EP95 Tools and Techniques for Building Your Emotional Resilience

NOVEMBER 21, 2023 | EPISODE 95

Ever felt like your emotions are driving you, rather than you driving them? It’s a common feeling, and one that we tackle head-on in this insightful episode. We promise that by the end, you’ll have a suitcase full of tools to help you navigate emotional turbulence, manage stress, and come out stronger on the other side. 

Let’s take a journey together, starting with building our emotional resilience toolkit. We share our personal experiences, likening emotional responses to a car’s check engine light, and giving you the tools to decode these signals. As we drive on, we navigate tricky family dynamics that could be influencing your emotional responses, before taking a pit stop to talk about coping mechanisms. We’ve been there – turning to food, shopping, TV – but we’ll discuss how you can shift from survival mode to a healthier state of being through understanding and acknowledging these coping mechanisms.

The road doesn’t end here, though. We’ve got more ground to cover, like the link between your emotional triggers and physical needs and effective techniques for managing stress and anxiety. We even tackle holiday stress, so next time Aunt Karen’s passive-aggressive comments start grating at the dinner table, you’ll be equipped to handle it with grace. And don’t forget to share your journey with us – we’re always eager to hear from you! So buckle up and join us on this enlightening journey to mastering your emotional health.
