1. Anxiety and control
Unf*ck Your Brain Podcast

Ever feel like you’re holding onto things that are completely out of your control? Like you’re clinging onto stress, anxiety, and overwhelm as if they were life preservers? If that hits close to home, then you’ll definitely want to tune in to this episode.

Kara Loewentheil is on the mic, and she’s talking about something we can all relate to – the importance of letting go of things that are beyond our grasp. It’s a struggle for so many of us, right?

But here’s the cool part: Kara doesn’t just talk about the “why” – she’s all about the “how.” She shares some incredibly practical and actionable tips for letting go of that stress and anxiety that might be weighing you down. And trust us, her advice isn’t just fluffy talk; it’s stuff you can really put into practice.

Imagine feeling lighter, more in control of your emotions, and less bogged down by things you can’t change. Sounds pretty great, doesn’t it? Well, that’s what Kara’s aiming to help you achieve.

2. Overwhelm: Is Our Exhaustion a Sign That We’re Ticking Time Bombs?
We Can Do Hard Things podcast

You know how sometimes you feel like you’re drowning in expectations and pressure to be the perfect everything – mother, partner, employee? Well, you’re not alone, and this episode is speaking directly to that feeling.

Glennon Doyle and Amanda Doyle, two incredible voices, are teaming up to discuss what feels like an epidemic of overwhelm in women. It’s like they’ve read our minds, right? They’re digging deep into that unspoken pressure so many women feel to excel at everything, and let’s be real, it’s exhausting just thinking about it.

What’s so fantastic about this conversation is how relatable it is. They’re not just talking about the problem; they’re getting into the nitty-gritty of how it affects our daily lives. You might even find yourself saying, “That’s exactly how I feel!” more than once. We know we did!

They don’t shy away from talking about how this pressure can lead to burnout, something we bet many of us have felt or are feeling. It’s a conversation that’s both enlightening and comforting, like a chat with friends who truly get what you’re going through.

So whether you’re folding laundry, commuting to work, or taking a little “me-time” (you deserve it!), this is one episode you’ll want to have playing in the background. Glennon and Amanda’s insights are like a warm hug, reminding you that it’s okay not to be perfect.
