97: Ben Aldridge – How to be Comfortable With Being Uncomfortable

Author Ben Aldridge joins me to talk about improving mindset, how to overcome anxiety, and the value of taking on challenges.

Ben Aldridge writes about practical philosophy, comfort zones, mental health, and adventure. His first book How to Be Comfortable with Being Uncomfortable: 43 Weird & Wonderful Ways to Build a Strong Resilient Mindset is an exploration of unique ways to leave our comfort zones, face our fears and overcome our anxieties. Heavily influenced by Stoicism, Buddhism, popular psychology and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Ben’s challenges encourage us to get uncomfortable and experience the personal growth that we can only gain from pushing ourselves to the limit.  See show notes for links to his websites, Facebook page, and contact information.
