    Silencing Your Inner Critic

    Silencing Your Inner Critic

    For today's episode, Bonnie and Danielle talked about Silencing Your Inner Critic.

    There are times that stress are all over the wrong places all the time and that controls our fight or flight response. It is where our brain will usually go to when we have anxiety and get overwhelmed and these negative thought processes continue. Putting it down on a piece of paper and being able to physically look at it actually helps. It changes how the thought process back to that frontal lobe and causes us to look at it a lot more rationally with the logical part of our brain. Because only then we can really dissect it.

    Writing it down helps us to see that it's not as big and scary as our brains led us to believe. It's not something we need to run away from, we can tackle this, we can deal with this. It's just our brain made it feel bigger than it was.

    Listen to today's full episode and see how Bonnie and Danielle can help you Silence Your Inner Critic.

    Overcoming Setbacks

    Overcoming Setbacks

    Today's episode is really a good conversation.

    We discussed how we can overcome our setbacks.

    If we're talking about the setback itself, there's a lot of times that there are things that are outside of our control. Whether it be a health issue, or the economy or a job loss. And so a lot of times we just have to go, "Okay. This is this is my reality right now. This is the circumstance. Now, what do I do about it?"

    You can have a few people that you can feel comfortable sharing with that aren't gonna judge you for it. That's the hardest thing. That's probably why we don't usually vent and internalized so much is because we've been told by so many different people that the way we feel is wrong. And you have no right to complain or if it is a concern to you, you have a right to have that concern. Other people aren't going to think that your problem is as big as their problems. But if it is a big problem to you, then it is a big problem you can vent out.

    Also, you can just have a notebook that you're just writing out all of your thoughts. Because we've internalized stuff for so long that we kind of need something that's going to draw that out for us. But the important thing is to write out everything you're thinking without any negative judgment towards yourself.

    To know the steps in detail, we suggest you listen to the whole podcast episode. You'll definitely get helpful ways on how to overcome your setbacks in all aspects of your life.

AHotmar ,

Insightful!

I’ve followed Danielle at The Rustic Elk for quite a while and was thrilled when I saw she partnered with someone to create a podcast! Any information on living more frugal and homestead is great information for me! Every little bit counts! Both women are very knowledgeable! I also love hearing perspectives of homesteading in Florida! So much that I would’ve never known living in Wisconsin! Thanks ladies!
