    199: Dating from the Adult Chair

    199: Dating from the Adult Chair

    Everybody wants to be happy, and most of us want a partner to share our happiness and lives with. But finding that partner? Easier said than done.

    Dating can be exhilarating, confusing, fun, exhausting and all the things. Experiencing connection with another person is deeply meaningful and also incredibly complex — especially when we bring our own pasts, traumas and expectations into the early stages of a relationship.

    198: Transforming Fear

    198: Transforming Fear

    Fear creeps in and out of our lives all the time. It's just a human emotion, but it's a sneaky one. It starts small, then all of the sudden, we're overtaken by it until it becomes paralyzing. A little bit of fear can quickly turn into a lot of fear.

    A few weeks ago, I shared a story with you about some anxiety I was experiencing and a six-step process to move from panic to peace quickly (check out episode #195 to discover this process).

    197: Know and Grow Self Love

    197: Know and Grow Self Love

    The other day I heard from someone who was having a bad day. She asked if this meant she had lost her self-love and how she could know she had enough self-love. That conversation made me realize how little we know about self-love, and it inspired me to do this show.

    196: Spotting Covert Narcissism

    196: Spotting Covert Narcissism

    We all know the word “narcissism.” We can usually spot a narcissist a mile away. They are loud, want all the attention and can be obnoxious. This is known as overt narcissism.

    But can you spot a covert narcissist? They can be tricky, with a more "subtle" form of narcissism. It can sting just as badly, but you have no idea it's happening (at least not initially) because it's so subtle.

    195: From Anxiety & Panic to Peace

    195: From Anxiety & Panic to Peace

    What do you do when anxiety creeps up out of nowhere and sends you into a state of panic? Maybe it’s a stressful call or email, an overflowing to-do list or all of your worries being flung in your face at once, until it feels like fear is taking over your body. 

    You know the feeling: irrational thoughts, a racing heart, a mind that’s racing even faster and even symptoms like a headache or upset stomach.

    194: Purge, Connect & Reach: 3 Simple Steps to Change Your Mood

    194: Purge, Connect & Reach: 3 Simple Steps to Change Your Mood

    There is nothing worse than when we find ourselves caught in a bad mood. Whether we wake up on the wrong side of the bed or something triggers us and sends us into a funk, we all experience moments or even days where we feel a bit "down."

    Often, it can be difficult to identify where our mood has come from or why we feel this way. We might just know we feel bad, sad, lonely, anxious, depressed or emotionally "off." It can be hard to get back on track when we don't even know what's causing it!

Newly discovered your program

Thank you, I recently discovered I was codependent and found you though the insight timer app. I’m totally obsessed but it has transformed my perspective and has opened my eyes to what I have been experiencing. I’ve listened to your podcast from the beginning and it feels so life-changing. I’ve shared with my family and students.

Life changing

I discovered The Adult Chair a little over a week ago and there are not enough words I can say to express how it’s changed my life (and will continue to do so). I can’t wait to keep learning a lot more about it and live by this model. Thank you, Michelle!
