Being Well Podcast Guided Practice: Achieving Your New Year’s Resolutions
January 4, 2021

Want to achieve your New Year’s resolutions in 2021? In this short episode, Dr. Rick Hanson walks you through a guided practice focused on helping you reach your goals, which of course goes hand in hand with helping you achieve your New Year’s resolutions.

From Dr. Hanson: Because our brains are like Velcro for the bad and Teflon for the good, frustration, worry, and stress are quickly wired into your nervous system. To beat this negativity bias, Dr. Hanson teaches powerful methods – using the science of positive neuroplasticity – for turning everyday experiences into lasting inner strengths including mindfulness, self-compassion, and confidence, for truly resilient well-being.

The Foundations of Well-Being brings together the lessons of a lifetime of practice into one year-long online program. In just an hour a week, Dr. Hanson will show you how to cope with life’s challenges by developing the 12 Pillars of Well-Being to grow inner strengths and resources inside yourself, such as steadying your mind by becoming more focused and calm with a strong sense of inner peace; rising to challenges by motivating yourself and overcoming old fears; improving relationships and feeling more connected, satisfied, and compassionate; being on your own side by letting go of self-criticism and being more compassionate toward yourself; growing an unshakeable core of resilient happiness even in difficult times; and being more confident with a bone-deep knowing of your own goodness and abilities.
