic pressure, the economy, school shootings and climate change? And if Twenge is right that the culprit is smartphones, then what can we do to address that problem?If you are having thoughts of suicide, call or text 988 to reach the 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline or go to SpeakingOfSuicide.com/resources for a list of additional resources.Listen to this podcast in New York Times Audio, our new iOS app for news subscribers.

Author, Evangelical theologian, and recently deceased Christian reformer Rachel Held Evans poignantly stated, "A lot of people think the hardest part about religious doubt is feeling isolated from God. It's not. At least in my experience, the hardest part about doubt is feeling isolated from your community." In this episode Valerie and Nathan share their thoughts and personal experiences about how faith expansion can be both a deeply sacred experience of personal enlightenment but also profoundly isolating, lonely, and relationally painful as we try to relate to our former circles of family and friends. Why is this so hard? Val and Nathan offer some ideas: Our Former Inner Circle LDS tribe (both friends and family) 1. Sometimes build their relational lives around the church, which makes relating to those different from themselves challenging; especially in relationships where both parties were accustomed to relating to one another only through church-related common beliefs 2. Sometimes seem to struggle being genuinely interested, curious, and open to the experiences of their friends and loved ones now differing from themselves and relate to us from a place of "concern, heal, reconvert, or fix" 3. Are conditioned by teachings at church that those of us in faith expansion are "falling away" or "led by Satan" in our experiences, thereby making it challenging to want to explain, justify, self defend (as we have heard this rhetoric ourselves all of our lives). 4. Judge those of us no longer fully aligned with them. This judgment might be cloaked in 'concern', but its essence (possibly unconscious but still felt by us) is "without the church you are lost. As a faithful church member, my testimony insulates me in certainly, thereby also preventing me from curiosity, openness, and a true desire to learn from you." These divides create an added layer of grief on top of the grieve of faith and trust crisis. These divides prevent us from drawing upon our core family and friends when we're need them most. This episode was is offered with the hope to help you feel seen, understood, and not alone as we struggle relationally in our faith expansion. Book referenced in this episode: Searching for Sunday.

Please enjoy this Encore presentation of Tricia and Doro's conversation with Dr Vivek Murthy. This was originally released on October 6, 2020. Dr. Vivek Murthy served as the 19th Surgeon General of the United States from December 2014 to April 2017. During this time, Dr. Murthy created initiatives to tackle the United States' most urgent public health issues, which included addition, chronic stress, and demystifing vaccines. In addition to his role as U.S. Surgeon General, Dr. Murthy also served as the Vice Admiral of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, where he commanded a uniformed service of 6,600 public health officers, serving the most underserved and vulnerable populations in over 800 locations domestically and abroad. He worked with thousands of Commissioned Corps officers to strengthen the Corps and protect the nation from Ebola and Zika and to respond to the Flint water crisis, major hurricanes, and frequent health care shortages in rural communities. Recently, Dr. Murthy published “Together: The Healing Power of Human Connection in a Sometimes Lonely World”, which looks at loneliness as a public health concern and explores the ways in which we can overcome it. We are honored to be able to share this special conversation with you, which was also featured in this year's 2020 Co-Mindfulness Summit.

For a couple years during my decade at Outward Bound, I worked for the youth program with kids that were about 14-16 year old. I remember once there was a boy, maybe 14 years old, and I asked him what kind of life he would like to live. Did he want to travel the world? Live in a city or somewhere rural? And he said, “You know what's weird? I don't know why, but I see myself as this old guy, just wanting to sit at a cafe at watch the world. And I'm wearing a beret, listening to people play music outside, and I'm smoking a pipe and just thinking and reading. It's like I feel old already. It's weird. My friends…they want to play sports and have fancy cars and stuff. But this is what I want to do, it's how I see myself. And they make fun of me when I say that. I feel like I don't fit in.” And I'm like who IS this kid? It was so beautiful to hear this, and I told him not to worry - that he'd find people with a broader range of interests and views, especially once he got to college. If I knew then what I know now, I would have taken that opportunity to talk about Old Souls with him. You may have heard that phrase before - “Old Soul.” This isn't literally a soul that's been around for thousands of years. After all, souls are ageless and transcend the concept of time and beginnings and endings. Rather, it's more about a feeling we have that we can see through the illusions of existence, and we experience a deep sense of longing to “return home” back to Source. So while some people relentlessly pursue material or worldly goals like money, material objects, prestigious titles, lovers, and professional success, Old Souls can't help but consistenly seek truth, wisdom, love, and freedom beyond the material plane. Now, I want to be clear here that an Old Soul is not “better” than a younger soul. Old Souls just have an easier time connecting with the essence of who they truly are beyond their socially conditioned identity and seeing past illusions - in people and in expereinces. Trust me, they've got their shit to work with too, like the shadow sides of elitism and self-destructive nihilism. In general, there are some qualities that most Old Souls can identify with. They tend to be contemplative and philosophical. They're able to see the bigger picture more easily, and they are drawn to knowledge, wisdom, and truth. They also tend toward spirituality (though not necessarily religion). And they are usually more emotionally and psychologically mature than peers. Old Souls also tend to experience, at some point, existential anxiety, depression or apathy - especially when feeling trapped in the mundane aspects of everyday life. This is why it's important for them to have a sense of meaning or a passion or hobby they're really into. Without it, they are prone to falling into an existential crisis. When an Old Soul can find that deep sense of meaning and purpose, they can feel less burdened by everyday life and see the deeper meaning of things. They know and accept that everything has a reason, and can start to embrace the parts of life that are challenging or that have suffering - as in the Four Noble Truths - and be able to move towards equanimity. Some Old Souls also have highly tuned intuition and often experience déjà vu or intense empathy for others' feelings. As you can tell by now, what comes with all this is often an experience of loneliness. Since it can be a challenge to find like-minded people, how can we address this? Another quality of an Old Soul I want to touch on is their connection with spirituality. While they don't tend to lean towards fundamentalism, many may piece together their own practice that supports their understanding of existence, so they can take aspects from many different traditions - Buddhism, pagan practices, Sufism, etc. A daily practice can help foster a sense of connection to the Divine and to all other beings. Carl Jung wrote, “Loneliness does not come from having no people around you, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to you.” It can also be powerful for an Old Soul to explore areas of self-expression through art, adventures, and other creative outlets to help address this loneliness. The awareness that we are an Old Soul often arises after a spiritual awakening - those pivotal moments in life that wake us out of slumber, out of that feeling that we have been dreaming the whole time. We begin to see that the ways we thought, felt, perceived, and behaved before were out of a misunderstanding of how things really were, and we begin to see - and seek - Truth. This path isn't linear. As you've heard me say before, it's a spiral, and we may revisit teachings over and over, but from a different perspective. However, because the path of an Old Soul can sometimes be lonely, it's important for us to intentionally seek out like-minded friends - a sangha - and to explore different delivery systems and forms of self-expression, in whatever way feels more authentic to us. Ultimately, there is no point at which we “arrive” and feel compelte. But there is a point at which we move beyond the limitations of the ego (the false sense of self) into closer connection with our Buddha nature, our ultimate consciousness. This is available to all beings - including YOU. You will learn:// What an Old Soul is// Some key qualities many Old Souls have// Shadow sides of an Old Soul// Why it's important that an Old Soul finds a sense of purpose// Why Old Souls tend to be “lone wolves” and how they show up in relationships// The role of creativity as an Old Soul Resources:// Episode 107: Growth and Equanimity in Everyday Life // Loner Wolf website with Alethia Luna and Mateo Sol - a great resource for soul exploration with great tool and blogposts // If you're new to the squad, grab the Rebel Buddhist Toolkit I created at RebelBuddhist.com.

The Poco a Poco Podcast with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal
Loneliness is a common experience that we all share. Whether you're in crowds of people or constantly with other people who are not peers. Maybe you're in a marriage surrounded by kids all day, or you could be in isolation and feel you have not been chosen by people. Either way, at times we can experience loneliness at some point. Instead of trying to escape it or fill that void with other things, what exactly do we need to do with that loneliness? This is what we are going to unpack and attempt to answer in this episode. The Poco a Poco podcast happens because of many generous donors, including recurring monthly donations of any amount. Thinking about helping out? You can give at https://spiritjuice.org/supportpoco.

So, are loneliness and depression really a problem these days? The US surgeon general seems to think so. Read the Plugged In Review If you've listened to any of our podcasts, please give us your feedback.
Food is so much more than just fuel for our bodies. It's also a powerful connector. Food brings us together with family and friends, and allows us to express and receive love and appreciation, spark new relationships, create memories, discover and care for the world around us, and even navigate and explore our inner emotional and spiritual landscape. Because food helps us feel connected, we may also reach for it in moments of disconnection, distress, isolation, and loneliness. We can turn to it for comfort, or for a sense of familiarity and reassurance. And that's because of a foundational, biochemical truth for every human being on this planet: When we eat food, we feel better. As Marc David unpacks in this episode, using food to self-soothe and comfort ourselves isn't all bad. In fact, the conscious use of food to feel better can actually be beneficial. Fifty-nine year old guest coaching client, Debra, endured the death of her late husband several years ago – and now finds herself again grieving the loss of a relationship – this time, a breakup. In response to her grief and sadness, Debra has noticed she's started eating compulsively in the evenings. And she feels ashamed of having gained some extra weight in recent months. Follow their conversation, as Marc explores how the loss or absence of close relationships and social ties in our lives can mean we look to food to satisfy some of our most basic needs – and how, at different times in our life, that can be a therapeutic strategy.

In the age of self-love and body positivity there is an unspoken rule that we shouldn't say we don't like being outside of our healthiest weight and size. It's taboo to even broach the subject. Jill candidly admits that she is not liking being her current weight and teaches about the difference between self-worth and confidence and explains how to be grounded in self-worth with no desire to outsource it to body image WHILE admitting that a layer of our confidence can be affected by how we look--if it's not aligned with our true self. This episode is deep and powerful, without being heavy. ------------------ The Be You podcast is hosted by Jill Herman, a champion of women's empowerment, personal development, women helping women, and being yourself without apology. Each episode features Jill's experiences with personal development and her journey to being yourself, sometimes featuring guests who are prime examples of women helping women. Being a boss no longer just refers to achievement in the workplace. Personal development and prioritizing being yourself are key ingredients in the women's empowerment movement. Jill has built a community of women helping women so that each one can reach their full potential as the badass bosses they are. Whether you're already a champion of women's empowerment, you're interested in personal development, you'd like advice on being yourself, you're looking for a community of women helping women, or you're just here for Jill's lessons and entertainment, the Be You podcast is for you. ------------------ Lisa Bilyeu on women's empowerment: “Cheer for your girls like you got pom-poms at a pep rally.” - Lisa Bilyeu Lisa Bilyeu on women helping women: “Choose your life's board members like you're building a Fortune 500 company.” - Lisa Bilyeu Lisa Bilyeu on being a boss: “Be brave.

The Mindset & Motivation Podcast
Welcome to The Mindset Mentor Podcast where in today’s episode I’m going to be telling you the truth about where most lonely feelings come from, and… I’m going to explain how you can build yourself up to be bulletproof against loneliness by becoming whole within yourself. And yes… I’m addressing one extremely big misconception that’s out there. That’s the idea that getting into a relationship will cure loneliness, and help us fix ourselves. When in reality we need to first do the work internally to “fix” ourselves and become whole, BEFORE we can truly have anything to offer in a relationship with another human being. Once you can find wholeness within yourself, then you will be able to consciously decide everyday to be happy. It is within your control to get to be happy and not have to experience “loneliness” ever again.

I'm not bringing this to your attention to fear monger you but to illuminate the truth when it comes to social isolation, healthspan, and lifespan. Not only does the data show the effects but I've seen it in my family as well which I'll share with you too. What I believe we've lost recently is human connection and while social media has given us more people to interact with, the depth of those interactions and relationships has been deeply effected. I want to share with you the importance of resilience, community, and what I believe the answer to loneliness is.
