The Single Most Important Factor Driving Psychological Well-Being

Jan 08, 2020

If you had to guess what the single, most important factor is in determining your psychological well-being, what would you guess? 

Turns out, it’s social connection and personal relationships. 

Our connections to other people and our social interactions with them are an incredibly protective and powerful factor in developing psychological strength, and this week, and that’s why we’re covering it on this week’s episode. 

This week, we’re talking with Peter Montoya, the CEO of ThriveUnionThriveUnion is an organization that is committed to helping people go from meaningless isolation to purposeful belonging. Through their in-person, weekly meet-ups to their Life School, they’re arming people with the information they need to truly thrive in their lives. 

Can you see why I’m so excited?! 

We get into such valuable, actionable information in this episode. Including:  

  • The difference between high intensity & low intensity relationships and the degree to which we need each of them. This will blow your mind.
  • What are symbolic substitutes, and how are they influencing our ability to form real social connection? 
  • What boundaries truly are and more importantly, how to enforce them in a way that strengthens your relationships. 
  • The toxicity of being passive-aggressive and what to do instead. 

 I know you’re going to get so much value out of this impactful conversation with Peter Montoya!
