In this podacst Joe Rogan chats with Johann Hari about his new book Lost Connections, which is basically about the modern day epidemic of anxiety and depression.
Hari’s research basically informs us that mental health problems are primarily caused by LIFE – not by biology. A fascinating stat in this podcast was that 87% of people don’t like their work – the thing they spend most time doing.
To me, the correlation is obvious: we are unhappy with life and THIS causes mental health problems.
Unfortunately, our Western society has (yet again!) got everything arse-about-face! This is a SOCIETAL problem. Not primarily biological and not just an individual issue.
This is one of the best podcasts I’ve ever heard and Rogan and Hari touch on issues wider than just depression and anxiety – it’s about LIFE and how most of the Western world has been doing the wrong things for decades and it’s why we now see epidemics of unhappiness, manifesting as depression, anxiety, suicide, addiction and separation.
The great thing about Hari’s research though, is that there are small cases that point to successful answers, most of which involve connection, love and compassion, rather than what is too often the case – blame, isolation and deadening with drugs.
I haven’t read the book yet but it has great ratings on Amazon. This podcast is a must-watch though.
