We’re currently living in a toxic society: culturally, physically, emotionally and mentally. Between the sick care model, the war on masculinity, addiction and unhealthy habits, something has to be done. What is the unholy alliance that has culturally created this mess? How is biology uniting with culture and totally destroying our young men? Why is it so important for us to do regular mental work? On this episode, I am honored and humbled to be joined by Dr. Michael Miletic as we go in-depth with these issues and topics.
This is a lifelong pursuit of making ourselves better and making our attachments to the rest of the world better. -Dr. Michael Miletic
- The sick care model has created a population that is passive in their health. They don't become proactive in taking care of their health and only take action when they are in crisis.
- Young men have no way to emote. No one understands them, and they turn to social media and video games for validation.
- People don’t sleep because they take the stress of the day to bed with them.
At the start of the show, Dr. Miletic shared his story and how his interest in medicine was inspired by his mother’s illness. He also shared on how he got injured just before going to the Olympics and how he pulled himself out of depression when it happened. We talked about how society’s view of mental health and doing inner work is so flawed. Dr. Miletic shared on what he calls “algorithmic sick care” and all the issues it has caused for us culturally. We also talked about how biology is uniting with culture right now.
We also discussed:
- Why the incidence of depression in injured athletes and retired athletes is very high
- The issues with video game and social media addiction, and what parents can do
- The power of systematizing your mental work
For the passive person who doesn’t take responsibility for their emotional, mental and physical health, it’s easy to blame genetics or someone else for everything that isn’t right. Self-aware people understand that they can empower themselves by doing the necessary mental work. It starts with being sensitized to your own feelings, being aware of what you’re feeling, using your emotions as signals that determine decision making and being able to read other people. The same goes for our physical health, as a lot of diseases and illnesses might be genetically predisposed, but they are lit up by the environment— and that is something we can control. When we work on both our minds and our bodies, we stand a chance to combat all the ills in our society.
