Steal This From My Therapist: 2 Steps to Flip a Bad Day Into an Amazing One
The Mel Robbins Podcast
You know those days when you just feel “off”? Well, last week, both my friend Amy and I were having bad days.
Thankfully, I had just had an appointment with my amazing therapist that morning.
So, as Amy and I started to talk about why we didn’t “feel like ourselves,” I got this crazy idea that maybe we should invite YOU to join us as the conversation started to unfold.
We decided to turn on a recording device and unpack how we were feeling – on the fly.
I need to say: I stole everything you’re about to hear from my therapist Anne, and you should steal it too.
This is way more than just learning how to put on a happy face.
These tools are truly transformational because they help you tap back into the incredible power within you.
This is a very intimate and special episode that unfolds live.
So I’m inviting you right now: pull up a seat at the kitchen table with Amy and me.
Join us. Don’t just listen, but close your eyes and do the exercises with us.
Do not miss out on what happens near the end. It is magical and I certainly did not see it coming.
And I know you’re going to want to see the cowboy boots: don’t worry, they are in the show notes at www.MelRobbins.com/episode-7
