7 Ways To Get “Unstuck” [TJJS:EP237]
4 days ago
JOIN THE TRIBE! Recently a listener wrote in to the show, asking what to do when you find yourself feeling stuck. You know that racket, no? Stuck in a relationship... stuck in a soul-sucking job... stuck in a friendship that doesn't serve you. The list goes on. Many times, when we feel "stuck", we look outside ourselves for the magic answer instead of addressing things that are totally within our power. Without knowing it, we fall into patterns and habits that ultimately leave us feeling stagnant and we forget to take action on the things that we already know bring us joy. Like, getting back to that knitting project you loved. Or picking up your guitar again. Whatever... you get the picture. In this episode, I dig into seven different strategies and questions you can ask yourself to break out of your stuck-ness in order to create much more happiness and fulfillment. You may actually be super surprised how easy it can be! This pod explores: Why you think you "don't have a choice" and what the real truth is How to break up the monotony of your habits and switch shit up, creating much more momentum and movement How to clear out the clutter in your world that is unknowingly keeping you stuck-as-fuck Why you must create a plan if you want to change your current situation REGISTRATION NOW OPEN! DEEP, DOWN + DIRTY: THE TRIBE Join me for a 12-week, group coaching immersion designed to take you from struggling in the land of "shoulds", guilt trips, and comparison to flying on the wings of confidence, courage, and self-love. Imagine waking up feeling confident and proud of yourself! Hello! Or how about telling someone "No, I'm not available for your event" and feeling Not. An. Ounce. Of. Guilt. Plus, now your time is all freed up for mani/pedis and mimosas. Listen, when you actually LIKE who you are, you'll finally start the biz you've been too fearful to start, finally get back in shape + love your hot bod at the same time, and/or have time for the shit you really want in your life: like finally signing up for roller derby or planning that trip to Italy. #grazie Get ready to get waaaay more done, alleviate massive stress, and feel Waaaay. Fucking.

Refreshing, engaging and downright enjoyable ways to improve your life. Free! What more could you ask?
Amy and Mr Smith provide love and life advice you can really take to the bank. I tune in to every pod, even if I don't think it's directly relevant to me. Nine times out of ten, I learn something new, or have some new insight, that gives me a shove in the right direction. Plus, it's always so much fun. These guys love to laugh, and make their listeners laugh, too.
When it comes to the life coaching part, don't expect hand holding or baby steps. Amy tells it to you straight. Reeeeeeeally straight. But only in the way that your best friend would. That's what the pod is like - screwing up your courage to talk to two great friends about your inner worries, and then realising it's not so bad after all and heck, you can even do something about those worries.
Every episode is a joy to listen to. Trust The Joy Junkie.
