In this episode, we are diving into relationships which is Amy's zone of genius. We’re really talking about the difference between loneliness and being alone. You know a lot of you guys have mentioned to me and talked to me about the fact that you just feel lonely and we dig into that. We go into the common themes of what is blocking people from attracting love.

EP 046: More Courage, Less Fear with Kate Swoboda
This episode is all about courage and the reason why I love the whole idea of living a courageous life is what it leads to. When we’re on the edge of what is kind of uncomfortable, (I say this all of the time, my like feels like a constant wedgie because it’s always a little uncomfortable) what we get to experience by living on our edge and stepping into the things that terrify us, leads to so much. It’s truly where the magic happens. We’re not going to be able to understand how incredible we are until we push the edge of it and really explore what it is.
Kate Swoboda is Director of the Courageous Living Coach Certification at TribeCLCC.com and creator of YourCourageousLife.com, where she teaches people how to change old patterns of self-doubt and create courageous habits (and courageous lives) using the neuropsychology of habit-formation. Her first book, The Courage Habit: How to Accept Your Fears, Release the Past, and Live Your Courageous Life (New Harbinger Publications) will be on shelves in spring 2018.
In this episode, Kate shares:
5:07- The foundation of courage and how to access it.
10:28- How fear based behaviors become our default actions.
15:50- What fear actually means and the most effective way to heal our relationship with it.
20:10- The role fear plays in our lives.
24:37- What to do when we have a fear of failure.

This episode is a little bit different from what we normally do. We heavily focus on the mental, emotional side of binge eating and this episode brings you a science based approach. I respect it and I love it and I’m excited to hear how you guys dig it. I want to hear your thoughts so make sure you are commenting on iTunes and letting me know how you like it. Kathryn Hansen, the author of Brain Over Binge, talks about the neural pathways of our brains and how we develop habits and addictions. She talks about her own recovery, why conventional therapy wasn’t effective and the top tools she used to build new habits around food.
Kathryn Hansen recovered from bulimia in 2005; she is dedicated to educating & empowering women/men who struggle with binge eating. She is the author of "Brain over Binge," and "The Brain over Binge Recovery Guide". Kathryn also leads online courses to support individuals in achieving recovery. Her books & courses offer an alternative perspective--teaching brain-based reasons for binge eating, and departing from mainstream ideas that say eating disorders are the result of underlying emotional/psychological problems.
In this episode, Kathryn shares:
4:35- Why conventional therapy couldn’t cure Kathryn's binges.
6:00- Our brain’s scientific response to dieting.
