Register for my 2020 Virtual Mental Health Solutions Summit here:https://www.drleafconference.com **Early bird tickets end October 15 Neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s can be incredibly frightening.

What to do when wellness trends are harming, not helping, your mental health + The mental health benefits of being open-minded & curious (Interview with mindbodygreen founder and co-CEO Jason Wachob)

The wellness world can be overwhelming. There is so much advice out there, much of which is conflicting, that it is sometimes hard to know what to do or even who to believe. It can also affect our mental health, making us feel guilty if something that promises to “change your life forever” doesn’t work for us, or if we fail to do all 700 things we need to do each day to be healthy. In this podcast, I speak with successful entrepreneur and founder of the global wellness platform MindBodyGreen Jason Wachob about this wellness paradox, the current state of wellness industry, how to avoid wellness fads and trends, how to navigate the wellness industry so it helps, not harms, your mental health, the importance of being open-minded and curious, the best wellness advice from top experts, how to run a successful business and more!

Signs someone may be self-harming & how you can help + What to do if you, or someone you know is suicidal (Interview with therapist Kati Morton)

Suicide is a public health crisis with approximately 800,000 people dying by suicide each year. It is the 10th leading cause of deaths in the US and the 2nd leading cause of death globally.

What to do when wellness trends are harming, not helping, your mental health + The mental health benefits of being open-minded & curious (Interview with mindbodygreen founder and co-CEO Jason Wachob)

The wellness world can be overwhelming. There is so much advice out there, much of which is conflicting, that it is sometimes hard to know what to do or even who to believe. It can also affect our mental health, making us feel guilty if something that promises to “change your life forever” doesn’t work for us, or if we fail to do all 700 things we need to do each day to be healthy. In this podcast, I speak with successful entrepreneur and founder of the global wellness platform MindBodyGreen Jason Wachob about this wellness paradox, the current state of wellness industry, how to avoid wellness fads and trends, how to navigate the wellness industry so it helps, not harms, your mental health, the importance of being open-minded and curious, the best wellness advice from top experts, how to run a successful business and more!

Signs someone may be self-harming & how you can help + What to do if you, or someone you know is suicidal (Interview with therapist Kati Morton)

Suicide is a public health crisis with approximately 800,000 people dying by suicide each year. It is the 10th leading cause of deaths in the US and the 2nd leading cause of death globally. We all struggle with challenges in life, and find different ways to deal with and overcome these challenges. But what happens when our ability to cope turns toxic? What happens when our desire to survive ends up hurting us? In this podcast, I speak with therapist, author and grief counselor Kati Morten about self-harming behavior, how to identify and help someone who is self-harming, the difference between self-injuries and suicidal ideation, and what to do when someone you love is suicidal.

Food can bring people together—just try think about one major event or holiday that is not marked by a shared meal.
