Episode : #333: Hygiene for Your Mind

Podcast Description

Dr. Josh Austin is back on the podcast, chatting with Kiera about a continuation of the topic of their last episode: mental health. Dr. Austin shares that since he started therapy, his practice has seen a 16% increase in profitability on average each month. Because he goes to therapy regularly, he feels he’s become a better communicator, more empathetic, more productive, and a better leader.

To put it in dental terms: therapy is like hygiene; you’re never done with it. Thus, therapy is hygiene for your mind.
