Happy holidays! We are re-releasing an episode we love and think will be encouraging to us all as we head into the holidays this weekend. Entrepreneur, host, and mental health advocate Poppy Jamie joins Jameela to discuss her new book – Happy Not Perfect: Upgrade Your Mind, Challenge Your Thoughts, and Free Yourself From Anxiety. Poppy walks Jameela through her research and explains how we tend to have two “radio channels” in our brain – Stressed FM & Relaxed FM. She helps us understand how to turn down Stressed FM and turn up Relaxed FM. She covers the importance of belly breathing, stiff thinking vs flexible thinking, why we are so overwhelmed, and shares the best advice she was ever given – “never waste a breakdown.”
Happy Not Perfect is out now wherever books are sold
