Brain changer

Total brain changer! Straight up, no BS, empowering advice. I love thinking about my thoughts, emotions, and actions in a different way. This is truly wonderful thought work you can do for yourself.

hit the wrong buttons

I don’t know if it’s me being sensitive or if I just am not cut out for therapy or what it is, but the latest episode on coronavirus put me into a severe anxiety spiral. Telling us that every one of our loved ones could die at any moment, pain is inevitable, death is waiting for us around the corner - I ended up with a panic attack later that night after slowly ratcheting up my anxiety throughout the day after listening. I’m sure it helped someone, but it made my thoughts gravely worse. Especially during this already anxious time with the world falling apart around us, when we can’t even be together, we’re all losing our jobs, and supplies are running short. Maybe an episode on ACTIONS we could take would’ve been more appropriate? :(

What I need to hear

Kara's content and style is exactly what I need to hear. I've listened to 10 bajillion of these types of podcasts but very few have the no-nonsense, straight-to-the-point style that Kara employs. Hers is ACTUAL practical advice that makes sense, without all the fluffy mumbo jumbo of other similar podcasts. I like to listen (and re-listen) to her podcasts on my commute in to work to get me pumped and inspired for the day.
