Heads up: this episode is an interview in Mandarin with my friend, Simona. She is a Data Analyst now living in Singapore after studying and working in the U.S for many years. We talked about how certain policies impacted her as a child, how a random encounter in college started a healing journey for her; how sharing what she truly wants to explore with her friends and her teachers has attracted more opportunities to connect with people in that field; what is life like after sharing with the world a secret she carried for many years.
A heads up: this episode is an interview recorded in Mandarin, a bit different from my previous episodes.
From studying in Canada, to going back to China to work in Beijing, to being a digital nomad in Southeast Asia, then coming back to Vancouver to work, my guest shared with me what methods have worked her to find her path: exploring new skills and new paths, reflecting back to childhood, and spiritual exploration.
In this episode, I talked about what are stress & anxiety, why they are not inherently bad, and signs that stress & anxiety have become overboard.
Then I shared 3 tips to manage stress (check-in, implement reliefs, 3 focus blocks), 3 tips to work with anxiety (be aware of the thinking traps, how to challenge irrational thoughts, a 4-step process to deal with catastrophizing), and 1 bonus tip to face uncertainty.
