Get your joy on. #trypod

Let’s face it: most people could use a little more joy in their lives. Whether we’re dealing with positive or negative stress, it all builds up, and if we can’t find ways to let out steam in healthy ways, even the best of us will crash.

That’s why I decided to hype The Joy Junkie Show for #trypod. (If you don’t know what that is, you should check out the hashtag on Twitter.)

Who is the Joy Junkie?

Amy E Smith

This chick. Her name is Amy E. Smith, but her followers call her the Joy Junkie.

She’s a life coach. She swears a lot. And she’s one of my heroes!

I know, I know. You’re all thinking, “Adan doesn’t seem the joyful type.” Or maybe, “What is this goth-hipster weirdo doing listening to someone so peppy?”

Well, folks, you’ve found me out. I’m a secret joy junkie.

What’s The Joy Junkie Show about?

From the podcast site: “I help aspiring badasses (aka YOU!) stand up for themselves without being assholes. […] It’s time to let go of all of that people-pleasing and cultivate some serious self-worth.”

Amy and her husband, Mr. Smith, cover just about anything that could make us less-than-joyful. Debt. Stress. Evil family members. If you’ve been pushed down or dumped on by any part of your life, chances are, the Joy Junkie has a podcast about it.

Podcast newbie?

If you are a podcast newbie (I know there are some of you out there!), it’s pretty simple to get started.

  1. Download an app. You can try Stitcher, Podbean, or Podcast Addict.
  2. Search for and subscribe to podcasts. Your first search definitely needs to be The Joy Junkie Show.
  3. Download episodes that strike your fancy. Good ones lately: “Compliments + Criticisms: Why they both don’t matter” and “Is my partner a manipulator? Wait… am I a manipulator?
  4. Press play and enjoy.
