Forrest and Rick sit down with Dr. Susan David, the creator of the concept of Emotional Agility, or what allows us to navigate our complex emotions, make choices aligned with our values, and ultimately lead more authentic and fulfilling lives.
Forrest and Dr. Rick focus on one of the most common, and most important, questions they get about attachment theory: can we heal our attachment wounds, and become more securely attached?
Rick and Forrest are joined by award-winning journalist Michael Krasny for a Being Well episode focused on how to stay curious, navigate times of transition, and relate to the modern media landscape in healthy ways.

Dr. Benjamin Hardy helps us explore how we can create massive change by applying “10x thinking,” a mindset that embraces a radically different version of ourselves and our lives.
Just like how physical flexibility is the amount of stretch in our muscles, the ability they have to bend without breaking, psychological flexibility is the same quality in our minds.

There are times in our lives when we recognize that something’s got to change. Today Forrest and I explore a big question: What goes into making who we are, and how can we give ourselves the freedom to grow and change over time?
We all have something we want to do “some day,” but for most of us “some day” just never seems to come around. On today’s episode of the podcast, Forrest and I explore how to make 2021 the year you finally put all the pieces together, and achieve the goals you’ve set for yourself.
It’s easy to “go with the flow” during our often busy lives. When things are going well this is great, but when our lives are less satisfying inertia can be a powerful enemy. To get out of a rut, we need to learn how to “pivot” in order to make the big changes that can point us in the right direction.
