"The opposite of addiction isn't sobriety, it's connection"Psychologists talk about for a good life you need to have 1. biology, 2. social & 3. psychological all in a good place. Having even just one of these in a bad place will cause unhappiness. Most say mental health is not as simple as 'taking an anti-depressant'. “The loss of sadness. How psychology transformed normal sorrow into a depressive disorder.” Feeling a full range of emotions is also considered 'healthy'. Sadness isn't badness. They say depression is feeling unhappy without knowing why, whereas sadness is feeling bad but knowing why. Sadness done well can help us know what actual goodness and treasure it.

And how can we overcome it? Johann Hari has seen our current methods fail firsthand, as he has watched loved ones struggle to manage their addictions. He started to wonder why we treat addicts the way we do -- and if there might be a better way. As he shares in this deeply personal talk, his questions took him around the world, and unearthed some surprising and hopeful ways of thinking about an age-old problem."“Civilisation began the first time a person cast an angry word instead of a rock.”"we should do one thing a day that scares us.""No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.""Women are like teabags. You don't know how strong they are until you put them in hot water. (don’t go there!)""Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people."

"Desire is a contract you have made with yourself to be unhappy." Studies show that internally motivated people are happier than externally motivated (eg you want something for your gratification vs status). So it’s more internal vs external desire to me. “We should be focusing on outcome inequality not income inequality.” Income * life events = outcome. ‘Life events’ (eg discrimination, racism, etc) matter hugely, more than income starting point? Well it depends :slightly_smiling_face: (what a cop out)! Having the ‘veil of ignorance’ and a meritocratic society should mean people get the outcomes they deserve, not bad / good ones based on unfair circumstance? “If all your political beliefs line up into one political party you are not a clear thinker.” No political system is perfect, but IMO one big flaw of the two party system that countries like the US, UK and Australia have is that if you support one party, then no matter how bad the president is people are likely to continue to support their party’s candidate! “A healthy person wants 10,000 things. A stick person wants one thing”… and is that one thing even health? Or is it to spend time with their loved ones? Are you spending as much time with your loved ones as you should?

#506: How to Improve Your Speaking Voice

The Art of Manliness

When it comes to your personal presentation, there’s one aspect that often gets overlooked: your voice. Your voice is a big part of what makes you, you, and what makes you likable and influential. Yet you probably don't think too much about it. Not to mention, my guest today argues, you’re likely not even using your true voice thanks to bad habits you’ve picked up throughout your life. His name is Roger Love, he’s a voice coach who's worked with some of the world's most famous singers and speakers, and the author of Set Your Voice Free. Today on the show, Roger explains why having a clear, confident, pleasant speaking voice is important for success in your career and your life, the the biggest ways people sabotage their voice, including voice fry, uptalk, and being nasally, and how these issues can be addressed and eliminated. Roger also shares how to speak in a more masculine way, and why you're probably not speaking loudly enough. Get the show notes at aom.is/voice.
