Cut the BS: How to Use Profanity and Reality Bombs to Make Shift Happen with Dr. Jodie Eckleberry Hunt & Gary John Bishop

Original Air Date Wednesday,February 3, 2021 

Eleanor Roosevelt famously said, “Life is what you make it.”

And while it is true, we have little control over what happens outside of ourselves, we have total control over the experience we have on the inside. We all make mistakes but there is no need to judge ourselves for them. When we give ourselves permission to let things go we regain our power and become better aligned with the rhythm and flow of life. During the global pandemic, many people are feeling a sense of loss. To uncover strategies for creating opportunities from the uncertainty, Positive Psychology Podcast Host, Lisa Cypers Kamen speaks with two authors who flirt with profanity to help people shift their outlook on life. Jodie Eckleberry-Hunt is a Clinical Psychologist who researches and writes about how targeted profanity provides emotional catharsis. Gary John Bishop is a personal development sage who takes a practical approach to the game of life.
