How To *Not* Lose Your Shit With Your Family This Holiday Season EP#323

How To *Not* Lose Your Shit With Your Family This Holiday Season EP#323

Find yourself dreading holiday functions with your family because it’s only a matter of time until your mom pesters you about why you don’t go to church anymore… or you aunt gives you shit for not having kids or not being married… or your uncle gets in a heated (uncomfortable) “discussion” about gun rights? Or perhaps you’re dreading the impending convo where your bro asks you for money. Again.

Even though the holidays are supposed to be merry and bright, they can often be the most stressful when it comes to dealing with our families. Enter years of baggage, a shit-ton of guilt, mix in some alcohol, and you have a family holiday that leaves you feeling like shit instead of connected with those you supposedly love the most. If this sounds any kind of familiar, all is not lost. And, believe it or not, you can totally take back your holiday experience, boundary your ass off, and consciously CHOOSE your focus this holiday. Even if your sister is an ass-hat.

This pod explores:

  • How to prepare for your family function ahead of time to set you up for success… even if your family is giving the circus a run for their money
  • What it really looks like to set up healthy boundaries and actually follow through on them
  • How to avoid (or end) uncomfortable conversations with the utmost grace
  • How to decide exactly what you want to focus on during the get-together… you know, so you can actually enjoy yourself

7 Communication Habits You Need to Break + What to Do Instead – Part 2 EP#322

7 Communication Habits You Need to Break + What to Do Instead – Part 2 EP#322

If you’re like most people, you learned how to address conflict through a process of trial and error. Maybe it was just how your parents did things… just sweeping things under the rug or telling little white lies to make sure everyone else was happy.

And, then you get into your adult life and wonder why you are always pulled to tell lies about why you can’t make it to that one work event instead of simply saying that you have plans. Or maybe now there is a shit-ton of conflict in your relationship, but you keep telling everyone else about it… just not your spouse.

Listen, Love. If this is your sitch you are soooo not alone. It’s likely that you simply were never taught HOW to actually speak up for yourself and say what you really mean. In last week’s episode, I covered off 7 major communication habits we tend to fall into instead of simply saying what we really mean. In this week’s edition, I cover off what you can actually DO about those patterns so that you can truly stand up for yourself. With grace and kindness, of course.

This pod explores:

  • The questions you MUST ask yourself when you feel pulled to write something off or “sweep it under the rug”
  • How to use jokes and being passive aggressive as a gateway to actually say what you mean (this one is easy!)
  • The best way to enter into a challenging convo so that the other person is waaaaay more likely to listen
  • My favorite way to decline invites without being a big ‘ol liar (You can do this, I promise!)

7 Communication Habits You Need to Break + What to Do Instead – Part 1 EP#321

7 Communication Habits You Need to Break + What to Do Instead – Part 1 EP#321

I get it. You were told to never hurt anyone’s feelings. You were told to “not rock the boat”. You were told to “not let people down”. And you took that to heart. When you had a problem with something your bestie said, you swept it under the rug. Don’t open up that can of worms. When you had probs in the bedroom, you told your bestie and your therapist, but you could neeeever tell your spouse! I mean… that would destroy him/her.

And, you continue this pattern throughout your life. When you’re pissed at your boss, you find co-workers to collude with, but never bring up the issue to the powers that be. When you don’t like how your mother-in-law is butting into your parenting, you bite your lip. And, then maybe have an explosive fight with your partner about it.

Listen, I feel you. For many of us, we have lived our entire lives believing that saying what we really mean is a recipe for disaster and should be avoided at all costs. But here’s the clincher: If you constantly do and say shit instead of saying what you really need/want/feel, you are sending yourself a huge, subconscious message that everyone else’s wants, needs, and opinions are more important than yours. Not to mention that you’re kinda being a liar.

In this episode, I look at six common tactics we employ instead of saying what we really mean, hoping that the other party will be able to read our signs and signals and magically be what we need. How’s that working out? That’s what I thought.

This pod explores:

  • The most common self-talk we use to justify “sweeping it under the rug”
  • How joking about shit you’re actually serious about is completely shooting yourself in the foot
  • How to know if there is something you need to give voice to… even if you really don’t want to
  • The ways in which you may be a big ‘ol liar and haven’t even realized it (It’s okay. We can fix it.)

HOW TO STOP CARING SOOOOO MUCH WHAT OTHERS THINK EP#319

HOW TO STOP CARING SOOOOO MUCH WHAT OTHERS THINK EP#319

We grow up buying into the idea that we are responsible for everyone else’s emotions. As we move into adulthood, that often looks like NOT bringing up important topics to your spouse, overlooking offensive comments from family, or allowing coworkers to walk all over you.

Quite simply, we buy into the notion that everyone else’s thoughts, opinions, and beliefs are more important than ours. Perhaps you can relate. Perhaps you worry so much about what others may think that you’ve completely lost what matters most to YOU. Maybe you don’t even know what your opinions are because you’ve always been focused on everyone BUT yourself.

Well, my friend, it’s time to change that shit up. In this week’s episode, I share four steps you can immediately implement in order to let go of what everyone else thinks and start tapping into YOUR wants and desires for a change. And, don’t worry, you’re going to do it all with the utmost grace and kindness. #noneedtobeadick

This pod explores:

  • How to tap into what you’re REALLY responsible for when it comes to making others happy
  • Getting past the idea that you are “letting someone down” (yes, it’s actually possible)
  • My favorite tool to feel good about your choices without being so concerned what your mom/bestie/boss will think
  • Why people-pleasers are liars and how to get yourself back on the Honesty Bandwagon

How to Establish Boundaries Like a #Boss EP#318

How to Establish Boundaries Like a #Boss EP#318

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you have undoubtedly heard the notion of “setting boundaries”, but have you ever wondered exactly what that means? Or maybe you drummed up the nerve to tell someone (like, your mom, boss, or bestie) how you really felt about something only to be blatantly ignored? (Or worse… not even taken seriously.)

How do you actually go about establishing boundaries that are clear, respected, and adhered to? It’s hard enough to broach a challenging topic with someone, let alone follow through on your boundary.

Here’s the deal… if you’ve been constantly bitchin’ and moanin’ about something, and you’ve been super vocal about it to everyone, except the person who really needs to know you’re (ah-hem) “upset”, then it’s probably time to have a tough convo. In this week’s episode, I share my three-step process to establishing boundaries in a way in which you can be heard and own your personal power.

This pod explores:

  • What-the-hell a boundary even is
  • The tell-tale place to find where a boundary is sorely needed
  • My three-step process to having these challenging convos
  • What to do if someone flat-out doesn’t accept your request

10 All-Natural (For Real) Anxiety Hacks EP#317

You have a job interview coming up, but you can’t calm your mind from thinking about the worst case scenarios. You have a huge presentation coming up at work, and every time you think about it, your palms sweat and your heart races. You have a family event coming up and damn-it if your mother-in-law doesn’t spike your anxiety! Sound familiar? Trust, I get it.

Although anxiety disorders and anxious thoughts are more commonplace than ever, it can be challenging to find tactics and strategies that actually help.

In this week’s show, I sound off on ten, super simple and completely natural hacks you can use to combat your anxiety. Believe it or not, you actually have much more power over this than you think. You may have anxiety, but honey, it does not have you.

This pod explores:

  • Small changes you can make to your diet that can dramatically help curb anxiety
  • My favorite physical activity that takes five seconds (no shit) and helps squash anxiety immediately
  • How to use tapping and NLP techniques to get through an anxious moment
  • How to use meditation and visualization to quell anxiety around upcoming events

9 Communication Hacks to Control Your Tone of Voice + *NOT* Fly Off the Handle EP#316

9 Communication Hacks to Control Your Tone of Voice + *NOT* Fly Off the Handle EP#316

Ever feel like you’re expressing yourself like a #boss and the other person is like, “Why are you yelling? Please don’t scream at me.” And then you’re all, “Whaaaa?! I’M NOT SCREAMING!” Or have you ever addressed something with your partner/bestie/co-worker and they told you your tone was a bit harsh? Um. Yeah. Me too.

Recently, a listener reached out to the show and asked how she could better control her voice when talking about serious issues with her husband. Often we think we are being crystal-fucking-clear about WHAT we are saying to another person, but in the passion of our emotions, we often lose sight of HOW we are expressing our thoughts.

In this episode, I spill nine, super-easy-to-implement communication hacks you can use to control your tone, not lose your ever-lovin’ mind, and communicate in a way that gets your point across and your needs met. Boom. Just like that.

This pod explores:

  • My favorite body-related, go-to tactics to use in the middle of a heated conversation
  • How to develop a “code word” or “phrase” to signal the convo is going off the rails
  • What to do if you actually DO lose your shit and need to clean up your mess

9 Ways To Cultivate Optimism EP#315

9 Ways To Cultivate Optimism EP#315

Recently a pod listener wrote to the show asking how one could actively cultivate optimism… especially if you happen to be a cynic, a skeptic, or tend toward pessimism. If you aren’t constantly shitting glitter, it’s likely that you’ve found yourself struggling to find the bright side or seeing that damn glass half full.

I feel you. With the advent of social media, it’s damn near impossible to pop online and NOT see something that makes you want to throw your phone/computer/tablet out the window… or at someone else. Not to mention those negative co-workers, family members, and well-meaning friends who seem to always focus on the shit storm in their lives rather than having an attitude of gratitude.

If you find it tough to stay positive and truly want to cultivate some kickass optimism, you won’t want to miss this episode. I sound off on nine, super simple tactics you can immediately implement to usher in some killer good vibes. Get ready to throw on those rose colored glasses, because when you stay in a positive mindset, you manifest a shit ton of more positivity in your life. #yesplease

This pod explores:

  • What steps to take when shit hits the fan and you soooo aren’t feelin’ the optimism
  • My favorite challenge to keep your mindset skewed toward the great things in your life
  • How to use technology to condition an optimistic mindset
  • How to create daily [and easy] practices that keep you vibin’ high

Ever have *that thing* where you make a positive life choice for yourself, like getting in shape, getting on medication, or choosing a new career path, and the peeps in your life are less than supportive? They say things like, “Why would you stick to that workout; You always give up on everything?” or “Do you want to be dependent on that crazy medication all your life?” or “Why don’t you get yourself a ‘real’ job?” Whether they mean well or not, it can be so discouraging (and downright infuriating) when the people in your life shoot down your excitement and enthusiasm for something you are #legit pumped about.

In this episode, I dissect a listener submission that asks, “How can I deal with all the naysayers and bullies that constantly make snide and hurtful remarks now that I’m committed and thrilled about my weight-loss process?” I discuss five strategies you can employ to get rid of the Negative Nelly’s in your life and speak up for yourself like the Confident Courtney that you are! Plus, I give you the exact words to say, so get your paper and pen handy!

This pod explores:

  • The first step to take if you feel like the peeps in your life are N E G A T I V E
  • How to prepare ahead of time for sticky get togethers, meet-ups and events that often leave you freaking out about what dipshit thing people may say to you
  • Four specific tactics and approaches to take to speak up for yourself depending on who you are talking to
