5 Steps To Boost Your Mental Health | Lori Gottlieb

The Art of Charm

In today’s episode, we cover mental health with Lori Gottlieb. Lori is a psychotherapist in Los Angeles, co-host of the podcast Dear Therapists, and the author of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone.Mental health is a priority now more than ever, so what are the overlooked signs that someone is struggling with mental health, how do you know if you should talk to a professional, and why is boundary setting crucial to positive mental health?What to Listen For Introduction – 0:00 What are the overlooked signs that someone is struggling with mental health issues? What is the value in seeing a therapist versus talking to your friends and family about issues you’re experiencing in life? The self-sabotaging stories we tell ourselves – 11:12  Why do we tell ourselves stories about what happens to us and how do those stories have lasting negative impacts on us and the people around us? What impact do the people around us have on our mental health and what can you do if your friends aren’t healthy for you? Setting and maintaining boundaries – 24:24 How do you set boundaries and maintain them with people who constantly violate them?  Finding the right person – 47:05 What is the number one question you should ask yourself when on a first date? Mental health is something many people struggle with, but often don’t talk about. The signs that someone is struggling can be easily overlooked if you’re not aware of them. It’s important to be there for your loved ones and help them get the help they need if you see any of these signs. If you’re experiencing mental health issues, it’s valuable to seek out therapy. Friends and family are great sources of support, but sometimes talking to somebody neutral who isn’t invested in our lives can be really helpful, even lifesaving. A Word From Our SponsorsDo you LOVE the toolbox episodes?

It’s Never Too Late To Start Over: A Discussion With Lori Gottlieb, Psychotherapist and Best Selling Author (Part 2)

The Lo Life

Lori is back for round two with Lo as the two discuss her journey to becoming a psychotherapist. She left a successful career and made the decision to go to medical school. She followed her passion and started a new chapter later in life. Even though Lori is celebrated as an expert when it comes to therapy, relationships, and understanding ourselves, she says her greatest credential is that she too is a card-carrying member of the human race. She’s opening up about why her upbringing of “let’s pretend we’re happy” ultimately drew her to the field of therapy, and detailing how she believes we can make changes to allow the next generation to better talk about our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs – even when they may drastically differ from those of our family. In today’s episode, Lori is also sharing how we can go about finding a therapist that is right for us; just because we had one poor experience doesn’t mean we’re not built for therapy. It turns out therapy isn’t too different from dating - the number one predictor of success in a therapeutic relationship is our relationship to our therapist, so sometimes it can help to date around. Lori and Lo also discuss our relationship to the person we talk to the most in life: ourselves. Lo is all too familiar that sometimes we treat ourselves very differently than we’d treat a loved one or even a stranger, and the two explore how we can change these habits. And of course, Lori is answering Lo’s round of rapid-fire questions, which wraps with some words to live by that will take you into the weekend in a place of self-compassion.  Please be sure to rate, follow, review, and send to a friend so we can keep this sh!t show on the road, kings and kweens! Follow your host Lo on Instagram @stylelvr and make sure to drink some water... we know you’re thirsty.
