How to Overcome Workplace Anxiety and Stress
In this episode, I am going to talk about stress and anxiety in the workplace. In order to overcome stress and anxiety in the workplace, it is SO important to accurately identify the specific stressor within work, as opposed to assuming that work itself is the problem. Sometimes simple shifts make huge differences in a person’s psychological and emotional well being. So in this episode, I will be discussing THREE areas to consider if you are feeling a lot of stress and anxiety related to your work.
Number 1 - Your Work Environment or Team
Number 2 - Your Individual Responsibilities
Number 3 - Your Personal Growth
Exploring these three areas will help you develop better self-awareness of your current situation, and ultimately take better corrective actions in your life. So if you are struggling with stress and anxiety...
How to Handle Unemployment Anxiety
In this episode, I discuss Anxiety and Unemployment. The economic impact of COVID-19 has resulted in a large number of people losing their jobs. Now life during a global pandemic is stressful enough, but when you add more layers of problems (like financial uncertainty) into the mix, it’s no wonder we are seeing a dramatic spike in mental health issues across the board. Now I speak from experience when I say that losing a job can seem like the end of the world, especially when it happens unexpectedly.
But it is critical to maintain perspective and realize that this moment is simply the end of that chapter of your life and is by no means the end of your story. So in this episode, I will be sharing my experiences with job loss and bouncing back from it. I’ll also share some additional tips to help you through this transitional...
How to Manage Chaotic Times & Heal From Within
I have always believed that true healing and restoration comes from within. And I also believe that if we want change in the world, it starts within each one of us. When you focus on healing yourself you are focusing on something in your control. And this enables you to take action on improving yourself, which will ultimately have a ripple effect of healing in others. I truly believe that’s why Mahatma Gandhi said, “be the change you wish to see in the world.” I think he knew that chance begins with the individual. Because when you are a pillar of strength amidst chaos, other people are forced to look at you and respond.
So in this episode, I discuss some important steps we can each individually take to help heal and restore a world lost in chaos. I would like to encourage you not to let this storm knock you off...
The Importance of Being Authentic
In this episode, I discuss the importance of authenticity and how it plays a large role in our recovery. From a very early age our emotional needs revolve around two things - the ability to attach to our caregivers and the ability to be authentic. However, if we learn that being authentic threatens our attachment we will almost always choose attachment over authenticity. This can lead to us suppressing different aspects of ourselves, which in turn can manifest into a variety of physical, mental, and emotional problems. In this episode, I discuss how being authentic can help set us free from our inner struggles and live a more fulfilling life. Enjoy!
All right. Hey my friends and welcome to another episode of the restored mind show. My name is Matt Codde and thank you so much for tuning in. And, um, today's episode is going to be...
The Importance of Telling The Truth
In this episode, I discuss the importance of honesty and why it is crucial for true recovery. Right now, we are living in a very clear imbalance of integrity on many different levels. On a societal level, we are presented with misinformation and even disinformation from news outlets and politicians on both sides of the spectrum. And on an individual level, many of us struggle with keeping simple promises to ourselves, not to mention our friends and family. It’s no wonder many of us are experiencing such an extreme level of internal discord during this pandemic. Which is exactly why I wanted to start a new series on telling the truth. The truth is important because it enables us to see the world how it really is, which in turn allows us to focus and solve the real problems we are facing. In this episode, I introduce some initial ideas on why...
Distractions & Increased Mental Illness
In this episode, I discuss several major mental health issues that are growing during this global pandemic. According to initial research, there is an alarming increase in the number of domestic violence, suicide, drug overdose, and child abuse cases during this pandemic. Now, I know it’s easy to quickly put the blame on macro forces beyond our control such as COVID-19 and the mandatory quarantine. And I agree that there is no doubt these forces play a large role in this increase, but I also want us to explore these issues from a micro perspective as well.
So in this episode, I talk about how many of us use distractions to manage our mental and emotional struggles, and how many of our distractions have been taken from us seemingly overnight. As a result, a lot of stuff of mental and emotional issues are surfacing for...
Anxiety & Leaps of Faith
In this episode, I talk about taking leaps of faith. Taking a leap of faith essentially means to act on something without being certain of the outcome. For example, when you ask someone on a date, you can’t be certain if they are going to say “Yes” until after you ask. Taking action is actually what produces a certain outcome. When it comes to anxiety recovery most of us strive to be certain before we take action. The problem is there is no way to be certain without taking action so we remain stuck. It’s a complete paradox! Taking leaps of faith is your path to achieve a life that is not controlled by fear and anxiety.
All right. Hey my friends and welcome to another episode of the restored mind show. My name's Matt Codde and I'm on this episode. I want to talk about the idea of taking a leap of faith. Now when it comes to, um, you know, working with...
Letting Go of Control During Crisis
As we continue this series on managing ourselves well during this pandemic. I want to discuss the concept of letting go of control. The overwhelming majority of life is beyond our control. And our inability to be certain about the future can lead to anxiety, which in turn, can lead us to attempting to control things to mitigate potential threats. The problem is that when we spend today trying to control tomorrow we miss out on what today has to offer. And if we miss out on today again and again, eventually we can miss out our entire life. In this episode, I discuss how letting go of control can help us have more internal peace and actually make better choices for our future.

Growing Through Crisis
In this episode, I am joined by my good friend Jason Schnitzer, to discuss the idea of growing through a crisis. Now this pandemic has forced us to encounter challenges like we have never seen before, but instead of viewing these challenges as something to endure we can view them as opportunities for growth. Check out our discussion as we dive into our personal realizations through this pandemic, and how we can all use this time to cultivate strength, hope, and love. Enjoy!

Anxiety & Resistance
In this episode, I discuss the idea of resistance, which is simply the unwillingness to accept or comply with what is currently happening. During this series, we've been talking about how we can best manage ourselves during this time of crisis. And the reality is that much of the pain and turmoil we experience comes from our resistance to the present moment. Resistance can add more layers of the problem and we are basically creating a domino effect on our community and to the rest of the world. So, it is right to manage our own emotions and practice self-mastery so we can deal greatly and properly with what is happening outside our control.
Alright. Hey my friends and welcome to another episode of the restored mind show. In this episode we're going to be talking about anxiety and resistance. So for those of you that don't know me, my name's Matt Codde and I'm a licensed clinical social...
