Glenn Murphy returns to Plant Yourself to talk about how we can self-regulate our emotions and actions during a time of great societal upheaval and division.
We talk about our own impulses to “fight” with others, and where there's a messy intertwining of good intentions and unresolved psychological issues.
We discuss the physiology of the stress response, particularly as it relates to the shame and guilt that accompanies some of our attempts to right wrongs and redress injustices.
We talk about why and how to take breaks from work, from social media, and from the need to be always “in the struggle.”
And a strategy for transcending our need to be “right” and instead seek to make the world a better place by embodying sanity, peace, and love.
