    Owning It: How to manage anxiety as we come out of lockdown

    Owning It: How to manage anxiety as we come out of lockdown

    This is the last episode of season 3 before season 4 launches in just a few short weeks. The topic? Just as we had to adapt into lockdown and deal with all of the anxiety that brought fore, so too will it take a little bit of time to adapt back to whatever our new normal will be. There might be some social anxiety, our bodies have been conditioned to be hyper vigilant to protect us from the virus so it could feel unnerving to be back in close proximity to others and in general we've all gotten used to living a much smaller life. Here's exactly what to be mindful of as you get back to normal. Plus 12 questions to always ask yourself whenever you feel panicky or anxious.

    Owning It: The power of decision making for anxiety

    Owning It: The power of decision making for anxiety

    For this episode of Owning It I introduce a skill that has massively helped my day to day anxiety, especially as I approach anxiety-inducing life events where my amygdala wants to say 'no!' and run for the hills but my prefrontal cortex knows that maybe, this is something I should do, maybe it would be good for me. It's something I wanted to talk about now as we start to emerge from lockdown and life gets back to normal and we'll be spending less time at home and have more chance of confronting the anxiety of decisions to be made. Indecision breeds fear, making a decision quells it. Thank you for listening and supporting. 


    Please tip the series at patreon.com/carolineforan. For more skills like this one, pick up The Confidence Kit (You Got This is the title of the same book in the USA) or Owning It. You can also pre-order my third book NAKED online now.

    Owning It: The Books That Helped My Anxiety + Ujjayi Breathing Exercise

    In another of my shorter solo episodes that make up season 3, I wanted to talk through some of the books that had the biggest impact on me when it came to my own management and understanding of anxiety, as well as changing my perspective on it and allowing me to get to a place where the idea of owning it was possible. Also within this episode I offer a simple breathing exercise utilising the Ujjayi breathing technique that is my absolute favourite when I need instant calmness in my body. I hope you find it helpful.

    Owning It: Step by step guide to regaining control in an anxious wave

    Owning It: Step by step guide to regaining control in an anxious wave

    In this solo episode, I talk through exactly what I do when I feel anxiety rising, which happened again just last week. I talk you through my practise of taking pen to paper, exactly what kind of questions I ask myself and how I put myself back in the driving seat which helps to ease the anxiety massively. The most important thing? Employing the Assess and Address technique and asking yourself 'what vulnerability factors are at play here?' I hope you find this episode helpful. Please support the series with the price of a cup of coffee over on www.patreon.com/carolineforan or if you can't do that, get your hands on one of my books or simply share the series with someone who you think might find it helpful. Thanks so much

    3 Practical Ways To Manage Working From Home Anxiety During Lockdown

    3 Practical Ways To Manage Working From Home Anxiety During Lockdown

    In this solo episode, the 6th of this season which is more geared towards helping us cope better during Covid-19, I take a look at some recent research that has emerged about how we are getting on working from home. Unfortunately, there is a huge increase in anxiety for several reasons, and that's understandable and okay but there are things we can do to put us back in the driving seat which will positively impact your symptoms of anxiety. Couple these with the mindset approaches we've been working on throughout this series and you will notice an improvement as your are shifting your focus towards what you can control and away from dwelling on that which you can't.

Great content let down by ads

The podcast itself and Caroline are brilliant, but it’s really let down by the ads at the start and end in the middle. They’re so loud and off topic and literally come in mid-sentence and take me completely out of the content and what Caroline is saying. Without these ads it would be ideal!

Thankyou

I highly recommend this podcast to anyone struggling with anxiety especially during coronavirus pandemic. I was really struggling last year with anxiety and came across this podcast and it really helped me understand why I was feeling the way I was and that I wasn’t alone. I have been re listening to all of the episodes during the pandemic and it’s helped me when I’m
Having a moment or when I’m struggling to sleep. Caroline explains anxiety in a way that makes it so easy to understand and covers so many different and helpful topics
