This episode features some stories and some reflection on the topic of Poker as it pertains to emotional health. Over the past 7 months, I have had the opportunity to play over 50 poker sessions – mostly home games, with a few casino trips interspersed. In this episode I share what I have learned about the relationship between playing poker and developing emotional health skills.
Some people have told me that they are surprised that I would play poker, for they saw it is incompatible or even contradictory to the Weather of the Mind pod.
In this episode I hope to set the record straight – – poker can be a great teacher of focus, decision-making, emotional regulation, social skills, risk/rewards strategy.
Best to you – –
PS If this show resonates, please share with your people, that is a real help. Thanks. (plenty of ways to link to social media on the audio player on the weather of the mind page.) (Episode 101 is a great introductory episode to share)
PPS Seriously though, we have no new school social media for this podcast. So word of mouth is extremely helpful. Old school.
