    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.

    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.

    Owning It: What is Comfortable Neutrality and why is it important for anxiety?

    Owning It: What is Comfortable Neutrality and why is it important for anxiety?

    Another solo episode as part of season 3. This time I am introducing you to the concept of Comfortable Neutrality which is essential for increasing confidence and an incredibly helpful tool for down-regulating our anxiety response. It is an idea put forward in my second book The Confidence Kit (which is out now in the US/Canada but called 'You Got This') and once you wrap your head around it you can start to practise it daily. This episode also includes a meditative body scan. If you'd like to support the series please tip the podcast at www.patreon.com/carolineforan or purchase either Owning It (Own It in the US) or The Confidence Kit (You Got This in the US) or pre-order NAKED which is all about the power of vulnerability and is due for release next January.

    OWNING IT: How to approach financial anxiety

    OWNING IT: How to approach financial anxiety

    For this episode I am joined by financial expert and author of How to be Good with Money, Eoin McGee. Right now financial anxiety might be an issue for a lot more of us than would normally be the case, thanks to the impact of the pandemic. It's certainly something I am feeling and as such it's something I wanted advice on. Knowing how to manage financial anxiety, with practical steps, will not only be helpful now but always stand to us should we ever find ourselves struggling against this very tangible vulnerability factor.

    Owning It: What is a 'stretch zone experience' and why is it important?

    Owning It: What is a 'stretch zone experience' and why is it important?

    Hi guys, in this second episode of season 3 I am drilling down into some of the content explored in my second book, The Confidence Kit. I am looking at the comfort zone model and the importance of what's called a stretch zone experience when it comes to owning our anxiety and building our confidence. I talk through the ideal scenario so that we are not feeling excessive anxiety at any point but are not so stuck in our comfort zones that we are not growing our challenging our anxiety so as to ensure it doesn't own us.

Dr Keane.

This podcast was excellent in shining a light on the importance of knowledge!!! We can’t fix something we don’t understand. Mindfulness and other practices like this can’t be effective unless we understand the brain. Thank you so much for this 😊👏🏻
