2 Practical Ways to Enjoy Time By Yourself & Overcome Feelings of Loneliness
Today, I’m sharing a deep and meaningful conversation with Mason Spector and Peiman Raf of the Madhappy Podcast - a show that aims to create more conversation around mental health by illuminating the full spectrum of mental health, the highs and the lows.
I get to share my journey as a monk, the valuable lessons on how to purify our ego, master our mind, manage our emotions, and live in service of others. We also talk about the difference between being alone and feeling lonely, and why it is important to always find time to be by yourself to reconnect with your thoughts. And finally, we dive into how our actions positively and negatively impacts the people around us and how we should deviate from external validation and instead focus on self validation to help tame our ego.
