BE THE FIRST TO KNOW WHEN THE NEXT TRIBE IS OPEN FOR REG. SIGN UP FOR THE TRIBE INTEREST LIST Ever feel like you’ve checked off aaaaall the things, all the boxes, all the accomplishments and you look around and you’re still like, “Why do I still feel like shit!!?” If you’re like most, you’ve bought into the idea that the perfect husband/wife/body/career/baby/pair of shoes will surely bring you happiness. And then it doesn’t. So maybe you try perfectionism. Or people-pleasing. (I mean… if he loves you then of course that will change things!) Or maybe you isolate and shut everyone out. (Maybe this feeling will magically go away.) Perhaps you numb yourself with booze, Netflix, or work. If any of that sounds like “Waaaaait! How’d you know!?” then you have to tune into this week’s episode where I chat it up with my very best friend and colleague, Andrea Owen, who just so happened to write a book about it. That’s right, folks. On the show, you’ll hear her talk all about her latest bit o’ brilliance called How to Stop Feeling Like Shit, so you know... you can stop feeling like shit.

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.
