Season 4 Teacher Wellbeing Podcast Episode 5 Ways to Worry Less (Part 2), with Gigi Langer Blog Title

Listen to part 2 of my interview with Gigi Langer, an author, speaker, teacher and educator of pre-service teachers.

Gigi has a really powerful story about her journey with fear, worry and substance abuse, which she shares in her wonderful book 50 Ways to Worry Less Now: Reject Negative Thinking to Find Peace, Clarity and Connection.

This is a 2-part episode because Gigi and I had so much to talk about. This episode is part 2 of the interview where Gigi shares some of the excellent techniques in her book, including the best acronym I’ve ever heard, and some fantastic book suggestions too.
