Better mental health starts with Headspace

(object rustles) (mouse clicks) (gentle music chimes) Headspace Studio. Hello everyone, I am so excited to be with you for another Dear Headspace episode, and today I am joined by Rosie and Headspace Coach Corey, or as I like to call him Coach Corey. And we are gonna be answering questions about how to navigate life when you are still growing, how to handle a breakup when you are the one who caused it. And since it's still mental health awareness month, which we have to give a big yay for that, yay! We have a question about handling a coworker who is in your business and stressing you out. Lots of wisdom coming our way, folks, so let's get the show on the road. (soft music) 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. (soft music fades out) Hey, you two. Hello hello. Hey!

So here's Brian. (soft music) Hey, I'm Brian from Los Angeles, and I'm struggling with a coworker, and it's really stressing me out. They're constantly in my business, they're micromanaging me or setting me up in front of the boss. What I wanna know is how do I communicate or email with them and not sound like a jerk, but also stand up for myself? Oh. Wow. Brian, thank you for this question. I love a workplace question because it can be so difficult to navigate relationships at work, and you spend oftentimes 40 hours a week with people that are your coworkers, like sometimes like maybe more than your family, so they can be formative and difficult relationships. So I'm really interested to hear what you all think about this one. It's so interesting because I had a situation like this in my, I wanna say one of the first teaching jobs I had where I was working at a studio, and I was having a really difficult time with the head director. And it just seemed like the issues were always directed towards me, and in this sort of roundabout way, I'll give an example. The director would often to our meditation classes, and I would notice...
