Are you searching for a spiritual awakening? Then join us for another Summer Edition of Mayim Bialik’s Breakdown! Mayim and Jonathan reflect on spiritual awakenings explored in the Michael Singer and Byron Katie episodes. They discuss practical parenting applications for Byron Katie’s techniques, including ways to avoid putting your expectations on your kids, the importance of allowing time and space for kids’ to adjust to new situations, and the benefits of prioritizing an emotional connection between parent and child. They explain the limits of trying to intellectualize oneself out of suffering, the differences between reacting and responding, and how spiritual fitness can allow us to overcome "hormonal hijacking." Mayim and Jonathan open up about their own daily spiritual awakenings, why pausing is undervalued, and the dangers of living for the next adrenaline rush caused by conflict.
The best of Mayim and Jonathan, from their infamous trash talks and interpretations of what the other is saying, to their unique insights about mental health topics like the science behind gratitude, the relationship between anxiety and technology, and tips for broaching mental health topics within your family. Mayim breaks down some of our most intriguing topics covered here at MBB, such as body dysmorphia, narcissistic personality disorder, somatic reactions, the balance between science and religion, and the neuroscience behind coping mechanisms.
