    Ep #57 COVID-19: Managing All The Feels

    I know. It can feel like we are on an emotional rollercoaster with all that is happening. One minute we feel like we have it under control and the next we find ourselves feeling panic, worry or anger at others who aren't heeding the guidelines to keep us safe from COVID-19. It's all normal, I assure you.

    Ep #56 Navigating COVID-19 Uncertainty

    COVID-19 may've interrupted life as we know it but it doesn't have the power to make us feel angry, anxious, stressed, uncertain or afraid. We ultimately are always in charge of how we feel. Be mindful of what you are thinking now more than ever and refrain from "borrowing" thoughts that lead to panic and anxiety. Now is the time to focus on what you WANT to think and how you WANT to feel in the face of this pandemic.

    What if what you need to heal yourself from compassion fatigue and burnout is right outside your door? The more disconnected we are from nature, the more we suffer as a species.
    Join me as I interview former LVT and fellow Martha Beck Wayfinder coach Angie Stegall where we talk about how nature can be our greatest gift and asset to help combat not only compassion fatigue and burnout but so many other issues we face in our lives today.

    Ep #54 How Comparison Steals Your Joy

    Ep #54 How Comparison Steals Your Joy

    "Comparison is the thief of joy". Right on Theodore Roosevelt! According to social media it looks like every friend and person you follow is having an amazing life, except you.
    You may compare yourself to other veterinarians, techs, managers or directors and feel you come up short. We buy into stories about ourselves that are decades old and simply not true.
    It's time to change all of that. It's time to end the game of compare and despair. Check out this episode if you want to stop comparing for good.

    Ep #53 When Others Are Wrong

    Ep #53 When Others Are Wrong

    Sometimes people are going to be wrong. Veterinary clients, people on social media, someone visiting your shelter or even someone in your personal life. They may just be wrong about you or about the situation. We tend to think we need to prove to them that they are wrong so we can be right. Well guess what? There is no prize ribbon from the Universe for being right. Instead we can just let people be wrong about us and know deep in our bones who we are and what we stand for. Check out this episode!

amazing

this podcast is my reset button and helps me so much. julie is so wonderful and good at this!! i feel positive about myself, my career, and other people—this is really how we all want to feel in life, i think. it’s easy to feel negative and judgmental. but to really be able to train your brain to think differently, to find the goodness and kindness and compassion...now that’s the good stuff. that’s what my brain truly loves. thank you, julie.
