In this solo episode today, I talk about the influence alcohol has had on my life. I am quick to state that I am not an alcoholic. I have no tragic story about how alcohol has destroyed my family or caused cancer. However, I do have a story about my relationship with alcohol and how it is easily the most subtractive activity that I participate in.

We are honoured to have, Amy Robertson, MSc. OT, on the Finding My Psych Podcast today. Amy and I discuss her most recent decision to move back to the East Coast to be closer to family. We spend time talking about the power of hitting the reset button in life and excitement/anxiety that come along with taking strategic leaps.
The evidence is clear – A plant-based vegan diet is protective against emerging disease and in some cases can reverse symptoms associated with heart disease, diabetes, etc. The Finding My Psych team is dedicated to promoting emotional wellness, preventative dietary habits, and physical fitness.
We are all familiar with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). This potentially debilitating presentation is found in individuals that have suffered traumatic experiences, typically from external forces with significant power over the individual.
In today’s episode, we return to basics and provide a detailed framework for positive health outcomes through the lens of Health Psychology and Behavioural Medicine. In the past, we have barely touched on the important contribution that behaviour has on physical and emotional wellbeing.
In today’s episode, we expand on work by Dr. David Burns as we explore common thinking fallacies we all, at one time or another, find ourselves using. In our previous three-part series on cognitive behavioural therapy skill building, we define frequently used distortions in every day thinking.
In today’s episode, I reflect on the pitfalls of running that become more probable as we age. As we move through our 40s, new problems appear. While our cardiovascular fitness remains strong with each decade, our body’s ability to maintain the speed of our 20s quickly slips by.
In today’s episode, I reflect on my own physical and emotional fitness setback. The COVID19 experience has whittled away at everyones health. While we find ourselves trying to survive each horrific news cycle describing the race to vaccinate before variants shove us back towards a hopeless scenario of having no vaccine at all, emotionally and physically, we have given up.
In today’s episode, I bring us back to basics in a review of how behaviour impacts wellness. I share my personal experience several years ago when I went through a depressive episode – I realize now that activating adaptive behaviour would have helped in treating difficult to manage symptoms.
In our previous episode, “Review of Netflix Series Surviving Death – Spirituality in Psychology,” on the Finding My Psych Podcast, we believe that we missed an opportunity. In our excitement, it is clear that we glossed over the impact of spirituality on wellness.
