265: Breathe, feel the joy, and self-improvement sucks with Amber Hawken

We’re so excited about this Get Merry Podcast episode. We chat with the amazing Amber Hawken about the importance of breathing and how it allows you to feel more joy and be more present. We also chat self-improvement and how it can get in the way of experiencing joy in our lives.

Stuff we talked about…

  • It all starts with the breath.
  • The breath happens automatically but you can also control it to benefit your health.
  • When you don’t breathe deeply, it decreases oxygen to your brain. 
  • How to increase your tolerance for joy.
  • When you get so obsessed with self-improvement you can at times unintentionally strengthen your shame.
  • Step back, give yourself permission to relax and feel joy.
  • Daily habits that help you feel full and alive.
