Life Changing Habits Series #2
I've been doing the morning gratitude walk for almost fifty years. It works. One addition that you may want to add is a recommendation from Deepak Chopra. As you walk by the home of a neighbor, send them good wishes.
I was thinking about life-changing habits recently, and whether they ought to be different in some ways for men and women? Men's depression has been described by someone, I can't remember who, as "learned helplessness". Cultivating a shift of attention for men needs to be cultivated with a shift in intention too, as purpose seems, at least to my amateur eye, more important to men and connection more important to women.
It would be a very interesting topic for a podcast to explore whether males require more task-based and a stoical approach to resolving emotional difficulties, whereas women would rather talk (these are bell curves of course, not absolutes). The vast majority of therapists of course are female and I wonder if sex differences should be taken into consideration more?
