Friday Newsletter Snapshot – This is How it Looks Like(with examples and resources)

The Nishant Garg Show

This post highlights a few samples of new newsletter emails I send out every Friday to all the subscribers. You can find the newsletter link here. The email contains details about what I am learning new, recent podcast updates, things I am experimenting with, books I am reading, or anything. It could include details on Mindfulness practices, Happiness, Psychology Mental Health, and much more!

This podcast has been listened to in 32 countries per Spotify in 2021. I’ve interviewed “185+” world-class experts in the last 23 months(as of writing this post) and you will have the access to their tried and tested knowledge that stands the test of time.

Life can be hard at times. It can be hard to cultivate peace and calm when there is a lot going on with work, family, kids, and the world. Healing is possible. My mission is to help people get in touch with their emotions and feelings and be a source of healing.

Below you’ll find 6 different examples of emails I’ve sent out this year. As I am evolving as a human being, my learnings tend to differ from week to week.

Let’s begin and please enjoy. If you like this list, please share the newsletter link with your friends or whoever you think might benefit from it. Thanks in advance.

Blog I am reading: Esther Perel: Want to Build Trust In Your Relationship?

Ted Talk I am watching Rethinking infidelity … a talk for anyone who has ever loved | Esther PerelInfidelity is the ultimate betrayal. But does it have to be? Relationship therapist Esther Perel examines why people cheat and unpacks why affairs are so traumatic: because they threaten our emotional security. In infidelity, she sees something unexpected — an expression of longing and loss. A must-watch for anyone who has ever cheated or been cheated on, or who simply wants a new framework for understanding relationships.

Podcast I am listening to:

Blogs I am reading:

  • Letters from Esther #7: The Art of ConversationThe art of conversation is about healthy amounts of both: thoughtful speaking and hardcore listening, asking questions, and navigating commonalities and differences.
  • Why You’re Still Clinging to Your “Shadow” Career“Sometimes, when we’re terrified of embracing our true calling, we’ll pursue a shadow calling instead. The shadow career is a metaphor for our real career. Its shape is similar, its contours feel tantalizingly the same. But a shadow career entails no real risk. If we fail at a shadow career, the consequences are meaningless to us.”

Resources on healing and trauma I’m loving:

Gabor Maté is an internationally renowned speaker highly sought after for his expertise on addiction, trauma, childhood development, and the relationship between stress and illness.

Resources on cultivating relationships:

  • Risk-Taking and Trust – Letters from Esther PerelRisk-taking allows us to build trust. Whether you find yourself desperate to be around people, wanting to keep the solitude you found this year, or somewhere in between, this new liminal phase is an opportunity. We find ourselves entering a period of risk assessment that will help teach us how to build back trust in the world and with each other.
  • Balancing Love & Desire | Esther PerelThe number one question married couples ask Esther Perel is, “How do we keep the spark alive? In this inspiring Mindvalley A-Fest presentation, Esther Perel, bestselling author, and relationship expert informs us that couples who keep romanticism alive, keep the desire burning in the bedroom in your relationship or marriage.
