About the Episode:

We all have an inner critic that is alive and well.

Sometimes the inner critic's self-judgment is obvious, i.e. your not smart enough, your too fat, your lazy, etc.

But often, our inner critic can be much more subtle and the self-judgment it offers comes in the forms of "shoulds."

"I shouldn't eat anymore dessert."

"I shouldn't take anymore vacation time, they'll think I'm lazy."

"I should go hang out with my in-laws."

These should statements seem innocuous, but when left unchecked they cause serious havoc to our brain.

On this week's podcast episode, I show you how to recognize when you're inner critic is "shoulding" all over you, and teach you how to stop.
