How do you find meaning and stillness in your daily life? That could sound like a loaded question, but if you take a step back and think about it, meaning and stillness are things we get to relish in every single day… if we’re mindful about it!

Eli Weinstein, a Licensed Clinical Social Work Therapist, is passionate about sharing tips and tools for no BS mental health, wellness, and everyday life. He’s here to do just that.

In this discussion, Chase and Eli talk about navigating parenthood, partnership, and your relationship with yourself. He shares his simple, yet powerful techniques for minimizing anxiety, stress, overwhelm, and the societal noise we’re constantly exposed to. Then, he sheds light on three major mental health issues the world is facing right now and why we should be aware of them.

Key Highlights

  • Eli explains how to begin the process of “dating yourself”, getting to know yourself, and developing a healthy relationship with the Self. Remember, start small.
  • Choosing to not do things can be just as powerful as choosing to do things. He details the impact of stillness on everything from productivity to self-awareness and relaxation, touching on how he finds stillness with ADHD. 
  • The intensity of social media can cause our brain to go into survival mode, creating an internal stress system pumping adrenaline into your body. Turn off your push notifications, avoid mindless scrolling, and avoid picking up your phone the second you wake up.
  • At the root, taking care of yourself and enhancing the quality of your life is about learning how to just BE with yourself, your thoughts, and your feelings, learning to enjoy your life where you’re at (not through a screen).
  • When we isolate ourselves, we get stuck in our thoughts and we feel alone. The pandemic caused a lot of isolation, whether we wanted it or not, and that’s a slippery slope to mental illness.
  • Embrace your whole self, your inner and outer worlds, and get help when you need it. It might just change your entire life.
