This week my pick is Hidden Brain with an episode called "Getting Unstuck." The first time I heard this episode I was feeling a little lost in my own life. I was in a bit of a funk. What makes this episode so unique is that it offers a concrete strategy for how to relieve that feeling of being "stuck," whether it's your career, relationship or just a general sense of malaise that's making you unhappy. The method of "Design Thinking," which is laid out in the episode, is sure to get you back on track. Listen with a pen and paper in hand and you'll be on the other side of restlessness in no time.
