Gabrielle Treanor


Today's Episode

Feeling like you couldn’t cope if things went wrong, if life became super challenging, is a fear overthinkers share. It’s behind a lot of the What If-ing and the need to overplan and be in control at all times. There’s a skill we can all develop and strengthen to help us feel able to cope – resilience.

In this episode we look at:

  • How the fear of not being able to deal with life keeps us scared of life
  • What resilience is
  • How being resilient reduces overthinking
  • Different ways we can build and strengthen our own resilience
