F*ck Anxiety! (Part II)

Jun 29, 2021

In This Episode

So many listeners loved the first “F*ck Anxiety!” episode in week 10 that it seemed like a good idea to share EVEN MORE tips and strategies for understanding, managing, and mitigating this common problem. This time, Sarah Knight walks you through her favorite tool for cutting through the noise in your head to identify the source of your anxiety, also known as “naming your tarantulas.” (And in case that sounds frightening, don’t worry, there’s also a segment about puppies.) Enjoy, and as always, listen to the end for the NFG tip of the week! Available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Radio.com, or wherever you get your podcasts. New episode every Tuesday.

Today’s topics:

  • Naming your tarantulas: an exercise
  • The Fourth Freakout Fund (Goodwill)
  • Constant Crisis Mode
  • Anxiety and personal responsibility – a hot take
  • Crating your emotional puppies
