This week we talk with Dr. Kerrie Smedley about the reasonable doubt you may have after you've decided to take a career break and how to feel at ease about your commitment to World of Away.
Here are some additional resources Dr. Smedley recommends:
Self-Compassion.org - Dr. Kristen Kneff's scholarly work on how to use this ancient approach to be kinder to ourselves and get out of the self-criticism habit.
Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life - A classic book on using values and acceptance of discomfort to move toward a richer life.
The Happiness Trap - Another great Acceptance and Commitment approach to help us avoid looking for happiness in the wrong place.
Life is in the Transitions: Mastering Change at Any Age - A terrific new book on the importance of transitions for growth and how to cope with the inevitable stress of transition.
Valued Living Questionnaire by Kelly Wilson, Emily K. Sandoz, Jennifer Kitchens, and Miguel Roberts
