The Savvy Psychologist podcast has long been a resource for helping listeners meet life’s challenges with evidence-based research, a sympathetic ear and zero judgment. Host Dr. Monica Johnson’s weekly podcasts guide us to be healthier, happier versions of ourselves, and now she wants to bump up the mental health game with Savvy Psychologist Meditations.
The first Savvy Psychologist Meditation launched Monday, October 10, World Mental Health Day 2022. In this meditation, Dr. Monica Johnson leads listeners on a loving kindness meditation that allows them to experience compassion, acceptance, and love towards themselves and others.
Across the mental health podcast landscape, we recognized World Mental Health Day 2022 in different ways. Not only was it the day that our new Savvy Psychologist Meditation dropped, but it was also the day the world received a loving kindness wisdom bomb from the accomplished author and self-described meditation evangelist, Dan Harris in the form of his TED Talk. We encourage you to check them both out.
