Hey, Cool Life! Episode 104
This one is about how people-pleasing glosses over your true feelings. And that thinking of others before yourself can become a total resentment fireball.
10:29
November 29, 2019
Hey, Cool Life! Episode 103
This one is about contrary action. Sometimes the kindest, gentlest thing to do is nothing. Not picking up your addiction. Abstaining from the actions that lead to the headspace that causes cravings. But it’s also about doing small actions in opposition to these noisy thoughts so you can build muscle memory around what it feels like to endure these moments. And to prove to yourself that the moment always passes if you let it.
09:05
October 26, 2019
Hey, Cool Life! Episode 102

08:37
October 25, 2019
Hey, Cool Life! Episode 101
This one is about how to handle options. About what to do when you have to make a decision and the stakes are high. It’s about how to choose without the obsession, sleepless number crunching and asking a million questions that other people often don’t have the answers to because they’re not f’in clairvoyant. It’s about trusting that you’ll be okay no matter the outcome.
12:12
October 8, 2019
Hey, Cool Life! Episode 100

12:12
September 28, 2019
Hey, Cool Life! Episode 99

09:52
September 2, 2019
Hey, Cool Life! Episode 98
Boundaries rule! This ep is about how to set boundaries within your self and the practice of dedicating a discrete hour in the day to take the most considered actions around a task that feels overwhelming. And how that can quiet the mind from grinding gears recursively and obsessively without actually doing anything.
11:09
August 17, 2019
Hey, Cool Job! Episode 97

11:06
August 9, 2019
Hey, Cool Life! Episode 96
This one is about how sometimes we may conflate fatigue with a moral issue. Like, I’m tired; WHAT DID I DO WRONG? And an invitation for gentleness when it comes to large-scale projects because perfectionism is not tenable.
13:46
August 1, 2019
Hey, Cool Life! Episode 95
This one is about indecision and ruminating. And how tiring inaction actually is. Plus, a simple decision tree I use when the anxiety is super confusing and I don’t know how best to use my time.
13:44
July 26, 2019
Hey, Cool Life! Episode 94
This is about non-reactivity around my parents in 100+ degree weather. And how the stories I tell myself are just stories (even if they are about old wounds.) And that for all my future tripping and magical thinking around family, my parents probably have deeply skewed ideas and expectations about me too. And it all just is.
13:26
July 8, 2019
Hey, Cool Life! Episode 93

13:34
July 5, 2019
Hey, Cool Life! Episode 92
Wherein I try to forgive myself for having fun even though it might not be “good” for me. And muddling through why I’m convinced I’ll be punished because these foolhardy acts MUST be self sabotage. (They could be; I don’t know!)
11:12
July 3, 2019
Hey, Cool Life! Episode 91
“If you weren’t worried about it, would it even be a problem?” This is about how the brain, as an awesome and creative defense mechanism, likes to believe that it can “solve” the future through ruminating. But is RIGHT NOW as it relates to safety, food, love, really that terrible? My brain just thinks it’s helping and I am trying to find gratitude in that without it taking me out of the present.
10:12
June 27, 2019
Hey, Cool Life! Episode 90
Fear has no arms and legs. It’s only when it compels you to action or inaction that it can truly bite you. This is for those days that you feel entitled to things you can’t seem to find—wisdom, insight, skill—and the self-loathing that can come from this hubris. Another reminder that creativity and recovery are not linear and accepting where you are TODAY can be a salve.
09:32
June 25, 2019
Hey, Cool Life! Episode 89
This is about those days where you build little belief systems around every action. Where you think there’s a right and wrong answer to everything from what you eat to the order in which you do things. Those fearful, superstitious days where you’re convinced that just knowing the outcome will help you move forward despite knowing in your heart that it’s a recipe for total standstill.
18:44
June 19, 2019
Hey, Cool Life! Episode 88
Do you ever get confused when the work that is fluid and loose and maybe even a little easy isn’t the work that you intended to make? This is about how the work that comes most naturally may not be what you want to explore and how distracting and flummoxing the experience can be.
08:23
June 18, 2019
Hey, Cool Life! Episode 87

13:40
May 29, 2019
Hey, Cool Life! Episode 86
This is about indecision, how you can feel dread around the right decision for you, and being superstitious about the “right” way to do creative work because of the seductive nature of the muse narrative.
16:02
May 23, 2019
Hey, Cool Life! Episode 85
Okay, so you might be a perfectionist even if you’re messy and slightly lazy. But you also might be emotionally immature as a person who was considered precocious since forever. This is about how to deal when you’re awkward and leery moving through the world because you’re conflict avoidant to the point of being people avoidant.
13:00
May 20, 2019
Hey, Cool Life! Episode 84
It’s dreary some mornings and you may be in your feelings and that’s okay. This is just a gentle reminder that feelings are not facts and that your version of a story can become more neutral and less painful with time. (As long as you don’t apply a thing to that feeling or try to “fix it” or seek revenge.)
13:08
May 13, 2019
Hey, Cool Life! Episode 83
This is about that negative headspace. Where you feel like you’re in the upside down or a sunken place of your own making because you regret a decision about work or where you elected to be.

This is about bad days. Where you feel like you’re doing all the work and yet you still get walloped by large overwhelming feelings of shame and pain. Days where all you can do is find solace in impermanence and eventually find words to talk about it.
12:23
May 1, 2019
Hey, Cool Life! Episode 80
