The self-help and personal development space has EXPLODED over the past handful of years, and that explosion in content and complexity has left us asking one, simple question:
How DO we live the best, most aligned life possible?
Today we’re digging into this big, complex question with some cutting-edge research on process-based psychology.
Health problems and mental illness are often intertwined. Good mental health extends beyond positive feelings, but spending time taking small steps can improve your physical health and wellbeing as well.
Recently Dr. Steven Hayes and other researchers on his team examined over 55,000 research studies to uncover the 30 or so core processes that we can focus on in order to improve our mental wellbeing and the way we experience life. That’s what we’re digging into on today’s episode.
Today’s guest is Dr. Diana Hill. She is a clinical psychologist and co-author of ACT Daily Journal: Get unstuck and live fully with Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. Through her online teachings, executive coaching, clinical supervision, and private therapy practice, Diana encourages clients to build psychological flexibility so that they can live more meaningful and fulfilling lives. She is the founder and host of the new podcast show Your Life in Process and a co-founder of the Psychologists Off the Clock podcast. Diana blogs for Psychology Today and offers regular workshops in compassion and ACT for clinicians and the general public.
In this episode, we talk about what process-based therapy is. We talk about some of the core processes included in it and how to use them to thrive in our lives. We get face to face with some of the most basic processes of mindfulness and our relationship to our thoughts and how we can use these processes to pivot into taking the actions we truly want to take in our lives…rather than the ones that are holding us back.
