Ep. 79 - Helping Parents with Their Anxiety | Dr. Lauren Cook

Parenting in Real Life

We've talked on this podcast about what to do when your kids have anxiety (episodes 66, 35, and 29), but we haven't talked about when the PARENTS have anxiety.  Anxiety and depression can manifest in so many different ways that it might be hard to recognize. This interview with Dr. Lauren Cook is just what we needed to hear as we are still in this pandemic and anxiety and the unknown is high. Dr. Cook shares with us what anxiety looks like, what to do when you are struggling with anxiety as a parent, what do we do when we feel anxiety and our children are around, and we talk about real self care.  In the episode, Dr. Cook mentioned a values worksheet.  You can find that here: https://courses.drlaurencook.com/Defining-Your-Values You can also find Dr. Cook at https://www.drlaurencook.com/ and on instagram at dr.laurencook. This week’s Product That Makes Parenting Stink Less is a learn to swim life jacket. But as we learned from our experience at Walmart, not all swim floaties are created equal.  This one is our favorite.

But, What If You Did? - Real Talk, Millennial Life Lessons & Exploring Life's Curiosities

In, episode 32 - Interview - Dr. Lauren Cook on Decision Making Through those Messy, Uncomfortable Life Transitions. Topics include - 2020 was the first time in our lives that life was happening to us rather than for us. 2020 has been the ultimate waiting game - how to do the best with the day you have in front of you? Is waiting the right choice for me or is waiting a form of avoidance? Is this coming from a well thought out decision or by fear of being uncomfortable? Distress tolerance - getting comfortable with being uncomfortable. Transferrable skills and how to sell your story. We all are capable of learning, the learning process just involves some level of discomfort. Everyone starts somewhere and it's natural to not excel at first! Breaking down decision making! (Lauren is launching a course on this in May! The waitlist is linked below!) You have to know what you value. Reality check - we can't ignore the logistical challenges! "Every decision has risk. Every choice has consequences. We have to know that we are resilient enough to handle whatever the consequences are." - Dr. Lauren Cook "Burnout requires boundaries" - Dr. Lauren Cook Put the to-do list down, put down your phone, give yourself a break even when rest feels uncomfortable. What is the worst case scenario? It's often not as bad as we think it is. Habits and value shifts. The increased need for empathy. The shift millennials are collectively experiencing. Why so many are looking for that fresh start!
