Months and months in a sweet little bubble, with stresses and chaos on the outside, but warmth and safety on the inside . . . doesn't that sound great? But if this idyllic situation isn't yours right now, don't worry! Neuroscience and emotional resilience specialists Dr. Rick Hanson, psychologist and New York Times best-selling author, and Forrest Hanson, host of the "Being Well" podcast, will teach us some techniques to head off the isolation craziness. They've agreed to stay for a longer Q&A than usual, so if your relationship is turning into "for better or for worse, but not for lunch," or even if you're simply finding it difficult to keep your temper or your balance, be sure to join us.
Just write your questions on the video's chat box during the talk, and we will forward them to Rick and Forrest anonymously for their answers. Our previous discussions about anxiety and depression used a similar format, and they were extremely successful. There were great questions that received excellent practical answers, so be sure to attend and ask those questions! Remember, thousands of people will download the podcast afterwards; the answer you get may lighten the day for hundreds of subsequent listeners.
