Choose Love: Making Decisions from the Heart EP: 553

10/12/2021
One of the reasons why decisions can be so taxing is that we’re over-relying on our brains to make them. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for making pro and con lists and doing research and mulling things over, but your brain isn’t the only game in town. There’s also your heart, which is all about love. It sees possibility and seeks expansion and understands things like truth and beauty--all things that the rational mind is kind of unimpressed with. I’ve got an exercise that will help you take an...

Especially now in the Covid era, when there are so many added decisions we’ve needed to make that often feel like impossible choices.For some decisions, you need a way to cut through the noise, give your rational, thinking mind a break, and check in with your gut, aka your...

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.

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.)

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.
