PST 6: Compare & Declare
Social media gives us so many opportunities to compare the regular parts of our lives with the carefully curated and filtered versions of other people’s lives. Study after study shows depression rates going up in proportion to time spent comparing ourselves to others.
So in this week’s episode, we’ll learn what to do instead. We’ll go from compare and despair to compare & declaring our way to happiness.
A lot of people feel crappy this time of year because they are comparing their actual real lives to a carefully curated version of other’s lives. No one’s real life can compare and marketers use that fact to sell us products. In this week’s episode, we stop spending the holidays in despair and declare our way to enjoying them instead.
