Redefining Social Anxiety: Becoming Humans 2.0

Mark Metry
Forbes and TEDx Featured Speaker

How do I rewire my brain? How do I really become the person who I want to be?

Episode Summary

In this episode, Mark Metry — Speaker, Author, Podcaster, and Social Anxiety Coach — joins Connor to talk about his personal experience with social anxiety and his journey to “rewire his brain.” Learn how a small moment of profound realization — followed by a lot of exploration and experimentation — put Mark on the path to mental health and a better understanding of the human condition.

Key Takeaways

  • Social anxiety is a significant mental health issue. One Harvard study found that social anxiety — more than any other mental illness — correlated with social isolation, substance abuse, and suicide.
  • Human experience is multidimensional. There are physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of human being, and they interact with one another. This is evident in research results that show a link between junk food and psychological distress or meditation as a useful tool for managing anxiety. And it’s why a holistic approach works best for reprogramming your brain.
  • Rewiring your brain is about rooting out and resetting your default perspective. You can decide to do — and view — things differently.
