The body is an amazing creation that provides an internal navigation system for helping us navigate what is useful and what is dangerous. It gives us physical clues (sensations) and emotional clues (emotions). Today I want to challenge you to really tap into what’s going on and ask yourself whether it’s a sensation or an emotion. Then when you solve for it, make sure you’re solving for the real problem and not just distracting or buffering. I’m also explaining to you why I am working on increasing the amount of discomfort I can tolerate and just getting good at feeling negative emotions and sensations. While this might sound odd, it is for sure the way to achieve your dream goals and it’s something you can get good at doing. Are you ready? Here we go.

    Hi Jody,

    I just want to thank you for your insights that you share on your podcasts. I have been through depression several times, some PPD, some situational. I started to feel myself slipping again a month or so ago, and it worried me. I didn’t want to take medication again, and I was weighing my options and trying to decide which route would be best for me to take. A friend sent me one of your podcasts, and it literally took my breath away and it has changed my life. I didn’t realize how powerful my thoughts are, and how, when I let myself go down a self-talk negative pathway, that I was quickly spiralling downwards. I decided to be vigilant with my thoughts, be kinder to myself and my situation, and I am no longer struggling with those depressive symptoms. I am SO grateful. I share your website with as many people as will listen to me. Thanks again.
