It was such a treat to have one of my longtime friends, Juna Mustad, on the podcast for this week’s episode of the Thriving Relationship Show.
As you will see/hear, Juna is so lovely, wise, deep, authentic, openhearted, and skilled at explaining things — and she also has a TEDx talk on a mindful approach to anger that I’ve sent countless clients over the years.
When it comes to anger, are you a “stuffer” or an “erupter” in your relationships (or a combo of both!)?
Either one does great harm in a relationship and to our own mental, physical, and emotional well-being.
Therefore, it’s essential that we learn how to healthily express this fiery emotion. Juna is here to help you do just that in this brand new episode!
I warmly welcome you to join us as we talk about…
