Here are my favorite gems from this week’s episode:

  • Where psychology, neuroscience, and contemplative wisdom meet and how to apply these principles to our life
  • Why it’s so important to know where you would like to grow in your life (my goal: grow compassion!)
  • Why we need to experience what we want to know in ourself, and how really to take those feelings in (and how to experience those things in the first place!)
  •  Why our brains are like teflon for negative experiences, and what we can do about it
  • Rick’s three suggestions for staying in tune with a positive outlook

  1. Girl, I discovered you by accident the other day while I was doing some meal prep and craving some brain food to accompany rather than the usual mindless.

    As a person with and proud of my anxiety disorder, and my battles with addiction, your sober series resonated beyond words.

    This morning I listened to your episode with Rick Hanson, and again, I felt like you where sitting down and talking TO me.

    Just wanted to say, keep kicking ass.

    Yours in anxiety

    1. I just saw your comment! I don’t know if you will actually receive my reply, but I hope you know how much it meant to me! I am so grateful that you found the show and that it resonated. xo!
