Why Do People Believe What They Believe
Dr. Tyler Woods talks today about why people believe the way they do. She talks about one of the most agreed-upon ideas in the field of psychology is that people routinely use mental shortcuts to understand what happens around them. She talks about how we tend to use quick and largely unconscious rules-of-thumb to determine what we believe—and these shortcuts sometimes can steer us in the wrong direction. Woods talks about how we would like to think that our feelings are driven by logic and reason, unfortunately, often, they are not. Sometimes we end up using our reasoning ability to justify or defend a story based on our emotions. This is called emotional reasoning and we get attached to untruths.

Be A Buddhist Dealing With the Coronavirus

She believes the best advice anyone can offer is to BE A BUDDHIST and be mindful. Take a pause, inhale and take a few deep breaths, then take a few more, then take your time and look around at all the things you can be grateful for. That is actually being a Buddhist. She believes walking a Buddhist perspective is a great way to deal with the pandemic and you do not have to be Buddhist to do so you can be Christians, Jewish, atheist and still walk a Buddhist philosophy. Join her for this 10 minute podcast as she takes the time to remind you to relax and just know everything is temporary.
