Did I mention that according to BuzzFeed, the podcast is life-changing? Oh right, maybe I did. Anyway, check out 10 Life-Changing Things to Try in June.
Coming up: To celebrate our 20th episode, we’re going to do an episode that features our listeners. So call, email, post your response by June 24, 2015, to one of these questions:
— if you could change one aspect of a relationship, what would you change? Huge, trivial, any relationship.
— what happiness demerit would you give yourself? what gold star would you bestow?
Thanks so much to the folks who have already sent in comments. Fascinating.
Exciting big reveal: Listeners, "Henry Molofsky" is no longer just a name that we list in the credits at the end of the show. Our producer/captive audience Henry steps up to the microphone to share what he's tried at home, and what works for him.
Try This at Home: Imitate a spiritual master. My spiritual master is St. Therese of Lisieux, and her spiritual memoir (if you're curious) is Story of a Soul. I was surprised to hear the person that Elizabeth picked as her spiritual master! Hint: that person's autobiography is called Audition. (Sorry, I promised to post a photo of my shrine to St. Therese, but I'm in Australia now, and I forgot to take the picture before I left town.)
Better Than Before Habit Strategy: We discuss the power of the Strategy of Monitoring. Elizabeth explains why this strategy is particularly helpful to her as a type 1 diabetic.
Listener Question: "How do you remain happy through a transition?"
Gretchen’s Demerit: I ignored my pink eye.
Elizabeth’s Gold Star: Elizabeth's friend Mindy Wilson gets a gold star for giving Elizabeth a cookbook - with the knowledge that Elizabeth is an Obliger, and is much more likely to cook if she knows Mindy (and we) are expecting it.
