DAHLIA is like Mister Rogers' Neighborhood - but for adults. This fun and meaningful podcast looks for the helpers and ways to help you through your day. It may be conversations with everyday people doing extraordinary things, Oscar winners who have overcome the odds, or the man who jumped off The Golden Gate Bridge to take his life, yet miraculously lived to save so many lives. It may be giving a voice to those in need. But it’s always bringing people together. You won't get inundated with information here. You already get too much of that. You need wonder and reflection. So expect lots of that. Dahlia has been a talk show host for a decade with a mission to spread kindness. And her Network of Angels always leaves a trail. So come on over and let's make good things happen ... Why live and let live when you can live and HELP live?

Why are we hoarding kindness? Especially when kindness brings you luck. Yes, there’s a science to kindness - and very small acts of it can bring you luck. And today, I will prove this to you.

PART 1 WITH DR. GABOR MATÉ

You see, luck doesn’t come from manifestation, it comes from appreciation and gratitude … to others.

While this may seem like a rudimentary lesson, think about how much you don’t think about giving away your kindness.

You know that sweet-as-pie cashier at the grocery store who always greets you with a smile - did you give them a commendation? You know that customer service worker who went out of their way to give you a better experience - did you give them a commendation? Well, that’s a process, and you don’t have time. Okay …

Well, what about that video you watched online that made you laugh or made you think or made you feel something at a time when it’s been hard to feel - did you give that person a commendation with a like? A like that takes less than a nanosecond to give.

PART 2 WITH DR. GABOR MATÉ

So here’s the plan for this episode: I will share a real-life, real-time, successful experiment I did on kindness. A decade-long experiment. But I won’t just tell you about this, you will get to re-live a piece of it (calm down - not all 10 years) and experience it with me.

IN EPISODE 30 YOU WILL LEARN:

• Why you have the power to create your own luck.
• How a $3 act-of-kindness turned into too many dollars to count.
• The science behind why giving (even a smile) gets you much more in return.
• You are not alone.

Oh, and next week, you’ll meet someone who is disrupting the world of mental health more than most anyone on the planet.

So, please make sure to follow the podcast on Apple or Spotify - or wherever you listen to this. Because you won’t want to miss Dr. Jessica Taylor, especially if you’ve been diagnosed with any mental health “disorder.”
