To conclude season one of Looking Up, Dr. Deepika Chopra looks back at an amazing roster of guests who have all shared inspiring conversations with us. From Metta World Peace to Jamie Lynn Sigler to Dr. Rick Hanson and so many more, these incredible human beings have opened up to the Looking Up audience, offering their own raw and transparent stories of resiliency, struggle, hope, and of course, optimism. Now we must set aside some intentional time to reflect and integrate. Before season two starts, this episode serves as an anchor, reminding you of the eclectic stories we heard and encouraging you to relisten and relearn. Like our guests who leave with a small amount of their own meaningful “homework” at the end of each episode, stick around to hear your very own holistic and science-based exercise: a powerful breathing exercise adopted from the Indian Yogic practice of Pranayama, led by Dr. Deepika Chopra.  To purchase your own Things Are Looking Up Optimism Deck of Cards please visit ThingsAreLookingUp.co For more BTS footage of this episode and any others follow @drdeepikachopra + @allthingsarelookingup Produced by Dear Media  
This first season of Looking Up has been such an amazing experience and I’m both happy and sad it’s coming to an end. Don’t worry, there’ll be a special recap for you next week, followed by the premiere of Looking Up, season two, out September 14! Closing us out, I had the pleasure of talking to Los Angeles based Quigley Goode: soon-to-be mom, former American Idol contestant, blogger, creator, and educator. Our conversation is full of the ups and downs she’s faced since her time on the singing competition; whether that’s an understanding of what that rejection meant for her, the reinvention of herself through a new name, or the pursuit of building up self-confidence in herself and in others. Quigley is the epitome of resilience, overcoming so much and finding ways to highlight self growth and adaptability in the midst of less than ideal situations.  To purchase your own THINGS ARE LOOKING UP Optimism Deck of Cards please visit ThingsAreLookingUp.co For more BTS footage of this episode and any others follow @drdeepikachopra + @allthingsarelookingup Guest Details: @officiallyquigley Book That Has Changed The Way Quigley Lives Her Life: A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle
On this week’s episode of Looking Up, I wanted to switch up the tone a bit, and introduce you to a more casual conversation with my good friends and celebrity stylists, Jamie Mizrahi and Simone Harouche. We cover a magnitude of topics that carry great depth, and talk about all sorts of things. Whether it’s through accounts of anxious episodes and panic attacks, or the many celebrities they’ve styled and the business they’ve built together, stress or infertility, we learn how Jamie and Simone got through it all, showing support for one another along the way. I hope this conversation will inspire you to create a safe space for more open dialogue between you and those you care about. It’s important to check-in and be honest with yourself and those you hold close. If there’s one thing to take away from this episode, it’s the necessity of promoting the normalization of mental health and seeking support, and I think Jamie and Simone do such a great job at that.  To purchase your own THINGS ARE LOOKING UP Optimism Deck of Cards please visit ThingsAreLookingUp.co For more BTS footage of this episode and any others follow @drdeepikachopra + @allthingsarelookingup Guest Details: @simoneharouche @sweetbabyjamie @kitundergarments Quotes That Have Changed The Way Simone and Jamie Live Their Lives: Jamie: “Stay in your own lane”Simone: "Try to be a rainbow in someone else’s cloud” - Maya Angelou Produced by Dear Media
You may have seen it all over your Instagram feed, shared by allies and activists alike, the bright color gradient, the powerful messages, it was shared over 350,000 times and viewed by at least 2.1 million people. I’m talking about Manassaline Coleman’s post, “Virtual Protesting 101” which went viral.  Liberia- born, DC metro area based, Manassaline Coleman, is a graphic designer and true changemaker; she is this week’s episode guest on Looking Up. We talk about using color and font to inspire joy and inspiration, fighting for what you truly believe in, the challenges and stereotypes Black women face along with hashtags used to inform an unlikely audience that might not necessarily be involved in the Black Lives Matter movement. From activism, to design, to strength, hope, sadness and everything in between, if any of her posts catch your eye, then surely this conversation will catch your ear, too.

Wherever you go, there you are. So many of us have the urge to run, but you can’t truly escape yourself if you don’t grow from who you once were. Dr Deepika Chopra, Optimism Doctor®️ talks with Tinamarie Clark, model and founder of the Shift Stirrer Method all about overcoming shame, poverty and suicidal ideation. Through her own resiliency journey, Tinamarie conditioned herself to learn how to get to a place of acceptance and self empowerment, navigating through a maze of negative routines and cycles. To simplify it, Tinamarie got her shit together and she wants you to, too. We talk about toxic positivity — yes, it’s a thing — the idea of optimism as an antibody, and, of course, self-acceptance. Because what would Looking Up be without some good ol’ fashioned self-love? As always, tools and tips included!  To purchase your own Things Are Looking Up Optimism Deck of Cards please visit ThingsAreLookingUp.co For more BTS footage of this episode and any others follow @drdeepikachopra + @allthingsarelookingup Guest Details: @tinamarieclark Produced by Dear Media
In the United States alone, approximately 133 million Americans struggle with incurable chronic diseases. Considering how painful and oftentimes disabling some of these chronic conditions can be, it’s no surprise that people living with chronic illnesses are two to three times more likely than the general population to suffer from depression. But important research suggests that happiness and chronic illness are actually pretty connected. While some people experience happiness in spite of illness, others actually experience happiness by way of their illness. In this episode, we talk to former Sopranos actress Jamie Lynn Sigler. Though living with MS, this certainly isn’t what defines her. Jamie shares how she finally chose to be more vocal about this disease, cracking herself wide open to give herself the gift of empathy and joy. From Jamie, we learn the importance of asking for help, confronting our innermost vulnerabilities and grief, accepting that some things in life are beyond our control and understanding that being dealt a bad hand can sometimes help us come to realize that life isn’t determined by the cards we’re dealt, but how we play the hand.

Why is it that we recall negative memories so much more clearly than the good ones? Why do some of us prefer vanilla while others live for chocolate? And can modern science answer these questions on its own, or does ancient wisdom still play a role? These are just some of the questions featured in this episode of Looking Up with Dr. Deepika Chopra. Our guest, Dr. Rick Hanson, helps explore these questions, digging deep into the neuroscience of optimism and sharing his personal experience with mindfulness practices. We learn that no matter how bad the past or present is, we can always grow from the point we’re at now and the practical tools it takes to get there.

When we think of grief we don’t tend to think of growth, but in reality it’s a pretty good place to start on our own resiliency journey. Research has shown that those who are in mourning often fare better when they attach personal rituals to their grieving process. In this episode, we explore the ways optimism can be cultivated even in the midst of grief. We discuss with Lulu Brud, actress, designer, activist, and founder of Of The Wolves, hope and happiness she’s cultivated despite the loss and rock bottoms she’s experienced. Dr. Deepika Chopra chats with Lulu about her own loss, and the personal rituals she’s carried out to find the light during dark times. She discusses the importance of emotional duality and the power in not just pretending everything is always okay.  To purchase your own THINGS ARE LOOKING UP Optimism Deck of Cards please visit ThingsAreLookingUp.co For more BTS footage of this episode and any others follow @drdeepikachopra + @allthingsarelookingup on Insta Find Lulu Brud on Instagram: @ladyluofthewolves and @the_outside_inn Produced by Dear Media
