How to Start Over

The Atlantic

In this series, Atlantic staff writer Olga Khazan analyzes what it takes to change our relationships, our work, and our perspective—with a practical approach to one of life’s greatest mysteries: how to start over. Change can be really hard. Inertia is powerful, mortgages and marriages are long-term, and personality traits can feel pretty hardwired. But we’re in an era characterized by change. This series is your guide to starting over in the ways you’ve always wanted, why change is so hard, and whether it is, sometimes, overrated. This series was produced by Rebecca Rashid and hosted by Olga Khazan. Editing by A.C. Valdez and Claudine Ebeid. Fact-check by Ena Alvarado. Sound design by Matthew Simonson.

  • Self awareness

    I recently started listening to podcasts as a form of self care. “How to build a happy life”, is my far one of my top 2 podcasts to listen to when I’m jogging, driving, or relaxing at home. It challenges me to dig deeper and learn more about myself.

  • Woo for rich people.

    Started by listening to episode five. Wasn't quite feeling it, lots of neo-Buddhist woo-woo nonspecifics, but was willing to ride along until the exercise at the end, where it went very wrong. more
