end the cycle of anxiety

Confronting emotional challenges and anxiety are part of life—we can’t totally avoid them. What we can do is witness how we engage with triggers to better regulate our emotional responses.

On the latest episode of Dear Gabby, I take calls from listeners who are dealing with a range of emotionally challenging situations—parenting while healing, venturing into a new career, navigating sobriety and more.

Here are few of the universal tips I offered these beautiful callers:

noticing somatic experiences

Checking in with your body is crucial to managing your emotional responses in a healthy way because we physically experience emotions. The first step is becoming aware of what’s happening in our body so that we can move through it.

offering comfort and repair

Taking ownership of your narrative and embracing your sexuality and past is not just about individual healing—it’s a collective rebellion against a history of subjugation and silence. Hannah describes how the microphone became her tool for liberation in the freeing space of stand-up comedy.

in this episode you’ll:

  • How to check-in with your body and regulate your nervous system
  • The mindful techniques I use when triggers come up while parenting
  • Strategies for curbing future tripping in a new romantic relationship
  • How to honor the process of recovery and self-care in early sobriety

No matter what challenge you’re navigating, self-compassion is your best friend and the best way forward.
