EPISODE 77: Healing Tools and Mental Health Tricks for Grieving with Laurie Singer

Welcome back to Warriors Unmasked - The Podcast!

Unfortunately, the old saying “life is not all rainbows and butterflies” is true…

Sometimes bad things happen and it leaves you feeling like everything has been turned upside down. Especially, when the bad thing that happened is the loss of someone near and dear to you. This type of pain can be emotionally messy for everyone involved. Subsequently, this process can take a long time.

Welcome back to another episode of Warriors Unmasked! While Clint is out saving the world, it’ll be just me, Chuck, here with this week’s guest! If you are new here, you should know this podcast is all about courage and mental health. It’s our passion to equip you with new tools and resources that will help you navigate whatever life brings your way.

That’s why I am so excited to introduce you to today’s guest. I know for some of you, this conversation will be life-changing and soul-healing. Hit play to meet Laurie Singer! Laurie is a licensed marriage and family therapist, board-certified behavior analyst, author, endurance athlete, and mental health advocate.

Learning how losing her 2-year-old son to cancer when she was only 26 led her down a path of deep depression, into total healing and finding her life’s purpose through her works today. Hear how this incredible transformation happened and the practical steps she took to get there.

During our conversation, Laurie shares one powerful mental trick she created using the simple “Green, Yellow and Red” formula. Mastering this one skill can start to set your brain free from anxiety and help you become a master of your own “triggers.”
