How societal norms are holding us back and making us anxious

Season #1

In this episode of Integrative You Radio, your hosts Dr. Nicole and Dr. Nick delve into the impact of societal norms on personal growth, focusing on the critical importance of embracing discomfort for both adults and children. They recount a conversation with a parent at the beach who challenged conventional norms by intentionally seeking discomfort, realizing its potential to combat anxiety in today’s youth.

The hosts emphasize the societal tendency to shy away from discomfort, illustrating how avoiding pain inhibits growth. They discuss the need to surround oneself with supportive, growth-oriented individuals and break free from the fear of judgment. By adopting practices like meditation, listeners can learn to differentiate between genuine physical symptoms and the body's release of emotional baggage, empowering them to navigate life's challenges with resilience and self-assurance.
