Listen: Zaidi, Mexico, Gen Gotch discussed on Jen Gotch is OK...Sometimes
"Sometimes I can help them like I instead of feeding off their anxiety. I mind get suppressed so that I can help them. And then obviously like if I can travel with someone who so confident and has no anxiety, but is also sympathetic to mind. That's great. But most of the time, obviously, I'm traveling alone. So that's why I had to work this out for myself. How did you learn to reset your brain slash thinking? How much practicing does it take to reset? Well, I did a lot of reading. I featured a lot of those books in the. Books books books books by gen podcast books. I love volume one whatever it was called. I did EM DR. I didn't do a lot of it. I did three or four visits that I found to be very helpful. Because that's actually where I learned about mindfulness, which is probably the biggest thing I learned that helped me reset my brain and thinking also having a very strong desire to heal and change after feeling like I hit rock bottom. So I was highly motivated talking about it has helped a lot whether I'm talking into a microphone or talking to someone in person or talking someone through their own issues has really helped me kind of learn and grow, and it takes a long time the change didn't happen overnight. But but I think for me as long as I see progress cool with it. I do get impatient. I I want things to happen faster than they do. I will say this takes a long time. Time, but you should be able to see progress along the way like I did like every trip I took after my really bad travelling Zaidi trip was was incrementally better. So it wasn't like I had this awful trip. And then I was like the next trip. I'm going to take I'm going to be awesome. It was like there were several trips in between that were pretty good. And that's it. So in conclusion. I'll probably let studio Jen that has a great Mike and has the help from Lauren, my amazing producer wrap this whole thing up. But but mostly. Idle though, it does say, I think I said at all I just wanted to share it with you because it seemed important and impactful, and and we travel all the time. And honestly we deal with anxiety all the time. And I think there's a lot in here that you could extract and apply to some other major trigger in your life, major anxiety inducing activity that you do. And and that part about your connection to your thoughts and applying emotion to every thought, and deciding that you don't have to is probably the biggest takeaway. But maybe I'm going to say that in a more chicken that way in a second. Okay. I got to go to Cracker Barrel with my dad, or he'll be devastated. I get the sunrise sampler, and I don't do the cinnamon apples. Do two servings of the hash Brown casserole in case, you're keeping track. Bye. So there you have it with time hardwork introspection and mindfulness during Zaidi's can be conquered or at least diminished. I hope he can use this insight to tackle your owning Zayed's happy traveling by. What do you know about the after show is the J G O K after show, you don't know about the after show, but it's the show after the show after the show that I'm Phil. Wait, record Mexico. Wow. I had that right in my head. Like, I practiced it in my head a couple of times before I started singing minute it flowed perfectly. Sometimes it ends up coming out perfectly. When it's perfect in my head is sometimes it just doesn't. But we know perfection doesn't exist anyways. So it's totally fine. I've been in Mexico for almost a week. I've had some of the worst depression. I've had in a while at chronicled it on my Instagram feed at gen Gotch. You know, what it is? We're on their together. All the time. I feel much better. Now, you can hear it in my voice. I'm grateful. I'm gonna go eat some cheese filled tortillas and enjoy my last Dan half here. Okay, issue that doesn't make any sense. But it's there anyways by."
