The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

Host Dr. L says: Let’s move from 2019 into 2020 with a newly found practice of optimism! Although there might be some individuals who just seem more optimistic or positive, the truth is that we can all learn to practice optimism and weave some of the tenants into our life. One of the first ways that optimism can be more present in your life is by challenging the idea that painful things that happen in your life are permanent. If we begin to think of difficult times as temporary we are more likely to make better choices and feel more hopeful about the future.


Optimism can be learned and if you practice certain elements of optimism routinely, you can weave a more optimistic perspective into your world.

Believing that things are not permanent can help you feel more hopeful.

Taking things as they come and using an internal dialogue that includes, “this is temporary”, is a helpful practice.
