    197: Know and Grow Self Love

    The other day I heard from someone who was having a bad day. She asked if this meant she had lost her self-love and how she could know she had enough self-love. That conversation made me realize how little we know about self-love, and it inspired me to do this show.

    196: Spotting Covert Narcissism

    We all know the word “narcissism.” We can usually spot a narcissist a mile away. They are loud, want all the attention and can be obnoxious. This is known as overt narcissism.

    But can you spot a covert narcissist? They can be tricky, with a more "subtle" form of narcissism. It can sting just as badly, but you have no idea it's happening (at least not initially) because it's so subtle.

    195: From Anxiety & Panic to Peace

    What do you do when anxiety creeps up out of nowhere and sends you into a state of panic? Maybe it’s a stressful call or email, an overflowing to-do list or all of your worries being flung in your face at once, until it feels like fear is taking over your body. 

    You know the feeling: irrational thoughts, a racing heart, a mind that’s racing even faster and even symptoms like a headache or upset stomach.

    194: Purge, Connect & Reach: 3 Simple Steps to Change Your Mood

    194: Purge, Connect & Reach: 3 Simple Steps to Change Your Mood

    There is nothing worse than when we find ourselves caught in a bad mood. Whether we wake up on the wrong side of the bed or something triggers us and sends us into a funk, we all experience moments or even days where we feel a bit "down."

    Often, it can be difficult to identify where our mood has come from or why we feel this way. We might just know we feel bad, sad, lonely, anxious, depressed or emotionally "off." It can be hard to get back on track when we don't even know what's causing it!

Changing my life one podcast at a time

It’s difficult to know what to search for when you wake up one day and realise you don’t know who you are or how you got here. I searched desperately for 3 months before I stumbled across The Adult Chair by sheer coincidence (or divine timing) and my life has been forever altered.

This is such a great tool to learn how to repair the relationship between yourself and your inner child.

I am forever changed and eternally grateful. Thank you so much for sharing this gift with the world
