EPISODE 5 Show Notes — FOOLING YOUR FEAR!
Hi, I’m Tara Cole—aka RealityTC®, and I’m a writer from Minneapolis by way of the ad business. The Dog Mom Out podcast focuses on reinvention—the strangeness that is midlife—and getting back to the things we love while we navigate life’s craziness.
In Episode 5, I explore tools to manage fear: How our primitive prefrontal cortex responds to fear before our conscious mind does and what we can do to work around it.
