527: How To Handle Dread | Saleem Reshamwala

Today we explore the entire dread spectrum with Saleem Reshamwala, who took a deep dive on this very common, very uncomfortable emotion. What is dread, exactly? What evolutionary purpose does it serve? Most importantly, how do we deal with it? What are the antidotes?

Reshamwala has worked for The New York Times, PBS, and also TED, where he hosts a podcast called Far Flung . He is also the host of More Than A Feeling , another podcast here at Ten Percent Happier. Saleem and his team recently launched something called The Dread Project - we shared their first episode kicking off the series last week. It’s a five-day series that investigates dread. Each day of the challenge, listeners tackle dread in a different way. You can sign up for The Dread Project at dreadproject.com.

In this episode we talk about:

  • Dread-management techniques, including: journaling, drawing, and welcoming your dread to the party inside your head
  • How to face dread when it comes to climate change 
  • And the biggest dread of all— death
