EARLIER TODAY: Advice Goddess Radio, Today, 1-2pm PT, 4-5pm ET: Dr. Richard Wiseman--How Action, Not Brooding, Changes Your Feelings & Your Life
Amy Alkon's Advice Goddess Radio: "Nerd Your Way To A Better Life!" with the best brains in therapy and research.
Psychologist and researcher Dr. Richard Wiseman will be with us all the way from Britain for a not-to-be-missed show on his book, just published in America, "The As If Principle."
He will lay out the science that shows that it is not thinking yourself into new behavior that helps you change but behaving as the person you want to be. In other words, "Behave as if..."
This will not only be a fascinating show, but an extremely valuable and practical one, laying out a simple principle, well-supported by research, that can easily be used to increase motivation, overcome depression, lose weight, stop smoking and even slow aging.
The research shows, for example, that you can measurably improve your mood by smiling and laughing, and that you can improve your relationship simply by acting loving. You can even cure phobias by practicing behaving, physically, as if you are not afraid -- not grimacing at a spider, for example.

Don't miss last week's show with sex therapist Dr. Brandy Engler. Dr. Engler is unique in that she opened a sex therapy practice for women -- expecting to slowly get get clients -- and quickly amassed a full list of clients: all men.
This is your chance to go inside her sessions -- to see into the erotic minds of men. And not pervos or deviants, but regular guys. Men we all know.
Beyond the men, she takes us inside the minds of the women having sex with these men -- or refusing to -- and find out why, and what it takes to balance love and eroticism in a relationship.
Engler and New York Times best-selling biographer David Rensin have just published a fascinating book about her sessions and her insights, The Men on My Couch: True Stories of Sex, Love and Psychotherapy
