Feelings like doubt and inadequacy can drive to self-sabotage. We may overeat, procrastinate, or numb out with alcohol or TV.
Whatever your coping mechanism of choice, the bottom line is: running from your emotions backfires.
No one knows that better than my friend, Ali Shapiro, a pioneering health and nutrition expert, who helps women transform their bodies by transforming their emotions.
I was honored when Ali asked me to be a guest on her podcast Insatiable, because not only could I talk to her for hours just nerding out about psychology, but I’m also personal fan of the show!
When Ali emailed me and asked if we could have a nuanced conversation about being a highly sensitive person, I was so in.
You don’t want to miss this one! We talk about:
- The counter-intuitive way to make self-doubt an ally, not an enemy. (ps. Have you seen my TEDx talk yet?)
- How being highly conscientious gives you a competitive edge yet can also turn into a weakness and how to mitigate the downside of being so on the ball.
- The impostor syndrome and how it gets high achievers to question so much about themselves and the solution is not to play to your strengths.
- A simple self-care tool you can use to transform emotions into power.
