Tiny podcast now. Here are some statistics By the mental health comedy data team the data. Team it's our analytics group. Ninety percent of all people spend ninety eight point six percent of their lives thinking about the past and worrying about the future. Five percent are in denial and the other five percent believe that. The real housewives are real housewives. Today's show is brought to you by thera- tour thera- tour is the new guided mental vacation. App ferriter helps you get away from it all while staying right where you are. These are short one to five minute mental vacations that you take visually or audio. Only you have other voices that guide you about wonderful people places and things that you can go to in the moment or you can program your own voice and thera- tour provides playful distractions so you can learn to let it all go when distracting thoughts entered the picture. You're on a beautiful sandy beach looking into a beautiful ocean soaking in the sun and the sea. And there's a guy who looks just like your landlord and you owe him money not now though because now you're on a sandy beach. Happy and breezy. No man or woman is an island but you can go to one any time with their tour. Two quick things one is. I don't know about you but the thing that always sorta gets in my way and causes me. A lot of frustration is when. I'm thinking about the future or living in the past and i do that a lot especially when i'm stressed out about something. I find that my thoughts snowball about what. I don't wanna have happened in the future. Horror horror thoughts like a harm movie like a movie trailer and then thinking about the past and things didn't work out. So i i realized that what's really bothering me is that i'm thinking about the future of the past not the situation itself which is rarely rarely matches up with the horrors that i think in my head. The other thing is that we feel we me. I feel like. I have to do everything perfectly if i use skill if i use a practice if i exercise whatever i do i have to do it perfectly and it keeps me from doing it so just wanted to share those two little things that have made my life a living hell.

Coming up next
