Better mental health starts with Headspace

Pssss. (ambient musical notes) Headspace Studios. (ambient musical notes fade) Hey, everybody. It's Robin, and I am honored to be here with you for another "Dear Headspace." Now today, I am joined by none other than Eve. Oh, and we also have Chris here who is one of our Headspace coaches. He's gonna be joining us as well. And today, we've got questions about getting angry when people ask how you're doing, not feeling grateful enough, and we have a question about when stomach issues can cause anxiety while eating. So let's get right to it. Have you ever wished you had a wise meditation teacher on speed dial? Someone you can call after a long day? Someone you could lean on for their advice? Someone to listen and help you to see things differently? Welcome to "Dear Headspace," a podcast where I sit with a meditation teacher and we answer your questions. Hi friends, how are y'all doing today? Hello. Hey, hey. Everything's good? Everyone's good? I'm excited to be here with you? Very excited. That was like a question. That came out like: Are you excited to be here with me? That's kind of how that came out. You could hear that, right? You are happy to be here, aren't you? (Robin and Chris laugh) Well, I think it's kind of funny that I asked you how you're doing. Because our very first question is from Hannah who's having a hard time when people are asking her how she's doing. So I think maybe this is a great transition into her question to see if we can help a little. I think it is. Let's do it. All right, here we go. Hi, Headspace. My name is Hannah, and I am from the Netherlands. So lately, I have been staying at home for a couple of months now due to burnout and depression. Overall, just not doing well. And so lately, obviously, people have been asking how I'm doing. And I have noticed that this question brings up a lot of anger and annoyance. And I never know how to answer the question, so I try to avoid it or laugh at it. And I was wondering if you could help me approach this question in a more mindful way. Because I know that people are trying to be nice to me, but it's a bit triggering and overwhelming to get this question every day while I'm in the midst of this whole process of trying to get better. So if you could help me with that, that would be lovely. And thank you for all the advice. Well, thanks for your question, Hannah. Right outta the gate, my first thought is like, I get upset when someone asks me something that is like true or like there's something going on for me around it. And so it's interesting that Hannah, you know, has an understanding that she's triggered and has an understanding that she's looking for help with it....
