The Complicated Math of Change, and an Announcement! (No, We're Not Ending!)

People often say they're "bad with change," or, seemingly less often, that they're good with it. But change isn't a monolith. Different changes can involve vastly different things: are you good at adding things in, but not letting go of things? Are you okay with making room for the idea of new things but not actually doing it? Is commitment itself what's hardest for you?

Today we get real about the concept of change-- and we mean real, because Baggage Check's episode release schedule is about to change, for a very personal (and exciting) reason. If you're ready to debate what the definition of biweekly is, in addition to reflecting on what change is like in your own life, you'll want to listen to today's Baggage Check.

Here's more on Dr. Andrea Bonior and her book Detox Your Thoughts.

About the Podcast

Baggage Check: Mental Health Talk and Advice
with Dr. Andrea Bonior
We've all got baggage. But what do we choose to do with it?
Every other Friday, licensed clinical psychologist, best-selling author and popular psychology professor Dr. Andrea Bonior takes your mental health questions, and makes you part of the conversation. Join her and other voices as they translate research into real life, and talk about relationships, emotions, health, psychological disorders, stress, finding meaning, work, and occasionally-- just occasionally-- the most obscure dance crazes of 1997.
All are welcome, and nothing is off limits. With science, compassion, and humor, she's here to help.
