At the time of this recording, we were Pre-COVID, and although our day-to-day lives have changed, the topics discussed on this episode remain relevant.
Joining me today is Diana Gasperoni, a NYC Psychotherapist, Founder of BeWELL Psychotherapy and host of the podcast, BeREAL with Diana.
FUN FACT: Diana was a guest on TOL back in episode 14, which I have linked to below.
Today we talk about the link between physical clutter and emotional strongholds:
- Whether it’s taking comfort in our clutter
- Using distractions like shopping to make us temporarily feel better
- Placing an unhealthy value of ourselves based on stuff
Diana shares her thoughts about how to identify the line between healthy and unhealthy clutter.
(i.e.: unopened mail b/c you’ve been out late every night, vs. unopened mail for months on end and that’s a pattern of behavior)
We also talk about what to do if you suspect that a friend, spouse, child, or parent is struggling with emotional clutter.
In the second half of our show we talk about Diana’s new podcast, BeREAL– (who knew at the time of recording that her clinical advice would be so timely in light of our current climate).
I have been listening to her show faithfully on my walks, and I suspect you will appreciate her honesty, perspective and vulnerability as much as I do. If you liked this episode, make sure you check out the links below to listen and subscribe to her show!
