Ep 110 - How to stop overthinking re-release with Tahirih McLaren-Brown

Uncategorized Sep 05, 2022


Are you an overthinker? Perhaps you ruminate on past situations, worry about future events or are fearful of the judgement of others?

This re-release of one of my most popular podcasts with Tahirih McLaren-Brown is for you.

Overthinking can affect both our work and personal lives as well as how we show up with confidence as a leader. Our thoughts also directly impact the levels of daily stress we experience and how quickly we can recover from it.

We discussed:

  • What mindfulness is and how it can benefit you
  • How you can have more awareness and control of your thoughts and emotions
  • What you can do if you’re feeling worried or anxious about returning to the office
  • Ways you can handle uncertainty and even embrace it
  • A quick mindfulness exercise you can do anywhere to instantly ease your stress


If you’d like to learn the Four Step Pause that Tahirih shared and get access to seven days of guided meditations for overthinkers, you can find those here.

The career development community I'm creating for women is almost ready to pilot. My aim is for it to be an all-in-one solution for female talent development from early careers to senior leaders. To start with it will be a brilliant library of career development resources combined with an online community and spaces for women to come together and support each other.

I will be running a free beta version from 1 October – 31 December 2022 to build the community and refine the idea. To be part of it, you just need to pre-order my book and send a copy of your receipt to [email protected] with the subject line “Pre-Order”, or join my launch book squad!
