DAY TWO of the First-Ever Give a Shit Challenge: Find Someone Who’s Doing the Work EP: 543

9/28/2021
Here’s a crucial thing to keep in mind when it comes to making a difference on issues big and small, global and local: You don’t need to be the savior rushing in a white horse. In fact, you'd likely only make things worse. Instead, your task today is to find someone who's already working on the thing you care about, so you can add your support to the cause.

DAY ONE of the First Ever Give a Shit Challenge EP: 542

9/27/2021
This week on the podcast I’m doing something a little bit different. Because I’ve gotten such a great response to my free I Give a Shit sticker (it's a nice antidote to the I give zero effs thing that’s been floating around) and because there are just so many things happening in the world that, if you are a person who gives a shit, can really weigh on you, this week we're going to relieve some of that angst by doing something about the stuff that’s weighing heavy on our hearts. Think of the...

9/24/2021
Your emotions aren’t here to torture you; they’re messengers, giving you information about what you value, need, and want. Here's one question to ask yourself to figure out what information your anger is trying to convey. (Then it won’t have to try so hard to get your attention.)

What’s Your Anger Story? EP: 540

9/23/2021
Each of us has a set of beliefs about anger that we’ve been carrying around since we were little. By taking a little time to think about what those beliefs are, you can get a little more objectivity and perspective on this emotion that so often prevents you from thinking clearly.

Breaking the Cycle of Anger, an Interview with Andrea J. Lee EP: 539

9/22/2021
I wanted to reach out to someone who could help us think about anger in new ways and potentially interrupt any of our habitual patterns around it so that we’ve got some space to learn some new skills for dealing with it. The person I’m talking to today is Andrea J. Lee. Andrea is the author of the blog "We Can Stop Being Abusive" on Substack, the controversial article "I Verbally Abused my Husband: Here's How I Stopped," published in the Washington Post and the book We Need to Talk for small...

Reasons Why You Might Feel Angry All the Time EP: 538

9/21/2021
There’s nothing wrong with anger management strategies, which are fine but, to use a healthcare analogy, learning how to manage anger is trying to mitigate symptoms, instead of treating the root cause. Let’s look at some of the many, many things that can give rise to anger so that you can see what root causes that you might be able to address.

Is Anger Good, or Bad? Both EP: 537

9/20/2021
This week's episodes were inspired by a listener question about feeling angry all the time lately, and what to do about it. And since anger is definitely having a moment (all that cooped-up angst has to have somewhere to go), let's figure out what all this collective anger might be here to show us. First question: is anger a bad a thing? Or a good thing?

Using Fun to Motivate You--It Is Possible EP: 535

9/16/2021
Let’s face it: Adulting can be a real slog. The list of things to do and take care of can feel relentless. However, that does not mean that doing the things you need to do has to be boring, or tedious. You CAN use fun to goad yourself into doing those things you have to do, and enjoy yourself while you’re doing it

Feeling Fried? Might Be Time for the Healing Power of Pleasure EP: 534

9/15/2021
Today I’m interviewing Dr. Rachel Allyn, a relationship and sex therapist and the author of the new book, The Pleasure Is All Yours: Reclaim Your Body’s Bliss and Reignite Your Passion for Life. After all fun and pleasure go hand in hand, and if you’re listening from the United States, we live in a pretty repressed society where pleasure is either frowned upon or just ignored. Let's turn that beat around.

So, What ARE You Doing for Fun? EP: 533

9/14/2021
In order to invite more fun into your life, it helps to give some thought to what you consider to be fun, and what you’ve been doing for fun lately, and objectively assess whether you might need to prioritize fun a little more. I think of it as doing a fun inventory. That may sound like a clinical approach to playfulness, but what you inspect, you respect.

Let’s Have Some Fun EP: 532

9/13/2021
I get that fun can feel frivolous, and that it’s easy to think that we should wait until things calm down before we even consider doing something just for the fun of it. But fun is not just enjoyable, but also it’s vital to our wellbeing and even to our very purpose for being on this planet in this body at this juncture in time. Woah.

How to Figure Out What the Heck to Have for Dinner EP: 529

9/8/2021
Let’s be honest, figuring out what to eat can also be overwhelming. So today, I’m interviewing Kate Schulz, co-host of the Dinner Sisters podcast, for her tips on how to figure out what the heck to have for dinner. Kate is a home cook through and through with no professional chef experience or training, so she can definitely relate to that feeling of having no idea of what to make for dinner and of being turned off by complicated recipes. I’m excited to get her insights on how to make...

What Fall Is REALLY About EP: 526

9/3/2021
Ok, yes, fall is busy, but it's about more than just being a busy little squirrel and hiding away your acorns for the winter to come (although it is about that too). Let's look at the deeper meaning--and opportunities--of fall so we can be intentional about this sometimes tempestuous season.

How a Supportive Schedule Is Like a Song EP: 525

9/2/2021
Instead of creating a rigid new schedule for fall, think about how making your schedule more like a song--with a consistent rhythm that can adapt to different circumstances, like verses (weekdays), choruses (weekends), and even shredding guitar solos (those days that kick your butt).

Today I’m talking with my go-to nutrition expert, Mary Sheila Gonnella, of Occidental Nutrition--a recurring guest on this podcast, a friend of mine, and a very talented and passionate nutritionist who blends traditional approaches,-like taking care of your blood sugar and insulin levels, with ancient practices such as Ayurveda.
