    Q: When is exercise unhealthy?

    A: When it’s a compulsion to be challenged and resisted!

    In this, our second session with real OCD and anxiety patient “Larisa,” Dr. Maggie reminds us that anything can be a compulsion, and anything can be an exposure, depending on how it functions for you. Even “good” and “healthy” behaviors can become problematic when we use them to avoid anxiety or emotional processing.

    This month, we’re focusing on preparing for the anxious moment and trigger awareness. As you listen, think about some of your most common triggers, both internal and external, and what behavior those triggers compel you to engage in. For extra credit, ask yourself what the opposite of that activity would be.

    Feeling brave? Try sharing one of your triggers in the comments!

    4:56 - Internal vs. external triggers

    9:16 - “Did I just hit someone??”

    12:53 - That “just right” thinking

    Even before COVID, today’s guest “Larisa” (a real OCD & Anxiety patient in the Huddle.care program) was uncomfortable with going against the grain and worried that something terrible might happen if she stepped out of line, spoke out of turn, or failed to over-prepare for anything that might come up. But thanks to Dr. Maggie and Huddle, “Larisa” is getting comfortable with discomfort, avoiding avoidance, and transforming from a conflict-averse people-pleaser to finding real satisfaction in speaking her mind and being real with the people she cares about.

Dr. Perry is a generous and intuitive therapist who treats her clients to with compassion and respect. Her suggestions are helpful and her style is open and thoughtful. This podcast can help all people deal with what makes them unfree. Highly recommended!!

Chicago•1 ,

Excellent approach!

Dr. Perry’s approach in both her overall methodology and then the delivery/education that happens through this podcast combine in a really engaging way. The podcasts are informative and take complex concepts and simplify the underlying components to help reach new understanding, beliefs, and ways to achieve your goals. I also enjoy the varied perspectives you get from the speakers she brings on the show.
