~(˘▾˘~) Nº133 Evoke the Stoke! 🏄 🤙
By Jon Woodroof • Issue #133 • View online
For starters: Most Psychology Research Is BS. Jason Hreha, Head of Product, Behavioral Sciences @ Walmart has a great post to help you figure out which psychology headlines you can ignore and which you should integrate into your life. Plus, he shares some guiding principles: 
  1. ✨ If It Sounds Like Magic, It Probably Is
  2.  📴 Small Changes Generally Do Not Lead to Large Results
  3. 🕒 Change Takes Time
  4. 🍴Take Care of the Basics
Bearing that in mind, maybe it is no surprise to read that:
For many years, psychologists, following Freud, thought that people simply needed to express their anger and anxiety—blow off some steam— to be happier. But this is wrong.
Author of Power of Meaning: Crafting a Life That Matters,  Emily Esfahani Smith says that having a positive outlook is the most important predictor of resilience
To me: resilience is the art of staying stoked. 🤙
People who stay stoked are more likely to be positive and optimistic, regulate their emotions more evenly and even maintain that optimism through the most trying circumstances.
I know this is easier for some people but do try to evoke your stoke week! 
As always thank you for reading,
Jon
Sharing is caring: Plz tweet, share on LinkedIn or post on FB. 🙏
p.s. even if you’re resilient, stoked, optimistic and all that but things still don’t go your way? You might as well make a stink. Anything less, and you’re destined to be forgettable. But I’d (still) rather be forgotten than remembered for giving in! 😉🤘
