Anxiety and Fear

  • Over the last year we’ve all been through a lot. In addition to the many major costs, there have been smaller, subtler costs as well, including a pervasive feeling of anxiety. In this episode, Forrest and I walk through a normal experience of anxiety and offer some suggestions for how to overcome it.

  • We all have things that frighten us. But some fears can become so core to who we are that we start to organize our lives around not having to experience them. In this not-to-be-missed episode, Forrest and I explore how we can identify and face our "dreaded experiences," which exert a quiet power over our lives.

  • If you live in the United States – and probably for many people who don’t – it’s been a bit of a stressful week. Today Forrest and I talk about relaxing anxiety, weathering the storm, and taking in the year as a whole.

  • Learn how to have more 'equanimity,' which is what allows us to maintain our composure, presence of mind, and perhaps even wellbeing under challenging circumstances.

  • What makes for a great team – whether personal or professional – and how can organizations and individuals create a more psychologically healthy environment? To help us answer that question, today Forrest and I are joined by one of the world’s leading scholars on what helps organizations learn and thrive: Dr. Amy Edmondson.

  • On this episode of Being Well, Dr. Dan Kalb, an expert on anxiety disorders and OCD, joins Forrest and me to help us explore how we can release obsessive fear during this particularly anxiety-provoking time.

  • On today’s episode we explore how we can cope with the natural fears that arise during challenging times, the difference between useful and harmful anxiety, and how to grow the inner strengths we need to thrive when things get tough.

  • We all know that exercise is good for us, but that doesn't always make it easy to do. Dr. Kelly McGonigal joins Forrest and me to share some of the surprising benefits of activity, and how to find ease and joy in movement.

  • On this episode Forrest is joined by the Wall Street Journal best-selling co-author and illustrator of No Hard Feelings: The Secret Power of Embracing Emotions at Work, Liz Fosslien. Liz is also the Head of Content and Editorial at Humu, a company that uses behavioral science to make work better.
