Description

When you're hungry, it can be hard to think of anything other than food. When you're desperately poor, you may constantly worry about making ends meet. When you're lonely, you might obsess about making friends. This week, as part of our You 2.0 series, we bring you a favorite 2017 episode about the psychological phenomenon of scarcity. Researchers say this form of tunnel vision can affect our ability to see the big picture and cope with problems in our lives.

I behave exactly like Katy and I have harmed my body twice this year since I've been so consumed and focused on approaching a goal of mine that it led me to avoid anything unrelated but the goal. I knew it would have consequences although I didn't realize its extent. So, that was a cautionary tale for me that I've experienced and it costed me a lot. I enjoy all your episodes. splendid work and thanks
