In this episode, we focus on your worried brain.

If you have a habit of worrying a lot, it’s because a part of you believes that worry is useful.

In this episode, I show you why worry isn’t useful and how you can redirect your worried brain to more productive–and enjoyable – thinking.

If you ditch the myth that worrying is productive, you will free up your beautiful brain to create the life you want. And that’s what I want for you!

If you find this episode useful and you’ve got some worrywarts in your life who might benefit from hearing it, please share it with them. Imagine what would happen if we each worried 10% less and spend 10% more time thinking creatively and expansively about our lives!

I’m a former international tax lawyer and senior partner with Ernst & Young. I left the law in 2014 to learn how to paint. After a couple years painting and selling my work, I became passionate about helping other people who feel stuck in their careers and lives and want to feel more personally fulfilled, invigorated and soul connected. I now spend my time painting, coaching, and creating live events at the George Russell Academy of Creative Expansion in beautiful Prince Edward County, Ontario, Canada.
