Episode 67: Ditch Negativity and Try Something New

Have you ever felt scared to try something new? I’ve been there, too! Whether it’s a new hobby, exercise routine, or an invitation, finding opportunities to venture out of your comfort zone can not only be positive, but may even turn into something you LOVE! In this episode, I’m sharing about the (sometimes unexpected) ways I’ve benefited from trying something new, and then I’m switching gears to dive deeper into a term I’ve heard a lot lately—toxic positivity.

I’m exploring: 

  • How I took action on something new (and the surprises I learned along the way!)
  • What toxic positivity looks like—and how to counterbalance it
  • Why experiencing your emotions is NOT toxic positivity
  • How to reframe and get support for negativity loops
  • What it means to have toxic independence (and why this is a COMMON problem for caregivers and cancer survivors)
  • And so much more!
