Britt Frank | The Science of Stuck: Breaking Through Inertia to Find Your Path Forward

In this episode of the Unmistakable Creative Podcast, we delve into a profound conversation with Britt Frank, a renowned therapist, teacher, and speaker. Britt's unique insights into the nature of trauma and anxiety provide listeners with a fresh perspective on these complex issues. She explains that trauma is not merely the result of horrific events but can stem from any experience that our brain fails to process, leading to emotional and sometimes physical symptoms.


Britt also discusses the concept of 'trauma-inducing events,' which are seemingly ordinary situations that can trigger traumatic responses in those with unresolved issues. This enlightening discussion challenges conventional wisdom and encourages us to reevaluate our understanding of trauma and anxiety.


Furthermore, Britt explores the intriguing concept of hidden rewards in our behaviors. She posits that all behaviors, even those we view as suboptimal, serve a functional purpose and offer hidden rewards. By acknowledging these rewards, we can begin to understand our actions better and make meaningful changes.


Join us as Britt Frank shares her wealth of knowledge, empowering listeners to navigate their emotional landscapes more effectively. Whether you're a therapist, a person struggling with trauma or anxiety, or simply someone interested in personal growth, this episode is a must-listen.

    Join us for our Life of Purpose series this month as we revisit some of our most impactful episodes. Dive deep into expert insights and practical strategies on health, performance, and community, helping you achieve personal and professional fulfillment.If we make a practice in our lives, like going to the gym or eating healthy, if you want to lose weight and be fit, or you want to be chiseled, you’ve got to make a practice. It’s a daily practice. You can’t go to the gym for a week and eat cake for 30 days nonstop and say “hey what happened? I was getting in shape.”Whether you’re feeling bad or feeling good, that doesn’t matter. It’s just your practice, like when you wake up and when you go to sleep. There are certain things you do. It’s a fundamental practice. Just like you talk about with writing. It’s a practice. Then you hit the flow state. Same thing in life. You make it a practice. Life hits a flow state.Things in life happen. People die. Nothing we can do to stop that. People we love die. Things happen. When we hit that flow state we bounce back much faster. The things that used to bring us down don’t bring us down like before. Then it’s only the real tragedies in life that bring us down. When a loved one dies, it’s a real tragedy and that should bring you down. It’s good to have loved someone that way and feel the loss. But the other stuff, the other garbage, the 99 percent of the stuff that brings us down that doesn’t matter lessens and its power over us lessens. So, I would say to someone who is either down or up, what matters is a fundamental daily practice of working on your inner self that keeps you in your personal flow. - Kamal Ravikant
