Inside the Episode

One of our dear listeners, Michelle, recently sent in this question: “How do I find joy even when I’m constantly worrying?” Oh man, can you relate? Do you often go through the day feeling anxiety or worry? Do you have a lot of those “what if” questions on repeat? In this solo episode from Carly, she is answering this question, exploring how to calm our anxiety and find joy in situations that we can’t change.

Key Takeaways

  • “In order to see the reality, we need to first assess the threat.”
  • Finding joy doesn’t mean you are happy all the time. It’s deeper than that.
  • Ask these three questions about your worry: What’s the evidence this worry is true? Is this thought helpful? Do I like it?
  • We can counterweight fear and anxiety by using the surprise and delight method.
  • Tap into movement, music, math, or balance to wake up the other parts of your brain.
  • It’s important we learn to recognize the difference between guilt and shame. (Carly shares the difference in this episode!)
